Can I be honest?

All of these look fine, but yeah… you haven’t found your dress yet.  I’d like to make a suggestion:  go SEXY.  Like, fitted, sweetheart neckline, second skin type fitted dress. All of these are pretty conservative, very pretty… but you can rock something a little edgier.  I think you might like what you see 🙂

I agree that none of this scream “wow!” to me.  You seem to lean toward dresses that have thick details in the waist and if I’m honest, I don’t think it does much for you.  I would experiement with some different styles.  Even if you don’t like the more fitted look, it will give you a better idea of what you can pull off and help you narrow your choices down a little more.  Out of all the pictures you posted, I like the first dress best.

Honestly?  You have an amazing figure, but none of these dresses are “it.”  I would say try something that is more fitted.  Try a variety of sillhouettes.  Good luck in your search!

I agree with the posters above! You would be stunning in something more fitted.

Out of the dresses posted, I like the one with the wideset straps and square neck (lace dress, #2) the best. The dress itself is too big on you but that type of strap accentuates your collarbones really nicely.

@Day_In_The_Life:  I tried on that first dress and almost bought it ’cause it was only $150.  Lol!  But it wasn’t my dress.  It is pretty, though, and I think it’s my favorite of the ones you’ve tried on.  But I agree with the others – you haven’t found your dress yet.  Definitely try on a few fit and flares.  I have a similar body type as you, and the fit and flare was very flattering.  That’s actually what I ended up getting.  And I had to go up one whole dress size to accommodate my hips and thighs.

I agree with the PPs. I think these dresses are all in your “comfort zone,” and you should really try some different styles. I think the fit and flare would look amazing on your figure! Keep looking. 🙂

You will know when you find it especially from the pictures you take. You will have a smile from ear to ear.  I don’t see that smile in any of the pictures.

Gook luck with it.

I love the top of the first dress… but I don’t think you’ve found the one yet. I agree with pp’s I would step a little out of your comfort zone style wise. Good luck with your dress hunt!

I like this last one better than the rest, because it accentuates your tiny waist-and balances your figure, very hourglass.

All of the dresses are not flattering with the exception of the last one you just posted a day ago. The last dress looks like it is better quality then the ones pictured in the OP.

i think you’re not really feeling any of these because they’re stock sizes and definately need to be adjusted quite a bit to fit your bod, and hemmed etc

when i went dress shopping i made sure i had makeup on and heels and that my hair was a tiny bit styled (blow dryed etc) so i could have a better idea of how it would look on me, when i come in casual and try on fancy things i can’t tell between a red carpet worthy frock and a potoato sack on myself lol

i really love the second one on you
