    E!  I might be biased, but I tried the same dress on.  The only reason I didn’t get it was because of the strap.

    @AllyCRN:  A and D are the best at complete and total tummy hiding IMO. I voted D because I think it looks the best on you. Very pretty dress.

    @AllyCRN:  I love C!  I think it makes you appear longer and leaner – it’s very flattering.

    @AllyCRN:   I like A and E the best.   The slim line of A and E are flattering and show off your waist well.  However I think you can do better on the bust/neckline area.  For some reason neither A nor E seem to sit well on you in those areas – to my eye, anyway.  Perhaps they were off on the size – and obviously not altered to fit….

    Anyway I look forward very much to seeing higher end dresses on you!  Best of luck with your shopping – you are approaching it well!  What designers do you like?

    @AllyCRN:  My eye balls told me so, lol. I think I like the higher waist line on you. It makes your legs seem longer.

    @AllyCRN:  I like the top half of C and the bottom of D. I like the A-line silhouette on you the most, and the v-neck is best for making you look taller and getting them to look at your boobs and face instead of your tummy.

    I think you could still wear a fit and flare/trumpet/modified a-line as well, with ruching, but it’s all about finding the dress with the right amont of shape and structure. Quite often I find DB dresses just aren’t quite right – I think it’s because they have less boning than others.

    The basic shape of every dress except D is the same, just with a few details changed. I am a fan of D, with its slightly more natural waistline and slightly more a-line shape. I’d be interested in seeing you in some different silhouettes, unless you have already decided on the shape of the dress you want.

    A or B were my favorites. The only one I did not like on you was the v neck strap dress, not a good fit.
