Shorter length dress. Proportional?

I think the 58″ looks proportional and flattering. Maybe it’s the angle or the wider belt on the 61inch but they look quite similar to me… That said I always love looking taller so I’d probably wear the heels with the longer dress.

I actually think the second dress looks better on you, but it’s really hard to tell if it’s just the angle of the pics. Either way, that dress looks so beautiful on you!! Great choice!

I think it’s the different belt. I almost bought this dress and would have ordered it in the shorter length because I’m 4’11” and the shop told me it would be expensive to hem because they have to shorten it from the waist.

Seems like you’re imagining things to me! I think the 58 looks perfect and sits right where it should. Maybe you think it looks different because of the angle or the belt? Is the 58 a smaller size?

jachoo146 :  If you look at the crease in your arm in both pictures, you can see the length difference in the waist. I think they both look fine though. I think I prefer the fit in the bottom photo but it’s about how you feel and if you feel better in the other one, then get that one!

I think  the second looks perfect . I also like the belt way better; those big, dark, thick bling belts do nothing for the airy,  floaty dresses.

I agree with the PPs. Second pic , shorter, looks fabulous on you! I think it may just be the angle of the pic that’s causing you to feel like something is off.
