    The pic doesn’t show (the photo is huge, so I won’t post it). 

    I think the difference in detailing (pleated bodice/plain skirt/drop waist) might not be flattering on  a smaller busty person, but I can’t really know without seeing it.

    I’m particularly wary of the dropped waist that cuts off at the top of the thigh. This is very hard look to pull off, and it might make your legs look only 1 foot long. Coupled with the harsh detailing “transition” (the seam/line that cuts off the pleating), I would suggest your second dress. I like the unexpected color!

    A dropped waist on a short person will unfortunately makes them look shorter.. 🙁  the second dress is gorgeous!

    Do you have an oppurtunity to try any dresses on? It’s really hard to go by model pics and “rules” for what’s flattering. I’m the same height as you and I’ll be rocking a style that is supposed to look terrible on short women (tea-length) but still looked good on me.

    As a sidenote: the former bra-fitter in me can’t resist telling you that you are probably not a 36D if you are a size 4 and noticeably busty! Have you tried 34Dirty Delete or 32DDD bras?

    I think the second dress will be overwhelming for a petite frame. And the first one has a really weird bow cluster on the hip. I’d keep looking for something. Have you tried anything on yet?

    The first one looks like a dress version of flood pants to me. It’s just an awkward length. The second one is pretty but personally I’d prefer it to be all the same color.

    Have you tried anything on yet? You might end up hating that style on your body. Be open to different options!

    Haha this is what I keep telling my sister. She’s 2 (w/o the boobs), but keeps telling me that her baggy banded, overflowing-cupped 34D fits perfectly.

    Wow your second dress is amazing and gives me dress regret lol! I too am short and a dropped waist makes my legs a foot long, the second dress would sit better on a shorter brides height proportions I think.
