Hmmmm…. I’m thinking that a slim A-line or sheath dress would look good on you. They’re also generally light and easy to move in, which is always nice. I bet a dress with a natural waist would be flattering. Also, I don’t know how you feel about showing your chest, but a lot of dresses have an illusion neckline like in the first picture – sometimes out of lace – if you want to cover up a bit. 


Strapless would probably not be that comfy for you, as they generally have boning and that gets kind of uncomfortable if you don’t fit the dress really perfectly. 


I hope you have a good time wedding planning!

@AlishaE:  Sheath or column dress – something  I could not pull off because I have too many bumps and curves. Goddess could also be nice. You really need to try on different ones to see what works.

@AlishaE:  Nah, column is for ladies that are tall without much in the way of curves usually, like the one below. Sorry I don’tknow how to make it smaller

Below are two different goddess dresses – kind of flowy and soft 🙂

I think that would look nice.  I’m not a huge fan of the flowery bodice, but it would help give you some curve.

@AlishaE:  First, congrats!!!!  For a dress I was actually going to suggest a shorter, flirty dress like the last two you posted.  But I was thinking tea length.  More of a 50s and 60s vibe like the first photo you posted.

Something pink as requested:

@AlishaE:  I have dressed a male in a sheath dress before for a male beauty show thing and we had lots of problems with uh..the bulge lol so I’m thinking something like @beachbride1216:  posted would better fit you. 

Also, congrats on your wedding 🙂

@AlishaE:  I think the short dress is super cute!!! The flare out skirt will give you more curves if that’s what you’re looking for. (I think it’s fine to look slender and less-curvy without worrying about that being less feminine, though. Plenty of women are not curvy.)

@AlishaE:  Go for the tea length or other shorter lengths as you’ve got great legs!

The pink one posted by beachbride1216 is great! Classy yet fun!

In the end get something makes you feel like a goddess, your wedding is your day and you should feel beautiful in your dress 🙂

You look like you have legs for daaaaaaaaaays! So, you’re lucky! But remember most dresses aren’t built for tall people. If you go the short and playful route, make sure the length is still apropos.

I’d say go long and slender – because your body type would be fitting for it (from what I can tell from the two posted photos.)

Also, Congrats! 🙂

@AlishaE:  I think you are super adorable and maybe a dress with empire waist. Empire waist is very flowy!!
