Hello fellow bees,
I’m in love with a Cristiano Lucci dress but haven’t been able to try it on because the store that carries this brand does not have my size. I know the top will look gorgeous because I’ve tried on similar gowns with beaded tops. I’m a little worried about the botom part being unflatering on me though. I’m curvy but proportionate ( 5’9″, 39 bust, 29 waist and 41 hips) but am still worried it may not be forgiving enough. I can’t stop thinking about this dress though! Any curvy brides out there wearing this style? I would love to see your pic!
Also – do you think anything could be done to aleviate my concern? I’m scared my yummt would show. Maybe adding boning could prevent that? Wearing a corset? ( I really don’t have THAT much of a tummy I’m just afraid the fabric will be unforgiving). thanks!!
Here’s THE dress 🙂

Sorry i dont have a Pic. But im 5’7 and about 2 inches smaller in all measures. I tried on a dress similar to that, in that it had some lace on top then a plain fitted skirt. However i found the break in fabric at the natural waist negatively accented my hips, because it looks more empire line with a big basketball emphasized than anything. I dont have much of a tummy ive got tree trunk legs though and big saddle bags. For our hourglass/pear shape i found a dropped waist either from like a ball gown with skirt starting at the hips or a fit and flair worked best. That way the skinniest part of you is accented not the wall between two halves. veing curvy we can do still a mermaid but need the right accents in the right places. I recommend trying this or similar dresses on with this shape and cut at natural waist, and see how you feel.

I think one of the key things with satin is to make sure it fits well. When any fabric is too tight it pulls across that area, and the shinyness of satin really highlights that pulling. But a good seamstress should be able to take care of that.
