Can you not see that you have a body most women would seriously envy? Your dress looks effortlessly elegant on you.

Personally I prefer it sashless but the sash is a lovely one and it doesn’t detract at all from the dress. I just feel your body looks more streamlined without the sash breaking up the clean lines of the dress. I can see what you mean about the little wrinkle on the front of the dress but once you are holding your bouquet I thinkit will be meaningless.

I am also a person who doesn’t like to feel “exposed” with low backs etc but your body certainly has the goods to deliver when it comes to this look.

I don’t think the problem is anywhere near as bad as you think! You look lovely! 

However, you DID choose i style of dress that specifically emphasizes the hips because of its cut.  I think you’ll have to make your peace with that. 

But know that this style of dress exists BECAUSE brides want your shape!

The dress looks great from the side and from the back. I get what you mean about low cut sides – it would bug me too- but I wouldn’t worry about it. Not too much cleavage at all. 

However, I can see what you mean about the cut of the dress. It emphasizes your hips. I think an a-line or ball gown would have suited your figure better. That being said, you still look gorgeous and no matter what you wear it’ll be fine.  I just wanted to validate the way you feel. I have a dislike for my broad shoulders and would much rather people tell me when a top isn’t flattering.

And I should just add. Even though I can see why you think the dress is really hippy, I would encourage you to just rock it. It doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Just gotta embrace your body and your supposed “flaws”.

I think it’s lovely. What’s wrong with small waist and bigger hips?

sharpie01 :  I think you look amazing 🙂 If you are feeling self-concious, however, it is definately worth speaking to your seamstress about adding panels. Do you have a veil/jewellery? I was thinking this might visually help to “balance you out” when you have everything you’ll be wearing on the day on. I know how you feel – I am 34/27/40 and have chosen a dress a similar shape to you, but mine has quite thick straps which sit almost on the outer edge of my shoulders, so they just balance me out visually.

I gasped out loud when I saw your pictures – you look absolutely stunning!! Have you considered wearing a veil? Maybe the extra “coverage” would help you feel better about the open back?

You look amazing! I would die for your shape!! Personally, I would get rid of the sash as I feel it cuts you and the dress in half but it is gorgeous if you plan on keeping it. The only one who needs to be comfortable is you!!

You look gorgeous! 

I personally like the sash, because it gives the dress a little extra something and it accentuates your small waist. I understand that you’re worried that accentuating your waist will incidentally accentuate your hips (I would never think yours are “too big” by the way…they aren’t!), but the fact is all you’re doing is showing the world that you have a body most women would kill to have. 

ETA: I do like the idea of a lace panel at the back. You certainly don’t need one, but I think it would look beautiful. If you add the panel though, I definitely recommend keeping the sash. Otherwise I think it might look a little too much like a column of unbroken fabric.
