It is hard to tell. Honestly, just grab whatever looks pretty and try it on! Haha, I got my dress at ROTB and I tried on a lot of different styles. You might surprise yourself with something you did not expect!

Mine’s relatively fit-flare and what made it most obvious on the hanger was how low the waist/drop line went.  I could clearly see that the ruching went down more than half way on the dress before the skirt began.  Also, if you can see the true ‘hourglass’ shape of the silhouette, that’s going to be a VERY fitted gown.  🙂

try sliding your hand down the bag.  While i was carrying mine home on the leuser cruiser (bus) the other day I noticed while carrying it that it was a cinch to carry except at the bottom where there was the crinolyn and fullness.  I bet it would feel skinny, skinny, fatter…. super fat if it was a fit and flare.

Good luck at running with the brides!

@Bellagiobride: If you go after the rush which ends at like 11 or noon, it wont be crazy at all and you’ll have plenty of time and your pick at 1000s of dresses.  I went after work at 5pm and it was pretty empty and all the dresses were nicely back on the racks.  I ended up finding my dress there.

Oh, and yes, just grab anything you see that you like, most I found was a size 10-14.  Most likely you’ll need alterations, so even if the cut isnt perfect yet, you can alter it.  Mine was more of an a-line and I turned it in to a more fitted silouette.
