@foreverli14:  First off, you look like hot stuff!! Those dresses are stunning on you! 

I’m wearing a ball gown myself. I’m a pear, but I’m like… some exotic type of pear, in that even A-Line wasn’t flattering on my hips and butt. 

ETA: Oh yeah, picture would be helpful.

I’m DEFINITELY a pear….. According to Maggie Sottero, my chest and waist were both size 14, and my hips were a size 16, almost 18. That’s a HUGE difference!!! :/

I went with an A-line, and the 14 fits perfectly, since the skirt flares out enough. 🙂


Here’s the size 14 sample:


And my super wrinkly, fresh-out-of-the-box dress:

@foreverli14:  Thank you!!! Love the dress you chose. Can’t wait to see the one you have made! Wish I had pics of me in my dress, it just takes so long to lace up and it’s stored at future in laws so don’t really go there without FH /:

I’m a very short pear so I understand your pain! I ended up with a modified A-line which I think may be the same as the slim A-line, and I thought it was great. The top accentuated my waistline giving the illusion of a trimmer figure while the flare of the A-line was perfect for the bottom portion of my body.

Here’s a pic of my dress when I tried it on:

I’m going with a slim A-Line.  My dress was ordered in a 10 to fit my hips, but my chest was a size 6.  I think my waist was between the 6 and 8.  I’m hoping to get the hips down a few inches!!!

Slim A-line…. had to have the top taken in quite a bit, and even then, my corset was a very narrow V… but these hips don’t lie.

I have small boobies. We ordered the dress to fit my hips and I’ll have to get it taken in up top (or else pad it lots!) My dress is a fit and flare.
