SOOO I not looking forward to going dress shopping again. Im short fat and have huge tatas… 5’3 size 12/14 with 39 DDD. What kind of dress would look good on me? I went to david bridal and I was not inpressed with the selection. Here are some pictures from my last adventure of dress shopping.

crhenry79: I think you’re being really harsh on yourself because you look really great in ALL of those dresses!! #2 is espcially my favourite on you. There’s something about it…I think how there’s a pattern on top that goes down the dress a bit, and the slight rushing. I can’t really put my finger on, it but it looks fab and super flattering!
I think that the top of the dress on #3 highlights your tatas, so if that’s not something you want to do, I would avoid that criss-cross style on top. (It’s great for small boob people like me).
Overall, all 3 of those dresses are the same shape…and I personally think you’re rocking it! Your waist looks tiny and your stomach looks flat – every brides’ dream, right!?
You could try on dresses with a natural waist (or move the belt down to natural waist position) to see how that compares to the empire.

I think for your shape the best cut would be a strapless, slightly dropped waisted a-line. So, for example take the second dress you have shown here and imagine what it would look like if it gradually flaired out starting at the top of your hips. I think it would look stunning.
I wouldn’t go to David’s Bridal unless you have to stay under $800. If your budget is around $1000, try some Allure gowns matching the style I described above. I think you will be very pleased. You have lovely curves. Please don’t hide them under a babydoll/empire waist gown.

You do have a great figure. I think a dress that is more A line, perhaps even with straps would be more flattering and help balance the top of the dress with the bottom.

I think you look fabulous in all 3, and I’m not just saying that because #3 was my wedding dress! 😀 You really do look great, and they all flatter your figure, which is BY NO MEANS “fat.” Really, you look awesome!
That said, I loved my dress, but I had trouble keeping it up all night, and if you have “big tatas” you might want to look for something with straps to help hold everything in place!
<br />Don’t worry, you will find something that you love!

crhenry79: I’m biased in favor of the third dress too, as it was mine too. I didn’t have any issues with it falling down, though as I had straps added to it. Remember that is always an option!

I really like the first one on you! 🙂 They all look good it was my fave tho the third top does emphasize your large chest but it was very flowy and pretty

crhenry79: I love dress 1 and 3! I think if you wore it with a slip to give the bottom more volume, it would even you out perfectly.

crhenry79: I’m also plus sized and had trouble finding a dress. If you live near an alfred angelo store, they have a resonable selection of dresses in a variety of sizes. I don’t think you look bad in any of the dresses you posted, but if you don’t like any of them, I say keep looking. Of the dresses you posted, I like #2 the best.
Maybe something like these?
