- Wedding: October 2016
So if anyone has read my last 2 posts, from body issues to eating disorders to my fiance creating (unnecessary) drama, I’ve come here, safe and sound, lol.

But back to the point. I went in for my dress fitting, dead scared that I have somehow managed to gain weight and that my dress won’t fit, I will have spillages my fat will be everywhere.. insecurities were at their peak.
Well guess what, it fit like a glove!! And as soon as I looked in the mirror, I started crying. Never in my life have I looked at my whole body and self and thought “I am beautiful”. This was the day where I gasped, twirling in my gown saying “I am so beautiful”. My seamstress is a goddess, I couldn’t thank (and hug) her enough! The dress its finished, there’s still some touch ups to be done, but it’s oooking great so far 🙂
I finally felt like I was enough. To some this may sound shallow, but for a person battling with body issues and an eating disorder for such a long time, things like these mean a lot. And it meant a lot for me. All the bees in my previous post were so encouraging, they were assuring me I will love it and I did not believe them 100%, but they were so right.
I hope that this just shines some rays of hope to those who are struggling with similar issues. Everyone has a right to feel beautiful and it doesn’t matter what it is that makes you feel this way, but it’s so important to know it’s possible!! 🙂
Here are the photos !! Feel free to share your gowns too!
