Editted in leui of the last comment by OP: Your body is you- and that is what EVERYONE at your wedding should love- not jus Fiance. I’d remind your mom of THAT!

You don’t look like a heffer.  You have curves.  Rock them and who cares what anyone thinks.

You look beautiful, not pregnant! I think curves are far sexier on a woman than bones. I love that dress (it happens to be the same dress I have) and you look incredible in it.

If you don’t mind me asking, what alterations did you have done? Did you have the bottom hemmed and was it crazy expensive? I have my appointment on Saturday and I’m scared it’s going to cost more than the dress. I need to have mine taken in 2 sizes as well as hemmed.

 “I know my future husband loves the way i look, even if I don’t love it, and it’s his face that counts on that day”

OP I think you hit the nail on the head. If you think he will love it, that is all that matters. If it’s something you will worry about the whole day invest in actual spanx or a corset, unfortunatly the expensive ones actually do work better than the generic name ones 🙁 I only say this because I know for me personally, if I feel there is something wrong with the way I look in something it is all I can think about. Even if no one else can see it!

If you will feel comfortable in it, I say go for it. You look great, and really who is going to notice anything other than how beautiful you are on your wedding day?

You look beautiful, my dear!!  I’m sad for you that your mother said what she did, but please don’t let it get in the way of your happiness.  Rock your curves AND that gorgeous lace!!!  🙂

I am a size 2 and I am deeply offended by this post. 


Just kidding! OP, I love your dress and you look lovely in it. Moms say the darnedest things sometimes, don’t they? 🙂
