    Yep, shows off the butt!

    No, dress is beautiful as it is! Don't change it!

    Maybe a little taken in.

    Go big or go home! Turn it into a mermaid!

    @inle:  Sooo pretty as is. The thumbs up pic is literally a thumbs up!

    I think slim A is the best for your shape, but if you look something else, I’d rather suggest anything except mermaids/fitnflares. I’m the opposite – small chested and wide hips. I originally wanted slim A line but I was advised fitnflares are the best for my shape and when I tried slim A and fitnflares, yes I could see that. So I gave up A line. You rock it. And the veil is really beautiful too!

    @inle:  ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah it’s confusing. My mom has a shape like you. I think you’re an inverted triangle. Some people think it’s the same to apple, but I don’t think so. Apples are bigger in the waist while inverted triangles aren’t. I also think you’re not an hourglass. But not because of your waist (I think you have small enough waist) but because you have lean hips. What I love the most about inverted triangles, like you or my mom, is there’s stronger type of femine-ness. At least I think so. I love the long lean silhouette under the bust, that’s stunning. I think you should wear something that highlights your breasts and lean silhouette underneath.

    IMO mermaid/fitnflare gowns bring the focus on the waist and hips. Though I know my Fiance likes my shape as the way is, if I had breasts like you, I would definitely let the focus stay on the breasts ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You know, I love your dress just the way it is! Are you wearing any type of slip or crinoline under your dress? I wonder if you’re just lacking a little bit of volume under the skirt…

    I think you could make it into a fit and flare but I wouldn’t go as far as making it into a mermaid. I don’t think that would look right. My dress is similar and it’s a fit and flare… here’s a stock pic of it and then a picture of me in it.

    @inle:  Yeah here’s my gown without and with the crinoline.  It made a HUGE difference!
