I have my dress narrowed down to two choices, and I’m just not sure which one suits me better. I am 5’3″ on a good day and I have very broad shoulders and hips, so I’ve narrowed down my favorite dress type to a drop waist ballgown. What I love about these two dresses is all the beading and the fact that the line between bodice and skirt is blurred (i.e. no defined by a straight line across). Iguess i’m just wondering if I can really pull off the Allure (seeing as how there’s so much going on and I am so small) or if I should stick with the dress I originally fell in love with, Belle by Alfred Angelo. Any input bees?

I think the 2nd dress is much more flattering than the first. The off shoulder sleeves make your shoulders and arms appear much more broad than they are.
If you’re not sold on that dress try some other styles, too. Good luck!

I think the second one is much more flattering. The Belle totally swallows you, IMHO.

The Allure is FABULOUS on you. I agree with the previous poster that the off the shoulder straps actually make your shoulders look broader (I have extremely broad shoulders too so I totally feel your pain). I love the Allure on you!

I think the 2nd one since you mentioned you have broad shoulders and the first dress draws the eye towards them and accents them with the sleeves

Can you remove the sleeves on the Belle? I love the shape of the first one on you and the dress itself but I think strapless is more flattering on you

I think the Allure is beautiful on you!

You look awesome in the Allure, and I agree w/ the others, the 1st seems to swallow you vs. enhance your shape.

the second! the first one with the off the shoulder strap almost makes your shoulders look wider

Yep, you can totally take the sleeves off, i guess i didn’t post any pictures with it.

I think the cap sleeves draw attention to the areas you are self conscious about, while your shoulders actually look quite narrow in the last picture of the allure.

I like the first dress with the sleeves off. Very pretty!

Hmm okay now I wish you could repost a poll! I originally voted for #2, but #1 is BEAUTIFUL without the sleeves!

Personally I like the skirt of #2 better than the skirt of #1. Very pretty!

I’ve tried on that allure! It was such a gorgeous dress. I vote for that one. Plus it has much more of a defined sweetheart neckline than the other one which I’m a fan of.
