I think you look beautiful! I know we are our own worst critic, but I honestly don’t see any of the things that you are talking about. I think you have a beautiful figure for the dress!

@Lollybags:  I love that dress!  I think if you put on the right under garments on your problems will go away!  All I can see is a panty-line I think.

BTW the dress makes your upper body look awesome and toned!

Im not really sure that you have any saddle bags.  I’m pretty sure they are called hips.

The dress is lovely.  Spanx will likely help to just smooth everything underneath since the material is so silky, but you definitely don’t need them to hide anything!  You look beautiful.

@Lollybags:  I don’t think you have sadlebags and you have great figure for that dress! Spanx will definitely smooth everything out and I would honestly recomend them since your dress fabric is so gorgeously clingy. Think visable panty line type smoothing, not “you need to loose 10lbs” smoothing (because you totally don’t!)

I also don’t think it helps that you don’t have the right undergarments on. Panties don’t do much for fitting wedding dresses, but I don’t see these saddle bags you’re talking about.

You look WONDERFUL!!! And yes, spanx will work wonders to smooth everything out (which you only need bc the fabric is clingy).

I’m just not a fan of the clinginess of the material. I definitely think a slip would help. Not sure if spanx makes the right kind, but you’d want one that disappears under the dress and gives that extra thickness of fabric to make the effect more flowy around your thighs.

As for looking fatter in photos than the mirror, that’s because we all look fatter in photos than real life (mirror is more accurate). Photos try to make a 3D image into a 2D image, the result, the well-known saying: “The camera adds 10 lbs.” It really does.

@Lollybags:  I will honestly tell you that you don’t need to worry about shapewear.  If you feel like it will make you feel more confident (and confidence is true beauty), go for it.  I really think you look absolutely stunning!!!!!!!!!
