Which dress is nicer?

I really like them both and are very much my style, but I don't know which one to keep.

The first one is the nicest. And it has pockets. I love my dresses to have pockets.

Paintbox Fri 14-Apr-17 16:30:45

Thanks. It actually has one pocket which I thought was a bit odd but I do like it!

I think it depends on which would best suit your figure, they are cut very differently, but fabrics and prints very similar. The top one would look awful on me as I'm pear shaped, whereas the second with the nipped in waist and full skirt would look good.

Keep both. You won't regret it.

Or, think ahead. Which one would you regret not buying more if you were looking back?

I prefer the second one but think it depends on the shape.

Second ine

I like how they both look on me which is what's making it difficult. I am kind of tempted to keep both but as the print is so similar that it seemed silly to keep both.
I know they are both midi length floral dresses, but is one of them more fashionable than the other do you think? I would wear them with a bright lipstick and black boot/sandals like the model in the green dress

Love the second one!

BreatheDeep Fri 14-Apr-17 16:48:28

I see your dilemma if they both look nice! They both have nice points but they are quite similar. How long do you have to return them? Maybe keep trying them on over a week and see if either becomes a favourite. (not suggesting you wear them before returning though!)

I don't think the first one even looks good on the model.

Second is prettier and the colours easier to wear.

I much prefer the second - like the print and the detailing at the bottom.

Not keen on the blue roses

MichaelJacksonsGlove Fri 14-Apr-17 17:07:36

I think the cut of the first looks a bit too covered up- high neck, long sleeves etc. It looks a bit dated. I prefer the detail and cut of the second.

user1483387154 Fri 14-Apr-17 17:08:34

The first one seems completely shapeless and sacklike.
The second is nicer

Paintbox Fri 14-Apr-17 17:10:39

Second I think it is then, thanks!

MikeUniformMike Fri 14-Apr-17 17:11:10

the second one is much better than the first one.

Mmmmcakes Fri 14-Apr-17 18:04:46

The second one, I think the first one is a bit frumpy

burnishedsilver Fri 14-Apr-17 18:13:25

Second one.

emilybrontescorset Fri 14-Apr-17 18:37:50

The second one.

LobsterQuadrille Fri 14-Apr-17 18:37:58

Definitely the second one - much more shape to it, nicer pattern and I would have said more fashionable.

hippadoppaloppagorillapig Fri 14-Apr-17 18:39:59

I like the second one, but it's more my style and would suit me better! Depends on your style & what suits you. I just think the first one is a bit shapeless, although probably more "fashionable."

Paintbox Fri 14-Apr-17 18:40:04

First one all packaged up to send back, thanks all!

Botanicbaby Fri 14-Apr-17 20:13:44

Love the second one too! smile

I was wondering why everyone liked the one I didn't like, then realised I had opened the links in the opposite order - the black and green is far nicer - the Warehouse one has no shape at all.
