Yeah, you look fab and, probably against what you believe, slim and sexy looking. You have a ladies figure! πŸ™‚ (FYI I have the same waist as you but my hips are nearly 46. I am like a cartoon but STILL feel ladies with a generous undercarriage should rock it. Sometimes I do look at my bum and go ‘seriously! Is that all mine?!’).

 

I would say your figure is perfect and proportionate and I’m sure your hubby will love you in this dress/ a style similar on your big day. Does he like your hips/bum? If so he will be very happy with you in this dress πŸ™‚

You are soooo not a pear (I am one!! I wear US size 4 on the top and size 8 on the bottom). You have nothing to be self-conscious with hips-wise, but if you don’t feel 100% comfortable, wearing statement earrings or a statement necklace will help. Things that draw the eyes up will even out your shape πŸ™‚

Your dress is lovely btw πŸ™‚

From one pear to another I think your hips would look much better in a natural waist dress. I’m thinking:

You’re honestly only slightly pear-shaped, and I think the dress looks fine. But if you’re feeling self-conscious about it, you may not be as confident as you can be on your big day.

Have you thought about adding cap sleeves? They might help in balancing out the shape of the skirt and making your waist and hips look smaller – it would also have the effect of drawing the eye up and towards your face – like in this dress:

I also think changing the neckline to a sweetheart or slight sweetheart would help, as it would draw attention more to your bust.

I think it looks amazing. Your waist is so tiny!
