I am feeling very insecure about how I look in my wedding dress. My dress is a size 20 and I LOVE the way I look from the front and the back. I Love my curves and I embrace them. I am having a problem with how I look from the side 🙁 I feel like a giant marshmallow when I see my side view…… The pics are when I bought my dress so I did not have any undergarments on. I have since purchased Spanx but I don’t feel like they do much for my side problem. Any suggestions on how to look not pregnant?
Thank you in advance my beautiful plus size brides 🙂

I don’t have any tips, but I promise you, on your big day, you won’t even think about it. Youll be having so much fun with everyone, the day will fly by.
be sure you know how you want to stand for your formal shots, and try to stick to it if you can. Let your photographer know beforehand that you dont want full length side shots. You will have so many shots to choose from it will be okay. Over half of my candid shots had me all bustin out, but I looked happy! Don’t squeeze into too tight spanx to try to make it better… It’s more important that you have a good time.

You look beautiful, & your dress is very flattering! Don’t worry about side views (easier said than done, I know). First off, it looks fine from the side. Agree with poster above, don’t try to squeeze into anything, just make sure you’re comfortable in the gown & you’ll look great! Good posture goes a long way too. Lastly, most of your pics are going to be front views, and wedding photogs are literally trained to photograph bride’s at their most flattering angles : ) So no more stress, you do not look like a marshmallow! lol

Considering my belly/hips/butt are my least favorite jiggle let me say that your side view is FINE – giant marshmallow is me in my ballgown with a hoop skirt petticoat. But we’ll rock it, right?

Another Bee posted about a product called Rago. In fact if you search for Rago on here you can see her post. It is an amazing product!! I bought it, and it did wonders for my stomach!!! It’s kind of expensive but it’s totally worth it! You should check it out!
