I think you have a lovely figure, and that is a very beautiful dress. However, I voted for you to keep looking. I would love to see you in a different silhouette, such as an elegant, A-line ball gown.
I think you can find something more flattering and I REALLY dont likw the shine of the satin. Please keep looking!
Thanks everyone. I’m going to focus on dropping a few pounds and continuing the search. Appreciate all your opinions!!
Something more like the lace one I tried…
It’s a gorgeous dress, and you have a great figure, but I agree with PPs, you need something that shows your waist more and skims past your hips. Both dresses seem to excentuate your hips, an aline or ballgown would suit your shape better in my opinion
@Crabcakes1027: The lace dress you just posted in your update is basically the same silhoutte as the first dress you posted, except that the photo does not show it with a belt/sash. Do you happen to have any photographs of yourself in some dresses featuring any other silhouttes?
I think you look GORGEOUS! But if you’re not madly in love and you don’t feel like it’s “The One”, I say to keep looking!
@Crabcakes1027: To clarify, in case it wasn’t clear, there is NOTHING wrong with you or your body! You have a gorgeous figure, and I actually don’t think you need to lose any weight at all. I just don’t happen to find the shiny fabric flattering to anyone, and I think a different shape may make you stand out a little bit more. As my mom used to say when we would go shopping and I would try on something that didn’t look great on me, “It’s the dress, not the girl.” Hope that helps 🙂
