    Usually when you “suck it in” your posture corrects. Your shoulders go back, your hips move a little, and you put your chest forward a bit. Looking at your pictures, it seems to me that’s what it is. If your stomach doesn’t pooch out, then spanx aren’t gonna fix it unless they cause you to correct your posture too.

    I agree with a pp. Your posture is exaggerating the lovely feminine curve.

    Practice standing up straight with your shoulders back a little further.

    To me, the VERY SLIGHT curve of your abdomen looks like a result of posture and/or a mild scoliosis. You look very slender, not at ALL pregnant. Try not to be too self-critical!

    i honestly think you look great. i feel the same way in my dress as it is super fitted in that area. im getting married in summer so i really dont want any extra layers. i think it always looks worse when you look down on yourself, however when others look front on they say they cannot see it on me. i know i will be self conscious though so i am doing crunches LOL.

    you are so slim though (whilst i could loose a few kg’s), i think you do look beautiful!! lovely dress too!

    I can see what you mean about having a bit of a “tummy,” especially in the picture taken from in front of you. Unfortunately you are relly skinny though, so I’m not sure if spanx would help! I guess it’s just the cut of the dress?

    You are incredibly thin and that dress looks amazing on you!

    I would KILL to have that figure and be able to wear a dress that form fitting and still look like a million bucks!

    I do not see any pooch or bump or ANYTHING, but if you are that worried about it, honestly, I would just say to stand up super straight.

    Spanx won’t help. You are too tiny for their smallest size to do anything. Plus, spanx works on fat, and you don’t have any. You just need to stand up straighter and stop being so critical of yourself. No one will think you look pregnant.

    @Willow1991:  I don’t think that you look pregnant in this dress.  However, as you already know from other comments I’ve made on some of your other posts, I don’t think any of the reception dresses you’ve proposed can begin to compare to your ceremony dress. Unless you’re extremely hot and truly feel compelled to change, I would just plan to enjoy wearing that gorgeous ball gown all evening! 🙂

    Dude.  You look amazing and definitely not pregnant.  I’m pretty sure that the average american women who are size 12’s are wanting to kill you right now for even suggesting that you have a stomach pooch at all!  Laughing  

    Note.  I do however agree with other posters about the importance of posture though.  I’ve got a figure hugging dress as well and i know that if i slouch it’ll ruin the entire line of it and make myself look like i have a 1st trimester food baby.  Stand up straight and have some conviction that you are FABULOUS!!!!!  Laughing

    @Willow1991:  Girl, you look fantastic!  Stand up straight, pull your shoulders back, press out your boobs, and wear that dress proudly!  Oh, and smile- you have a beautiful face Smile
