Hey we have similar measurements ๐Ÿ™‚  I had the same insecurities going dress shopping…and knowing my trouble area was my tummy, I wanted a corset back dress. And let me tell you, that corset does wonders…First dress I put on, I was like HEY! I have a waist! And omg, is that an hourglass figure? ๐Ÿ˜›  Ok so the arms are still a tad flabby but I just won’t raise them up and wave too hard so it don’t jiggle.  In a sense, I feel the process has just got me to learn to love my body.  Just enhance what I got with the right style, right color…and the little imperfections just seem to go away.  Enjoy dress shopping!

I also have similar measurements. I wasn’t feeling comfortable with my body either when I first went dress shopping. There are a lot of different style of dresses that can fit any bodytype and they can look amazing! The first dress I tried on made me look like I was 2 sizes smaller! It was great. They have corsets inside the dresses that can really compliment your curves. Don’t worry about going to stores and trying dresses- it is so fun and they have so many different styles, silohettes and sizes at a lot of the bridal stores.

I found the dress of my dreams and bought it in the size that I was about 6 months ago. However, the problem was that I wasn’t comfortable with myself for a reason – I wasn’t taking care of myself, I wasn’t eating the right foods and didn’t exercise enough. Even with the most beautiful dress in the world- a dress I know I wanted to get married in- I didn’t feel 100%. I tried on millions of gowns and realized it wasn’t the gown, it was me. I decided to take action and started working out. I feel so much better about myself, I feel great, it is has improved my health ten fold and I know that I look better in clothes as well.

Don’t be afraid! It’s a wonderful experience and the slips and bras and dresses really help tuck and lift! ๐Ÿ˜‰ You’ll feel great and everyone will think you look beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚
