First off, yes I am aware my wedding is like 3 weeks away and am sorting out dress drama!
I am wearing this dress (pictured below, but basically a lace A-line/fit & face look).
And when I received it and tried it on, even though there is fabric for it to have that “flare”, it just hangs there. So I guess I need to wear a petticoat/crinoline? I thought dressilyme would have included this, but they didn’t. So I am looking at purchasing the mermaid kind, but I have a concern, I have busted my butt to lose 25 pounds for the wedding (may not sound like a lot but I am very petite so it was very hard and 25 pounds is almost 20% of my total body weight!!!) and I don’t want the look of it to add extra pounds to my waist and hip area. (Hey, I could have enjoyed more cookies, cupcakes and chips & salsa if I wanted to be 5-10 pounds heavier! LOL)
Has any one experienced this? It just looks really thick to me around the waist/hips and I am so sensitive to extra weight I am not even wearing one of those bustier things (added pudge for me instead of slimmed)
I also put a picture of the one I am looking at purchasing for reference.
