I looked at dresses for about 3 months before finally buying . My father and grandmother died 2 yrs ago, and i wanted to CELEBRATE LIFE, LOVE and HAPPINESS at last! This to me meant findig something sparkling, fun, feminine and a bit sexy. I was so exited!
The experience was however tiering and frustrating for several reasons
1. Dresses were manly very simple a-line or sheeth, the most polpular kinds in my country .
2 NOTHING was even CLOSE to my size.Luxury problem perhaps but it made me feel shapeless, drawn, bony and definitely not womanly or sexy.
I finally found the Ella Marie from maggie sottero in as shop with a really nice assistance A beautiful sparkeling dress with lace overlaid silk and lots of tull.
I was happy but a bit weary as this dress was also too big and had to be taken in as I bought it off the rack to save money.
When I came from the tailors I was shoked, The dress is still pretty, but I looked so unattactive and shapeless- I had not realized that the weight I had lost from the last 2 difficult years was so visible and so severe.
I really cant afford to buy a new dress as me and my FI are paying for it ourselves.
what can i do to appear more feminine? ( add a silk sash?) other?

@Aci2: That dress is very feminine and has a lot going on! I don’t think you need to do anything more.
Where you might see that it shows your skinny because of weight lost from upsetting times, I think you look great! It might almost be too much if someone wore that with a curvy body…

Girl, you look amazing. You may not have great big dramatic curves, but you do have a very sleek, elegant waistline and the dress shows it perfectly. Especially if you’re worried about having shape, that skirt is just perfect for you. Keep the dress. It’s jaw-dropping!

That dress is amazing and looks gorgeous on you! I wish all of us women could not be so hard on ourselves when it comes to mermaid dresses – people who are skinny worry they don’t fill it out right, and people who are curvy think it calls too much attention to their curves! It really does look great.

Maybe a petticoat? I think it looks great! But more oomph at the bottom may make you feel like you have more defined curves.

I don’t think you look shapeless at all! You look great. I would probably wear a statement necklace with it though, depending on how you’re wearing your hair.

you look absolutely stunning. i cannot understand why you think you look shapeless? you have an amazing figure and the dress is lovely on you…
i wouldn’t add anything else to the dress as it is already busy on the top… you don’t want to attract too much attention to too many different things.
good choice in dress it’s AMAZING.

I would add a sash to it, just to help accentuate your figure.
