    wow - tough call! i think i like #2, but that might just be that piece in front of #1 that i don't like, like someone else mentioned. but you can pull both of those off very nicely!

      thanks girls....i am leaning towards two --- its just hard since i cant try it on....and the strapless is so freakin cheap....i will let you know when i decide...luckily my friends mom is a seamstress so i know she wont let me look bad and can fix whatever needs to be done... the back of the halter maggie is slightly different - still has the asymetrical bow and clasp but the top has lace - makes it super sexy....the nice thing about the strapless is it is corset which gives you a tiny waste and bigger boobies...lol...and the seamstress will add a partial modesty panel to cover a bit of the back so its not so open...you guys rock with all the feedback.. :)

          I like #2 better. It doesn't hurt that you look super sexy in it!

              Hi Toby, I'm late in responding but here is my two cents.. :-)

              #1) I'm sorry I just don't like the hanging fabric in the front, IMO it takes away from your small waist. BUT with that said I love the back of it and I really like the strapless look on you.

              #2) Is a very flattering on you, and I think when it's actually your size it will look amazing. However, I kind of wish the straps were a little thinner, I think with the thicker straps it takes away from your shape.

              So I know I wasn't any help because I didn't really give an answer on which one I like more. It really is a hard decision. My advise, don't "force" a decision on yourself if you don't like things about each one, then you haven't found "the dress" yet. keep looking.. And more importantly keep your camera with you as you shop so we can continue to see pics.. :-)

                I love #1 and don't mind the front piece at all. It looks great on you and I usually don't love strapless dresses.

                I also love #2 bcause clearly I love V-necks! I think they are so elongating...I'd almost prefer the V-neck over the halter too, but hard to say since you didn't try it on.

                Is the Maggie in your budget? If not $258 is CHEAP!!

                    Another late reply, I think you are gorgeous! My pick would be number two because it gives you a sexy, elegant look. I like the fabric, the way it hangs, I wish I could pull it off.

                      I say go for the halter - it's clearly your dream dress! and you can't deny, it's gorgeous! Can you contact them and find out where you'd be able to try it on?!
