    I think the beading on the top and tulle on the bottom is a prettier combination. What I like about the second dress is that it comes to your natural waist. It flatters your figure well. I would look for a dress with beading on top, tulle on the bottom, that comes to your natural waist. 🙂

    Well I think you look fantastic in both dresses so it is hard for me to chose, but if I had to I would say the second dress edges out the other one. I just think the simpleness of the bodice is perfect and I like that it hits your natural waist as opposed to the first one where’s it’s more of a dropped waist which I find to be less flattering. I have similar body type as you and I think the dropped waist made me feel wider for some reason (you don’t look like you are but it was just a factor in my decision too)

    P.s. I really don’t think you should add sleeves. I find that sometimes the sleeves are counterproductive and while they cover your arms they actually draw more attention to them. I say keep it strapless because your arms are seriously fine and are not big whatsoever.

    These are a bit different, but just to give you some ideas:

    I prefer the second style, but I think it comes down to the specific dress… I would say though that I think the skirt in the second dress looks like organza, not tulle…?

    I think the shape of style 2 is far better on you. I’m rarely ever a fan of a dropped waist as in style 1, I think having the flare sit on the smallest part of your waist is much more flattering.

    HMm, I really don’t think the shapes vary much between the photos. They just look like ballgowns to me. The waists though. I find the drop waist in photo 1 dated and unflattering on the torso! So I’m going to say number 2.

    mydress :  Not sure how you can go past the first one. That’s GORGEOUS! If you can add sleeves than It’s perfect ( but really your arms are good…no need to worry)

     I wore a dress with a beaded top for my sister’s wedding and I end up sick and tired of it. It was very heavy and I end up with pain in the shoulders becouse of the weight. If you go strapless you won’t have this problem, but either the dress is very, very fitted like in not being able to breath, or be sure you are going to be pulling the dress up all the time. Believe me, it might not look like that when you first try it, but with the hours it does.

    Also, the friction on the inner part of the arms wasn’t the most pleasant . So, as gorgeous they might look, I wouldn’t go for a  full beaded top.  It’s just too uncorfortable.

    I voted for #1 but they both look gorgeous. I like the top detailing of #1 which is why I voted for it. Good luck!

    mydress :  you look dramatically thinner in the first one. Second one you look bigger than you actually are plus it looks inexpensive compared to first
