    weddingnewbee2019 :  you can totally pull off a fitted silhouette! IMO, you NEED hips for fitted dresses – they look best when you have a fairly large hip-to-waist ratio (aka “curves” or “hippy”). Yes, you look hippy….which is good! Embrace it (:

    fwiw: that dress is a trumpet or sheath (hard to tell from that pic), not a mermaid.

    weddingnewbee2019 :  That dress looks fantastic and I dont think you look too hippy! I think the dress highlights your curves beautifully! If you want to minimize your hips (which I dont think you should, but its about what you’re comfortable in) you could look at an a-line silhouette.

    You’re dreaming! You don’t look ” hippy” at all. You look amazing. That dress looks wonderful on you.

    I think you look great in a fitted dress.  If you’d like, you could always add some cups to the top to give the girls a lift, and it would make you look more balanced.  I don’t think you need it, but you might feel more comfortable.

    If your bust is one dress size smaller than your hips/ bum you would be hourglass. True mermaids are fitted almost all the way down to the knee. That’s closer to a trumpet or fit and flare! All of those styles would look phenomenal on your body shape 🙂

    to put into perspective: my bust is a 34, my hips are 42.. THAT is a pear haha!

    You look great in a fitted style. I think there’s grey areas to body shapes and you fall into hourglass/pear. So extreme hourglass or slight pear. My wish is to have more hips. I envy you.

    Looks great! Definitely don’t look disproportionate. Also you can add bra pads on top to look more balanced. I’m similar to you, somewhere between hour glass and pear. Based on the designer of my dress’ size chart, my bust is 3 sizes smaller than my hips! (granted there’s very incremental increases in measurement between sizes.)

    I bought an A line so it doesn’t matter so much what the hip measurement is, I did try on fit & flare and mermaid dresses, they looked really good too, I thought it would’ve looked disproportionate but it didn’t. Probably just looked a bit too sexy for the image I’d like to have for the wedding haha…
