Here are some photos of me.

Was thinking the same thing with pictures.
For now…that black dress you were in looks stunning. I’d try the dress that best matches that? Something with flowing shoulders ..caplet sleeves. (Chiffon perhaps) Also a waist cincher/belt.

It’s hard to tell without seeing them on you, but I think the Goldie would be really flattering for a curvier body!

Have you tried any on? It’d probably be best to go try them on and take pictures of them on you! That way we can really see what the dress will look like on your exact body type.

wow thats alot to choose from! I think I like Harlow, Lieli and Polly the best. Actually I REALLY like Polly 🙂

I love these! I think I pick Clarissa cuz I love the little bolero. But I also like Polly, and Florencia looks really figure friendly… I vote against anything with a big bow/flower on the belly, I don’t like anything with a major detail so far from the bride’s face, it’s distracting. Post pics if you try them on! good luck

I like the Clarissa best. I think you need something more fitted in the waist. Something like Polly is not going to be flattering (I say this because we have similar bodies). When the dress pulls away it adds pounds, whereas dresses that are fitted in the waist and hips will be much more flattering.

Florencia, Geraldine, or JSM1103. They all have some kind of diagonal detail along the waist which is very slimming. It emphasizes the hourglass shape and not the wobbly parts. As a bride who had a size 16w wedding dress, I found dresses with an empire waist to be very unflattering. I looked like I was pregenant. They may look fab on you but I would definitly try the style on before ordering.

Only way to know is to try them on. I put on dresses that I *knew* would look horrible on me just to make my Maid/Matron of Honor happy and OMG, they actually looked great on me. So you just never know.

My problem is that I am from Puerto Rico and any store here, has these dresses for me to try on 🙁 Actually they did not had many size 18 dresses (which is very sad for me). It has been a nightmare what I thought was going to be the best part of planning a wedding. I’ve cried so much because of that.
The other fact is that I am tall and many dresses were too short, so they told me I need to order one. I decided that if I was going to order something that I have not try on, it had to be a Maggie dress because of the great fitting those dresses have. So now I am looking to order a really pretty one. And I have to decide right away, because my wedding is on december 28 and the dress will be arriving Puerto Rico the second week of November :S

So you have to order your dress without trying it on? Have you tried David’s? They will have your size. Here is the address
65 de Infanteria Avenue
Carolina, PR 00985
Even if you don’t buy one of the dresses, you can try them on to see what looks best on you. It will help you decide which one to buy. Also, you can order some of their dresses online and send them back if you don’t like them.

@miss.skinner: Thanks for you comment. I was looking then to the wrong dresses. Empire waist is worst. So, should I look definetely to something more fitted…OMG!!

@KoiKove: Thank you. I went there a month ago. I fall in love with an Oleg Cassini but they had it only on size 16 and it looked horrible so I could not see it right. At that moment I decided not to order it on size 18 because it was going to arrive on november and if I still did not like it, they did not had many options for me, because most dresses over there were too short. Actually they were going to order that Oleg Cassini extra long for me.
