  • the last green dress.  roushing (im sure thats spelled wrong) in the right places.  The waste will pull her in and show off some sexxy legs

    that's what I was gonna say, I don't see how #2 coudn't be flattering.   holds the top in place and looks like it has a tie/bow to get a hold of that middle.  I actually thought the blue dress where your sister is pictured was your choice and I was like hang on, she don't like herself in THIS here outfit?  lol.  I like all of em really, but #2 is meant to flatter.
  • I agree with PP # 3 should be the one ...but she looks really good in the blue one too..
  • Dress #1 I think will flatter her

  • I think she looks great! and i would kill for her body. but if she's that self concious then #3. the rouching will take care of her midsection. But as a plus sized person, "wrap" type dresses ALWAYS make our bodies look 1000x better. Seriously, it's like the wonder dress.

  • Ok thanks...

    @ReallyHappyGal I like the second dress as well (the green and red). The dress that she has on in the picture we actually tried to find it in ivory but can't...she is hunting for that one like crazy because she already knows what she looks like in it

    @sultryzulu yeah she loves that blue dress she has on....I am hoping she finds a place that has that dress...but if not dress #2 would be a better route!

    @thedivav do you mean the blue dress or the ivory dress?

    @footballwife77...I dont think that she is really self conscious...I think she dresses great but she worries about making sure everything on her body looks right and I dont blame her. We will just have to try the dress on and see....

    She has texted me now and says that she hates the off the shoulder dress...oh well...looks like we are shooting for dress number 2!
  • Thanks!! If I could have that blue dress in Ivory all of our issues would be solved!

  • The ivory off the shoulder dress I think they would all look great on her but is she wants to feel a bit more covered #1 I would kill for her shape
