The consultant told me to shimmy up the dress past my bum and then sit down, although that may cause stupid wrinkles and mess up the photos a bit, especially mine because I’m having a catholic full mass and there is lots of sitting..

Commenting to follow!! I am hoping some bees have some advice as I bought a fit and flare dress and had the same problem when trying to sit.

Clutterqueen: When I tried on a mermaid, that was exactly how I felt and had to do exactly the same awkward maneouvre to sit down, plus I didn’t like that my thighs being restricted I wanted to be able to stride, we’ll just separate my legs if I wanted too, especially if it was a hot day, I’d have been so uncomfortable. Ooh and I’m 5’6.

sambee99: No I think that is a fit n flare – it has that outline where it comes away at your thighs. Beautiful dress, lovely detail and it shows off your figure.

Clutterqueen:  I actually had no problems walking in it, it is just when I went to sit down. I am thinking I will probably loosen the corset before dinner to allow more room for sitting? 

CatyLady:  Thank you!

My dress was fit and flare (Hayley Paige “Keaton”). I had to shimmy the dress up a little (but not all the way up, like not so high that the top of the skirt was over my bum) to sit but it was very easy maybe in part bc the material is kinda slippery and I was wearing spanx. 

Re: peeing, I actually took my whole dress off every time I peed which I highly recommend for zippered dresses. I would go in the handicap stall, get a friend to unzip, then jump out of the dress. It was nice bc it gave me a moment to breathe.

My dress is really tight across my hips. I think any sitting I do will be super awkward lol

Clutterqueen:  

That’s why personally I am probably going to go with an A-line dress for comfort. I am a bridal consultant and usually when I have brides with this question I bring out a chair and so they can practice. Normall when in a fitted gown you have to sit up right and right at the edge of the chair maybe at a side angle. I know it sounds weird but you just can’t sit back like you would on the couch in a t-shirt. You are going to have to be a little more rigid in your sitting, but honestly most of my brides only expect to sit during the meal and don’t mind sacrificing a little comfort for a more fitted shiloette.

I find it funny that people would spend that much money on a dress they aren’t 100% comfortable in!
