I adore pretty feminine dresses, however, I often feel that they engulf and overpower me.  Schatz doesn’t particularly like me in fluffy/flared skirts and dresses as he thinks they make women look larger than they are.  Now being a bit of a pear, they’re supposed to do well on my figure, yet, I don’t think they look grand.

I just received the images below in my morning fix from All 4 women and although there were a few ‘flared’ pear-shaped appropriate dresses, these spoke louder to my winter weary soul.

This would be so lovely for an afternoon wedding, or a special dinner out.

    Lovely dresses. I love dresses too…but I definitely have to choose carefully with my pear shape.

    Its funny that you are ready for summer; here in the US we are ready for fall…our summer of extensive 100 degree days is wearying!

    I LOVE dresses and I constantly wear them in summer. I don’t feel comfortable in shoulderless dresses…so the black and white one is right up my alley.

    Love the floral one but none of the rest.
