Major hips here… I wanted to hide them a bit so I went with this:

I think #6 is a no-brainer. It’s incredibly unique and flattering.

I LOVE 3!!! You look stunning!! By far my favourite!!!


2 is lovely also, but I personally think less is more…the bottom of 2 is a little busy.

Same problem here – size 2 up top in bridal sizing and 6 on the bottom. I went with mermaid as well…

All of you ladies look so beautiful in your fitted dresses!!

This thread makes me so happy and I am so glad I stumbled across it!  I too have hips, and I went out searching for a poofy A-line or ball gown and scoffed at the consultant when she suggested a fitted dress.  After 3 stores, I finally conceded and put a fitted dress on. I was shocked at how much I liked my figure in it and then I spent a month being super confused because I couldn’t commit to a fitted dress when it was so different than I expected.  After taking a month off, I went back and tried on the dress again and knew immediately without a doubt that it was the dress.  

Anyway, this is the ball gown type dress that I thought I wanted at first…I actually bought this one at first…

And then I realized that something was missing…until I found the one…

Luckily I was able to resell the first dress and now I’ve only got one dress, and it’s the right one!Smile

@hardtoconcentrate: That first dress is MY dress! You’re the first person I’ve seen wearing it!!

Anyway: I don’t have hips, so I’m not much help here. OP, I think that ballgown is INSANE on you, but those other dresses showcase your curves. I guess you have to decide if you want to show off your hips or show off your shoulders (which I think a ballgown does). You look gorgeous in all of them, so I’m no help.
