    The cardigan still shows your nice shape, but the blazer completely hides it. A very skinny belt over the cardigan around your natural waist would look especially cute, I think.

    Cardigan, it comes in and shows your figure.

    The blazer is a little unflattering and doesnt do you justice.

    I love the cardigan with the dress. It shows off your shape much better than the blazer — the blazer’s lapels just aren’t as flattering in showing off the dress!

    @Happily_Married:  The cardigan!

    The long collar of the blazer hides your figure and draws the eye downward, which makes you look wider/heavier (no bueno). 

    The crewneck cardigan is nicely tailored to accentuate your curves since it draws the eye inward, instead of downward. However, the cardigan is a bit too long to pair with a dress, because it hits mid-to-lower hip. At the recommendation of my SA, I learned that Banana Republic’s petite cardigans are better paired with dresses since they hit at the top of my waist, and it really does make a big difference.

    My suggestion would be to try to the petite version of the cardigan (go one size up, though) to see if if hits higher.

    Both are nice, and look lovely. Though the cardigan is better, I’d only go with the blazer if it’s warmer and you’re likely to be cold/less warm and you’re likely to be hot. =)
