So I pretty much made my choice tonight so thanks to some of you, kind of? I am traveling and honestly don’t even feel like going through all of the responses.
I may do it later, who knows, just because I really do want to reply to the people who were genuine though I will likely just message you. I don’t feel like sticking around just because people trying to use me as a point.
Like if your happy with yourself and how you acted, why do you care what I think? Only you knows if you were genuinely trying to help or are just a deeply unhappy person. I am not gonna go through and call people out though I mean there are a few exceptions to that, well one, because it was funny.
I knew saying you guys where being mean would result in tons of defensiveness and “calling me out”, demanding I go to therapy over you not likely my dress?(Lmfao!!)
It’s just a dress, it’s whatever. As I mentioned the negative response were a shock, which I let it get to me, turns out I am human, shocker!
You live and you learn, it’s not that serious.

MissCtoMrsR : “None of these, please explain.”
OP, I am glad that your gown choice was solidified. You mentioned midway through four pages of posts that you didn’t realize how much you loved it until people questioned it. It sounds like you are going to pick the perfect dress for you.

pantsapocalypse : OP it seemed like you really love the style of #3. I think you mentioned before you’re in the Seattle area. Does the BHLDN in Seattle have a sample in stock to try? I know they sell it online and several other bees have tried in on at BHLDN. Maybe you’d feel better if you tried on that one since you think you’ll really love it? Even if the Seattle store doesn’t have it, I would recommend ordering it from them because you could get a full refund if you don’t end up loving. Hope you find the one you love!

oregonbee214 : Thanks for the suggestions! I am actually leaving today but that aside I decided to get a version of Galetea made custom as just general purpose formal wear.
I need more formal wear and it will be cheaper that way. I wanna make some changes to it anyway, like adding some boning and creating some 3d elements.I am not 100% on the BHDN version but the Watter version had a complete lack of structure and would have been above my natural waist so this way I can have a version that fits perfectly for much less. Also, watter does these amazing puffy illusions sleeves that would work beautifully with 3d elements as a cold shoulder addition.

“ I don’t feel like sticking around just because people trying to use me as a point” ???
Lord knows what that actually means .
I have never, in several years on WB, seen such flouncing and pouting and ridiculous carrying on, ever . You are right , there is no point in sticking around here when you have, apparently, people IRL who will cater to your nonsense.

I feel slightly tempted to go back through all the posts and copy and paste all the compliments people made (nice figure, great boobs, etc) … Lots of posts said that you should totally do what works for you and that you should buy the dress you’re comfortable with.
Noone insulted you. Most people were nice. Many (me included) posted pictures of dresses we *honestly* thought would look great. You called them ‘frumpy nonsense”. The dress I posted is genuinely one of my favourite dresses – you calling it “frumpy” isn’t nice. Yet you call us mean – I don’t get it.

The reaction to this thread has been insane.
Everyone makes nice comments to every other dress post except mineeee waaaah
If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t post at all.
Why did you even post? People made comments that were not mean, cruel or negative really and your response is they shouldn’t have said anything?
When you give the option of 1,2,3 or none it implies that you are still dress shopping and picking none is a valid option. If you had said originally that these were the only dresses you were considering then your comments may have been just people posting how you could make them work.
As a side note I have seen may dress posts over my time on the bee when people have nicely suggested “keep looking” so it is hardly just you. And your rant about all the ugly, ill fitting dresses on the dress boards that get compliments is just rude.
