I think it looks beautiful on you and is very flattering. I wouldn’t worry about it- if you love the dress and it’s comfortable then just go with it. Besides, how many, of the hundreds of photos taken, will be of your back? Maybe a few?

NO WAY!  That dress is incredible and you look incredible in it.  You have a womenly curve but it’s certainly not a bad thing.  To be honest, you look very proportioned to me.  And I love the dress!  Rock it with confidence 🙂

I think you have beautiful curves! Rock that dress becuase it looks amazing on you and you said you love it. It’s a keeper. What about getting a petticoat to wear under the skirt to poof it out a tiny bit? Did they have you try it on with different undergarments?

As someone who is also pear shaped (smaller up top, big ol’ hips at the bottom), I worried that slim fit styles would look ridiculous on me and emphasize my wideness. Instead I was surprised to find that I felt sexy and curvy in trumpet gowns. No one else sees the flaws that you do, I promise.

Also, if people are staring at your butt on the day of your wedding, they’re either weird perverts or your husband. And you know he already likes what you’ve got going on!

Nooo! The dress is beautiful, keep it! You look very pretty, and it is really flattering on you. You don’t need to change anything!

Don’t change a thing!  I would kill for your curves.  You don’t look disproportionate to me at all.  This dress is very flattering on you.

You look beautiful in the dress, not huge at all.

You are beautiful girl and I love your curves! Like Marilyn Monroe hips 🙂 Many girls would die for hips and a hourglass figure like yours. I think society and the media right now consider any curves not appealing but they are wrong. You look amazing!

Dfitzy:  I think we’re dress twins!!! Is that a Casablanca?  I felt the same way because I have big hips as well, but I love the way my wedding photos came out.  The dress (and photographers, of course) photographed so well!  I think you look stunning in this picture, but you’ll look even more beautiful on your wedding day with your finished look.  It’s a gorgeous dress, and it’s unique compared to most of the lace dresses out there these days.

Dfitzy:  The back is such a giveaway!  I got a few alterations.  I didn’t have to get it hemmed because I knew I was wearing flats, but I got it taken in in the waist, hips, and bust.  I had the seamstress attach a bustle.  I didn’t wear a bra because there’s so much padding in the chest, I didn’t need one.  The boning and bust alterations made it feel very comfortable and safe.   I thought about using bra cups to fill in the dress more because the top was HUGE, but they made me look like I got implants.  I had to get mine altered at the last minute, so by the time we figured out how to fix the bust, it was too late.  My seamstress realized she had to pull the boning up and cut it at the top.  It needed it more, but I ran out of time, so it didn’t fit as well as I’d have liked, but it was a major improvement.  I still love the dress and am thrilled with the pictures!
