    Hi bee! To be honest, I’m not LOVING either one. Based on what you’ve said you’re looking for, I like B better on you because the belt and volume create more of a waistline than A.

    Of course, I am just a stranger on the internet, so if you love either one, go for it! Do you have any other favorites?

    I prefer dress 1. It looks like Berta’s “Amata” gown and would be so pretty in your size. If you use nude colored sheer netting in the neckline plunge would that give you enough coverage? I don’t think opaque fabric would look right.

    Have you tried on ballgowns?  Your body shape is basically an inverted triangle – you have broad shoulders and very slim waist and hips.  You will want something with a fuller skirt to balance you out.

    Out of the two, B looks better with the fuller skirt.  It appears to hit you at your natural waist whereas something about the waist in A looks like it hits you in an odd spot. I would keep looking though and try on some ballgowns and A-lines that have fuller skirts.  

    You can also Google wedding dress styles for inverted triangle body types to get an idea of dresses that may work best for you.

    Dress b!! You look stunning in it. Dress A has the torso going too low, looks like half the dress and hits the hips in a weird way, shortens your body. Dress b all the way.

    leesahmarie :  of the two, dress B but only because the waistline on it sits higher. But i think you can do better. 

    Its a good style on you, but you want to make sure to get a dress where the waist hits at your natural waist and isn’t low or a drop waist (like dress A). The natural waist will help make you look curvier since the fullness of the skirt will add volume to your hips. Dress A, the waist is too low and makes your hips look small, making you look less curvy.

    Neither one flatters your figure. They’re just kind of “blah”. Keep looking!!

    Dress B for sure, you look so happy in it as well. It’s much more suited to your figure in the torso!

    You have great arms and decolletage. So I agree that a strapless ballgown would look great on you. Also agree that a drop waist doesn’t work for you

    B is lovely! It’s obviously a bit big but in your size I think will be beautiful. I think the proportions of the bodice in A are a little funny and the skirt is not full enough to create shape.

    My gut is that you should keep looking. Both of these dresses have a plunge neckline and adding fabric will, in my opinion, quite drastically alter the design of the dress. I guess I would look for something with a neckline you love.

    I love love dress B! And based on your posture and smile, it looks like you felt great in it! It works so much better on your frame with the clearly defined waist. Here is me in the Philomena by Willowby; it already has the sheer panel in there. Helps keep the bodice in place, is somewhat more modest, and doesn’t change the look of the dress. I love that you’re going for a plunging V — it looks very tasteful on you. So if you do end up looking for another dress with a V (although I think B is wonderful!), don’t cover it up with anything more than a sheer panel!

    leesahmarie :  1 is far better, I think your bust is a good size for those type of dresses to keep them looking modest. I don’t think you need any extra fabric added.

    I like dress 2. I dont like the idea of dress 1 with a panel, I think it will ruin the lines of the dress. 

    Dress 2 gives you a nice shape. You could get an underskirt or petticoat if you wanted more poof as well. 

    For colours, are you pink skinned? In the first picture your skin colour blends in a bit with the dress which I dont love (I am very pink so maybe im biased lol). I love the way #2 pops on you.

    Would you be willing to try a fit and flare style? I have a near curveless body and essentially flat chest and I found most other style dresses kind of swallowed me up. The fit and flare gave me hips, hugged me in the right places, and made me feel so beautiful. The two dresses you posted ARE beautiful, but it couldn’t hurt to keep searching!
