Hello Beautiful Brides to Be,
I just wanted to share a wonderful experience I had last week that has really changed my mind about how I feel about my body. I have spent countless hours online looking at plus size brides wondering how I look in my dress next to these women. “I wish I looked like that” or “why can’t my waist be more defined” are some of the thoughts that I would obsess about. I was 3 weeks away from my wedding when I realized that the little miracle of losing 25 pounds was not going to happen. So I had a choice to make…… I could cry and try to make miracles happen or I could accept my body for what it is and learn to love it. So the next day I decided that in order to feel good about my body, I needed to find clothes that complement my body and not fight it. Ladies, there is nothing more important then wearing clothes that fit your personalized needs instead of cramming yourself into the newest trends. I went to a store called Maurice s and the ladies helped me find just the right look for my body. I was able to find jeans that fit my stomach area comfortably but did not have the baggy jeans look from the butt down. I found tops that showed a bit of my 40G gift that I use to think was a curse. Every single one of you have a body part that you love more than anything on your body. Learn to show off that part just slightly and I guarantee you will feel so sexy. What I’m trying to say is that plus size does not need to be a curse. When I went to dinner with my Fiance the next evening, I felt as if all eyes were on me that night. For the first time, I was not looking down to make sure people weren’t looking at my stomach or thinking “why is she wearing that”. I held my head high and I got soooo many compliments about how I looked and I even received a “I wish I had your body” comment from a skinny girl! And needless to say, with my new found confidence came with a few other perks….. My Fiance can’t keep is hands off me now!!
You are all beautiful ladies and NEVER let any one tell you differently! As long as you feel healthy and beautiful on your special day, that is ALL that matters 🙂
