I’m an apple.  Both are David’s Bridal dresses. A-line on left.  Empire on right.

I found that asymmetrical drop waist dresses were amazing for my apple shaped figure! Empire dresses tended to make me look pregnant, but the drop waist just put everything where it belonged.

MrsBrew:  Me neither. I was so glad when the consultant brought some out. I was trying on mostly natural waist dresses, which were disastrous. I couldn’t believe how well the drop waist/corset combo sucked in my stomach!

I love your dresses ladies!! I went with a ballgown because I felt like it was the most flattering and what I always dreamed of wearing. If I didn’t go ballgown I probably would have gone A line because of it’s flattering lines. I still don’t have a great pic of me in it.

My stomach is also my problem area. (Although the biggest part of me is my chest). I found that A lines and fit to flare dresses were the most flattering on me. I wasn’t interested in ballgowns because I think they tend to not flatter a figure as much. Here’s the dress I chose. I definitely made my tummy look flatter! This was just me trying on the sample, it’s definitely too long for me.

I’m apple, definitely my stomach is the problem area. I haven’t started dress shopping yet and am not looing forward to it. Empire does tend to make me look pregnany. I am thinking tea length witha  corset or fit and flare.  Rouching is my best friend! lol

Built in corset = girls best friend  🙂

(this is just my fitting pic, I haven’t tied the knot yet. And the dress looks much better with the shiny sash that goes around the waist that isn’t in the pic)

SgrPlum12:  this dress was a serious contender for me! I love the lace! I still got a lace dress and got my dress about 150$ cheaper than I would’ve paid with that one!

my problem area is also my middle. i had a kid and have that “mom pooch” i chose my dress because if hit really well up top, highlighted the smalled part of my body then was flowy down from there which hid my pooch.

MrsBrew:  I’m not sure what shape I am but I’m a plus sized gal and I know I wanted to cover my midsection. I found that the ball gown / a-line shape worked best for me. I’ll post 3 pics for reference. The pics where I’m wearing a veil were ones that I really liked but were not the one. The one with the pink flower is my dress. It was originally strapless but I’m not comfortable showing that much skin so I had some fabric added to it.  All are from DB. Pics may be huge. I’m on my phone. Good luck to you!
