I am also wearing a dropped waist gown–was really concerned about it because I am bottom heavy and petite but I LOVE it and am going to go for it!!!

This site is so amazing! I was wondering what girls that aren’t stick thin would look like in a dropped waist dress, and this showed me exactly what I needed to see. It is perfect, and I love it! I am going to have my second child in September (due on the 9th) and I was curious to know if the Kenneth Pool Degas would make me ridiculous. All I can do is try it on, and if I like it I am going for it!


Thanks girls!

The curves remind me of 40’s and 50’s hollywood.  Thats how Marylin Monroe and those girls looked like.  I would go for it.  Its a beautiful and sexy look.

I’m getting a twinge of dress envy now! I LOVE clothes that make my hips huge. There’s just something about it that makes me feel smokin’.

YAY YAY and another YAY! πŸ™‚ All you ladies look Fabulous! πŸ™‚

@Charbirdie who 1st posted…this dress is awesome on you!

@Shannon1126: Yes, chica, you listen to the hive…;) and SO glad you are deciding to give your the ‘boxed up dress’ another chance. πŸ™‚ It’s beautiful on you!

I too have a dress I bought..on a whim b/c the price was right and thought I pperrhapps could pull it off like the curvy bride that was selling it….but haven’t gotten up the nerve to try it on again since my 1st attempt didn’t go so well back in mid-January. I realize it’s going on 6+ months since then, but like some of you bees…I’m nervous that my family will comment on my ‘big butt’, ‘wide hips’, etc. *sigh* Yeah, I have family like that too..err..

Anyway…I hope to be able to get the dress tried on soon..haha…b/c if for any reason it doesn’t fit or work on me, I’ll have to have time to look elsewhere.

ANYWAY…thanks for sharing this post! πŸ™‚ Rock your dresses ladies! πŸ™‚

I’m about as hourglass as hourglass can get… my shoulders measure about the same as my hips. I’m totally rocking a tight dress cause I’m proud to have curves =)

I have hips too, but didn’t get a drop waist dress because I didn’t want to hear the comments (my mom is so good at the backhanded compliments and telling me how big my bottom is), so I got a semi- A-line. Now, I’m kind of jealous!

@TheFutureMcBride: Me too! I’m wearing a “modified A-line” because I wanted to de-emphasize my hips. My mom is supportive (I inherited her petite pear shape) but my SIL always gives me backhanded “compliments” about my big butt. Even the David’s Bridal salesgirl said, “For a little girl you’ve got some hips on you.” Nothing like a little encouragement to help a bride feel secure! Needless to say, I didn’t go with DB. Y’all look truly, seriously great! Congrats on some beautiful choices.

Shannon–that dress is AMAZING!  It fits your body perfectly!  I am in shock that you are considering not wearing it!

@jamiemichelle:  I particularly love yours, perhaps because I am partial to straps and sleeves.
