I’m 5’4″ and I think I was about 145ish on my wedding day. I’m normally between 145-152. I was hoping to get to 135 for the wedding…DIDN’T HAPPEN! lol. I’ll hopefully get there this summer.

Anyways, I don’t absolutely love my figure, the biggest problem is that no matter how thin I get, I just have a very WIDE waist. I’m like a box 🙁  But other than that, I’m fine with the way I look

Edit – _ changed the pic to show a more frontal view. This was taken about a week before the wedding, so don’t mind the upset/bored/etc face. lol!

I’m about 5’6″ and was about 132ish on the wedding day.  Normally wear about a size 6.

Here’s my dress in the store, about 2 sizes too small…

 

And at the wedding…

I’m new here but here’s my dress!  I’m 5’7 and 135-140 here, typically wear a size 6-8.  My dress is a size 10. 

Now just gotta work on toning my arms! I wanted to diet some but my dress is a perfect fit, no alterations right now, so I’m thinking I’ll just maintain and try toning my arms and back.

@unixfairy: Oh you look gorgeous in this dress! Thank you so much for posting the pics– I wanted to see a photo of a real bride in MS M424C , and it is truly stunning.  I will be 40 when I get married, and I may get this dress.  Living in Faurbanks, Alaska and trying to find a dress is so hard– not a single “real” bridal boutique for 600 miles.  I will hopefully only make one trip to Anchorage to see dresses in person so I really depend on kind-hearted brides to post photos of themselves. Thanks!

Well, I’m normally a size 10, 5’8″, but here I think I was an 8.  I’m not sure what size the dress was, because it was made by a friend of mine, specifically to my body shape.

I know this is an older thread, but in case it helps future brides, here’s me in a size 6 dress and I am halfway between 5″6 and 5″7

I don’t know what ‘normal sized’ is – but I’m 5’3 weigh somewhere between 105 and 110lbs. (I’m a size 0/2 normally, but my wedding dress has been ordered in a size four on account of my hips.) Here is a picture of me in the sample dress … which is quite obviously made for somebody much taller than me! 

ETA: Alright, so I guess I’m not exactly in the hight and weight range that the OP was asking for – but I’ll leave my picture up anyway since I think I look pretty ‘normal sized’.
