This one:

or this:

Still trying to decide. I need something for an engagement party (winter). I am average height, size 8-10 and 30 yrs old, if that helps. I know I'll probably get a lot of ppl saying they hate both, but if you have a preference, I'd be really interested to know. TIA

The FC one definitely. The other looks like its from Primark.

I love the Isabella Oliver one, but then I am very, very boring.

I think the FC one has been done now, tbh.

I prefer the FC one by miles. Do you have good legs? I have a similar style dress and you need neat pins to look petite iykwim. I feel the IO one is unflattering even on the model. What about the blue by the way? Might be a bit different?

i have nothing against Primark smile but don't want to look tacktactular. Surely IO wouldn't look tacky?!!

My legs are okay, nothing fabulous, but would consider getting the FC one lengthened if it made my thighs look hefty!!

I have heard many people talk about the Bex dress online but have never seen it on in real life, which is interesting. I obviously hang around very unstylish ppl!!

My DH prefers the IO one, but only because it looks very fitted I think.

I don't really like IO customer service though ...
