I don’t think I have pictures of any of the other dresses I tried on anymore, but I ended up with a fit-and-flare dress. I tried on a lot of different silhouttes, and there were a few ballgown type dresses that were flattering as long as they were fitted in the waist, but they just weren’t really my style. I didn’t try on any sheath type dresses. I think thats the only style I stayed away from. I just imagine they wouldn’t be flattering if I couldn’t see my waist in any way.

The process for me wasn’t too difficult but I did have a consultant at David’s who told me what my body type “shouldn’t wear” aka not form fitting. I ended up getting a dress I didn’t like. But then I found this one and knew right away it was PERFECT! This is a fit and flare.

nattybeee:  I am a true hourglass as well, and I 100% agree with you about shape. I really liked the idea of a toned-down ball gown dress (like a little poofier than an A-line, but not full out). I was in love with like 3 from BHDLN (the Ariane, Judith, and Maelin corset and Priya skirt to name a few), but when I went and tried them on I also felt like they made me look a lot bigger than I am. They just didn’t hit my hips in a flattering way. I (like you) also found that mermaid/fitted styles are more flattering on my hourglass shape. I don’t have any photos of other dresses, but this is mine that I went with. It’s actually an A-line that I’m having modified into a mermaid/fit-n-flare (it’s clipped in the back in this photo). 

I also agree with a previous poster that the sheath style is the worst on me – it hits my chest and hips only and my waist is completely lost.

I think fit and flare/mermaid looks slammin’ on hourglass figures of any size, those bridal consultants can suck it ;).

penguinwapi:  Wow, yuo look stunning! I love the darker underlay in your dress. Is that a blue-grey color, or just the photograph that makes it look that way?

spoiledvamp27:  Thank you so much! It is a blue-grey (it’s called “platinum” by the designer) – I was looking for something a little different so this relly fit the bill! Your dress was gorgeous as well!

People tell me I’m an hour glass.

I found that I liked fitted dresses but I liked the flare to start mid hip otherwise I felt it made me look very wide.

This is the dress I went with, it’s large around the top and needs fitted.
