@imalawyerbride:  So sorry to hear that! Yes, bridal sizes are often bigger than our street sizes. Could you raise the issue with the bridal store? Maybe they would be able to rush order a dress in 4 months? Or maybe have them give you the sample which you can alter?

Alternatively, try selling the dress and look out for a used dress in the right size for sale? I think Allure dresses are pretty popular so that may be an option. Which style is your dress? Can you post a picture and maybe we’ll help you look?

You’re already a size 4 but maybe as a last resort, try working out these few months and see if the dress can fit better?

@imalawyerbride:  Could you post a picture of yourself in the dress? It’s probably not as bad as you think it looks! I’m also bottom heavy and lunges and squats have helped toned my butt and hips and lost half an inch in 3 weeks.

This bride is selling her dress in sz 4. I’m linking this to give you an idea how the fit is. She is a street size 4 and a 6 in the bottom…and she looks great in her wedding picture!

This bride is selling her brand-new unaltered sz6 dress at USD$1100.

I think some sites call it a fluted a line.  More fitted in the hip then flutes out.  It is a gorgeous dress and I am sure you look great.  May I offer a tip?  See if the seamstress can tweak the shape to let out the hip area to make it more of an a line??  Also maybe add another layer of netting underneath to add more volume to the bottom making the upper part look smaller? I am sure the dress will look fantastic when it is all done.  Seamstresses work wonders.

also I read a poll about a year ago that said that the female pear shape is the most desirable to men  – so actually your concerns might be your Husband to Be’s wildest fantesies  🙂
