@divinav:  Is this the only dress you have tried on or that you’re interested in? I like the bodice but I think the dress swallows you up for the most part. The back looks good in the last picture but I’m not too fond of the shoulder strap. You look like you have a petite figure. I had the same problem with dresses swallowing me up. Have you tried a fit and flare or lower dropped waist gown?

@divinav:  You’re welcome. You still look pretty small to me. How tall are you? By petite I meant under 5’4″. I had to try about 20 to 30 dresses on before I found “the one”. A lot of the mermaid dresses made me look shorter. I’m only 5’3″. I think the fit and flare, trumpet, or a different cut ball gown would look good.

I like the bodine.  I think it’s very flattering on you and shows off your curves beautifully.  But I really dislike the skirt.  It looks like an afterthought.  Like a sheet tied around your hips.  Sorry.

I think you’re heading in the right direction with the general style of the drop waist.  I would just look for a dress with a different skirt.

To echo a PP’s comments, I agree that the fitted bodice is excellent, but not the skirt, which does seem like an afterthought.  Hope this gives you some ideas to take to your next appointment.  If I’ve learned anything from the Bee, it’s that you will eventually find a dress that has ALL of the elements you love if you keep looking long enough.  Good luck, and let us know what you find!

It is a little bit much on the bottom and a little plain overall…try something with lace or sparkle….

I agree with PP’s, I love the bodice, but I’m not crazy about the skirt or the strap.

I’m on a fence! I think it looks nice, but I’m a little underwhelmed. It might be the skirt, like the others are saying.  It certainly is pretty though!

I don’t like the strap, it looks too… substantial? Not crazy about the dress over all, I say keep looking!
