Hi. Just a curious. Does shape and weight really matter when picking a dress? I use to be thin and very petite.I have doing jillian michaels workouts every morning or afternoon. I have had my eye on and would really like to wear a mermaid type of dress but afraid that it wont look well with my body. Since ive met my fiance ive gained weight and trying to lose weight to look good in my future wedding dress.

Yes, different dress types definitely look better on some body types than others. For example, I’m extremely tall. When I tried on a few empire waist dresses, it was pretty funny how ridiculously loooooooong they made me look. (And not in a good way.) But you’ll never know until you try some on, so don’t feel like you have to decide in advance that you’ll only try on certain types of dresses. I had a very clear list of do’s and don’t for my dress… and ended up with a dress that violated almost all of them.

The mermaid and fit and flare dresses with rouching/folding of the bodice seem to look good on most figures in my opinion. I am petite with a little extra weight but still hourglass and pretty much everything I tried on looked good except the dropped waist dresses. My mom asked when the baby was due because they emphasized my stomach in a very unflattering way.
The best thing to do is go to the salon with an open mind and try on a few different styles. Once the assistant saw how dresses looked on my body, she was able to make some suggestions that also looked really good on.
