I love the first one. I think it looks amazing with your shape and so so pretty.

The first looks better on you, but the second is so cool. I’d keep looking for a dress that has a wow back like the second, but flattering like the first.

@glimmerybride:  That first dress is gorgeous and stunning, looks perfect on you. I’d say it was the ‘one’. Truly!

@glimmerybride:  First one is absolutely GORGEOUS and looks like it was made for you!! Perfect fit, you look amazing…

Second one reminds me of a nightgown that my grandma wears (except luckily hers isn’t quite so low cut in the front, or see-through… just textured in a very similar way!).

They are both beautiful dresses. But you can’t go past the first one. I mean… sweetheart neckline, the way it shows off your waist, the lovely train, the timeless elegance.

The second one is more unique. The back is gorgeous, but revealing. It may be a more comfortable dress, as the first one has a corset back.

Would you prefer to have a timeless elegance to your dress, or something more unusual/unique? Would you prefer something that shows off your tiny waist, or a dress that has a spectacular back?

@glimmerybride:  the first one is nice, but it’s like so many other dresses. It’s not nearly as unique as the second. But the second is a hard dress to wear, being so flowy – you kind of need no curves at all to wear it successfully.

I think you should keep looking for something that has the uniqueness if the second with the structure of the first.

@glimmerybride:  What about this dress by Blush (Jim Hjelm)? It reminds me of the Jenny Packham one, at least on the top half.

 

Also, you probably already know this but Maggie Sottero has quite a lot of JP-inspired dresses out this year. Maggie dresses tend to be quite well structured so I’m assuming even their slinkier dresses might be more flattering than BHLDN, which are known for not having any boning or anything like that.
