    I don’t dislike the dress on you, but I do think the ballgown is more flattering…

    I think it’ll look better after alterations but the ballgown looks more flattering.

    Both are pretty but I like the ball gown more. And I’m not usually a ball gown girl.

    I’m totally shocked by these responses.  I am through-and-through a ballgown girl but I prefer the fit and flare on your shape.  I think the ballgown is like you’re hiding your beautiful curves behind a skirt, and the fit and flare is celebrating them!  I’m totally a ruler-shape so I am jealous of your hourglass figure.  I think you rock this.  What’s the story on the sash?  Maybe it would help to try on a more dramatic one to highlight the tiny part of your waist and create more contrast like the ballgown does?

    I prefer the ballgown, but I am not a fan of fit and flare on ANYone.

    @blushbambi:  The ballgown is much more flattering IMO.

    I find the ball gown to be a bit plain. The fit and flair is HOTT in the 2nd photo 🙂 Ignore the other posters, you bought the dress you did because you saw something in it that the ball gown simply didn’t have. Quit doubting and enjoy your beautiful dress!
