here’s a picture of the dress i want for my bridesmaids, the other a picture of one of my sisters (although you can’t really see how big her hips really are-she’s had two kids- in this picture). i’ve read that halter and slight drop waist dresses are a bad idea for pear shaped women (which most of my bridesmaids are), but i love the style of this dress. any suggestions???

@kbear04: Yeah… I am pear shaped and I dont think that would do anything to flatter my figure… I think that you should look at other styles!

I think it would be hard for most people to look decent in that dress. I would go with something more A line or looser on the hips.

drop waists DEFINITELY accentuate hips, so if you’re worried about that I’d move to a new style. I’m sure there are many styles with empire or natural waists that are very similar to this, and you could add a similar belt as well, just up higher.
There are so many options out there!

I am a hippy girl and would never go near that dress it would be very unflattering.

This is a cute dress but probably not for someone with hips. However, I don’t really see hips on your sister because to me she looks small. You should have them try it on at a salon to see if it would work on them.
