Summary: I'm wearing a strapless dress, they don't look good on me. How can I minimize the effect?
I'm going to my school's semi formal dance, and I'm a little nervous about my dress choice. I love the dress- I've been eyeing it for months, and it just went on sale so it seemed like fate! It's got this photo print of a galaxy on the skirt and it's just gorgeous.
The only problem, is I don't think it'll look good on me. It's strapless and slightly short-waisted. I'm an hourglass with a muscular build and no boobs, so strapless dresses make me look like a gorilla-ish boy and empire waists do me no favors either. I really don't want another dress, so I have come to terms with the fact that this one won't really set me off. But is there anything I can do to make it a little better?
I haven't picked a hairstyle, and my hair is long thick and brown. I also don't have a strapless bra yet, so I'm thinking about going braless. (re: no boobs.) No bra would just flatten me right out, which surprisingly, sometimes works for me.
PS: I'm going to try to use the dance as an excuse to wow the guy I have a crush on. I really want him to ask me to dance, and if he doesn't, I might! ;) So I really would love to not have to worry about how I look.

Hmmm. . . first off, you should always dress for your body and not pick a dress because it looks good on the rack. Secondly, I'm confused as to how you could be a hourglass figure if you have no boobs. An hourglass is curvy, full boobs and curvy hips and butt with a tight waist. Perhaps you're a pear?0
