My dress kinda took away from my curves in the end somehow. Alterations did that and it is probably the only thing I miss about my dress pre-alterations. It was origionally a sample size 12 with a zipper back that we altered to a corset back to fit my 14 body. Otherwise, here she is!!!

From our Day After shoot:

 

And because I just can’t get enough of the back of it…

 
Oh, and because the bustle that manages to pull up all 9 feet of that train just looks to darn good…

I’m a street size 12 and I was nervous about the dress shopping experience, but it was lots of fun…there was lots to try on… you’ll have a great time.

@Skoochabelle: I went to Kohls and bought this lingerie thing that just went around my belly (starts under my boobs and stops at the panty line) like a corset, only $25 It worked really great for me, but dont get the strechy kind, get the one with the hook and eyes ๐Ÿ™‚ As for arms, i wished i would have hit the gym a little more before the wedding but oh well, i think i was the only one to notice. Wall push ups are something you can do, it will help, if you do it a couple times a day (once right when you get up and at least one more time during the day, 15-30 reps each time)

i’m 5’8″, 162lbs and am a street 12 mostly due to my huge hips and butt.  Just tried my dress again yesterday and it was big ๐Ÿ™‚  hoping to lose 12 more pounds by February when fittings start.

This is my dress when I decided to buy it.  I don’t have a picture of it fitted, YET!  I’m a size 12 but the dress we ordered is a 14.
