Dress 1 works with your curves and gives a slimming look. That one’s my favorite.

Dresses #1 and #2 really flatter you.  You couldn’t go wrong with either one.

my vote is to keep looking. Avoid those heavy fabrics, try something in lighter fabric. While I think that #1 looks good on you, I also think that style is dated.

I normally am a fan of ball gowns or a-lines as these others are, but these are not working for you entirely although #3 does nice things for your waist.

Personally I think dress 1 is the most flattering on your curvy figure! You have got a beautiful body and it really highlights it! The other dresses are beautiful but they make you look frumpy instead of vuluptious, which you are!

Melissa112:  The first dress is definitely best for your shape. I don’t like any of the others very much.

You are rather short-waisted (like me!) and hence dresses that flare out at the natural waist tend to swallow you up. Because there isn’t much space between the bust-line and when the dress starts so flare out, the dress isn’t able to show off your waist as well.

I think you should look at drop-waist ballgowns and drop-waist a-lines, and also dresses that have an asymmetrical waistline (ballgowns, a-lines, fit and flares) as these help elongate your torso.

You could also look at princess-line dresses – these are a-line type dresses that don’t have a clearly defined waist (i.e. they don’t have a belt, gathers or pleating at the waistline) but that skim over the waistline. These will also help elongate your waist.

I can’t post pictures as I’m at work but I will later on.

Melissa112:  Id have to go with 1. But to be completely honest, I dont think any of them are that great. Not trying to be rude, I just think you could do much better. Maybe you could try a different style of dress?
