I bought (paid for half of it the rest is due at first fitting for alterations) the casablanca 1985. After looking at a picture my sister took of me I am having major regrets. The store keeps saying after it is altered it will look better, but I am afraid my butt is too flat and I have no hips for the dress. I don’t know what to do… I don’t know if it’s worth getting a different dress and losing 500 some dollars.

@kteach: You’re crazy! Go for the first fitting and I bet you will feel a million times better. First, the mermaid/trumpet look is better for girls who DON’T have large hips because it accentuates your hips and makes them look bigger, so that nagging feeling you have that your hips are too small or butt too flat are wrong! I noticed that the A-lines tend to “flatten” the butt the most anyway. The dress is beautiful and looks great on you and will look even better after the fitting, I’m sure. Don’t stress!

If you are still looking for something to pop your hips after the fitting (if you keep going with the dress) what about a sash in a color? The emphasis on your waist might make your hips look fuller underneath. I can’t tell how your the waist beading works on your dress, so sorry if my suggestion’s not feasible.

If you’re worried about a flat butt, get some padded underwear! There is a great site http://www.lovemybubbles.com and they have amazing products. My friend wore some at her wedding and her butt looked amazing! I plan to do the same for my wedding next June and I already bought a pair!

@kteach: I love that dress! And honestly, I had the worst dress regret when I tried on my dress and it did not fit. Once it was altered perfectly, I fell back in love with it. Wait for the alterations – they will do wonders and it will be stunning!

Well in the picture they already clipped the dress in the back. I can’t imagine it looking much different with the alterations… I may have to resort to padded underwear. I just hope I can find realistic looking/feeling ones.

@kteach: lady, you look beautiful in that dress. Take a step back, deep breath, and focus on your beauty and not these (no offense) but exagerated flaws.
You look great !

You butt looks great in the picture. Just do some butt exercises you have another 8 months to go but seriously think you look pretty good in the dress.

It will be fine- the clips don’t do nearly what alterations will

That dress looks beautiful on you, and it will look even moreso when it’s fitted properly. You have a beautiful figure and the dress shows it off!

The dress looks great!! When it’s tighter you’ll see lots of curves. I did and I had a fit n flare like that.

You look GREAT!!!!!
I think we all a little dress regret. I think this happens because we have to purchase our dresses so dang early. There is so much time to obsess over them. I had some major regret while I was waiting for my dress to arrive. I kept looking at the pictures and finding things I didn’t like. Then my dress came & I was convinced it was yellow, because I ordered it in ivory but only tried it on in white. I had my first fitting and fell back in love even though the pictures I took looked pretty horrible, because I was sick & my dress was SO wrinkled, & I hated the way it looked when it was bustled. (And It didn’t look yellow at all.)
I think I finally found peace during my last fitting, even though I hooked my bra too tight and had some not so pretty back fat going on. But it looked so much better once it was steamed! The whole process of buying, altering, and then finally getting to wear your wedding dress is so emotional. I find that when I am feeling nervous about getting married in general, I start to obsess about the details. Try not to drive yourself too crazy and don’t make any rash decisions. At least wait until your first fitting and if you still don’t like it, then maybe look for something else.
