How does a petite goblet body type woman look like wearing a dress?

When I was looking for a nice, flattering dress, I got really frustrated. That's because I have a large breast, undefined waist and small hips. Finding out what body type I am helped a lot: goblet body type, based on Trinny and Susannah's grouping method.

After finding out that I was a goblet body type, I looked at multiple Pinterest boards and googled "Goblet body dress" but most women that appeared on the websites seemed to have smaller breasts than me, and were mostly taller than me.

However, after several trial-and-error (e.g. the Issa wrap dress), I seemed to have found a flattering silhouette for me, and I would like to share this.

(Dresses sold in Japan are somewhat different from those sold in US, UK, etc. But I thought it could be a good guide for someone out there)

The dresses


Because dresses appear differently when seen on photo and when seen by a live human being, I have included remarks below each photo (my personal opinion).
Some comments would probably contradict your opinion, but these are my honest opinions at the time.


Dress No.1


Extremely unflattering dress for large breasted women
This picture was taken as a bad example.
The dress flows off my (rather large) breasts, and makes me look like a pregnant woman.
Clearly, large breasted women should not wear a shapeless dress.
Maternity-like appearance: 10/10
Modesty: 10/10


Dress No.2


Nice dress for large breasted woman
I didn't really like the color; It didn't make me look healthy (I have a "warm" skin tone, but the dress seemed to have a "cool" tone).
But I thought the tube-top style actually made my breast less noticeable, and the sparkly motif at the bottom of the dress distracted my eyes off the upper half of my body.

The waist belt-ish part is sewn in, so it was not removable. This horizontally lying material made my waist look fatter (I know, it's not especially thin!), and didn't make me look stylish.

MY SCORES
Maternity-like appearance: 0/10
Self-esteem: 7/10
Modesty: 9/10

For my body type?: Probably not. Shouldn't settle with this and keep looking.


Dress No.3

This dress had an empire waisteline. Because the skirt kind of stuck out, it made me look like I was 5 months pregnant. I wasn't really comfortable with the colour red. It was too strong, and I felt very conscious about my body.

MY SCORES
Maternity-like appearance: 6/10
Self-esteem: 4/10
Modesty: 7/10

For my body type?: Probably yes. I think I would wear this if I can't find anything better, but would feel uncomfortable at the occasion.


Dress No.4


Good dress for petite size, large breasted woman with no waistGood for slightly short, goblet body type Asian woman
I really liked the shape of the dress. This dress made me look taller than I actually am, and didn't make me look like a pregnant woman.

There is a strange trend in Japan right now. Women are supposed to hide their upper arm to look more modest, and it's embarassing for women past their late 20s to wear anything in pink shade. So the store clerk gave me this short bolero to wear, and then brought me "a dress with better colour for my age."

But I actually liked the pinkish-neutral coloured dress better. Made me feel happier and more confident.

I like how the dress is tailored in a diagonal direction. It makes my undefined waist look like an actual curve.

MY SCORES
Maternity-like appearance: 0/10
Self-esteem: 10/10
Modesty: 10/10

For my body type?: Yes. I would definitely wear this!


Dress No.5

I guess this is very close to a cocoon shaped dress. It is a two-piece dress, and the sleaves can be removed. The rose shaped attachment on the sleave and the layers on the skirt distract the eyes away from my breasts, which is great for modesty.

In a different colour.

I didn't really think I looked like a pregnant woman when I looked through the mirror, but looking at the photos now, I think I look a bit pregnant.

MY SCORES (at the time)
Maternity-like appearance: 4/10
Self-esteem: 7/10
Modesty: 4/10

For my body type?: Mmm. At the time, I thought yes! But when I look at it now, it's a no.


Dress No.6

This was another favourite dress I tried. I liked the rose-like feature at the bottom of the dress, and I felt my skin looked better in this dress. My undefined waist actually looked like a "proper" waist, and my breast looked large enough but not too big.

For my body type?: Yes. I would definitely wear this!

You look different in photos and in real life


When I purchase clothes online, some clothes look like they have a completely different colour. Before, I sent back/re-sold those items because I didn't how I look, but for special occasion dresses, I usually try them on and take a picture.

Because of Facebook and other SNSs, it's sometimes better to wear dresses that look flattering in pictures, because more people would see me through the screen than in person. However, if I wanted to impress someone AT the occasion (not AFTER the occasion), I usually trust my eyes (not my camera) and say "NO" to dresses that has an unflattering shade.
