    Both look great on you! I would pick the left if you’re getting married in a church/indoor venue with high ceilings, and you’re having a reception in a ballroom/like space. It looks more formal and elegant. I’d pick the one on the right for an outdoor wedding and a more relaxed reception venue because it has that flowy skirt and floral detailing.

    I think the shape of the right dress is great on you, very flattering. 

    The left is very dated and doesn’t seem nearly as special. 

    If it has to be one of these two, go right. If you can continue shopping, look for dresses similar to the right and maybe try on different bodices to see if there are details of others you like more (maybe beading or different types of lace).

     Keep looking.

    The left is dated (right up there with that David’s Bridal dress with the corset back and usually red trim that was everywhere a few years back).  But even if you didnt care if it is dated, I think satin + rouching + pickups = rumpled bedsheets.  Satin is one of those fabrics that can go wrong quickly when you try to add too many design elements to it.

    The right strikes me more like a costume from a play and where the lace bodice ends hits at the widest part of your hips.  You have a great natural waist, but you are short-waisted and that bodice just cuts off in the wrong place and somehow emphasizes your short waist rather than elongating it.

     I’m in the minority here. I prefer the left one on you. I love the way it wraps around your body and then fallsi not a spectacualr skirt. The one on the right is a very generic style. The lefto ne has panache and wow factor + you wear it very well.

    paradisedaze :  i’d look for something that has the silhouette of the satin dress (which is a m0dified a-line; i think you could also pull off a trumpet if you’re willing to go a bit more fitted through the hip), but in a different fabric. what do you like? lace? beading? tulle? matte satin? avoid skirts with pick-ups, and just about any of those fabrics will feel more current.

    To be honest, I feel the dress style and on the left looks a little dated. I also don’t feel its flattering to your figure.  The the dress on the right hands down wins my vote.  It looks like a current style, bright, fresh and compliments your figure.

    I agree with those who say you can do better for the same money. I think the dress on the left is much more figure flattering but dated and too much going on. The one on the right makes you look much hippier than you really are. IMO you need something that will lengthen your torso, which this dress doesn’t do. 

    I agree with PP that if you do go with the dress on the right it may need to be brought in on the sides.
