i personally would love a short board. I often feel out of place and would like to see posts about situations/photos/encouragment about being a short bride.

I think there is a board for pretty much everything. I am hispanic and I am in no way offended by the “latino” board.

well technically there IS an african american board, but i know what you mean about the full-figured thing.

i say it all the time about SYTTD big bliss.

why are those brides seperated from the others? it’s not ok.

I think the full figured board was created because users asked for it.

i sort of agree with you and I def understand what you are saying. as a plus sized gal I am so sick of being seperated because I wear a size 16. It is very annoying. But i guess it is something i am just getting used to….

Personally I like the full figured category, it helps me as a plus size bride to know what other plus size brides have to say. I see nothing wrong with it

I get what you’re saying. Another thing that annoys me: I’m slender, and get called “too skinny” all the time. It’s honestly offensive, because being “too” anything is offensive! I would never say someone is too fat, but I’m too skinny? It makes a girl self-concious!

The full figured board exists because people asked for it, and because there was enough posts on the topic that it merited a separate board. I think there are some issues that are specific to plus size brides (like not being able to fit into samples, where to buy undergarments, etc). People seem to enjoy and use the board. 🙂

@MrsFuzzyFace: i agree with you.  every time i see “full figured” on here it leaves a bit of a bad taste in my mouth.  it’s like a constant reminder i’m overweight and am labeled as such.
