they say if you’re pear shaped you should look at a lines or fit and flare (sometimes they call them trumpet)- the nicest ones I’ve tried on so far were Allure and Watters/Wtoo. I know alot of bees are big fans of Maggie Sottero. You really need to get out there and try on a bunch of different shapes and fabrics, it’s the only way to know…

Have you tried going dress shopping yet? I didn’t know ANYTHING about dresses until I went dress shopping. And I managed to pick out a dress within 48 hours! It can be done! I think once you start trying on dresses, you will see what you like and don’t like! I tried on one ballgown and hated it, so that narrowed my search down to fitted dresses. I realized I loved lace, so that narrowed it down even more. 

Also, it helps to spend some time looking at dresses on Pinterest! That’s what I did, and I printed out ~20 pictures to take to the dress shop, and that helped the sales lady helping me to find dresses that I would like. But I didn’t know about 1 dress that I “had to have” before I went in!

What about a dropped waist ballgown? I’m not in love with my own hips either and that style was the most flattering on me.
