I live overseas and can’t try on wedding dresses until I’m back in the States in July. Our wedding is in October-eek. It doesn’t give much time I know, so I am trying to get as much of a head start now as I can.
I just have no concept of what would work with my body type. I am 5’2, 125 lbs. 32B up top, 36ish around my hips. Most of my weight is in my rear and thighs.
What dresses and styles do you recommend? Anyone who is a similar shape/size have pics of themselves in their dresses they’d like to share? I would lOVE to see “real life” photos!
I would love a dress that is NOT strapless and is made of lace, but my first priority is something that works with my body type
Thank you so much everyone!

@indiblue: Although this was long ago, it seems that I have seen some similar type lace dresses these days. I am 4′ 10″, was about 110 lbs, proportional in upper and lower body-so short torso, short legs and 32A, and large hips/butt/thighs. The upside was 2 very short labor and deliveries. lol. 🙂 Something like this? David’s Bridal Collection Cap Sleeve Lace Over Satin Gown with Illusion Back Style T3299, Also available in Petite sizes 0P-16P, Style 7T3299$799 (special order only)
