- Wedding: December 2013
So, I thought I would share a picture of me in my pretty. 🙂 I went dress shopping for the first time this past Saturday. Being plus size, I was very nervous about how things were going to go. The first place I stopped at had a few gowns that I liked…and the first one was THE one. When I came out of the dressing room and stood in front of the big mirror, I didn’t feel uncomfortable like I normally do in clothing. I felt so amazing and I cried. It also made my stepmother cry who went with me.
I tried on the last couple and nothing compared to the first. Then my stepmother suggested we go to DB so I could try on some more just to be sure. I tried on 6-7 dresses there and none of them gave me that feeling. I kept wondering if I felt that way because ya know, it was the first dress, my first time doing this, blah blah blah. But my stepmother insisted that none of the others compared. So, we went back to the first place and I tried it on again, which is the photo below, and I cried yet again. Needless to say, I found my dress. 😀
Oh, and I’m usually a street size 22 and the dress is a size 20 Alfred Angelo style 2082. They need to fix just a few minor things on it since it was the sample and shorten it a little…the perks of being 5′ 1″ lol. But I felt so beautiful in it and can’t stop looking at it. I was on cloud nine in the car on the way home. 🙂
Sorry if its too big!
