@laurenforte: i haven’t tried this on, but I will tell you that I LOVE ballgowns, I just don’t like how they look on me.
I am not plus size, but I am a very curvy girl and when I tried on a ball gown, it just ate me up and didn’t flatter me at all.
So before you commit to a ballgown, I would suggest trying on a few different silohuettes, bc you might surprise yourself and find that you look good a fitted dress.
Let me tell you why,
When I went dress shopping, I wanted a ballgown, I felt maybe it will hide these areas I hate. I tried them on and i was so sad, I looked like a cupcake or a comforter!
Then I went to this other bridal boutique and I showed the sales woman a picture of what I wanted, and she said, I know what you want.
She pulled a few dresses that I WOULD never have picked for myself. She looked at my face and in her broken Italian accent said, just try on, dresses are not made for the hanger, if you no like, we try more.
Fine, I tried on a few dresses. Then came THE DRESS, I put it on and it was a fit and flare aka trumpet stlye dress, and I died, for the first time I was like heyyyy I look good.
So I just want you to know, that just because you are plus sized, doesn’t mean you have to wear a ballgown, plus size and curvy girls can look good in fitted dresses! Don’t feel subjected to ONLY ballgowns!
I hope this didn’t come off the wrong way.
