    Have you tried on any dresses yet?  Or do you have your dress? I kind of have that a little bit so I know what you’re talking about.  I only would ever see it naked or if I’m wearing a skin tight dress with thin material.

    I bought a mermaid-type dress and honestly I couldn’t notice mine at all.  The styles I really liked had some diaganol ruching going on…and really, they pretty much held me in and gave me shape.  They also had corset backs, so that can help to suck you in.

    But I don’t know very much about shapewear Frown  But I’ve seen a lot of people talk about Spanx being great…and I know they have hip/thigh shapers!

    Edit: I’m somewhat similar in size to you, I’m a little over 5’11”  I think I measured about 36/28/39, but I’m around 157.  So I can see why you say you’re carrying it in your booty!  It’s mostly my upper thighs that stick out though!

    Don’t know what to tell you for shapewear, but I have a similar problem with my shape. It’s like I have two sets of hips!

    @MissFireFlower:  Well working out will give you more confidence no matter what!  But if you haven’t bought your dress yet, I would try looking for some of those details if you like them.  I think the ruching is pretty slimming!  I never planned to by a mermaid style dress either because I tend to be self conscious about my stomach and hips.
