Haha I have had the exact opposite reaction – I need that extra belly space right now! You should be thankful that you don’t, lucky girl.

I like the classic shift dress; I like classic styles you can use for years and years

I know!  I’ve been to a lot of wedding this summer and it seems like that is totally the style on every guest there. I wore a slim fitting dress to the last wedding I went to and had multiple compliments on the dress saying that it was such a "different" style.  Nice to show off the curves once in a while!

I totally understand where you are coming from. Except for me it’s the empire waist… I’m a pretty thin girl, always have been, but for some reason pretty much anything with an empire waist makes me look preggers, and it’s all I can seem to find nowadays! So yes, I am really disappointed in the latest styles.

I’m with you Erin.  I still have no Rehearsal Dinner dress.  It’s making me crazy.  Everything looks ridiculous on me.  And I have the added problem that most things are too big to begin with, and when stuff does come in my size I swear there’s like 2 in the entire country.  I’m making one last ditch search effort this weekend.  Otherwise I’m just wearing shorts (JK).  No, but seriously, I’ve worn anything decent I ahve to some other wedding related event.  I might have to rewear.  I don’t really want to, but what can you do?

Miss Snowflake — I am totally with you on empire waist. Except, I am busty so it makes me look even more prego!

I feel ya but for me it’s a different problem.  I can’t wear any dresses or shirts that have absolutely no seams to definite the waist.  I have a very hour glass shape with boobs and hips and if a dress doesn’ thave a defined waist, (be it hight or low), I look SO fat because the fabric hangs off my boobs, which are REALLY far out past the rest of me.

UGh, I’m having the same problem. the bubble dessses make me look bad bad bad. And the wierd extra fabric in the front looks aweful on me too- makes me look a lot bigger than I am. I’m still on the hunt for the perfect Rehearsal Dinner dress, and yes, I can’t wait until fall’s fashions come out, hopefully they will be better!

I have bought and returned at least 10 dresses in the past two months.  I hate the roomy waist styles.  I am very thin but since my hips are >10-11" larger than my waist, extra room in the waist just makes me look fat.  I have a very narrow waist, and I need to show it off to avoid looking much bigger than I am.

 Have you seen this?  http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=26497&vid=1&pid=646657  It cinches around the waist and isn’t super frou frou, but it is cute, especially for a rehearsal dinner.  I have it, but it’s a bit short on me so I’m not sure what to do with it.

chicagobride I love that dress!  But Im with you Erin.  Im not a fad girl, I like classic pieces that are timeless.  I cant seem to find anything either.  Bubble looks bad, Fiance hates empire (so do I) and layers on me are just no good.  Oh and I dont enjoy prints (on me,)  So Im SoL.   figure I wont start looking for a Rehearsal Dinner dress until a few weeks before.  If I dont find anything, Ill wear something I already have

I totally agree with you, Erindesmar!  I had a really hard time finding a Rehearsal Dinner dress.  I’m 31 and I just felt like the bubble hem just looked too young on me.  It didn’t have the classic feel I was looking for.  I ended up just wearing something that I had in my closet (but hadn’t actually ever worn before).  Have you tried the JCrew final sale?
