    I think its a very unique and pretty dress.  I dont think its lacking in detail.  I see what you mean by the possibility of making your hips look wide by where the bodice cuts, but at least from the back you dont look wide at all and look proportional.  Id just wait for the dress to come and see, its hard to tell without seeing the front on you.

    It’s gorgeous. Love your dress! It doesn’t make you look wide at all.

    I think it’s a lovely dress, and that it has just enough detail, but that’s just my opinion. It definitely doesn’t make your hips look wide at all, in fact, from what I can tell you really have the kind of figure that can handle that sort of cut/hip detail really well.

    It’s gorgeous! I generally dont like dropped waist gowns (mostly because they look awful on me!) but this dress looks fabulous on you! I think it looks better on your figure than it does on the model!

    Well, it looks awesome from the back. Not sure what wouldn’t be awesome from the front.

    I think it cinches your waist in and gives you a great hourglass figure! Rock it! Not everyone can. πŸ™‚

    I actually like this dress a lot, the bolero goes, either way though-maybe more about how you feel in it and where your ceremony will be etc. I dont see any widening in the hips? I know we can sometimes be our own worst critic and see things that others absolutely dont see things that arent even there, so make sure you take a pic and look from the front objectively, but it’s ultimately about how you feel in the dress, if you’re going to be eyeing your waist all night-may not be worth it, but if you can look at yourself in the mirror and feel like a bride-then go with it! πŸ™‚ so pretty!
