What did you eat the day before the picture was taken?  I am thin like you and certain foods give me more of a bump in the lower abdominal area right where yours is.  I avoid salt, dairy, and take some beano when I eat vegetables and that helps a lot.  My birth control is a diuretic and that helps cut down on any bloat in that area too.

I think if you pull the dress tighter in that area it will just focus attention there.  You could just watch out for irritating foods the week before the wedding or try some supertight spanx.

Beautiful! I agree with @zalonia about tightening in the hip area.  You look amazing in it!

gorgeous!  I would tighten the hip area just a bit.  I’m pretty thin, but I wore the Spanx half slip under my dress to avoid the stomach bloat issue.  It just feels like a slip, but it prevents any stomach sticking out from happening.

I have a similar body shape to your so i know exactly what you mean…i would try to tighten it there and if that doest work i would do the spanx half slip…and i agree with chicagobride that when i eat i get what I call a food baby in that lower area.

WOW! Gorgeous dress girl! First, no one will notice but you ๐Ÿ˜› Second, it doesn’t look like your corset style has boning, perhaps that’s what’s doing it. Have you figured out what you’re wearing under the dress? You could wear another corset underneath maybe? As for the fuller look, I just love the way it sits right now, but you could get a small trumpet crinoline for it if you wanted to, I don’t think you need it though ๐Ÿ™‚

This dress was my second choice and I tried it on with a mermaid petticoat and I think it made it look much nicer.  I would definitely recommend some extra tulle to give it some extra fullness.

Without anything underneath

 

 

With mermaid slip (excuse my ugly armpit/boob fat)

It looks to be like your not standing completly sideways.  I think your left hip is throwing your stomache at an oblique angle.  It is just an illusion that it looks big.  I think that dress is beautiful and i would wear it in a heartbeat.

Is that dress in alabaster?
