So, I had my really low-key bachelorette party this weekend. And, omg, NEXT weekend (not this one) I will be married!! *freaks out* But I wanted to share with the class – I totally got my first tattoo when I was out bacheloretting it up.
It’s of the Batman symbol on my lower back – ver’ important to the FI and I. I couldn’t keep it from him – he loves it. Now…though, I was looking at bachelorette pictures and I HATE my arms. Ungh. Too late now, I guess. I didn’t go up OR down any dress sizes since my first fitting for my wedding dress, so I guess that’s good?
Any word of advise because now I’m quietly freaking out thinking I’m going to look horribly chubby for my wedding. I’m a street size 8-10, my wedding dress is a…10, I think? Maggie Sottero Lana in red. Well, here’s a pic from my first fitting – the corset isn’t even pulled tightly. I just don’t want to look back on pictures and frown at myself, but I feel wonderful in my dress.
And, not to sound weird, but my father is Chinese so there are going to be a TON of guests from China there. And I don’t want them to think I’m too fat, especially this family friend of ours. His daughter is coming and she’s my age and from Shanghai, but she’s always been so typically thin and skinny and she’s very judgemental. I dunno.
Guess I should have thought about these things before. ::sigh:: Also, here’s my make-up for the day – look okay? See? I’m a chubbers.

your arms arnt fat at all!! however if you have a look at how the celebs stand with their arms on their hips it gives the arms a more tonned look… but you might get tired of tanding tht way all the time lol! you look great in your dress!

This is downright silly. You are gorgeous and not one person on here is going to tell you that your arms are fat when they are not. I’m also a little offended at the word chubbers as my arms are bigger than yours.

@Lassroyale: You look fine! Just be confident and brush off anything anyone says. I’m Chinese, so I know they can be very blunt also, they will say things like..”oh my goodness, you’re so skinny, doesnt your man make enough to feed you?” or “wow, you’re chubby, what have you been eating”… “you’re so tall”, “your hair is sooo long”… any observation they can make and nothing is off limits. I dont even think they really think about what they say or really mean anything by it and just blurt out the first thing that comes to mind.

You’re beautiful! Truly, there is NOTHING wrong with your arms. I had a similar experience at my second fitting, except it was my back. My seamstress convinced me that my dress fit perfectly and I looked wonderful in it. Maybe talking to your mom or a close friend would help? Also, if you’re really concerned, by honest and open with your photographer so that she can try to avoid angles that make you uncomfortable. Remember though, you see your “imperfections” in a way that no one else does. We are our own worst critics, of course. And just remember your husband loves you just as you are! (these are things I’m telling myself, and I think they’re working…)

You risk the dress not fitting this late in the game if you lose weight, and you cant “tone” IE build muscle to make a difference in less than two weeks.
You can however feel good about yourself because you are gorgeous and if you eat healthy and exercise you will know you are being healthy which is good for you inside and out. Plus, exercise creates endorphins which will help your body image.
