I’m a plus size girl and when I saw this dress I knew I could wear it without looking silly and still feel good about myself on our big day…
I had decided not to show any of my friends untill the big day but last night after a few drinks showed my best friend (also bridesmaid) she turned her nose up and the conversation went something like this…
“Oh…. dont you want a big dress with a basque that pushes your boobs out?”
“no, thats not for me.. I want to feel good and I know I can pull this one off”
“it’s okkkkk… but you should wear a BIG wedding dress!”
“I’m already big, I dont want to look any bigger! I like this one”
“Have you looked for anything else?”
I changed the subject then but now I’m starting to wonder if I have chosen something too plain? I really regret showing her! For the record I have been married before and she advised me on my last dress.. I hated it!!

I think you already answered your own question 😉
The dress is gorgeous and not too plain at all! You should wear what YOU want and what makes YOU feel beautiful. It’s your big day and dress decision, not hers and it doesn’t matter what your friend ( or any other person) wants.

That dress is pretty and definately isnt too plain . Wear what you feel beautiful in. Everyone has a different style and you need to please yourself not your bff. I personally prefer a simple style dress and more fitted. Ball gowns though beautiful swallowed me up also. Do yourself a favour and dont show your friends esp the ones are known not to give positive reactions .

It is a beautiful dress. Fit it and if you feel comfortable in it, you wear it.
This is the dree you picture yourself in then go for it. THIS IS YOUR DAY!
My maid of honor turned up her rich expensive nose to everthing i picked. The best advise i got was from my Mr. M he said do not consult her on anything. Working great so far.

She doesn’t like it…. she doesn’t have to wear it.
I think it’s beautiful and simple. The most important thing on your wedding day is that you FEEL beautiful and comfortable in your own skin. If that dress does that for you, then rock it.

Don’t you hate how those types of things come spilling out after a couple drinks? :p I think it’s a beautiful dress, and all that matters is that you feel beautiful in it. AND, her comments make it sound like the dress just isn’t her style (“You should have a BIG wedding dress!”) rather than being a reflection of how she thinks you look in it.
So rock it, girl!

Who cares what the friend says! My maid of honor doesn’t like my custom designer gown, but she’s not the one wearing it.
That being said, it sounds like you like this dress because you think it won’t “look silly” on your plus size body. If you love the dress, go for it, but don’t settle just because you think its the only thing that will look good on you.

It very pretty. Being plus size myself I understand the sensitivity. But it is really really pretty. Try to ignore her. Its hard, but sometimes we just have to have a thicker skin. xo

@mandy102: I found it on callistabride.com, it’s style 4091, although I havent actually bought it yet.
Thank you everyone for your positive messages, I was feeling a little down after her comments. x

I like this dress. Who cares what she thinks? I’m sure not everyone is going to like any dress you pick – you should go with whatever you are most comfortable in 🙂

Do you love it, or do you just think it’s OK?
Have you tried it on or did you just see pictures?

I think it’s a nice dress, but it all depends on how it looks on you. It also sounds almost like you are settling for the dress because you dont have the confidence to try other dresses. Go with whatever feels right for you. If you think this is the dress you want to get married in, go for it and dont worry about what anyone else thinks. =)
