FI may be a leg guy, but most of all he is a ZebraPrintMe  guy.

We all have days when we are down on ourselves. Don’t dwell on it for too long.

@ZebraPrintMe:  Your FI loves you regardless of the negative body image you have of yourself.  Like PP stated, everyone has days they don’t like what they see in the mirror, regardless of shape or size. I’m sure you will look lovely on your city date:) We are always our own worst critic. If you like, try hitting the gym and maybe that will increase your self confidence? I love going on the treadmill- I really feel that “runner’s high” and I enjoy the time to myself with my music blasting:)

@ZebraPrintMe:  I usually feel this way after going shopping, too, and after about an hour of crying and complaining (he likes to let me vent but not over do it) he’ll talk some sense into me and then I’ll (eventually) be right as rain.  I’m not even going to pretend like I don’t mope around because I can’t fit into or find a dress that I look great in.  However, I’d try going to a Lane Bryant.  I needed a summer dress and just happened to find a hi-low (something I’ve really been wanting) in the perfect pastel colors like I love AND in clearance.  I’m a 22/24 top and a 26/28 on the bottom so finding a dress to fit my size differences is difficult.  I just go by the bottom size so it fits my hips and then hope that the top isn’t too big and fits well, or at least looks good with like a shrug or something over it.

Whatever you wear your FI will love and he’ll love it because you’re in it. 

OH!  And I don’t wear heels either, but if you can find some cute wedges (even though I hate most of them) you could probably pull them off.  I went to a big dinner and classical concert with my FI and I wore some fancy black wedges. Just get practice in them and make sure you’re comfortable, first and foremost!

@julies1949:  + 1000 for him being a @ZebraPrintMe type of guy. 

If it makes you feel anybetter, I absolutely hate shopping for clothes as nothing really sits right or fits right. It’s the style now, you have to be a size -25 for things to look nice on you. It’s not you, you are lovely, fashion sucks!
