The title says it all…I have an athletic build, I’m technically a M/large on top (size 8’ish and had to buy a size 10 for a bridal gown) but much smaller on bottom , my waist/hips are only a size 6 (I’m 5’9) A lot of dresses I tried on with straps also did not fit me even in the correct size of 10.
I ended up getting a strapless drop waisted ballgown in a 10 but have to have the side seams taken in big time as the dress does not stay up at all lol
What style/shillouette did you go with? post a pic of you in your dress if you have one too 🙂
(ETA I am NOT bigger on top because of my girls either…I’m lucky to be a B/C cup bra wise lol)

Ooh yes! I’m very sorry I don’t have a picture, but what I did was try to play up those features that us athletic girls get. I went strapless to show off my arms and shoulders, but especially my trapezoid and defined clavicle. My dress is a natural waist a-line, so it really shows off the trim waist too. My favourite part though is the back, it dips a little and shows off my muscles. It’s Kenneth Winston 1489, for the curious.
I’m fairly petite, 5’4. My measurements are 31″ bust, 25″ waist, 36″ hip. I’m athletic looking, but not body builder looking. I’m a former wrestler, now just runner/gym rat.
i hope your alterations go great! Once that gown is sized to your figure, the silhouette should be beautiful.
