OK, I bought my dress. I love my dress & cried when I saw myself in it. So I knew it was the one! But I am being very over critical of myself. I have lost 125 lbs. from being sick. So I lost weight fast, so my skin didn’t shrink like it would have if I lost the weight slow. With that being said, I am happy that I lost the weight, but I feel like I have all this loose skin……sorry if this is Too Much Information. I do work out, but my dr. said that I would need surgery on all these areas to get rid of it because I dropped the weight so fast. So now I am second guessing getting a strapless dress. I feel like people will see the flaws in my arms (I feel like I could fly…..lol). The boob area……they are going to build in a bra to make me look firm, because I am not so firm anymore…….Too Much Information, TMI, Too Much Information. Please give me your honest opinions. If I didn’t want it, I wouldn’t ask.

I think that you’re being too hard on yourself and that the dress looks great. Sure, a good bra would help, but that’s true of almost all of us! Good foundation garments can make or break a dress.
You are the only person who is going to be thinking about your boobs and your arms,I promise. And you look fabulous anyway!

Honestly, you look beautiful. Miss Snow wrote about similar issues not too long ago. You can read her post here:
When I read Snow’s post and saw her pics, I could not tell that anything was “hanging”. And I can’t see any of that on you, either. Sometimes, we are too critical of ourselves – seeing pics of others can put things in perspective.

YOU ARE SOO PRETTY! If you hadn’t posted that you had lost all of the weight I never would’ve guessed. The dress looks great on you and once you get it fitted to your liking it will look AMAZING!

You look gorgeous!!!! After you get your undergarments sorted out and the dress is altered you’re going to feel a thousand times better. If you are going to spend the night self conscious about your arms, why not get a bolero? I found a ton I love on Etsy and I can hardly wait to order one!

I think you look gorgeous and this dress is beautiful! I would definitely agree with Bakerella if you dont think your arms look as fab as you want them too a bolero would cover that up, but I truly dont think you need it! 🙂

I think your arms look great! I dont see any skin hanging! the straps on your dress look too long I think. The dress seems too low. I think a great bra and a strap adjustment will be the final touches.
You look beautiful and Ilove your dress!
