    I think the fit and flare looks stunning on you! It’s very complimentary. All of your dresses are gorgeous, you have excellent taste.

    The color, shape, and detail of the ballgown/ a line look amazing on you, amke you look the slimmest, and its so unique.  The other options seem more modern/ trendy right now

    @ekmd16:  I think the Enzoani Ghislaine is GORGEOUS! You don’t look bad in any of the dresses you posted. I like the A-line or the fit-and-flare on you best.

    Option 4 is Casablanca 1995 (only know because I tried that one on myself today!)

    Since you have curves, I definitely think the ballgown/A-line will be really flattering on you.  A-lines are classic and beautiful, I think 🙂  That dress is gorgeous on you and I love how both the skirt and the bodice are beautiful and interesting to look at in terms of detail.

    I like the fit and flare but it definetely needs a belt with it.  I would go with a fit and flare or a line.

    @ekmd16:  Those are beautiful dresses but I really think since you are petite you should on a drop waist dress. It’s between a mermaid and a ball gown. It also flares out much higher than the mermaid dress and is fitted to about the hips. I am petite as well, and the mermaid gowns looked the same on me. I ended up going with a drop waist gown.

    I’d go with the ballgown or fit and flare. I don’t like the mermaid style on you. I think the ballgown is gorgeous on you though!

    That first dress looks amazing on you!  All of the dresses are very pretty, but I think that first one looks gorgeous on you.

    I think they all look great on you! But my absolute favorite is Option 3! But whichever one you go with will fit you 🙂

    I really like the second one without the straps. I think that since you are shorter the mermaid/trumpet styles are falling a bit too low. See if the alterations dept. has a hollow to hem – I believe they can alter it according to your height. Love the last one, too!

    I definitely like the first style on you and agree that the flare probably needs to be lifted to better suit your proportions 🙂
