Thanks for your input and photos, everyone. You all look gorgeous in your dresses. It’s sort of addictive looking at it all! 😀 Whoever said that hips are a bad thing, clearly needs to visit this thread..haha.
@jennyDtobe:Impression had a ton of dresses in this shape, but I focused my entire time on the lace/ruched ones to try and narrow in on what I love. Your dress so elegant and “light”/airy looking, if that makes sense. Thanks for the reccomendation to go there!
Holy cow, you look stunning. I don’t think I’d be able to pull that dress off, but it’s definitely “your” dress! *Jealous!*

@MIBEETOWED:Love your dress and your tattoos! 😉 What fabric is the top made of? I’m considering going that shade of white but not many sample dresses come in it (mostly ivory) so it’s hard to visualize this style in that color.

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!

@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.
