I’ve had those experiences, lol. Not the “plus size” comments, but one of the women at the bridal shop made me order a dress a few sizes bigger than I needed (I’m a 12 because of my apple bottom/hips/thighs), then simultaneously made snide remarks and tried to bullshit me into thinking it looked good when it came in and looked horrible. Needless to say, I decided NOT to order from them again. Sorry that awful woman gave you such a hard time!

@Mrs.Lebertintraining: Haha, I bet. I would have been pissed on your behalf, too. I appreciate honesty when shopping for a dress and whatnot, but not to the point where it becomes borderline offensive.

Well technically a 14/16 is considered a plus size! It sounds like you and I may have a similar shape/size… I too am mostly comfortable with the way my body is and would have shaken it off as well… 

It’s true what you said though… some people just don’t have any tact!

I’m a size 8, 150 lbs (and 5’10”) and got called “overweight” by my gyno once. I totally feel your pain… what’s up with people!?

Way to make a girl feel special right before her big day, huh?

I also noticed that bridal gown sizes are smaller than “normal” dress sizes.  I’ve heard it’s because bridal sizing has not adjusted to follow the “vanity” sizes most clothing retailers engage in nowadays.  For example, I’m normally a size 6-8, but my bridal size is 12.  I’m not sure what bridal gown designers consider “plus” though, given the above. 

Ida still smacked a bitch, though.  🙂
