What? You look beautiful! I honestly didn’t even notice your arms – not even after you pointed out that you disliked them! I did notice your breasts though. Wow, girl, do you know how many women pay plastic surgeons serious money to look like you? And how much money most women I know (myself included) spend on padded bras? Mother Nature gave you a present – just smile and say thank you! 🙂 

Congratulations on your weight loss too, that’s quite an achievement!

You DO look beautiful but I will answer honestly what I would do: a light tan I agree would work wonders…I feel that if you had some pretty little straps on the dress it might hold you in a little better…I also have a large bust and I know I would worry about falling out if it were me…even if they dont fall the appearance is that they could fall out any minute….I would totally have some thin maybe crystal type straps added to just hold the top of the dress in a little…I think it would look just as lovely and probably improve your look…your man will love it regardless though;)

I think you look so happy & sweet in your photos!

The only think I would change would be the hair. As pp’s posters have suggested, I think something softer would work better. Right now it sort of gives this graphical illusion of four spheres – your breasts, your head and then the ball of hair on top. I would go for something softer with a low set bun, I think that would provide better balance to your overall look.

The good news is that your arms and boobs look great! Try holding your bouquet a little lower and avoid pressing your arms into your sides at all when you’re in profile. This will help make them look thinner.


I think that your boobs being pushed up so high is making you think that you have more fat left than you do. The reason I picked a dress with straps was so that the side boob area that you see in you pictures is covered up, because I knew I would feel the same way. You can see in my picture below that the straps are placed to cover the boob overflow:

I know that’s not helpful to you right now, I just thought it might be something to think about if you still feel the same way about that in the future.

@Miss_Narrows:  You are GORGEOUS. The problem is in your head, not in your appearance or the photos! I think you really need to focus on adjusting your thinking on this topic, because you look AMAZING in those pics. You have a beautiful body and a fantastic smile. For real.

@Miss_Narrows:  Aww I am so sad you feel that way cause I think you look gorgeous! I think it’s the whole way society has us feeling that we have to be ultra thin to look good in anything…which is a pack of mess! We are women with all different bodies and shapes and should embrace them all! I think I am going to start a post on this very fact!

You are beautiful, and I’ll jump on the boobie boat too, I wish I had boobs like that! I still don’t see the issue you have with your arms 🙂

(not to threadjack.. but…)

You look absolutely stunning. And I’d kill for any sort of boobs whatsoever; I had giant cups sewn into my gown just to hold it up! 🙂 

I agree with another commenter…. I think the hairstyle isn’t helping you. Your face, your skin, your SHAPE is incredible! Make sure to accentuate all of that! A friend of mine had trouble with her top staying up; her bustier beneath the dress was shoving the “girls” up so much that the strapless dress was scrunching at the waist, and it was also cutting into her so much that it gave her back/arm flab. She got the sticky kind to just go in the front and it made a HUGE difference (as in: took away any signs of arm fat, back fat, etc). 

That posture photo is a GODSEND! It will change everything about your photos, too! 

Regardless, if you do nothing differently, know this: your husband will think you look beyond stunning. Congratulations, beautiful!

You look gorgeous! You are seriously so lucky to be so beaitiful. I think if you implement a new posture for picture takimg you’d lile your pics a little more…let your photog know about how you don’t want to look (slumped shoulders) so they can guide you during pics.
