Have you ever tried on princess wedding dress, but you looked more like the ugly step sister? ? How to choose the princess wedding dress?
I was at a bridal shop trying on dresses. The sales associate brought over some wedding dresses without a train on it. One of the dresses was what I would call a fairy tale princess dress. Lots of lace, huge hooped skirt, long lace sleeves. I stepped out and OH MY GOD, I looked more like the ugly step-sister. All of that lace, my large bone frame… just made me shudder with disgust!
I then tried on a very simple dress, no lace, no hooped skirt. It was a very simple, emerald green, capped sleeved, empire waist dress. I have pretty much decided that any dress that I buy, will be made with very simple lines. So ladies. Have you ever tried on a wedding dress that looked like a fairy tale on the hanger, but made you look like the ugly step-sister? I’m looking forward to hearing your stories.

I’ve never worn dresses before and I’m terrified. I don’t want to look like a comforter or a marshmallow. I haven’t even gone into a store yet.

I’m 5 feet tall, and I looked like I was being swallowed by the dress. Terrible. I think I’ll stick to more form-fitting styles so nobody throws me a life preserver.

Haha, yes. I looked huge – princess dresses made my hips look wider than necessary. Lol. My dress does have a number of embellishments, but I am 5’10” tall, so it works. The STRUCTURE is what was missing in those dresses for me. I ended up with a somewhat A-Line dress that had interesting detailing on the bottom layers.
Every body type is different. Some need simpler lines, some need or can handle lots of detail, etc etc. 🙂

“I looked huge – princess dresses made my hips look wider than necessary.” So do i, I think i’d better try some other silhouette, even A-line is better than a princess style for me…

I’m super short, and the princess dresses that I tried on made me look like I was as wide as I was tall…it just wasn’t flattering at all…lol
