It’s a beautiful dress.  I should try it with a mermaid-style crinoline to make the bottom poofier.  I think that’s all it needs.

OMG! I absolutely love your dress and I happen to think you look stunning in it. I much prefer it with the sparkly little sash than plain. I think once you put the sash on, the dress is very slimming and draws attention to the right places. If I were you, I wouldn’t worry at all because you look great!

@tzmustafa:  I think it looks great on you! I like it much better than the second dress you posted! were you wearing any shapewear when you tried the first dress on? I know for me a good pair of spanx can make everything feel a little secure and less bulgy. I think you have a great shape and the dress really shows it off, you have a nice waist to hip ratio and you should show it off!

I think you look amazing. I love the shape. I would 100% keep that dress! I would either get some spanx (which, honestly, I am about the same size/shape as you, and i don’t see a lot of difference when i wear spanx) or the best thing, in my opinion, is a corset. it will give you rigid structure, smooths everything out, will keep the ladies looking high and good all night, and the added bonus is when your new groom and you go to bed that night, it is a sexy surprise!

@tzmustafa:  I love your dress.  I think you just need some good shapewear and it will have a totally different look.  And you look beautiful in it.  I agree with not wearing the belt, it draws the eye to your middle.

I have the same shape as you do.  I have been working on my weight, but I am still thick in the middle.  I thought that losing weight would make everything look better.  And then I tried dresses on and about cried!  I lost a lot of my chest, which seemed to enlarge the middle part.  Which may also be something that you had not considered before your reduction.  

I think shapewear and a good bra, and you will be in love with your dress!  Good luck!

I understand your feelings toward the midsection! I don’t think thats the most flattering dress, and I would consider going to a plus sized dress shop to try on dresses. I think there are many more flattering dresses out there.

If you want to keep that one, I would suggest rogo or another type of body shaper to ease your feelings towards your midsection.

@tzmustafa:  I like the first one better then the 2nd dress you showed. Honestly it is not the most flattering dress but get a nice mermaid slip to give you a fuller buttom and invest in some good spanx…also…PP said to talk about getting some boning in the dress. I agree.

The dress is GORGEOUS! You just need some proper undergarments to go with it.

I really like the first dress best. It is truly BEAUTIFUL.

Pay for some great shapers and put that badboy back on! 🙂

As a formerly plus-sized person, I know the joy of shapewear! 😀

I think you could wear either dress, but after dealing with my own body issues and dress regret I came to this conclusion:  keep trying on dresses until you find that one that you don’t have any doubts about.  It is out there.  If you have time to keep looking, I would, but not because you don’t look beautiful (you do) but only so you feel 100% confident about what you are wearing.  No matter how many times I was told I looked nice if I didn’t feel it, I didn’t show it.  If you haven’t already, give yourself an opportunity to try on several different styles, even if you think you don’t love them, and you might be surprised at what you actually like once it’s on.  The dress I finally wore and felt amazing in was unappealing on the hanger!
