I don’t think someone who is your size can ever look fat! If anything you can carry the ball gown look. if you want to be unique, then do it in the way you style your hair and the shoes you wear or your jewelry.

@Love1313:  If you are worried about the ball gown being to poofy maybe have some tulle or whatever removed from underneath the dress.

My dress is 2-3 sizes too big, so even though I have it in the closet, alterations won’t be done until a couple of months before the wedding so I don’t REALLY know how it’s going to look on me. But you know what? Whenever I tell my guy “I hope you love the dress” his answer is always “Is the sun going to come up tomorrow?” It’s a dumb question because no matter what I’m wearing that day, he’s going to think I’m the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. I think we stress out a little too much about THE dress sometimes. Yes, we want to find THE dress and feel the most beautiful we have ever felt. I think there are probably tons of dresses that could fit that bill, and yours will be one of them. Once you get it, put it on, put on your accessories… you’ll see how awesome you look and know you made the right decision.

@Love1313:  You said you are worried the dress doesn’t flatter you. Why exactly is that? I know some dresses, especially the more form-fitting/mermaid styles, can highlight certain areas, but a ballgown/A- line in general is a flattering silhouette to all girls. A stock picture of your dress would be helpful in giving us an idea.

Also, you are a size 2-4? I don’t think a ballgown (or any gown for that matter) can make you look fat! 😉 This coming from a similar size girl who has a huge ballgown too! When else are you going to have the chance to wear a ballgown? Rock it! 🙂
