So, buying your wedding dress is like cutting your hair, you’re pretty much stuck with it if you can’t afford to get another and, I don’t know, I feel almost like I would be “betraying myself” AND my dress if I cheated on it, so to speak. I fell in love with this one. I am 5 feet 7 and 145 lbs and have an ample bust. My figure is “hourglass”. I just showed my dress to a co-worker (who is not invited to the wedding) and she said, “that’s a great style for your shape, but you better start those crunches because that model is at least 30 lbs lighter then you !”. This made me so sad and angry at the same time and now I don’t know what to do. What if Fiance feels the same when he sees me for the first time? Unfortunately, I do not have a pic of me in it. Ps. This girl is known to speak her mind but I never knew she was a b&TCH !

I have had people say similar things to me. A relative of mine told me I had gained tacked on a lot of weight. No one should ever comment on that. Ever.

Tell me about it ! I am getting married in 5 months and unless I stop eating, which is not healthy and work out like a crazy woman, there is no way I am going to lose 30 lbs 🙁

There is a thread around here somewhere that compares the model pictures of dresses with the real people wearing them, and almost every single time the real people looked way better. The dress was sized to fit you, I’m sure, you won’t be squeezed into that size of dress, and you will fill it out beautifully! Your Fiance knows exactly how you look and he loves you the way you are, don’t listen to your coworker who seems to have her own issues.

People say that sh*t because they are HELLA JEALOUS! From your description you sound hot! And remember your Fiance is marrying you because he thinks you are the hotest woman on earth, his jaw WILL be on the floor on your wedding day.

That’s so rude of her. If I were you, I would tell her that!

That woman is an inconsiderate idiot! You are thin, and you will look fantastic in your gown. I’m sure that model is sickly thin and photoshopped. Know that at least you have enough class not to say something so rude.

I cannot stand ignorant people! What makes it ok for her to say that to you? No one comments on her weight, or lack of tact, so she shouldn’t be commenting to you! I’m a firm believer of it’s not how much you weigh, but how you carry the weight. I think you’ll look fantastic in this dress. You should let her know that there’s no need for snide remarks!
Grr…I’m so angry FOR you!

grrrrrr on that mean co-worker. Seriously, sometimes people just don’t think about the horrid things that they say. When my Darling Husband was in Iraq, my co-worker always would comment on how “things are meant to happen if he dies.” Who the crap says those things???
At 5’7″ and 145 lbs, I have no doubt that you are going to look absolutely stunning in that dress. I am jealous!!!!

Thank you ladies ! I got my revenge. Walked by her desk and threw the last bit of my coffee in her potted plant ! Once my dress comes in in July, I will take pics of myself in it and repost here !

yeah, someone that I work with recently said “So, you’re losing weight for the wedding, right?” Um, not really. I’m at the lower end of a healthy BMI for my weight. My fiance and I both love the way I look. I fit into my dress. I think i’m good to go. Just realize that these people are insecure about themselves – they hyperanalyze their own appearance, or else they wouldn’t be so concerned about everyone else’s!

I LOVE YOUR DRESS! SO much! As for you being fat…hell no! That is a healthy weight for your height. How RUDE of your coworker!! It isn’t like you are going to be trying to squeeze into a size zero dress – you bought a dress that will fit you and be altered to you! Trust me…your Fiance will only be thinking about how gorgeous you look and how he is luckiest man alive to be marrying you in that moment! Don’t even THINK about what that rude b!tch said.

I don’t know why people think it is okay to say things like that. She needs to keep her opinions to herself.
By The Way: Your dress is beautiful.

My MOH’s husband actually made very mean comments about a photo of me in my dress, saying the chest area (which didn’t fit at all on the sample) looked like a breastplate and I with it like a valkyrie. I was so upset that I immediately uninvited him from the wedding – effing bastard – and my friend wasn’t even upset, she hates his guts too. People turn nasty when a wedding is on the cards, as your delight highlights their own unhappiness and dissatisfaction with their lives. Don’t let a crazily jealous co-worker ruin your joy – that dress is gorgeous and you will look amazing – crunches or not. 175 Ib is not big!!! And a dress like that is made for an hourglass figure – I loved that style but it did nothing for me, as I am too straight up and down. You will ROCK that dress and be the most glowing, happiest bride ever!
