Dresses for hourglass figure

Can any of you wise ladies out there point me in the direction of a dress for a wedding I have to attend. Im hourglass, admitedly with a bit of a tummy at the minute (which will go soon with constant dieting! ahem!!).

Im 5ft 6, probably about a size 12-14. The wedding is in July and I really want to have something nice to wear. I look at the gorgeous kim kardashian and think her clothes are fab if a little ott for a wedding but you get the general jist of what im after. Any advice?

Sounds like you want Karen Millen. Cut for hourglasses (warning: they come up small) and Kardashian like.

Reiss is also worth a look for their fit and flare or fitted dresses. (ignore the tunicky style ones).

So Couture is also worth a look - slightly retro feeling, v glam dresses, especially the Bombshell dress. Perfect for hourglass.

Ooh I like it (though I'd need serious Spanx to wear with it!)

NOT Karen Millen (boak).

L K Bennett or any Italian designer for my money.

LK Bennett Davina will look gorgeous on you.
