@Lollybags:  I think it is gorgeous and I think you look great. I wish I could pull something like this off.

It’s beautiful! I just checked out the original post and definiely think its more flattering now. I think some sort of shapewear is essential with such a delicate fabric, you totally rock that dress!

@Andthepupmakes3:  

@j_jaye:  

+1000.

Seriously, girl. you have just the right amount of curves – and in the right places – for that dress. I don’t think it would flow as well if you didn’t have hips. 

I think saddlebags is such a stupid word as well. IMHo, thighs look better with a bit of extra in that area – it’s like they give you a natural mermaid effect and make your waist look even tinier. And look at that flat stomach.

You look absolutely sensatonal and I’m sure your FI will be thrilled!

@Lollybags:  You look gorgeous. Seriously. I think your anxieties are stemming from your long-held self-image, and not from what you’re seeing in the mirror today. We all have our little body things that we’re self-conscious about, but in this case, that thing is no longer even noticeable to an outside observer. Your hips look great and you have the perfect figure for that beautiful dress.

If you had just posted this picture and asked what body type the person in it has, I might have said hourglass- I would never have said pear.
