so i just wached the first two episodes of “say yes to the dress: big bliss” and i’m not sure how i feel. have anyone seen it? what do you think?
i just feel like they are TOTALLY stereotyping all plus size brides (they all have body image issues except the rare one who is proud of her curves, they are all emotionally scarred from trying on dresses at other stores). they say they have the most extensive collection of plus size dresses, but then it seems like most of the dresses they tried on the girls in these two episodes were……umm…kinda dumpy looking. or stereotypically – tons of ruching. but basically you can get nearly any dress is most sizes (they don’t say anything about that).
it would be helpful if they talked about the ridiculousness of bridal sizing (i’m street size 12 but had to order an 18 – then they wanted to upcharge 30% for “plus sizing”). i think it is a nice concept – i think i only visited 1 salon (Vera) where i could zip of the sample sizes – so i understand what they’re talking about. i’m just not sure about the way they are doing it.
i also reacted to the title”big bliss.”
what do you think? what was your reaction?
