I would say that either a sweetheart ballgown (which will camoflage a lack of hips and a sweetheart is very flattering to the ladies) or a very structured fit and flare with a good corset that will help create curves.

Really, the only way to truly tell is to go and try on each style and see what is most flattering.

You could always try to play to your strengths with a 1920s/1930s style bias cut dress. It’s the sort of thing that bigger, curvier girls don’t look as good in but looks amazing on a slender figure.

I’m the same size but I have a bit more chest I tried on fit & flare and mermaid dresses but I ended up with a ballgown sweetheart neckline it enhanced my figure!

I have no hips or boobs and no defined waist and I decided on a sweetheart ballgown with a ruched waist (Enzoani Davenport).  I’ve had three kids and my weight has gone all over the map, so the bias cut 1920’s style wouldn’t work for me, but if you are confident and really want to show your figure, that would be worth trying.  I didn’t like the way the mermaids fit me, even though I loved them on other people so much.  Even with a corset, I didn’t look curvy.

I’m the same size and I have a small chest and no butt.

I would try on some dresses.  Even though, they may not be right for our type of body, some may surprise you.

I had an asymmetrical A line dress.

My dress doesn’t have lace or bling but I think this silhouette could work.  I am also a size 2 in the hips and a size 0 in the boobs.  My dress has a corset and the fit creates curves where there aren’t as many.

I’m a size 0 with no boobs, but I have hips – I went with the Casablanca 1992. It has lace with crystal detailing at the waist and at the bottom and it’s in your price range. I ordered mine hem to hollow and didn’t have to do any extra alterations (only boob pads added)

At your first appointment, make a point to try on one a-line, a modified a-line, a mermaid, a trumpet, and a sheath (and a ballgown, if that’s something you’d like).

I thought I wanted one thing and I wound up with something totally different.  Keep an open mind.  Looking at pictures is fun, but having the dresses on your body can really surprise you!
