@theloralae:  Can you post a photo of yourself or are you willing to give your height/measurements? That might help with suggestions. 

 

Honestly, I’m a curvy 4/6 pear of average height (think medium bust and of LOTS of bum), and I rock my convertible dress without a second thought (though mine isn’t a wedding dress and with heels I’m anywhere from 5’9″ – 6′). As long as you have the proper undergarments to keep you secure, then you should look and feel great in this dress, which is absolutely lovely, btw. 

 

Jersey knit fabric has tons of stretch, so it’s far more forgiving/flattering than a thin silk or chiffon might be. Since yours is a circle skirt, you can also get away with wearing a light petticoat underneath to give it some flare and to add an extra layer of security.

I think it depends on your build. I know I couldn’t pull it off, but if you’re on the slender side and don’t have a big bust then it should work.

Would love to see the different ways the dress can be worn. Looks very pretty.

given that it’s made according to your measurents, i think it’ll look pretty good

I think it’s beautiful but I worry about how clingy the fabric will be.

You may want to go to a bridal store and try on some slimmer dresses with drop-waists to make sure you like how it looks. Also, the shop has as 10-day return policy, so you can definitely return it if you know you don’t like it right away!

think it’s a great idea, but I would be concerned about the clinginess/transparency of the fabric, especially around the skirt area. In that photo the bottom half looks to be a single layer of jersey, which when combined with a light colour could be disastrous. I would definitely be either adding an underlayer or donning some Spanx to smooth things out and keep it from looking see-through.

if you even have an ounce of fat on you that is gonna shine through.  If you’re rail thin like the girl pictured, go for it.

I bought my dress without ever trying it on, so go for it.

The fabric looks slightly thin and by that i mean see-through.
