give this one a try! click on the link below…..i’m not the most shapely of folks and this one really helped create one:)  in general, I’d say that a dress with enough on top to balance you out would be helpful. (ie straps, halter, cap sleeves)  Corset-style is also nice as it can help creat more of a waist. and as always, try the Spanx out…….i wasn’t a believer until i tried one on, and yes, you can be comfortable in one- good luck! if you want, i can send a pic to you (i tried posting one, not the most computer-savvy of folks;)

empire waist- best bodice for YOUR chest and neckline and A line with or without princess seams… I personally look better in a sweetheart neckline or a deep V (but not hookerish) but not a Halter- the straps are too close to the head and broaden my shoulders… I look hideous with the straight across strapless or a square/boxed style with straps. I’ll post pics later tonight!

nkang, I am definitely pear-shaped and that’s my dress (with a champagne sash)!

Stay far away from trumpet/mermaid silhouettes. I have never looked like I had bigger hips IN MY LIFE.
