    @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.

    @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.

    I think the second dress looks great on you!

    @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:
