Hi ladies,

Well I'm in the zone for a new navy dress. I'm trying to replace a gorgeous Martine et Francois Girbaud navy jersey sheath dress I bought 6 years ago but that has finally given up the ghost. I think I'll still wear it but it is looking old and quite worn.

I've seen both of these dresses by Freda at Matchesfashion.com. I'm loving the little navy dress concept, but I'm 5'2 and curvy (i.e. healthy weight, but definitely the breasts are out there). Both of these dresses seem to have fairly significant detailing at the bust - is it going to look strange, do we think?

I prefer the second one personally, but I would be grateful for any opinions and advice!

TIA :heart:

I like both dresses but the first one more. These dresses are for the same type of body and just make sure it fits yours. I think that if you have a big bust in the seccond dress it will come out and not accentuate your waist.

Agree, I like the first one more because of the bow.

Both are beautiful dresses but if you're concerned about how your bust will look/fit, I'd go with the first dress.

Good luck and let us know which one you buy!

hmmm, they are both quite similar really, i think by a hair I prefer the first one, but if you can just order both and try for fit and size

My vote if for the first dress. It is a classic, chic silhouette and the underpinning will allow for a hint of cleavage without going overboard. The second one is nice, but I think it would suit a smaller busted person better beause the detailing there will only add dimension to the bust line.
