Unfathomably:  you think someone suggesting undergarments is rude? I’m always thankful for truthful and helpful criticism unless someone Says “you look terrible” or something similar. I’m not trying to argue but I dont understand how only fake comments is nice either. Maybe I’m thick skinned bc I prefer honesty.

gelaine22:  did I say undergarments? No. I said people saying the old dress is better and she should reconsider. So everyone who posted something nice is fake? There is also the option of not saying anything at all, especially on a dress regret post were the OP clearly already felt insecure about the original dress to begin with. I’m just asking how those opinions are helpful at all? “sorry op, because I am a special snowflake my opinion is more important and you should go back to the old dress. But whatever makes you happy”

ksn1219:  I’m so glad you fixed your dress regret!! I am hoping to do the same. How long did they say it would be before your dress comes in? I am getting married at the end of May and worried I will be limited to samples. But I love Lazaro and the other JLM brands like Tara Keely, Jim Hjelm, and Hayley Paige.

Unfathomably:  i used undergarments as the example because I agreed with that one. And I never said EVERYONE was fake so please don’t say that. However, if people just said “congrats it looks great,” then I think that would be fake…..

Everyone has pretty much said its good she is happy and that is all that really matters.

I think I missed someone saying it’s ugly but either way people are entitled to their opinions on a public forum.

gelaine22: this. I also think it’s more rude to blow smoke up someone’s ass than dish out tough love, but that’s me. 

maybe pp is all rude! because she thinks it looks good and is taking any opinion to the contrary a wee bit personally?

gelaine22:  I am just saying that the people who are telling OP that this dress is worse than the old dress are doing more harm than good with their comments. It’s good to be honest, but sometimes blunt honesty is rude and tactless, and really unnecessary. If I were completely honest with every person I ever met in real life I probably wouldn’t have many people left who liked me.

Unfathomably:  if you’re posting your dress on an online forum, you’re inviting both praise and critique. I’d personally welcome critique of my dress, espeically if it didn’t look that great. This isn’t a best friends club where all we can post is sunshine and roses. A person can still post that they don’t think something is flattering (something I agree with in this case), and the OP can take those comments as she will. It’s not your job to be the post police, and in doing so, you’re making unnecessary comments.

gelaine22:  But if you don’t like it, why even say anything? You don’t NEED to give an opinion at all.

Unfathomably:  This is an internet forum. I’m not trying to be mean or a bully at all. The dress is not flattering – anyone with a pair of eyes can see that.

Personally, I thinks its far bitchier to comment false praise about a dress that is obviously not right for her body type.  

If she loves it and wants to wear it – power to her. If you actually read my comment you would see suggestions. Not everything is rainbows and butterflies. I don’t want OP to regret this choice of dress when she gets her wedding photos. 

 

ETA – I haven’t seen a single commentator say the dress is ugly — merely offering suggestions that her previous dress was far better suited to her.

ClaudiaKishi:  this is true. BUT I think many people wouldn’t comment on lots of threads if that were the case. I like to see all different opinions. The rude ones aren’t included.

gelaine22:  Haha, very true. To me, if the OP asks for opinions then by all means go for it, but if they don’t, why bother even saying anything, you know? Not that the alternative is to blow smoke up their ass…
