    I disagree with your mom. I think the dress is flattering bc it makes your waist look great! I cant see the entire dress so I could be wrong.

    @ZebraPrintMe:  a) You don’t appear to be big at all!

    b) It’s hard to tell without a few body view.

    @ZebraPrintMe:  I think it looks lovely and in your size would look amazing! your opinion is the one that will matter if you love the dress, wear the dress!

    I think that dress look really lovely on you- it really gives you a defined waist!  I like the neckline too.  I don’t think you’re even close to too big.

    I think it’s stupid to dictate that any size is “too big” or “too small” to wear a certain kind of dress.  If you love it, and you feel amazing and beautiful in it, then wear it!  It’s YOUR dress, and if you wear it with confidence that will radiate.

    ETA- do you have a picture that’s more full body?

    I voted that you could find a more flattering one, not because of the poofiness but I think the top gives you a bit too much of a boob shelf. Having big boobs myself I’d be very conscious of them in that style of dress. Having said that I think it balances you well, it really defines your waist.

    No way are you too big at all! I think you look great and the dress is beautiful too. If this is the dress you love, I say go for it!

    I think you look fantastic!!

    I was a bridal size 20 and wore almost the same dress (Cinderella 205) and loved it.

    I think it’s beautiful and very flattering! And when it’s the right size, it will be even more so!

    @ZebraPrintMe:  If you have a corset back dress, you can totally go braless. I didn’t think I could (I’m a GG) but I did and it looked great! I was held in and the girls secure all night. So don’t automatically assume you need straps!

    I didn’t get strapless because I didn’t want to be pulling it up all night and feeling paranoid, but my dress was so well boned I didn’t wear a bra (32H boobs!) and I felt fine.
