This has been more challenging than I could have imagined for various reasons. I’ve gone dress hunting myself so my own judgment with pleading to the consultant for opinions can only do so much. I’m completely torn between dresses now when it comes to style and my body shape. Here are some pictures of me in a few dresses, none of which were the right size for me so they did the best they could. 🙂
The dresses I am considering…
ANY thoughts, advice, suggestions would be great. I had the Allyssa on my original list, took it off after trying on more fitted styles, and added it back on after trying on the Sylvia (halter above). I saw the Rowena in the store but didn’t get to try it on, but I came across it online when I was tooking for something more fitted but with some skirt. I thought it was beautiful in the store. I tried the Adorae Louise on in the store, but I think the picture makes my hips look smaller than they really would look so included the above strapless picture. PLEASE HELP!

Given your voluptuous bustline, I think the Rowena would give you a lovely shape and more definition on top. The way it kind of comes up at the sides of the bust will, once properly fitted, keep the girls front and center 🙂

These are okay, but you have a va-va-voom figure, and these dresses just don’t feature it as well as they could. I say keep looking.

I like the Sylvia on you- the halter one in the second picture.

To be honest, I think that an a-line skirt would better balance your upper and lower body and best highlight your figure.

@Zusie: I agree. I feel like this shape is drawing all the attention to your bust, and an A-Line skirt would definitely balance proportions better!

Did you try on a dress with the gathers in it? While I loved the pics, they didn’t look right on me. Would suggest trying on a similar skirt before buying those. I personally like a-lines and find them super flattering.

@Burghbound: I tried on the Kendra and Mona Lisa, which have gathers. Seemed okay to me! 🙂
