@Skoochabelle: Getting a corset back works wonders…In my dress I look so much slimmer…By the way Maggie Sottero/Midgley dress have great boning for shaping the body. But, I have been working on shedding some pounds.
I forgot to tell you my dress was $499 on sale and off the rack…It is possible to find a great dress under $1000. My Sottero & Midgley is from the 2008 line. So it was a rare find since the dress is discontinued. I believe it was originally in the 1k.
I wear a size 12 usually, my gown is a size 16. It’s Oleg Cassini and it has a zipper in the back.
Hello, helpful Bees! First day of shopping this past weekend and I may have a winner with the third dress I tried on… Please ignore the “I’m a little teapot” pose (I was covering the flower on my hip, which I would remove and use the sparkly belt instead). I’m also not wearing makeup and, thanks to a three-hour wait at Motor Vehicles that morning, my hair isn’t washed and blown out. (Grr.) Still want to shop a little more, would like to try some V-neck styles with straps, but so far I’m loving this one (Paloma Blanca 4165). And yeah… dress shopping is pretty fun (!) once you get past standing around in underwear and a strapless bra in front of the saleslady and your mom! haha
Im a street size 8-10, some 12s depending..My dress is a size 12, maggie corset back.It retails around 1500..i got it for the awesome price odf $300!!! This is before alterations as i have a year to go!
Im a street size 12 and my dress was a size 12…i think it should have been a 14 though…. oh well..to late now. (boobies are 32DD)
Im a street size 12/14! 5’5 and 36 D chest. My dress is a ballgown Paloma Blanca 4203 size 14 (pictured) and right at the 2000.00 mark. I didnt think I would want the kind of waist this dress has but when I tried it on, it was so flattering! I knew I definitely wanted empire waist style beeding.
Okay Im tired and clearly need to stop posting on the bee haha! Did not notice this thread is 9 months old but still it was great to see other bees in their great dresses as a size 12, 14 and 16 🙂
I am a street size 12/14 and my dress is a 16 zip up. The white is the 16 and fit like a glove. I chose the blue but the sample was an 18. Excuse the weird look on my face, I hate getting my picture taken.
I just did my first try ons at David’s Bridal just to get an idea of shape/size, and I was surprised tht I didn’t like the flt-and-flare more actually! I think that accuntating my waist is definitely best. Here are some of the ones I tried on (the last is my fav).
Btw I’m a street size 12/14, 5′ 5″, 180 ish, 36DD, etc
Dunno why they’re sideways but too lazy to fix…
