arielmarieae: I’m wishing you good luck with your dress search. I went to David’s Bridal on Sat., 3/15/14, and was greeted by a very knowledgeable and kind consultant that couldn’t have weighed more than 90 lbs. At first, I felt like why in the hell would they send her over here and not give me the chick that was more my size…I’m a size 14. Anyway, this consultant was awesome. I didn’t feel as if she was looking at me a certain kind of…fat chick…way! ***I wish someone would call me fat*** I digress! !! Anyway,  I ended up getting my dream dress. Should have it in about 3mos.

I feel like just because someone has a different body shape than you does not mean they are necessarily judging you! You want to feel good about yourself, so you need to find a consultant that helps you find what you love. That doesn’t mean she has to look like you. This girl sounds unhelpful. But her unhelpfullness  and her size are not related!

I feel you, OP. I am heavier than you but shorter, I’ll bet. I can’t say that the girl who helped me was at all unhelpful; quite the opposite. She was petite, but I never felt that she was judging me. That has nothing to do with your size; your attendant just sucked. But I know what you mean about not “feeling it” in the big white dress. Maybe that traditional style isn’t what you should go for! I’m doing a short dress, and it feels a LOT more ME: fun and bridal and awesome, but not BRIDAL.

As for losing weight– you can do it if you decide to. Personally, I’m not deluding myself tht some miracle is going to occur in the next three months and cause me to suddenly get motivated, but that’s just me.

It’s possible that you just need to go somewhere else with a decent attendant and different styles of dresses.
