Pick Up Dress Style

Hey Ladies,


I really wanted to get a pick up dress. Then I saw a plus size bride with one on, and I felt like it wasn't flattering for her. Maybe it was the style of the pick up dress, but she looked like the Michelin Tire Man (white puffs everywhere).


Hey Ladies I really photo 1440925-1


Did/Does anyone else feel this way? Did anyone use a pick up dress. Please share photos. I still really love the pick up dress look. I guess I just have to find the right one. Any good brand suggestions?

I have a pick up dress!


I have a pick photo 1449774-1 I have a pick photo 1449774-2


The bodice didn't fit right because it was like 4 sizes too small but when they pulled it tight so I would see how it would fit it looked sooooo good!

Size 18 pick up photo 1450045-1


Size 18 pick-up skirt. I think the way the bodice and neckline sit on your body make all the difference.

lol...OMG...kids say the darnedest things, that's why they aren't invited!! LOL.


BlissfulKate , your dress is FABULOUS!! It's what I'm looking for. Where is it from? I think you are right, if the neckline and bodice are right, then it looks great.


RoRoless3sSL- I love the ruching on your dress, and it is equally FAB!!


Your pics should be on a magazine covers!!

I was seriously considering buying this pick up dress:


I was seriously considering photo 1454623-1


THEN.... I found this dress!


I was seriously considering photo 1454623-2


I think it is SOOOO much more flattering on me and did not add the bulk that the pick up dress above added to me. I was also so glad that I ended up with a dress with straps since the girls are a DD+. I did not have to tug at my dress all day in order to keep it up.

I bought my dress from David's Bridal. I was able to try it on in store - size 18 and had no alterations! I have seen it on eBay for sale as a pre-owned, so check there if you aren't against pre-worn gowns. It was $350 new and the sash was another $50 (which was ridiculous, but oh well...). I also got the bolero there as well.

I agree pickups can make a girl look fluffier than usual. I dislike pick ups period I guess
