Help with dressing.

I need some sort of flattering dress that's formal, yet slightly suggestive.
The problem is, I have no idea what kind of dress would work best with my body type. Anyone have any advice?

What is your body type?

Hourglass.

Is it an after 5 type activity? Hourglass figures always look very well in wrap dress or wrap"like" dresses. OR, something that gathers at the waist in some fashion. Also, typically a bias cut type skirt or dress is always flattering.

By after 5, I'm assuming you mean evening activity. If so, yes it is. One type I heard about is a floor-length sheath dress with a side slit. Would that work, too?

Go shopping with a friend who will be truthful about how something looks on you. Try on different styles and find the one that suits you best, and is one you would be comfortable wearing for a formal dinner. Have a great time and let us know what you find for a dress.

I already said. It's hourglass.

Definately a silky light material that will accent your curves; low cut for sure. Accent it with a pair of FMP's and a black velvet collar and you will be very, very hot. I love to show off my figure and this combo gets results.

Thanks, everyone. If you have any more ideas, I'll try them.
