I absolutely think you are heading in the right direction.  I think the dropped waist looks great on you.  It shows off your curves and gives you a very defined waist which can get lost in other dress types!  I see what you mean about this one not particularly being the right one, but I think you should find a bigger store with Future Mother-In-Law and hvae them bring all the dropped waist ones out first!!  If you could give us a budget, I’m sure we could suggest other designers!

I agree that the 3rd one is more flattering!

Yes definitely go with the drop waist style for your figure, it’s very flattering!

I thought the same thing about the drop waist because of my curves, but I thought the drop waist dresses actually made me look thinner and better. Glad you’ve found such a gorgeous dress (though honestly, they all look pretty great on you!)

 I think this would look great on you–ignore the stick thin model, I actually think it would look beter on you (you have a very pretty, curvy figure 🙂

Three all the way… you have beautiful hourglass proportions and the a-line shape in 1 and 2 just dont’ show it off.  I’m not crazy about the pick ups either.  I keep trying to google search gowns, but all I get are the chinese replica sites which don’t tell you the style numbers oif the original manufacturers.  grr.

I found that drop waist fit me best too and I am by no means a petite person.  Like you said they hug your curves and show them off pleasantly and by not adding any extra volume like ball gowns tend to.

Remember you can find the most basic dress and jazz it up – we did a lot of belt adding and brooch adding while I was looking.  The rouching has a good effect too I think!

Definitely in the right direction…keep it up!


Maybe pronovias?  They seem to have lots!

For real. I’m not a small lady and bought my dream dress last week.  I wanted simple but interesting.  I, too, was worried about the fit & flare/dropped waist, but fear not!  We can pull this off.  Especially if it’s corset-backed 🙂

This is AA 2124 (just one of several fitted dresses that I tried on and loved). It was $549 after $50 off at the store.  The sash is pinned on, but it was $95.
