No I haven’t, sorry. But that being said, it’s gorgeous! And I am very much a “pear” bride. I have ordered a tea length dress that’s pinched at the waist and then flares out and I can honestly say that all the dresses that suited my shape had a poofy bottom! It hid my hips, tum and bum rather than made them stand out.

I hope you get sorted! 🙂 x

Please dont think im being being rude but u must try a dress on im size 10 uk with massive long hips and some styles didnt look right on me and enhanced all the wrong bits. whatever size wether the person is an 6- 24 I think shud always try it on eveb daft things like the why a dress sits on your boobs. I tried on and I got big boobs but if I bent over u cud see down the dress.

@MrsEmeraldLover:  I just want to chime in on what a gorgeous dress that is!  Wow!

@MrsEmeraldLover:   Hmm. Did the local shop give you the opportunity to even attempt to try it on? The dress I was in love with was only available in a size 8 in the store. I was very doubtful about trying it on in such a small size, but just having it on (given, unzipped and not properly fitting), I was happy with the “impression”.   (I’m a street 18 and the actual dress ordered was a 22).  While a bit odd, they assured me they try on in the 8 was common, and I felt the general idea was enough to make my mind up with.  (I bought it and loved it).

So, I’d say if you can at least try on the smaller size to get a basic feel, go ahead.

Also, after reading your follow up post, it sounds like you have an opportunity to see another plus sized person’s pics, AND speak to the company directly at the trunk show.  I’m guessing you’ll get enough feedback to help make up your mind!   Please check back with us on this thread; I love seeing the outcomes of “would this work on me” threads!

@MrsEmeraldLover:  If you are a pear shape, that style should be very flattering on you. The ruffles will hide your bottom/hips and the sash will emphasize your waist. Since your waist/bust is your smaller area, it is better to have that exposed and fitted, and have the poufy a-line skirt.

 

The sweetheart top should also help balance out your bust/shoulders with your hips.

 

If I were you, I would try to find a simllar style in your size to try on (I realize that is hard to do when you are larger than the sample size, but you could probably find one at a davids bridal, perhaps?)

 

Also, I am in LOVE with that dress, oh my! If I was not already married, I would want to try it on!

I tried on a similar ruffly dress, and I am a street size 14. I will see if I can find a picture!

This dress was an Impression Bridal dress. I think it was the most flattering dress I tried on. I seriously looked so much thinner in it than any other dress.

@MrsEmeraldLover:  No, I liked it but I wanted a true ball-gown and that dress was more of an A-line. I ended up with a Reem Acra tulle dress.

 

Which, actually, I don’t think is as flattering as the A-line. I just wanted a huge poofy dress.

@MrsEmeraldLover:  I have really narrow hips, unfortunately. I wish I had more hips! I kind of look like an upside down triangle! I just knew I wanted a huge princess dress!
