    I tried on a simple Vera Wang dress which I LOVED but when I texted a pic of the dress to FI’s Stepmother his father saw it and said, “It looks like you have a Giant Pocket. What are you going to put in there? Tissues and make-up?” Really!!??? Tissues and make-up!? What in the world!? I know he is a guy and I shouldn’t care but needless to say everytime I look at the dress it makes me laugh that someone out there in the world thinks its a dress with a built in purse on the hip. LOL!

    It depends on who made the suggestion.  When it was my mom I’d come up with the most creative put down possible (it’s a long on-going contest between us).  If it’s a salesperson I simled and said something non-committal, then didn’t return their calls.

    I posted this on another thread earlier…my cousin/MOH insisted I try this dress on. She thought the sleeves and lace were very “Kate Middleton” plus it was clearance and 70% off! Ugh..no way! Everyone laughed and she apologized after seeing it on me. The sleeves might have been pretty on a different dress but they were also way too hot for me! I was sweating after having this dress on for less than 5 min.

    It’s also the only picture I’ve shown to FI of me trying on dresses. I thought he could use a good laugh. I told him he can’t see what dress I am getting but he can see one dress that I won’t be getting.

    Dat bow…

    The dress by itself was very nice, but that bow was a massive “hell no”.  This pic doesn’t really show the dimensions of the bow…the thing was huge!

    I don’t have the picture with me at the moment (still have pictures on my home computer even after 2 yrs of marriage) I tried this one dress on and went uh no. It was almost identical to the dress that a former friend wore when she got married some years before (she is now divorced) but the style and cut was almost like what she wore (only reason remember what it looked like cause I was looking at pictures of her wedding to get ideas of bm dresses/ to decor since I had been in her wedding)

    My FMIL loved it but I wasn’t a fan of the frill over my left boob and the pleating or whatever it is going down the left side just looked poorly done.  Thankfully everyone had already agreed on the dress I tried on right before this one.

    @IreneGoodnight:  OMG I tried that on and my sister told me I looked like I was wearing a table cloth. So gorgeous on the model but looked terrible on me!

    It’s a pretty dress, but it was just sooo unflattering. I look dumpy and lumpy and the lace beading stopped halfway down my bust so it looks like the bottom of my boobs is my waist which just makes me look wider than I am.

    I don’t have any photos but one lace gown I tried on was completely transparent. Not the little bit of peekaboo lace you see here and there. Completely. Transparent on top. You could see my belly button.
