m new to posting on Weddingbee, but Ive been reading a bunch of posts and am comfortable enough with how genuinely nice and helpful you ladies all seem to be, that I feel that I myself can post!
I have a confession. I`m terrified of dress shopping. After all, this is a big deal right??! I’m supposed to look stunning and elegant on the big day, but I fear I’ll end up looking more like a troll.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what type of dress would be flattering on a plus, petite? okay.. so I’m 5 foot 1, and am size 16 – but I have a behind that should have its own moons and my tummy isn’t the trimmest either. Luckily I have a bit of an hourglass as my bust balances everything out. It’s a lot for my little frame though!!

I felt the same way! I’m 5’2″, normally a size 16 on account of my bazoombas. I was terrified of cupcaking but wedding dresses are specifically designed to make you look good. They should be, they cost a bazillion dollars. Anyway, they nip and tuck you in a very flattering way most of the time. Try on lots of silhouettes, you might be VERY surprised at what looks good on you. I ended up with a cupcake dress, the exact shape I was afraid of!

Welcome to the Bee! One great thing here, is that just about every topic has been discussed at some point, and they archive everything here. Check out this thread of all size 16 brides with LOTS of pics, and that will help you envision what the different dresses may look like on your size.I think you will agree, all of these ladies look amazing, and you will too!!

Thank you thank you thank you! I didn’t see that board, so that’s fantastic! Everyone looks so beautiful. It’s given me a bit of a boost to see that I could potentially look good in something and has given me a few ideas 😀

take a look at this thread:
you can take a look at different body types in everyday clothing and see how different wedding dresses look on them. maybe you’ll find a body type that is similar to yours.
