I was hoping to hear from brides who have tried on or chose J.Crew wedding dresses, especially the ones made of silk tricotine. I really like the Goddess and Gracie styles, but I’m worried that the material might cling to my hips and thighs in a really unpleasant way – any experiences with this?

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.

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!
