This post is dedicated to my new blog-friend Angie who has a wedding in 64 (or something) days and does not have a dress. She mentioned how difficult it is to find something for us busty pear shaped gals, and I agree. Although I am less busty and more pear shaped than I used to be, I still sympathize.
So here is my current round up of long alterna-dresses for "ir"regular shaped people:
I love this maxi dress from NY & Co:
Then I headed over to my good friend Nordstrom.com:
this dress and the fuller skirt would be good for a pear-shape and...still no bra. Damn.
But what have we here? The same dress, with a halter top, and a cheaper price tag?
truly bra-friendly dress is for the woman who does not fear the spanx. And for a summer wedding, Spanx are a layer of hot & sweaty.
some more dubious bra-friendly options that may not be for the pear shaped -
And then there are the "plus size" (or "average" if you will) options:
Leaving Nordstrom, there are a few more options. This dress from Newport News has built in shapewear. I'm not sure how I feel about that.
a lovely summer sundress?
