Please help me decide on a dress!

I am a little too sleep deprived to make an informed decision about a dress I want to wear for an informal housewarming party I will be hosting next week. I am still breastfeeding my 4 month DS, so my choices are limited. I'm 5'10" and a size 10, pale and blonde.

dress 1

dress 2

Which one should I wear?

If you're petite I'd go for the first one over a maxi dress. The zip will probably also be rather helpful for breastfeeding.

I prefer the first one

The first one

As you are 5'10'' and slim I'd go for the maxi, I think the first one is a bit boring TBH

I prefer the first one. I think the maxi looks a bit boring grin

I prefer the maxi grin

I like them both. [helpful]

Is it a daytime or evening do? The maxi is more informal and day-wear but if you're going to be up and down stairs it could be tricky.

First one, definitely

The maxi if you're tall, and it's going to be informal smile

Kittens, alas I am certainly not petite. They are both suitable for breastfeeding, the maxi has cross-over ruched panels over the bust that you can just pull apart over the milk supply.

It will be a daytime, informal party.

Otter, thanks for the stairs tips - I thought that I would be fine just pulling it up when rushing up and down, but I have not considered that I will have my hands full. Did I mention I needed some sleep? grin

I do like them both, hence the dilemma. Most of you prefer the first one, but my only reservation is that it is a little too dominatrix iyswim. I am over-thinking this, aren't I?

I prefer the first one but think it probably more of a 'going out' dress and the maxi is much more suitable for an informal housewarming.
