    I picked the second dress mainly because if you don’t have curves then maybe the middle of that dress would be better to give you a waist? I think they’re both beautiful though!  You should try on a mermaid dress to see how it looks.

    They’re both gorgeous. I think the best thing to do would be to find somewhere to try them both on.  When I started looking, I brought in a whole bunch of pictures of dresses I thought I wanted…none of them ended up being the “one” and couple looked awful on me.  In the end, the dress ended up being something completely different than what I thought I wanted.

    I voted for the second one, I’ve never tried on one like the first but I imagine it requires a rocking physique (not saying yours isnt!) I just imagine it being harder to pull off. I really like the straps on the 2nd and I’m not usually a strap kind of girl.

    Dakota.  The way it flares out at the bottom is stunning.

    I tried on the Allure and it is cleavage city!

    You need to try them both on, plus other dresses and styles (be open to anything and everything) before you decide. What a dress looks like on a model is not what it look like on you since everyone is built differently and model pictures are always airbrushed.

    If you have no curves, the second dress will be more forgiving. The first dress requires curves to stay in place.

    I agree with PPs that you definately need to try them on or at least, other gowns of the same shape. However, the first one is very fitted until it flares out a mid-thigh and I personally think that requires some curves to pull it off. The 2nd dress is equally as beautiful but I think the skirt would be more flattering and comfortable.

    I haven’t tried of any dresses yet. lol! But according to the magazine i’ve been reading…i would go with Allure 8634. It has that semi empire and A line silhouette that would supposedly help your out with curves if one had none.

    i think the 2nd one would suit your body shape more, but you really need to try on different styles to see what looks best!

    @Amaryllis:

    May I suggest something of this kind of silhouettes. Where the waist deffinitions sits high and gives you look of wider hips.

    Ei is also right about needing to try the dresses on to see first hand.

    #2, I think it would suit your figure better
