1)  I see no paunch!

2)  I love your dress, of course — another Sue Wong?  Perfect!!  Love the beading, the trim under the bustline, and the way the bodice transitions into the ruffles on the bottom.

Oh my gosh.  I see NO paunch.  And I’m not using “Frenemy” tactics.  You are as flat as a board!  

What an workout do you do?  🙂

That’s not a paunch, it’s the the type of undies you have on 😛

This is, in the words of Chris Traeger, lit’rally the most awesome dress I have ever seen.  And you look absolutely stunning in it.  I completely agree with what @jijitattoo said.  When the day’s done, it doesn’t matter what your mom thinks, which was hard for me to come to terms with.  I know how important the mom opinion is, and it can be absolutely crushing if she doesn’t agree with you 100%.  But she will 100% support your feelings even if she doesn’t mesh with the style or fit of the dress.  And tell her not to worry — once you add a crinoline and the right undergarments, any minor imperfections she sees will melt away.  That’s why they make those special undies.  Or, if she’s worried about photos — if this camera didn’t catch any paunch, there’s no way in heck your photographer will either!  This will make for some great wedding shots.

@jigga143:  LOL I know, right? I still have that stupid pooch from my 1st c-section, and I’m gonna end up having it even more so, as I’m having another one early September! I’m spanks’in everything, with a long line bra LOL…

 

OP, I think you look fantastic. I do see where the dress has a shade change, but honestly if you had a long line bra on, I think that’s the issue. Because I’ve had on good bras, and cheap bras, and they ALL leave that wierd pooch b/c it’s made to pull in your girls and waist. So your abdomen sticks out. However, I think the dress is wonderful. It’s different, form fitting, and VERY FUN looking!!!
