After much deliberation and soul searching I decided that my dress is not for me. It wasn’t the shape or the beading. It was the rouching. I feel like it was rouching overkill. It was having the opposite affect for me and I did not feel like it was flattering on me. So my wonderful bridal shop is letting me get a new dress because I bought the sample. So now i’m looking for a dress with subtle rouching, bigger rouching or none. So what do the ladies think? Are we over rouched, is there not enough ever, or is it okay to just not have any at all.
So here is a picture of my camo:)

My dress has a lot of rounch and i think it makes me look a lot slimmer.
I am a street size 18 and this is a dress size 20 and i need to loose 10 pounds so I can be comfortable in my dress

i think the ruching helps, but the corset is what does it… neither one of these is THE ONE, but look at the first one… my waist… and then the second, no corset and no ruching.

Personally, I did think rouching looked bad on me as well. For some reason I thought it highlighted my problem area.
The dress I wore wasn’t rouching, but more of multiple folds on top, it was more structured then rouching, which I thought was way more flattering 🙂
Here is a pic where you can kind of see the top.

Mine was not rouched at all and was a rather slim cut for a street size 12/14, bridal 16w. What was very slimming was the interior boning and the diagonal embrodiery.

Mine did not have rouching, but because of the A-line it hid my stomach completely, which is the worst part of my body 🙂 This dress is a 16W and I am wearing a corset bra underneath and it has a lace up back.

My gown has rouching, and combined with the a-line shape, I thought it was the most flattering silhouette for me.

MIne was ALL rouching, and you know what? I never thought of it as camoflage. I thought of it as flattering.

I think it’s the direction of the ruching that makes a difference in the dress. For example on me horizontal ruching across the back of the dress made me look really wide but diagonal ruching made me look much slimmer (I’m an NZ 14-16 so maybe a US 12-14?).
And the size of the ruching probably needs to be in proportion to your own size and sit nicely when the dress is on

My dress has a little ruching, but not as much as everyone else. I actually think the little bit of ruching in the bust and waist helps slim me down. I only have a picture here of the dress on the model, sorry!

I think it completely depends on the dress and the person. Ruching is just like anything else… some brides are going to love it and some will hate it. Most of the time, I like it!

I think it depends on the bride and the dress….all full figured shapes are not created equal. Ruching may be flattering to some and not to others. For me, A-line with no ruching worked best. I have no hips but I have a big butt and thighs so the ruching just looked weird and out of place on me…at least the dresses I tried. I have a dress but I have my eye on another one that has a detail I never thought I would like..pick ups…LOL. We’ll see how that goes =)

I did it!! I ordered the Sottero and Midgely Mae in Alabaster! I’m pretty excited about it. I love it and I can’t wait to see it in person.

Rouching can be dangerous!!! In the right place it cuts nches off, the wrong place it destroys your curves. I went with a-line, its very forgiving. I agree that rouching with a-line and corset it the cheapest tummy tuck ever….lol
