I have my engagement pics tomorrow at an aquarium. I have no idea what to wear! Nearly everything I own is teal, purple or blue and I don’t want to blend in to the background.
I want to wear something flattering because I’m overweight, but have NO hips. I want to kinda.. “fake” them. They make push up bras! Why can’t they make push up hips/butts?
BUT I don’t want to wear a dress because then it will show my stovepipe cankles.
I’m going to look like a gigantic, fat amazonian warrior D:

@Chrysoberyl: okay lady, I guarantee you don’t have stovepipe cankles!
Do you have some options we could see? Out of the outfits that you think may be an option?
do you have any time to go shopping if need be?

they do make panties with butt enhancers… i have seen them at kohls… how tall are you can you pull off wearing a long skirt or a maxi dress?

@Lana_Rose: I don’t even see anything as an option at this point. I want to wear skinny jeans and boots but at the same time I want to wear a dress because they give me a good A-line figure. I have today for shopping. I was thinking a wine red so I feel comfortable in a darker color but it’s not “aquarium colored”
@asianyoushi: I’ve never looked good in maxi dresses because of my build. I look better in A-line dresses that come right below or right above the knee.
hmmm butt enhancers. I am curious..

Normally I would recommend Rent the Runway, but I’m not sure if you have time. You could call them and see if they can overnight something to you. They have amazing customer service.
FWIW, I was super paranoid about my weight before my engagement pictures too. Everything ended up working out perfectly, and I looked much better than I expected to. If you have a good photographer, they’ll know what angles to shoot to make you look your best. Just concentrate on your FI during the shoot and don’t get inside your own head. If you enjoy your time with him, your love for each other will shine through and that’s what makes a great photo. Plus, there’s always photoshop. 😉 Don’t stress! Enjoy this time together!

@Chrysoberyl: Wear whatever you want, just put a waist cincher under it and voila! Instant hourglass!
