I’ve narrowed down my dress options and I can’t try ANY of them on… I am also the same size as chio.girl.. Size 26, The only one I was able to try on was the Colombia by Blue by Enzoani, and the picture of me in it is – is quite literally horrible – It was two sizes too small, along with a bustier that was two sizes too small that made my stomach bulge out the bottom and boobs bulge out the top.
here’s a regular picture of me for some help for you ladies..
I’m very tall too (almost 5’10)
The pictures are in order following the poll order – There are things I LOVE about each one of these dresses so I can’t pick. 🙁

I am a very straight up kind of girl; so, I am going to give you my very blunt honest opinion, which is what I think you want.
So here it goes.
The Cambria dress will look amazing on you. The sleaves are a very nice touch, and it’s a flattering shape; it’s gorgeous. It’s my first choice.
The Maggie Sottero Jenna dress is absolutly fabulous! I thought about this dress too. I know that you are in love with the fit and flare style of dress, but it’s just not going to flatter the tummy of a size 26 (I know because I am the same size).
Dress three is very matronly to me, I don’t like it at all.
The Victoria dress has a droped waist which is not going to be flattering either, but it’s a beautiful dress.
The Columbia dress is another very good option for you. It’s A-line so it flatters any shape. The band emphasizes the smallest portiion of your waist too.
I would go with the Cambria. It’s also a lace up back and they ROCK! The Columbia is a very nice choice though too.

Aww It’s so sweet of you to post in my thread! I’m gonna have to post in yours too! 🙂
I AM totally loving the lace top on the cambria though, and the Glamour Plus dress, but the Glamour Plus would have to be ordered from Australia, That’s where their “flagship store” is and they only have one store in the US, and one store in Canada. Both are VERY far away from me. My only stipulation with the Colombia is that it’s zipper back, and I’d want to get lace-up back because I LOVE lace-up back. The glamour plus has the option of zip-up or lace-up.

Some dress companies will make dresses that are traditionally zip-ups into lace-ups. You might want to ask.

Yeah I’m going to ask if I can make a decision, I’m having a hard time doing it 🙁
