I have the short Sophia in tricotine.  My hips and thighs are not my big problem area, but I don’t think it’s a huge problem.  Depending on how I’m feeling, i frequently wear Spanx or something like that.  If you’re open to that, then you shouldn’t have a problem.  Either way, I’d encourage you to order them and see what you think.  Their return policy is pretty generous–just wait for a free shipping promotion.

I’m having my girls wear silk tricotine dresses, any style they want. I tried on my twin sister’s (MOH) to get a feel for it. Its a very light fabric, very summery. But I was a le uncomfortable with how it clung to my stomach…I would say order it and return it if you need to. ErinMarguerite is right-they have an awesome return policy!!

I tried a bunch of dresses this weekend at J.Crew and actually found the tricotine to be the most flattering for me. After trying about 10 different styles, I decided that Goddess is the one!  The pictures online don’t even do it justice, it is stunning in such a simple way once it’s on. 

Good luck.

I’m wearing the Sophia long, and I decided to wear spanx underneath. I like that the fabric is light and thin, I think it makes the dress very sleek.  But the material does show off lumps, bumps and your belly button. With spanx or something else underneath, it’s fine.

I tried on the Sophie, and discoverd that I do indeed have cellulite in my butt….I never knew!  I blogged about it here.  I’m sure some good undergarments would help, though.

@MsDownwardDog: Which type of Spanx? I’m wearing the Gracie and can’t decide!
