    Looking at your previous post, I think a lot of people chose the ball gown because it showed off your waist and made it look tiny. 

    You don’t have an overly defined waist so you basically have three choices: choose a dress that defines the waist with structure, being wider at the top (cap sleeves or off-the-shoulder), ruching/draping and perhaps a belt, choose an a-line silhouette tha flows over your waist and hips and has enough structure or fullness to it that it makes your waist loook small, or choose a drop waist dress with volume or drama which takes attention away from the waist.

    I think your original dress didn’t work as it didn’t have enough structure to it to define your waist or flow over your hips. It was trying to define your waist with ruching, but the ruching wasn’t prominent enough or the fabric thick enough to do it. So it had not enough structure to really define the waist but too much to make really flow. and the fabric was too flimsy (being chiffon) to add volume, it just kind of hangs there at the skirt. I’m not saying you can’t wear chiffon at all, but I would look for something with satin under the chiffon to give it more structure on your body.

    So out of the dresses you’ve picked, I like the first and last the best. The first defines the waist  in the most obvious way, and the last one has that bit of volume and interest at the bottom to make the waist look small without having a defined waistline and without the dress being overly poofy. 

    I think #2 might also work on you. But I feel the others  may create the same problems as your first dress – the ruching doesn’t really do anything, and the fabric is just too drapey. If you could put a slip under them though, that might make a difference.

    Here are some others that I think could work on you:

    No waist definition but volume/interest at the bottom:
