    I’m not crazy about either. The first has a weird issue with the front fold. It is just so high and so dramatic that it looks weird to me. And I think that the second is just not as flattering as it could be.


    Have you tried on a full mermaid? Like to the knees? Or a full A line/small ballgown?

    @jamaes6:  I think they’re both gorgeous!!! And besides, they will be more flattering when altered, so don’t worry about that. 

    Does your heart tell you anything? It’s pretty tough, they’re both gorgeous! If you really want an opinion I think the second one but that’s because it just seems to flow more naturally to me, which is more in my style, but it really depends on your own style.

    @jamaes6:  The main center fold on that first dress is just so big and drammatic and so close to your hips that honestly I just focus on that region. I just think it draws a lot of attention to your lady parts. That sounds weird, right? Maybe it’s just the angle or photo. I think that you have a lovely and slender figure and that these dresses add bulk (the details are very big and textured) without adding more curve. I think a full mermaid or a full a-line would really show off your figure.

    @jamaes6:  I chose #2 becos #1 looks a bit weird at the bottom where it starts flaring out. The second one looks nice on you and shows off you great figure, but I’d say keep looking as none of these really stand out to me.

    Ooooh tough, they both look great on you. I think #2 wins by a bit for me because it is just one smooth dress all the way down instead of cut like dress #1.

    #2 seems to flow better, I agree with the PP that the stiffness of the skirt on #1 seems to jut out awkwardly. Maybe it just needs a crinoline?

    The second dress is gorgeous on you! I’m not crazy about the first one though, I agree with PPs about it sticking out awkwardly. It almost looks as if it was meant for someone either a lot taller or a lot shorter.

    @jamaes6: I voted 2 as I agree with PPs 1 looks like it’s got a fold at your waist. I’d like to see what a fit n flare and a dramatic A-line look like on you.

    Agreed with PP, you should definitely try Dress 1 again with a full-length crinoline. It will make a huge difference!

    I voted 2 as per PP the bottom part of dress 1 doesn’t seem to lay well. Although I like 2 I think if you are having a tough time, I would say try some more on. You have a lovely figure so I am sure most dresses will suit you, it is just which one makes you feel the most special.

    I like 2, it’s a nice an interesting dress (I don’t like 1)m however as people have said, I think you should keep looking for a while

    Dress #2  just flows better and I think it suits your body shape better, even though it is too big for you up top and it looks like it should be sitting on you higher – but that could be fixed wtih alterations. I also think you should get a better bra (at that neckline will give you a few bra options).

    I think it would also look better without a veil, or only a birdcage veil. The current one clashes with the illusion straps too much.

    There’s something about the texture of the embellisments on the first dress that I don’t like, and it makes you look weirdly proportioned, possibly because of the way the skirt is jutting out.

    I voted for #2, but I feel like if you’re not able to choose between the 2 than you haven’t found the right one yet. I personally would keep looking, but they’re both beautiful dresses!
