Do you tend to trust the judgment of your friends? If my friends told me that a dress wasn’t particularly flattering, I’d probably be tempted to believe them. Keep shopping!

if you love it that’s all that matters… but what do you think about how it flatters you?

And, as far as your friends’ comments – how much of that is because the dress doesn’t actually fit you? If you have it altered, will it flatter you better? Or is it overall the shape?

Will the shop hold it for you?

And what about the other dresses you’re trying on? Are they the same silhouette? or different? You should be finding that some silhouettes look better on you than others, and you shouldn’t try on any that are different than that.

Good luck!

if you absolutely love it and will regret not getting it, then go for it. All that matters is that you love it.

The top one is my dress, so I am biased towards it!

I think the bottom one is very pretty–it does a lovely job of showcasing the lines of your waist and hips. I only wonder if a seamstress couldn’t lower the neckline a bit. I think I prefer the look of the other two lower cut dresses over your bust. A little trimming and it could be perfect!

Have you considered an empire waist dress?  They look really flattering on Asians. Rouching is also good.  It really looks good on every figure.

I would consider trying some more dresses before you decide on one.  Even though it may only be the last dress in the store, if you get the name of the dress maker and style number you may be able to find it at another store or even online!  They just use it as a tactic to try to buy a dress right away.  Trust me, they’ve tried that sales pitch on me before.

I like the third one and in the picture I actually think it does show off some curves. I would spend some time to weigh your decision.

I like the first one! I think with some alterations it would be even more flattering.
