    It looks great from the back but from the front you look very boxy and heavy in the hips and your curves aren't well defined. Are there other styles you are considering?

    I think it's very flattering, and I also think it's kinda rude she said that about your wedding dress

    You look great in that dress! Mermaid/fit and flare dresses are made to accentuate natural curves. Rock that gorgeous dress!

    My thoughts are...... uhhhh yeahhh fuckin get it. Tf. U look freakin good. Don't let anyone talk you down about the dress you want. Who cares what that one bridesmaid thinks. It's what u think, and how uuuuuu feel.

    I'm chunky and I ended up getting a fit and flare and tbh I think I look pretty damn good in my dress. Idc who thinks otherwise
