You look beautiful. There’s no paunch. I think the difference in appearance is more about the Spanx encouraging good posture than about it “flattening” your stomach, to be honest!

I love it! I think you look tall and slender, and as someone who is a Poster Child for Pear shaped, I would love that! 🙂

Omg when i read the title i was expecting to see a abdominal bubble.  Your flat as a board! you look amazing in it!  If your really concerned like the other girls mentioned get a pair of spanx.  Honestly I don’t think you need it though.

@lealorali:  You look beautiful and perfect. If you want to work out for your own peace of mind, then let it be because that’s what YOU want to do. I don’t see no damn spare tire. Don’t be so hard on yourself.

My mother did the same thing to me. I had anxiety while dress shopping because I knew she’d remind me of how “gordita” I am and that we all (my sister’s included) need to work out for my wedding. I don’t disagree I need to be a bit more fit but it’s not what you want to hear from your mother. It doesn’t feel like constructive criticism. I am a random stranger and would just tell you flat out. So I will tell you truthfully that you look stunning. Wear that dress with confidence and remember one thing the day your mother sees you in that veil, dress and with that smile on your face…..she’ll think you’re beautiful and pefect.  She won’t even remember her initial comments because her daughter will be beaming with happiness. 

And the best advice I have ever heard regarding self-image was from “the situation” um yes quoting Jersey Shore (please dont’ judge) but it’s SO true…”When you look good, you feel good and when you feel good, you get good results”  With that said, feel good about yourself, no one can make you feel good about yourself than YOU. So forget everyone else, ask yourself “do I look/feel beautiful?”  If you know the answer you don’t really need anyone else to reassure you. 

Sorry for the rant. Too much vino.

I think you look great and don’t see any pooch/pouch/paunch! I honestly dont even see a difference with the spanx haha. If you’re still paranoid, check out the link below, it goes over an exercise that is good for the lower belly pooch that a lot of skinny girls seem to have.

@lealorali:  Spanx is great!  You really didn’t need it in the first place, but I know you want to look/feel your best on your big day.  Beautiful!

I have literally stared at your pictures for 5+ minutes looking for said ‘paunch’ but cannot find it anywhere.  I think that dress looks so good on you!!
