I love my dress! I’m a SS 14 and this is a 16 size, last time i tried it on was in December so im definitely working on loosing some weight before the alterations =)

I’m a SS 12, and this dress is a size 10 in Reem Acra (which is probably like a SS 6). Needless to say, I am having MAJOR alterations done to make it fit, since I bought the sample. Here I am in it:

I’m street size 14. I agree with some previous posters about trying on all different styles. I was convinced that I would have to stick with A-Lines to hide my hips and ass (which are, like, three times the size of the rest of me). But I tried on this trumpet and felt so sexy and great in it!

Here it is on the model (Essense of Australia):

 

And on me. I’m getting a similar sash, but a much larger flower. With the large flower, I’m thinking of skipping a neckalace and going with big earrings and a bracelet. I’m also wearing my hair down or half up, so might do a flower there as well.

Street size 10-12 (hoping to get back to being an 8-10!)

Paloma Blanca dress ordered in a size 16 – I’m a 34F with a 32 inch waist, so the dress had to be ordered to fit my chest and will be taken in as needed elsewhere.

This is the only photo I have of myself in the dress

@thumpurr:  Here I am in the sample gown size 10. It is a little snug so I ordered a 12.

I was a 16, now a 14.  I think I ordered this in a 16 as the designer followed regular sizing.

Subbing to this thread! I’m a SS 12/14 and also could never find any pictures of dresses on someone my size. I go shopping for the first time Thursday. Just want to add everyone looks stunning in their dresses!

Street size 10, wedding dress size 14 (!!!) … Like a lot of Bees have implied, it’s sometimes difficult to get over the higher size shock, but as long as you feel beautiful, what does it matter? 🙂

I’m between a street size 10-14 (depending on where I’m buying)  (and short, about 5’4) LOVED THIS DRESS. Maggie Sottero Ambrosia size 12. Fit like a glove. I was worried about the weight but at least trying it on did not feel too bad. I actually have gained about 20lbs since I got engaged and was worried about finding a dress I felt beautiful in. What helped me, is I went and tried some dresses on by myself so that I could get an idea of what I liked on my own without worrying about pleasing my friends and family. To save on cost I actually bought this dress used!

Good luck to everyone who is still looking! Thanks for previous posters for sharing their beautiful dresses- it’s great to see them on real people!
