Hi all..just wondering for anybody who has bought a Pronovias dress or even tried them on i have a little question...On the website they all look very tight fitting on the models im just wonder would you have to be very slim to wear these gowns because i have fallen in love with a couple of them. I am a size 16 but im fairly toned as i go to the gym most days but im by no means a skinny girl. Any feed back would be brilliant..thanks :wv

haven't tried one on but was in a shop with similar dresses, the material is gathered across the waist and hips, anyway the lady in shop said they're fantastic cause they hide every bump, she had someone in that had just had kid and felt fantastic in the dress style. good luck. i'm hoping to try them on soon (size12... more likely 14) - either destafford on exchequer st in town or in bcouture in arklow, wicklow. good luck! http://www.bcouture.ie/

good luck - my mum keeps at me to lose weight, but i'm beign realistic, i't snot gonna happen!!! h2b happy the way i am and would prob be disappointed if i did lose it as i tend too lose the bust when i'm thinner!!!

Bridetobee, The pronovias dresses are so well made they'l disguise any lumps n bumps! I have large hips and couldn't believe how flattering the dresses were on me. Do try them on and see. Let us know you you get on Pops *)
