Hi bees, I haven’t posted much and I only just started wedding dress shopping. I was originally reluctant to try on anything fit and flare styled because of my nicely sized child bearing hips. Then, I tried on dresses and in person felt that fit and flare dresses were my best option. Looking at pictures of my top pick from the day, though, I am beginning to doubt that. So, please, tell me honestly- Am i too hippy to wear a fit and flare style? (PS it would be modified to a sweetheart neckline)

I think you look lovely in this gown; however, in your comments, you come across as not really being sure. I suggest, since you still have time, to go and look at more gowns. You can always come back to this one, if it keeps haunting you.

I think it creates a nice silhouette. You are probably being more critical of yourself than anyone else would ever be. I like it!

I said other – I actually think it looks great and will look amazing with an a-line. But it does defintiely draw attention to the hips. Personally, looking at you (or headless!you at least 😉 ) I think it looks pretty awesome (curvy in all the right ways!), but if it’s a part of you that you are insecure about you may feel more comfortable in something else.
I totally thought from your subject line that it was going to be some sort of flowie flower child sixties dress, btw.

I also just wanted to say that you are probably having doubts because you are not used to wearing clothing that is so form fitting.

Rock them curves! (Unless, of course, you don’t feel comfortable).

I think it looks really nice, but I do think it draws some attention to your hips. Its the ruching in the fabric, the diagonals are leading you out, making your hips look bigger. I think fit and flare could work for you, but this particular style accents it a little more than most. You should just try on every fit and flare you can find! You never know 🙂

OP: I am also pear shaped and told I am not “supposed” to wear mermaid, trumpet, or fit and flare styles. But haven’t you heard? Hips are in!! Hahaha!! You go girl!
