Ok so I have gained some weight lately like 10 kgs (I am now size 12 uk)that I try to get them off until January when I want to order my dress.
My dream dress hmm low waist with puffy skirt long train,strapless something from san patrick or enzoani(Debra)
I did vist 3 shops until now with my sister that she is supposed to help me out to pick a nice dress.
In all those shops the sellers keep telling me that I need to take a high waisted skirt because is better to hide my hips,that will make me look thiner and is best for me then what I want.My sister on the other hand is no help at all because she keeps telling me the ones she will pick if ever she will marry.My sister can’t understand I want lace dresses and give me advice just over dresses i don’t like.
I am so sad I wish I could lose weight very fast and show all that I can look good in that dress that show my hips.Why should I hide it?I have a husband that keep telling me that i am pretty the way I am but this womans inclusive my sister make me feel so uncertain about the way I look 🙁
Here is one picture with the type of dress with high waist that I don;t really like 🙁
I hope this saturday I can get a picture also with a low waisted line.

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. 🙂

@almostmrsj: That was my idea too that if a dress doesn’t hug my hips will make me look even bigger.But this ladies say that is best to hide hips so my waist look thiner.
I went today in a shop to try a dress from enzoani and when I got there (after driving 1 hour) I found out that that dress is just in size 6 uk and 8 uk so I couldn t get any idea how I would look in that… 🙁 All their dresses was in little sizes.they said they usually have just tiny girls coming to try on there.I did feel pretty frustrated and for sure I will not buy anything from them.What shop have as show models just little sizes?? :/ That is not normal.
Hope for more luck Saturday.
