I chose a natural-waist ballgown! My original dress was mermaid, but I felt like it accentuated my tummy too much and I was really self-conscious about it.

(I’m a size 12, with wide hips and a booty.)

i chose what i think is a trumpet gown. i think i fit the category of hourglass because my waist is definitely smaller than my hip!

I have an hourglass shape and I chose a ballgown with a natural waist. Here are some pictures of me at my fitting. I still have one more fitting to go. It does have a train, but I am showing it bustled.

I have an hourglass shape on a petite frame (34-25-36.5). My original dress which I wore for the ceremony was a mermaid, but I didn’t feel comfortable with how I looked in it. I later changed to an a-line with a crinoline added for fullness. Felt a lot better in this dress.

I really need to get some better pictures of my dress, these were taken at the end of a long stressful day…

I’m 100% pear, no doubt about it. These hips are some hips. I’ve gone for a natural waist, ballerina length 50s style frock!

 

And I really wouldn’t have picked it based on the website’s image I think its a dress that needs a shapely woman, it was seeing it in store and then on me that made me fall for it!

There is a little over 10 inches in difference between my hips and my waist, so I’m pretty sure that qualifies me for pear-shaped ๐Ÿ™‚ I wore an A-line gown with a sash. Loved it!

I would consider myself more pear shape and here’s the dress I picked

It’s got a higher waist so it really hides my hips

(mind you this is in store before alterations and it makes me look alot bigger on top b/c its big lol)

I am definately a pear shape.  This is me in the sample dress.  Mine hasn’t come in yet.

I am definitely a bottom-heavy hourglass..:) Haha, a very CURVY hourglass.

Anyway, here’s my top pic – Jenna by Maggie Sottero:

Here’s the first dress I chose (and bought!) though, it’s very complimentary for my body type but I just didn’t think it was special enough:

I’m very much a pear shape, (34-26-38) but I think my dress gave me a little more of an hourglass shape due to the ‘poof’ and that the skirt started right above my hips.

My dress was a little too big, so it wasn’t quite as tight around the chest as I would have liked, but it worked ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m definitely a pear shape – this is when we were introduced at our reception! My dress was more of a dropped waist type ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Here’s when I tried her on:
