I think it looks amazing on you! It’ll look even more amazing once you find the perfect bra. Or maybe just get cups sewn in.

I’m kind of confused by all the comments about the lines in your hips. Almost every dress I’ve ever seen in this silhouette has those lines, its just part of having that style of dress. But I’ve never seen so many people in this group complain about them though. In fact I’ve seen multiple threads were girls were complaining about having them on their dress and everyone chimed in that the dress looks good and the lines are normal.

The pink is very pretty and the style gives an old world look.


please take this comment with the kindness intended.  The dress might be the measurements sent but does not fit your body properly.  The dress is too short from waist to under bust which can be fixed by bras, and also not cut correctly in hips and thighs, the evidence of that is in the photos that show the side seam of the skirt being pulled to the back, which is, unfortunately a cause of the crease lines. They don’t have it balanced correctly. 

I am a dressmaker in athletic wear, and some of my athlete clients come to me for formal wear.  They might be tiny people, but the cutting for a shapely body is much different.  I am reminded of the great dress that sofiekitty had that was form fitting in the booty but fit perfectly with a lot of dressmaker involvement. Hopefully you can find a good local seamstress to fix the creases to be a  custom fit.

@Barbiestylez:  Thank you! You look gorgeous in both! So are these two your final ones?

I am working on designing my own from a few dresses. 
I am small chested and worried about going strapless, even though I would go mermaid style. Do you feel you might have to pull up the dress once in a while? I’ve never tried a wedding dress on, but I hear they are heavy…  


Thanks again!!!
