Bridesmaid Dresses: the final 2

This dress, which we will call "Dress #1", looks less "sweetheart" in person:

"Dress #2", on which the rouching covers the belly nicely, has a corset-back:

The only concern I have is that the sweetheart neck on the second dress does dip low, and shows off "the girls" on women with an ample bosom. It's very flattering on women whose cups are not "over-flowing".

Update: What I meant to say is that it's flattering on smaller "girls", but shows off the girls in an unflattering manner on larger "girls". I just wanted to clarify what I was trying to say.

Those are both really pretty. I like the corset on the back, which kinda pizazzes it up ... but either way, they are both very pretty

My vote goes for the 2nd dress...the ruching on the belly will hide any insecurities and the corset makes it sassy!

I would watch the 'girl' action, though. If any of your bridesmaids have larger 'girls', it may be very uncomfortable on them to have them spilling out. And it WILL be a focal point for the photos--trust me, I've seen it. Not so pretty.

With that said, #2 is a pretty dress...

I like the idea of the corset back on #2, although the neckline of #1. Tough decision!

which one do your bm's like best? i do like the second one best, but i can see you concerns... either way they are both lovely.

they are both great but I think the bottom one is sexier.

I'm torn. #2 is obviously more popular with other readers. Hmmm...I still think #1 is lovely though. But I would go with whatever your bridesmaids love.

I'm with most people...the bottom one is my favourite!

I still vote for both of them! But I do love the rouching of dress 2...not a huge fan of corset backs, but I think it would be nice on this dress.
