sfp:  What a fun idea! I actually think a ballgown would look really amazing on you- you should definitely try some on and tell us how it goes! I also think an a-line or fit-and-flare would be lovely, but I might avoid the mermaid if you are self-conscious about your butt! That style tends to highlight the booty. 

I have no idea why this is sideways. This is a super flattering picture of me- I’m 5’2, and have gained nearly fifty pounds since going on birth control and moving to college. I’m very self-conscious about my weight, and my least favorite parts that I’d like to minimize are my tummy, hips/thighs, and ESPECIALLY my back-fat. Lol. I love backless dresses, but I swear, back-fat has become the bain of my existence since gaining weight. I’m hoping to be back down to my pre-college size by my wedding in two years. 

My boobs are my favorite body part, but I don’t really want a ton of boobage per se. I also randomly like my collarbone/neck. Fiance would probably like to see my butt take center stage as far as the dress goes, lol.

I think you would look really good with a fitted bodice and then a little flare at the bottom kind of like a mermaid but not too mermaidy! I found this infographic on pinterest which is pretty cool with different kind of wedding dress styles you should look at it!

 Maybe something like this:

I don’t have any really good pics for this purpose, but I’ll still play ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m 5′ 7½ tall, a UK 18-20/US 16-18 in street clothes, have broad shoulders and hips, long (if chunky) legs and a decent behind and rack. I’m also short waisted.
