@Barbiestylez:  its probably easier for her to call the dress hideous and ugly because shes actually thinking that she is hideous and ugly. if it’s only the dress shes being negative about then I’d cut her some slack.  It’s really hard having to wear an outfit someone else picks out If you’re already insecure in your appearance. I do think the dress needs some alterations but she has a nice shape and I think the dress flatters it. The colour is fine as well.

I think with a little tweaking this dress could look great.. add an empire wasit, and making the bust area smaller so it doesn’t look so large & dumpy would help.. also.. once she gets  a supportive bra to wear underneath.

Is she married herself? Maybe she’s jealous too? My ex best friend had a fit and was being blah about everything I cut her off we don’t talk anymore. :/ we have been friends since 5th grade shes like my sister. Obviously, it’s different but idk I hope she comes around the dresses are beautiful. I wanted to get my dresses done on etsy but was a bit scared.

@Barbiestylez:  I don’t know, to me your sister looks fine in the dress from the front. The back I don’t like so much, but I’m sure it could be fixed with some alterations. Your sister needs to put some big girl pants on because this is your wedding and I’m sure she wants everything to go well. I know you’re probably frustrated, but I’d approach her very kindly once she has had a chance to cool down and figure out what you should do with the dress.

Is that you in the rest of the dresses? Holy moly you’ve got a great body! All of those look pretty to me.

That dress does not look good on her at all. It does not compliment her shape. It’s frumpy. I realize that she should pick another dress but I wouldn’t wear that one.

@Barbiestylez:  I’m sorry to hear about your sister kicking up a fuss about the dress. I think she’s more insecure about herself. Maybe you 2 can go try on dress styles that would flatter her shape and size that way you would know for sure what styles will suit best b4 ordering online again?

By the way you look absolutely stunning in your wedding dresses!

Oh fingers crossed, hope it goes well (went well)!  Did she try the dress on with heels?  I know that can make a huge difference in how I feel about something!  Also, an option, take the dress and good heels to a garment shop and tell the ladies to whip up the right undergarments to work magic!  Truly for me, even at a decent size, I have curves and some unforgiving mommy pouches from over the years lol so everything can make a difference from underwear to bra to where a waistline sits on me, etc!  Though I also would suck it up and figure out how to rock the dress no questions asked for a bride – I just realized I’ve never been in anyone’s wedding but I would have proudly worn anything and laughed about it later if it was a miss!

@Barbiestylez:  Yikes. I’m glad you talked and seem to be working it out. You said each Bridesmaid or Best Man chose their own style right? So she chose that one? I was the heaviest Bridesmaid or Best Man in my friends wedding, and I went out of my way to find a dress that would fit and flatter me and we ended up all getting the same one! I think the reason why the dress looks off, is there is no balance. She needs to lose the straps or get a dress that has TWO wide set straps, or an actually centered halter. The other thing is she needs a GOOD bra, and I know you said it’s a little large in the bust, but she needs to prop her boobs up..do the sweep from her side up into the front, gathering all of her breast tissue that can sort of spill out to the sides, if you know what I mean? It looks like they are sort of sitting under/on/near the wide band, which should be at her waist. That flowy sort of dress should be forgiving on the hips, it just looks like it isn’t positioned right on her body. I agree with the above PP, some shapewear should help smooth everything out and make her feel much better. I think it’s sweet you’ve offered to buy her another dress! But I think you can still make this one work too!

This is your sister and she needs to look good and needs to hear that from you.  

 

The dress is poorly made and cheap so besides the poor fit does not have proper construction that larger women need.  Were these Asian made? . Send her to a bridal store to get a properly fitted dress that will compliment your wedding party colors.

I think one of the other styles would have been better for her body. It would look better if it was centered. I don’t know if it’s the picture, but one boob looks huge and the other boob looks non-existent.

I’m sorry she was rude, but I’m sure she was disappointed that it didn’t fit right/didn’t flatter.
