    I love the dress but I wouldnt say it is extremely flattering b/c it doesnt give (or show) you much of a shape. OR, was that the sample and probably a bit too big? I do think since you are so tiny you may look good in a fuller skirt? Do you have pics of other styles you tried on.

    PS: If YOU loved your dress I would keep it!

    I think you are in the right track.  Are you okay with getting a different dress though first and foremost?  I’m a size 00 as well though probably have a bit more hips than you (usually size 0 for that).  I found that sheath dresses and a-lines (some drop waists) worked best.  Be careful of the material you use.  Since we have such slim willowy frames you don’t want to use anything to “heavy” this include” lots of crioline – big puffy skirts, heavy laces, runching, tafetta etc.  I found light flowy materials to look best as it didn’t weigh me down.  I would also avoid covering your neck but if you like that look, I would go for an illusion type neckline or one with a very light/sparce lace.

    Have you looked at different dress styles?  If not I would recommend that, no two bodies are the same and what may have worked well for me might not look well for you even if we seem to have the same body frame.

    I think it may just be the belt: it is too thick and makes you look boxy. Plus, after it is taken in it will probably look 1000x more flattering

    I really like that dress on you! Maybe try on a mermaid/trumpet style that flares out around the thighs. That would give you more of a curvy look I think. I’ve never had your “problem” (using the term very loosely) so I can’t speak from experience, but I think you look great!

    This is mine- looks great on small frames, not very forgiving on larger frames. It’s lace but not heavy at all:

    @babylo0n:  I would agree with a PP and then stick to a sheath bc I think that style works very well on slim figures only!

    I am a size 2 in bridal, so not a whole lot bigger than you and I found that slim sheaths and fit and flares really flattered my shape. You may want to try those – I think you are definitely on the right track with the first dress you picked.

    your a size 0…so naturally you dont have many curves (nothing wrong with that). No dress is gonna give you what u dont have. I think the dress looks good on you….i could never pull it off cuz i have curvy hips and thighs. If you like the dress that keep it. Dont let what your inlaws think dictate what u do.

    Tyanna by Venus (part of their exclusive line- not on their website)

    I think it’s the most gorgeous dress (originally bought the Mikaella 1406, then had dress regret and bought this one), but it seems most people prefer the tulle. I’m not big on tulle myself as I find lace is such a classy and timeless look, but you have to feel amazing in whatever dress you pick! It sells for $1550, but I got 20% off for buying on the same day I tried it on!
