If I love the fit and cut of this dress|FRNVBFL
Will this one also fit well?|FRNVFRL

Ive got my 30th birthday night out (Wednesday) and Christmas party (Friday) this week. I bought the first one for my birthday and I love it. It's truly the most flattering dress I've ever worn (I'm size 16 with a tummy) so decided to order the other one for Friday without trying as I thought they were the same but different patterns. However on john Lewis website they're described quite differently and I'm worried now it won't fit as well. Need to decide today without trying it whether to risk it or take another dress as I won't be back home before and can only take a small bag.

Do you think they're similar enough?

Yes. they look the same and the string of letters they are described by only differs in last three letters that refer to butterfly and floral. They have same style name, Monica and same colour, french navy


if that's not enough, you could wear butterfly one during day today jsut to set your own mind at rest perhaps?

Thank you. That's what I thought. Just got really confused as John Lewis website describes them totally differently. The first one they have as 'dress shape : wrap' in product information. The second one they have as dress shape: draped. Can't link on phone!
