@tygrrlily - Yeah I love this dress. I also have bigger hips and I was hoping to hide them somewhat or at least not emphasize them so much. I was hoping the little flower on that dress would camouflage the hips somehow. I am glad to hear that the dress doesn't look as flattering on tall and slim hahaha missus in the picture looks like a size -0. I am usually a size 10 in normal clothes. I have to try this dress on. Hopefully it flatters. Fingers crossed but if not I am sure to find something lace that would flatter.
Trying the attachment again.
I found ruching really flattering or some type of gathering on the skirt. My dress has BOTH haha so maybe that's why it helps. I'm not sure your budget, but check out Provonias, Enzoani (including Blue and Beautiful lines) and Martina Liana/ Essence - they all had beautiful lace dresses! The one I got is lace as well (a Monique Lhuilier sample!)
Haha, this is what I'm saying, why do people do this??
The dress is beautiful, try it on for sure!
I actually have to say (and I haven't said this out loud to anyone yet) that I wish I hadn't gone shopping with my friend for the second round, I ended up bying a dress that wasn't my fav because she said the one I ended up buying looked better on me. Great input, but at the end of the day, I want to wear a dress that I love, not one that everyone else loves. I like my dress, it was a close second, but I still think about the other one... it makes me feel like I'm cheating on the dress I bought, lol.
Yes this happened to me too! I stuck w/ my gut fortunately and got the dress I couldn't stop thinking about. One of my friends and my sister kept pushing me toward another saying I looked better in it. My best friend reminded me though that at the end of the day, I had to choose the dress that made me feel best and most beautiful. I'm very glad i listened to her!
