I actually think #1 and 3 look great! You def dont look like a sausage ๐Ÿ˜€ No recommendations for places in  your area, sorry. Did you try on any with a sash to excentuate your waist? That made a huge difference in my dress!!

I love the third dress it really flatters you ๐Ÿ™‚ I think you look great! We all pick on our “so called flaws” way more than anyone else ever would. You will be a beautiful bride no matter what dress you pick.

I actually think dress 3 looks really good and flattering!

My suggestion though would be to try on chiffon dresses. They are VERY forgiving and if you get an empire waist it will make you look taller. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can try and find examples but I’m not quick like some of the other bees! haha.

Also, try a different style if you’re unhappy with the more a-line or ballgown-y looks.

This one I have never seen anyone look bad in. It was my 2nd choice, but didn’t really fit my venue. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s chiffon.

My advice… fit and flare gowns can actually be super flattering on us plus size ladies… Try atleast a couple of those on and see if it makes a difference

I think the first and third ones look pretty good on you, especially #3. With your shape, I would suggest something that defines your waist, either ruching or like PP posted, maybe a sash on a natural waist dress that has an a-line skirt. To keep your chest/torso from looking too broad, stick to a sweetheart neckline. Sleeves tend to make people look heavier (sometimes) and a straight neckline will make you look wider and more top heavy. Be careful with an empire waist if you have any belly (I’m a size 12 with a pooch and empire waists make me look like I’m 4-5 months along.) Also, since you say you look ‘short,’ don’t go too full on the skirt or it will shrink you more! HTH!
