Price not important, most important how it makes me feel. I'm very curvy so strapless is not an option. And, I don't want it to look like a wedding dress. I've looked everywhere bu haven't found it. Can you help? Please???? Thanks in advance, C"
Congrats on the big 4-0, Cary! We've picked out seven amazing dresses for you that'll make you look and feel like a million bucks on NYE. Don't forget - as with all formal dresses, it's best to order a size or two above your normal dress size so you can have it tailored, and the right shapewear will make these dresses feel and look even better. Have a blast!
