@Barbiestylez:  Are they from RenzRags on Etsy? I was thinking of buying from them, but the quality doesn’t look great. What material did you use?

@winstonchurchill:  Did you read her update? OP is not ignoring her sister’s feelings… her sister is the one who chose the dress. OP said “choose a dress in this colour” and her sister chose that one and then says it’s unflattering. It’s not OP’s fault at all.

@Barbiestylez:  To me, it sounds like maybe your sister had a moment where she overreacted and she is not realizing it. If she says she’ll make it work, then trust her. Don’t worry about it anymore. If you want to wait a bit and ask her again, that’s fine, but I wouldn’t keep pressing the issue.

@Barbiestylez:  I see both sides here!  She’s not communicating it properly to you, but I don’t think that dress works for her.  And please don’t take her calling the dress “ugly” personally— because that’s the thing with style/fashion… Everyone has very different opinions and just because one person thinks something is ugly doesn’t mean the person who likes it has bad taste- just different!

@Barbiestylez:  Your sister is having body image issues.  I can relate, I don’t like my body either.  Finding a dress that I liked was not an easy journey.

 

As far as you sister goes.  I think finding a good seamstress could do miracles to help her like the dress more.  From what I see in the pic, the dress is not straight on her back, and the corset is funky.  take it to a seamstress and let them work some magic.  As far as her ungrateful attitude goes.  She is out of line and needs to apologize for making you feel rotten.  She chose this style.  She needs to suck it up.  However, I would not approach her for a few days.  Let her cool off and then breach the topic with her.  

 

As far as you are concerned.  Do not to take this personal.  Body image issues when you are not perfect and trim can be devistating for some of us.  She clearly doesn’t like her body.  Try and make her feel beautiful.  Offer to pay for a pashima wrap to help her cover up if she feels uncomfortable.  But again, I really feel like the seamstress is key here.  I don’t think she intentionally set out to look selfish and ungrateful.  She is having her own meltdown over HER BODY, and her disdain of how she feels she looks.  This absolutely can be worked out.  Unfortunately you will have to be the one to extend the olive branch…….she is being selfish and probably won’t.

 

I am sorry you are dealing with this.  Dresses and body shapes are difficult.  Not all of us can wear the same thing.  I have had some bumps with my girls.  I am paying for everything for my girls.  And we have had some dress issues.  I have now bought them each two dresses.  But nobody is complaining about the style.  They are grateful that it is my dime not theirs.

 

Good luck!

 

ETA I just read your update.  Glad you have found s solution.

@Barbiestylez:  That’s great customer service. Explains why your sister’s dress was a bit ‘off’ compared to the rest of the dresses. Hope everything goes smoothly from here!
