Honestly… I want hips/curves SO bad. It always baffles me when people complain about/put down wide hips – to me that is the IDEAL, PERFECT SHAPE! Your proportions sound GORGEOUS and I would totally wanna show off my hot hourglass bod if I were you. 🙂 Your coworkers are crazy!
I think you need to just go try that style of dress on and go from there. Who cares what people say BEFORE u even try stuff on?
I’m confused though…you only want people to tell you that you WILL look good in things? I would want honesty from people. I guess not everybody can handle constructive criticism especially if isnt given in the right manner but still…
If you have the type of body that you are describing than you should honestly have no problem with any dress or style. I would also suggest trying a fit and flare to show off your curves…
Short of seeing a picture I would say you’re not stocky. I think someone with curves like you could rock a dress like that. You’ll see when you try it on!
I can’t believe your co-worker had the nerve to say those things out loud.
Thanks for the humor and support <3
@toelopeornottoelope: It’s more of a pear than a hourglass…thanks!
@gelaine22: The plan is to go dress shopping in 2 weeks, the issue (for me) is that I don’t have anyone to go with. I think it would be different if these were friends- if close friends told me the same thing I could probably laugh it off and not feel insulted.
@gelaine22: Thanks and they are not supermodels
@MUAbride2be: That’s the style I want, fitted until it hits the top of my hips then bamn Sofia Vegara
that dress doesn’t look super fitted to me, and honestly, sometimes when something is slightly fitted it actually can be more flattering. I dont think a ball gown makes someone look smaller lol. I love your choice!
The dress is BEAUTIFUL! The way I see it, is it’s your day, and you should wear whatever makes you feel beautiful. I WISH I was 150 lbs. Haha even being a larger woman, I would love to one day do a vow renewal with a more fitted dress cause I have alerady worn the full style dress. Do what makes you happy and don’t worry about pleasing anyone else 🙂
I also thought that a ballroom loose fitting dress would make me look heavier.
If you post a picture of yourself it will be a lot easier to suggest what styles will look good. It’s really hard to tell with just measurements. I’m sure your friends were just trying to help. Most people don’t think of the most tactful ways to say something before they blurt it out.
It’s impossible to guess without seeing a picture, but generally, the more fitted dresses look best on girls with straighter, less curvy bodies, but every body is different and every woman has a different vision for what she wants to look like in her dress. It’s not about weight, though, it’s about proportions. If you are very hour-glass, a fitted dress will make you look even more hour-glass and at some point, a woman can look disproportionate because of that. I don’t know if you would, though, because I don’t know what you look like.
You are not too heavy for a fitted dress!
I have a similar waist/hip ratio. Rock your curves!
