    My first military ball

    Advertisements
    Hey guys!
    In July, I am attending my first military ball. I am so nervous and stressed out about buying the perfect dress that I am coming to you.
    For past 4 weeks, I have not been doing anything but looking at dresses. i researched lots of blogs and advice and I am getting even more nervous.
    Anyways, my boyfriend and I want to match and I found some lots of dresses I liked and after several weeks, I am down to 6 dresses to choose from
    I would like to hear your opinions! Just to give you an idea, I am 5'3, size 16, curvy and busty. The dress color will be dark navy.

    I like the first and fourth ones best.

    Have you looked at Rent the Runway? I'm always nervous when I buy dresses online in case the sizes are wrong or it doesn't fit quite right, but RTR offers a backup size which I love. Plus, you can see reviews of people wearing the dress so you can see what it looks like on someone with a similar body type.

    I like #1 and 3 looks like it would be very flattering. If you're busty, you might want to stay away from strapless.

    I would stay away from the strapless two. My pick would be number 1. Very classy!

    Yes, the first one is my favorite as well. Chiffon feels like a romantic material to me...is that weird? But, I second Kittens, rent the runway could be a great option as well.

    I would love to rent!!! We are in Germany though and I have visited lots of places and all I saw were ugly dresses at very high rate. That is why I need to order online. I am fine with having it altered once it arrives.
    I love number 1 as well...I eliminated all the strapless ones. Did anyone liked number 2?
    and BTW - I totally love chiffon too!

    Number 2 feels strapless to me. I know it isn't but it gives off the strapless look. I still think number 1 is the clear winner for me

    I liked #3

    I did want to mention that a good majority of the girls will be in dresses that match the uniform. You don't have to be matchy-matchy unless you really want to.
