@selinak2007: I prefer the DB edition. It flatters your figure much more. 🙂

Sorry, I don’t find either too flattering for you. You may want to have a look at the Bonny plus size line, I’ve seen some really great dresses from them.

@Atalanta: I love alot of the bonny dresses that i have seen but i cant seem to find alot of places that carry them in my area. You say they are not flattering, what sort of dress do you think would be flattering on me?

@selinak2007: I personally don’t like either of the dresses. But, I think the DB version looks better on you than the AA.

I prefer the alfred angelo, the DB one seems to have an arrow pointing to your crotch, and I just can’t get past it.

hmmm, I’m really not good at pointing out a style that I think works on someone without seeing them in it, but I can tell you what I don’t like about these. Both of these dresses have accents on the top and the bottom. This brings all the attention to your mid/buttocks area. So I’d suggest trying on dresses with either just top accents or just bottom accents, or no accents.
I think I’d like #2 without the bottom accents. The back of it is very pretty and if the front had an extra fold instead of the details then I think it would look much better.

I think the DB version is better even though they’re both similar…that said neither are my favorite but if you love both of these, I’d go with the DB one. 🙂

I think they’re both too busy and divide you into too many sections. Maybe try somethign with a skirt that is consistent throughout?

I agree with pp’s that said they didn’t really care for either of them on you.
I would pick something with an empire waist would look amazing! It would totally show off your amazing rack! 🙂
IDK if they are your style but there are some amazing options.
The tucks in the bottom of the dress seem like a bit much, also.

Sorry I don’t care for either one either.

I think the second dress looks great on you!

Since alot of bees are saying they dont like either…i have added that as a 3rd poll option. Gosh im really glad i decided to poll this.

@selinak2007: Neither. The sweetheart bustline looks amazing, but the heavy pickups and the basque waists…not so much. A basque waist is hard to pull off (mainly because it tends too hit at an awkward part of the body).
I would suggest going for more natural waist gowns to show off your nipped-in figure. I can tell that the A-line and ball gown silhouettes really work for you (but with a higher waistline). More like these:
Sottero & Midgley Dorothy
Alfred Angelo Disney Platinum Cinderella

@MlleFabuleux: Thank you for the picture. I really like where the waistline hits on that one. Unfortunately, being plus size doesnt give me many options to try on as it is but im going to look around to see if i can find some like that!
