Okay skinny mini… you’re just being an ass now. Your hips in no way look huge and the dress looks nothing less than stunning on you! Even despite the shotty cell phone photo. 

Stop coming up with reasons to hate the dress and instead focus on rejoycing in how much $ you saved yourself and how FABULOUS you look. Spice it up with a gorgeous necklace and some lingerie underneath that will make you feel every bit as much like the goddess you are.

JWF11:  your hips do look larger than your waist and bust but do you know why that is? It’s because you are a woman! And I bet your FI will love how they look.

The positive side is that your hips make your waist look tiny. In my opinion, that style of dress can only be worn by women with small waists and larger hips, like you. Skinny doesn’t cut it.

If you really need to balance the dress out, I would suggest adding some width to the neckline, by adding straps such as off-the-shoulder straps or cap sleeves.

The other possibility is to see if it can be taken out any at the lower thigh, so that it flares out about level to where your watch strap is. That might be a bit more flattering to your shape.

But please continue to show off those curves! Your FI will thank you for it!

My dear, you do not look like a blimp…at all! You are rocking that dress and I personally don’t think you need to change a thing. Are you wearing a belt/sash? I don’t think you need one but it can define the waist a bit more and really give you a beautiful hourglass shape. Your dress is so timeless, classy, and elegant!

JWF11:  just wait until it’s altered! You’re going to look gorgeous! Very similar to Sottero & Midgley’s Campbell:

My only suggestion once it’s taken in properly is to push up the boobs a bit 😀

JWF11:  I wish I had your hips, you need a little bit of hip to pull off a dress like that.  I tried some on and I looked like a linebacker, without hips to balance my shoulders looked masive.  I think that’s the perfect shape for you!  Also that dress looks expensive so if you got a good deal that’s a bonus.
