    LOVE #1, 2, & 7.  What are your colors??  Any of these dresses would most likely flatter every body type!

    I think any one would work BUT #5. I think the crossing fabric over the torso wouldn’t be very flattering.

    #3 is pretty but I think it would be uncomfortable for busty girls.

    I like #7 best.

    As a plus sized woman myself, I’d be most comfortable in the last one.

    I honestly don’t think that fabric or silhouette will be very flattering for busty girls or any that have larger hips except for maybe the last one. There doesn’t appear to be much softness or flowiness. I’m both busty and hippy and none of those styles would look good on me. Sorry. I know how frustrating it can be.

    I chose 7 because it looks like it has the best support for a larger bust. Also, because I prefer modest clothing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I agree with smyley–I’m both busty and hippy and I wouldn’t be able to wear any of the above styles. Also with your color palette, be cautious as the lighter more spring like colors tend not to help in making you look slimmer. Have you checked out Alfred Angelo? Their dresses come in a wide variety of colors, and go up to size 28-30 I believe? My Maid/Matron of Honor falls into the busty/hippy category…our girls got their dresses from Alfred Angelo and she looked amazing in her gown! Good luck =)

    I like #4, it has room to wear a bra and I think the ruffles are very flattering. I also like #7 for the same reason, but I like the wrap action of #4. I am a large girl bust-wise and I would feel most comfortable in one of the ones with the straps.

    I am not a fan of #3 because I think the one shoulder look is nice on one person, but in a group might just look like too much. Same issue with #1.

    Love the eggplant color, very chic
