Any way for you to sell this dress and order one from Jcrew or similar online store?  They might be returnable so if you don’t like it you can return it?

Aw honey!! {{{HUGS!!!}}}  I had the same thing happen, so I went on ebay and got a hell of a deal on a dress.  When I tried it on I LOVED IT, and I used the money I put down on the other dress to buy a veil and tailoring services.

So sorry, but maybe you’ll end up loving it in pictures?  That happened to my SIL.  She hated her dress, but then she saw herself on camera and she fell in love with it.

Hmmmm, is the problem maybe that with the dropped waist it looks like your torso is too short?  Or that you are not used to looking "curvy"?  I actually really like it on you; I think you look great.  But since you don’t feel comfortable with it…  I would try it without the slimming garments.  That might help.  I don’t really have any other suggestions, I guess.  It is a really beautiful dress, and I think you look great it in.

ohhh…honey…I think it’s beautiful on you. I seriously didn’t notice your hips because I was too busy being jealous of your gorgeus tiny arms & shoulders.

I see nothing wrong with that dress.  I’d love to have that dress (and that body).  Be proud of how beautiful you look!

I think it looks great on you. Are you just not use to seeing your curves that defined because in those photos all I see are a very nice hour glass shape, not huge hips!

I agree, I actually think it is lovely!

Does your waist slimmer end at or just below your waist, above the fullest part of your hips?  If so, that may definitely be the problem.  Go without, or look for some sort of undergarment that extends to a lower point along your hip line, preferably something that does not have stretchy sides, because that will help smooth the line more, I think.

Good luck, and congratulations!!

Wow!  I think you look fantastic!  I love that dress!  And I think you look stunning it but it’s all about how YOU feel in it.  

I also have a pear shape with a well-defined waist and it was amazing how the right bra could take me from looking bottom heavy to balanced and curvy!

I think that dress looks fantastic on you, I’m definitely one for showing off curves. I’m sorry you don’t love it, but believe me, you look great.
