I was in the bridal boutique today with my friend doing her final fitting for her wedding…since it was her day I didn’t want to try on anything just yet… (newly engaged here)… but when she was changing, I did ask the salelady what type dress she would recommend for my body type (being that I’m 5’3 and a street size 14 and VERY busty…. Regardless she suggested the fit and flair style for my body.
Any other brides out there short and “endowed” that chose the fit and flare dress style? I’d love to see what that looks like on a real bride. All heighs and sizes welcome…. just want to see this style on women besides models.
Thanks for sharing!!

@Sunshine805: I’m 5’4″ and about a size 10, and quite busty! I’m going to my first dress shopping appointment tomorrow and have a few fit and flares in mind, so I will report back! Hopefully I can take (or sneak) some photos!

I’m a 32DD so I qualify for the busty part, and I’m 5’2 🙂

@Sunshine805: sounds like see have a very similar build (5’3″/size 14/DDD). My dress isn’t technically a fit and flare but I’m going to take it in at the hips during alterations to give it more othere fit and flare look:

@meggs66: Thank you! Sure, it’s lazaro 3819, new it sells for 5k or so BUT it’s discontinued so I bought it preowned for $1600. There’s a size 10 for sale right now in preownedweddingdresses.com for that same price actually, you could probably negotiate it down I was so excited to buy it I didnt even negotiate the price hahaha lessons learned, but I still think I got a good deal!

I’m 5’4 and a street size 14. I’m a DDD at some places and fit and flare dresses made my curves look killer! This was the sample dress and I got a size smaller to make it fit better in the tummy area. Good luck! 🙂

I’m 5’3, 40D and a street size 16 and fit and flare is the way i’m going….
This is one I like but think the skirt needs to be a little higher to hide but belly more… I’m going next week to try on a few more but looking for more of a drop waist than a fit and flare.

I ended up trying on mostly A lines and some mermaids this weekend, but here’s one fit and flare that my sister actually picked out! Sorry the pic is crappy; I still need to get the actual photos from my sis (these were uploaded online where they can’t be downloaded again in full resolution)
I think it looks pretty awesome on, but I don’t know that it’s my wedding gown. I’m a 34DD, 5’4″, size 8-10 or so, as mentioned before.
