Holy crap that dress is gorgeous on you!  

That being said, pick the dress YOU love.

Why are these bridal salons mentioning body parts you “need” to hide!!!  That is SO rude!  You look fantastic in that dress, but if it’s not what you want DON’T GET IT!  You’ll be more likely to suffer dress regret!

My one piece of advice if you think you’re going to fluctuate in weight: CORSET!

I’m a size 12 (US) and am wearing a fit and flare/mermaid type gown.  I’m not hiding anything and think I look just fine 😉

@Sophia24 -I am a US Size 12 and normally I hide my curves…but my wedding is the day for me to show off my curves and be proud. Afterall my Fiance loves my curves and WOULD love a dress that shows them off!

I ordered a fit and flare gown that is supposed to show off curves. It is very feminine to me which is what I am hoping for. (I will post a pic if you want…I have gained a little weight since the pic but my dress does not come in until Decemeber).

I’m a lot bigger than you and my dress was fitted to my hips.  I looked gooood.  Higher waists make you look bigger on the bottom, not smaller.

I think you should find a dress that makes you feel beautiful and you are COMFORTABLE in. Who cares what they say?  The dress is for YOU and YOUR wedding- not them.
My first trip to a bridal salon they told me nothing that hugs my hips, it won’t be flattering blah blah. they wouldn’t even LET me try on a mermaid. I ended up with a fit and flare… and it is awesome and I feel amazing in it. The moral of the story? Some people open their mouths just to hear themselves talk… doesn’t make them right!

You should go by yourself, leave your sister at home if she’s not helpful.

I have hips and am a size 12 in dresses, and I still went with a lace/tulle that had a lower waist. It was actually my second dress – my first was kind of like the one you’re wearing in the pic, but I ended up wanting something that showed off my figure a bit more. Here’s a picture of both of mine if that helps…in the end I felt more womanly and beautiful in the lower waisted dress, and a bride who si confident in her dress and how she looks is always going to be better!

This was the first dress..it was pretty, and it emphasized the smallest point of my body, my waist…but I had tons of dress regret.

Second dress…and I was so much happier and more confident in it – even though my hips aren’t the smallest, so what? My husband likes my curves and so do I! It’s not like I’m fat, I just have hips, big deal. I loved the way I looked.

You are going to look amazing regardless of the dress but make sure you feel great in!  I’ve seen people in breathtaking clothes but it looks “off” since the person wearing it is clearly uncomfortable in it. 🙂
