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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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