I am also rather petite with boney/broad shoulders and no hips. I thought a strapless dress would definitely enhance that so I went with a one-shoulder, fit and flare, Prescilla of Boston inspired gown.

@buzzer713:  That’s how I felt when I started my dress search! I went with a strapless dress so I didn’t feel restricted up top, along with a mermaid/fit and flare bottom that gave me a defined shape that I felt like I was missing previously! Belts are a great addition as well as it gives a defined waistline! Sorry my photo is sideways!

I don’t have any pics of me in my dress yet but I went with tea length with an added halter strap. With the strapless, I felt like it showed off too much shoulder. Lace/cap sleeves were OK but I felt like I was bulging out. The halter strap feels like it cuts down on the amount of shoulder without being restrictive! Good luck!

I avoided fit and flare for the same reason….maybe I should have tried some on! I’m going for strapless + A-line…anything with straps just made me look super muscuar and I was not a fan.

@buzzer713:  I tried on a couple fit & flare and I actually thought they were quite flattering for small hips. Not a fan of mermaid so I didn’t try any of those on Wink
