I’m going to be embarking on dress shopping soon and I am in love with asymmetrical waisted gowns, but I am worried about a girl my size.
I’m 5’3 and about a size 22/24, with more of my weight in my hips and bum.
Has anyone worn or will be wearing asymmetrical waisted gowns? Do they look good on us bigger girls? Photos of yourselves wearing them would be awesome too!

Mine is slightly assymetrical, but it might work for me because, even though I’m fairly large, my waist is quite small, so that’s an area I tried to draw attention to when looking for a dress. But if you’re a different shape, then it may not work for you at all.

My Jessie has an asymmetrical waist, and I love it! I’m a 14 up top, and an 18 in the hips..
Please excuse the wrinkles! She was fresh out of the box. 🙂
Here’s the sample that was less wrinkled (and laced up tighter!):
I think asymmetrical waists + ruching is very flattering on us bigger gals! 🙂

It really depends on your sensitive body image points. I found that asymmetric waists were too form fitting for me because I am very self-conscious about my pear shape. But a friend of mine who is more of an apple shape rocks her asymmetric waist dress like there is no tomorrow. The dropped, asymmetric waist really highlights her curves just right. Just go into your dress appointments with an open mind, be willing to try on any shape/cut, and see what looks and feels best on you. Have fun!

Mine is asymmetrical lite. haha. It was 3 sizes too small so i wasnt able to pull it down quite far enough to give the photo the true effect. Im a street size 22/24 and will be ordering the dress in a 28 with some extreme tailoring down in the bust because im all hips these days. I dont find the asymmetrical waist is effected too much being plus size. I think as long as the bodice is fitted appropriatley it will look fantastic IMO. Good Luck in your search

I tried on a Sophia Tolli dress with assymetrical dropped waist and it was VERY flattering although it wasn’t what I wanted but yes it looked great.

@LondonAugust: Mine is an asymmetrical waist… it actually is more like an asymmetrical fit and flair/trumpet style… anyways, it makes my waist look longer than it is! I love it! I’m a 16 in street clothes and VERY apple shaped, this dress gives me bomb dot com curves.
