I was veering towards #1 to begin with (although it wasn’t an easy choice, since you look amazing in both!), but now that I’ve read aboout your amazing weight loss, and how jazzed your fiance would be to see you in #1, I’m sticking to my guns! You look spectacular!

Well 1 is clearly too small from the waist down, so I find it  a bit hard to judge its real merits. It is certainly body-shape -revealing and given your admirable  weight loss i  can see why you mght wish to display that. 

But 2 looks SO great on you , totally bridal  and add to that the idea that maybe you could save the body reveal for your husband   , with a  seriously knockout dress to wear on honeymoon ….?

My vote is dress #1. While #2 is pretty it doesn’t do anything for me, but that probably due to the fact that I am not a huge all over lace fan. Dress #1 really compliments your body/figure & I prefer the style. 

Go with what makes you feel the most beautiful & awesome job on your weight loss! I’ve lost alittle over 70lbs too & I understand how hard it is & not feeling quite right in more body hugging dresses. You’ll look amazing no matter what!

Dress 2 is gorgeous. Since you’ve previously posted questioning the other one I think it’s a sign that you are not totally happy with it and should move on.

Honestly, I don’t think either is the dress for you. This is your second post concerned about Dress #1 so it’s obviously something that is stressing you and making you feel uncomfortable and if you are already feeling that way about it, it’s probably not a great idea to keep forcing yourself into trying to be ok with it. Dress #2 is fine, but you’re right it doesn’t have a wow factor and you also don’t seem to love it. If I could pick a dress for you I would go with a more streamlined, body accentuating dress like your first one, but lose the unrelieved crepe on the bottom since I believe that is what you are disliking and not the actual shape of the dress.

Dress 2 is amazing.

I think what causes me to pause on dress 1 is that (speaking of the front only), the lace just stops too abruptly.  It’s like your body is cut in half too suddenly.  It seems like the eye is just drawn straight, immediately to your hips.  Very nice hips, but it’s a bit too, stark for me.

I could definately see dress 1 working if a bit of lace was added somewhere on the bottom section, meaning, somewhere across the hip/crotch area, trailing….  I am not a seamstress, wouldn’t have a clue, but if you wanted to keep dress 1, that might be a thought?

But 2 is just a dream dress to me and you rock that thing!

I guess some of it depends on your venue, but I think Dress #2 is stunning on you.  Dress #1 is pretty, but I’m a huge fan of your new choice.
