@HereWeGo:  I’m not married yet, but I do have a trumpet style dress. It is probably a little tighter than it should be at the hips (I bought it used from a bride with the same measurements as me) so I *might* lose 5lbs between now and next year when I get married. I know that that will be the difference between it being too tight and being a little better. Right now, I can sit, but I kind of have to slide the dress up to do so (which I assume I’m not supposed to have to do). These are all prealterations photos btw. I won’t get those done until much closer to the wedding.

And this  is a photo of me sitting in it. They’re taken on different days, which is why I don’t fill out the dress as well in the sitting picture (this one is older and I bought my bra by the time I took the picture above).I think the only alterations I will get done is adding a bustle and maybe altering the neckline to make it a little more sweethearty. Anyways, I hope this helps.

@HereWeGo:  I am having this issue and had to book another fitting as looking at the photos I was not happy with how loose the dress looked. The seamstress kept telling me that its meant to be that way, but I dont believe her ;P

I am trying to upload a photo.. but it keeps asking for my password??

Mine’s not back yet, but it’s going to be pretty form-fitting:

My understanding is something’s going to be done at knee-level (where it flares) to take it in and make the flare more dramatic. It’s not as tight as it looks at my hips, the ruching was just very good to me.

 

@Bears-bub:  try logging out then back in, it worked for me.

@HereWeGo:  thank you! I fell in love with it because I don’t really have curves like that, it’s one big optical illusion but I like it haha
