A friend of mine wore one.  Even though she is short, she looked fabulous.

(Short gals have to be wary because this silhouette makes you look extra curvey.)

My Girlfriend has narrow shoulders and slim arms and torso. 

With my wide shoulders I could never wear one.


My friend’s now-DH could hardly stop checking her out during the ceremony.  Front and back. 

Her focus was on her FH’s fac, the rabbi, and the ceremony. 

The videos busted the groom big time on being focused on the bride’s bod!

I am wearing a trumpet gown for my wedding, it still needs alterations because its very loose on the hips and waist, but I have to say my hips look very big! After having my daughter and some exercise if 1 part of my body became thinner it was my hips, and I like that because it was always my problem area, but my dress make them look different… It might be a silly obsession, I have to wait for the alterations. 🙂

I’m wearing a mermaid gown-I completely didn’t think that I could because I’m pretty hip-py, but when I put it on I found it to be really flattering!  It’s very comfortable for me…definitely give a few a shot when you go to try on!  You may be very pleasantly surprised as well!  🙂

Try some on and see what you think….I did, and I looked ridiculous. Like Marilyn Monroe on steroids (if steroids empahsized curves). I am also pretty tall (5’9”) so I think curves are exaggerated even more. But you never know until you try one on! Bring some friends you trust with you, haha I had my Maid/Matron of Honor with me and she was brutally honest thank goodness…
