coffeewaterwine89 :  Honestly this dress is stunning, it looks amazing on you like you say, its romantic and ethereal! I dont think you want to drop the waist at all, I think it would loose the effect and at the moment the proportions elogate your legs (which is never a bad thing!) obviously you’re standing on one of those little box things, but you see what I mean. Also, I love the low back, stunning! X

It is a beautiful dress and looks lovely on your stunning figure. Did you even get to try any fit and flare?

It looks great! If you really want to widen the hips out more, you can wear a petticoat underneath. But it’s beautiful as is!

I think it is stunning, but how do YOU feel in it? Did you try on fit and flares? Do you LOVE it? I had the same thing where I thought I found my dress but I had to try on the style I had in my mind before I could commit. Try on some fit and flares and then see how you feel!

While I agree the dress looks stunning on you, I do believe you should at least try on a few fit and flares if you haven’t already so that you can make a better informed decision.  I’m a firm believer in having a dress that you love instead of what others love on you.

Try a fit and flare in the same romantic look. You’ll look incredible! Also tag me if you upload a pic in the fitted style. I wanna see! 😊

coffeewaterwine89 :  it looks great, I can see why everyone liked it!

I’m not a fan of the fit and flare, but since you are, did you try any? How did they compare?

Be sure to consider things like ease of movement and bathroom trips too. Will you have to undress if you can’t hike the f&f up? Will you dunk this one because there’s so much fabric? Looks are great, practicality is too!

coffeewaterwine89 :  I love it! I too thought I wanted a fit and flare, and ended up with a tulle drop waist ballgown as well 🙂 Looks more comfortable than a fitted gown as well. Go for it!

I think it looks beautiful too!! Though agree with PP’s that you should try on different styles you originally considered just to be sure there are no dress regrets later 🙂

coffeewaterwine89 :  I think you look absolutely stunning and I especially love the colour on you. 

As the others have said, though, you have to love it yourself and not because of what anyone else might think. (The same also goes if the main reason you wanted a fit and flare was because your Fiance likes them – while it’s nice to think of his preferences, he’s not the one who’ll be wearing the dress.)

I would suggest you go and try it on by yourself again without anyone else there to see how you feel about it when there’s nobody else there to influence you.

But I also feel you should try on some fit and flares before you do that, because if you don’t you might always be wondering ‘what if’?

Here are some ones with a similar fabric, colour and some beading:





While a fit and flare is never going to look as flowy as an a-line, they can come close if they have a long train. You can also create more of a romantic/boho feel by wearing a cathedral veil or even a cape-style veil with a fit and flare.
