Have you tried something empire waisted?  You can use crinoline to control the puffiness so its not overwhelming.  Good luck!

Welcome to the Hive!

Maggie Sottero is always a safe bet.  About your rear, don’t worry about that, they will measure you and order a dress to fit it then you can have it altered to meet what you are looking for not. A good website to browse is weddingshoppeinc.com.  I bought a dress at their brick and mortar store but they have tons online to surf through.  If you see something you like then you can call around to local stores and see if they carry any of the ones you would like to try on.  Good luck, let us know which ones you are looking at.  Bees love dress polls.

Can’t wait to see what you plan for your big day!

How about this dress, which gives the illusion of a figure? I love this one.

Another thought…  To help create the illusion of a figure, you could look into wearing a man’s corset under the dress.  A friend of mine wears them all the time, and he always looks fabulous.

Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

What about a sheath dress?  From those I’ve seen, they might flatter your body type.

Corrina gown

This is “Corrina” from JCrew $495 US.

And another from JCrew for $299.99 US:

Gala gown

@tksjewelry:  I thought the model doesn’t have boobs really and not much hips and the dress makes it look like she does, plus the OP said the theme is Beauty and the Beast… and I thought this is perfect!

So what do you think OP? Am I on the right track?

Do you have any pictures? You’d probably get better responses if you could show us your figure. Sometimes people see their own bodies very differently from how the rest of the world perceives them.

Also, I haven’t seen any male brides on the bee. Hope to see your pictures someday!

this is a Maggie Sottero.A bit glam with a corset back. its ivory with silver overlay. I think sheath cut would look awesome on you from what you have described about your body type. Im 5’4. Welcome to the Hive!! 

And the sash under the bust is removable πŸ™‚

@Gavrilushka:  My only fear is the bustle. When I say my rear is the size of a watermelon, I don’t lie. It’s my milkshake that brings all the boys to the yard. πŸ˜‰

 

This made me lol. I am not bustling my dress and wearing it on my wrist all night. its a light sheath dress, so it would be easy to do. Also, is there any way you could bustle it underneath? Please keep us updated on your choices πŸ™‚

Have you considered going the custom route?  You may be able to get the perfect top that way, something with lots of beautiful beading and a gorgeous cut that will accent YOUR figure and won’t try to show off the boobs you don’t have.

What sort of neckline/sleeves are you thinking of?  Strapless, off-the-shoulder, sweetheart, straight, full sleeves…  And is January your actual wedding date?  If so, I assume you’re looking for something kind of summery, yes?
