Which dress

You were all helpful last year with an outfit for my friends wedding so have come for more advice for another wedding.

Both dresses on eBay. I love the short coral one but I'm worried it's too short.

I have blond hair if that makes s difference to the dress

The coral one, don't like the red one at all. Surely it's shorter than the coral one ?

I think the coral one! Its very pretty and bright. The other one is lovely too but it looks a bit more like it could be used as a bridesmaids dress in which case theres a chance it might clash or look too similar to the bridesmaids dresses.

I'd say the coral one was too short but it's hard to say without seeing it on. The other one is lovely and a bit more modest.

cocolepew think the red one IS the coral one! I saw it as the coral one anyway! the other one is pastel pink and cream

ChipIn Thu 06-Apr-17 12:36:12

Coco I'm confused. I thought the first, shorter one is the coral one?

Cocolepew Thu 06-Apr-17 12:38:02

Oh god sorry! It looks bright red on my phone confusedblush

The second one is much nicer smile

Gosh, both extremes here. The pale one is quite old fashioned and mumsy and the bright one I think a bit much for a wedding,,,too short and bright..

I'm not really sure the style of the coral one really suits anyone. Other one is more elegant.

Bleurghghghgh Thu 06-Apr-17 12:50:29

I really don't like the first one - it looks very cheaply made and very short - the shape is strange. Not a huge fan of the second one either and can't work out what's going on with the middle - it looks like a two piece?

kel1493 Thu 06-Apr-17 12:52:14

I'm not keen on either personally, but out of the 2 I'd say the 2nd one is nicer

BounceBounceSplishSplash Thu 06-Apr-17 12:55:19

The second, paler one, is nicer than the first. Regardless of your age and figure the darker one looks much too short for a wedding and would look a bit tacky.

I think you could get better than either dress though

RicketyCricket Thu 06-Apr-17 12:56:03

First one is godawful and the second is boring.

Have you anything that falls in the middle?

Bubbinsmakesthree Thu 06-Apr-17 12:56:45

The first one looks very short, almost like a playsuit? Definitely too short! Second one could look a bit bridesmaidy potentially. I think the style is one of those faux crop tops isn't it?

Racheyg Thu 06-Apr-17 12:57:13

I'm having a style crisis as you can tell. grin

I have no idea what suits me anymore. I want something that will flatter my mum tum

BusterGonad Thu 06-Apr-17 12:58:59

The first one looks a bit cheap (sorry) and I love the second one.

BusterGonad Thu 06-Apr-17 13:00:17

The second one looks more structured so it will hopefully hold your tummy in

NewPantsforaNewYear Thu 06-Apr-17 13:07:06

I think you could find something nicer than either of those.

Orangebird69 Thu 06-Apr-17 13:13:12

The coral one is truly horrid. The other one is ok ish. I'd look agsin if I were you.

The first one is bad. And looks v short.

The second I don't know. Can you do a pic with it on (and chop off your head grin)

DavetheCat2001 Thu 06-Apr-17 19:18:41

Not overly keen on either, but have to say the second one is preferable.

Do you have a budget in mind OP? Ted Baker have some nice dresses at the moment, but they are a bit ££.

Racheyg Thu 06-Apr-17 19:43:55

dave I don't fancy spending any more than £100.00 and would prefer it goes with silver shoes.

The reason I'm not wanting to spend too much is cause I'm losing weight and would be a shame to buy a 12 when I could be a 10 in the summer

Have you looked on chicwish and Chi Chi dresses? Might be something there
