    It’s hard without seeing the dresses actually on you but I absolutely love the first dress! However for a pear shaped body I think maybe the third one.

    It’s really hard to know which to vote for without seeing similar styles on your body.

    I’m guessing three for a pear shaped, but they are all pretty!

    I love no 2! (I love everything Rosa Clara), but I think it is best suited for a slender body type.  I imagine 3 would flater you best.

    I picked #3 because I think the natural waist is most flattering for pear shape, it will emphasize your little waist rather than hips.

    I liked dress 1 the best, but like others said, it’s hard to know without seeing it on you. Dress 3 would hide a pear shape, but the first two dresses might look totally fine depending on your shape.

    I love #3 but I would like to see them on you. I dont know if the first one would be flattering on a true pear shape. I do loveeeeee Rosa Clara dresses though so I also like #2

    @ksus07:  i love #1.  i think it will be the most flattering for your figure.

    you should definitely try them on if possible or at least similar styles/silhouettes to get the best idea of what’s best for you.

    Wow I would have a hard time deciding too if I were in your shoes!

    Like PP’s said it depends on what you want to do, highlight your shape or hide it? I think #3 would hide/minimize your hips because of the waist detail and shape of the skirt. The Rosa Clara would be great at highlighting your figure. I think the ruching/knot-thingy would also look very sexy. Plus I’m a sucker for anything Rosa Clara.

    @ksus07:  I love dress #1. Which dress did you end up picking?

    I’m also pear-shaped (around the belly & hips), but our bodies could be different! From my personal dress experiences, dress #2 won’t fit well as it hugs around the front waist too much.

    Dress 1 is gorgeous and could most likely work with a good corset/bustier underneath if fitting is going to be an issue.

    Dress 3 would be the safest choice as the waist seems higher. During your fitting, you might want to ask your seamstress to see if she has got any petticoats/underskirt to try with the dress. It could help shape the dress better, if needed.
