I love JH in that black and white strapless. Then again, she’s pretty much always super fashionable. I don’t think she knows how to dress herself poorly. 😉

Who were the doubters?
Skinny girls look silly in a mermaid or trumpet dres, IMO. It is made for the ladies with curves.

The girl in the first pic looks stunning in her dress. Glad to see that everyone is not a size 0. Although interestingly, the fashion experts and magazines all say that those sizes should never wear mermaid style dresses under any circumstances since they put all the focus on the bust and hips. However in that dress, I honestly didn’t see that that was an issue at all.

@ember: the first dress is jennifer hudson, i think she was from the 2nd american idol, she was like number 7 voted off and won an oscar for her role in dream girls… and i cannot believe that the industry doesn’t want those with curves to flaunt them… actually on some of the magazines that i saw they considered jennifer hudson chunky, really?!
@spaniel: the black and white one was definitely one of my all time favorite looks!! it was so clean and polished omg!
@mal: sorry to hear about your miscarriage ((HUGS)) i still have a poochie belly and my son is 8. i was on a bc that caused a lot of problems for me.
@monita: EVERYONE doubts it… especially sales people, they tend to push larger framed women towards the bigger less fabulous dresses… let’s just say whenever it’s my turn i will tell them what i want. and it ain’t an a-line 😀

Yay I love this post. I am wearing a trumpet gown also. They did wonders for that hourglass shape we all want to accentuate. Here is a pic of my gown. (Please ignore the fact that the dress is held up in front of me because it was a bridal size 4 or 6. Not meant for my size 12/14 body.

I am a curvy girl too – losing weight but still a size 18 in pants, a XL-L on top. While I am not going to get all sexy with the trumpet gown, I am certainly going to try everything under the sun on when I am dress shopping. Ultimately I want the romantic empire waist just because it suits my personality more. Big girls rock and my Fiance LOVES my curves – I am an hourglass shape too despite my size 🙂

I have the say that Jennifer Hudson looks amazing in that red dress!
