I found this thread very helpful also. I am 165 and 5’4 and I feel big. I’m looking at other women this size and realizing that hey, 160 isn’t big, its normal! Every one of the brides looks great and healthy. I need to stop being so critical of myself.

I’ll play as well. Heread is my dress I ordered, but this is the sample size in the store that didn’t fit. This is 5’9 about 158. I’d like to be 145ish for my wedding day…loving everyone’s post here. I would have never thought 160s would look so beautiful. Thank you all for helping me see this.

So inspiring! My wedding goal was 150 but now I’ve revised it be around 160ish. That would be approximately 15 lbs by April. Working hard to lose half by December for engagement pictures. I lose weight very slowly. Thanks for this thread. Really helps me see things so much clearer.

I was about 165lbs on my wedding day, I’m 5’6″. I did want to lose a bit of weight before my wedding but then figured it wasn’t worth the stress. My dress sucked me in pretty good lol!

I know this is an old thread but I am so thankful someone brought it back. I went dress shopping in June/July and was so self-conscious! I’m 5’4″ and when I went shopping I was roughly 165-170 lbs. I carry most of my weight in my hips and bust (34DDD) but started gaining weight in my arms and stomach. A month ago I got up to 175 but I’ve lost about 10lbs since then and hope to be down to 145 by my wedding. I thought I was big for my height until seeing your photos! All beautiful brides! Here’s me in my dress for reference.

I think I was around 170 (maybe a little more on my wedding day). I am tall (close to 6 feet) so I hold me weight ok.

I’m 5’9″ and currently 173. Debating if I want to lose weight or try to stay as is and work on toning everything up because I do feel beautiful in my dress as is.

You look AMAZING as is! I wouldn’t focus losing weight but rather toning. Don’t lose those great curves!
