@UpstateCait: You will look stunning in your dress! God, I hate the generational non-filter. My grandma is not that bad but my FGMIL freaked out once because I was wearing a ring on my left ring finger (not engaged yet). They dont fit on my right hand!!!Totally, nowhere NEAR as bad as your FGMIL, but its like come on. I feel for you girl and Im glad you had fun at the shower otherwise!

@melisslp: Me next!

That’s stupid. I’m wearing a strapless dress and I’ll let it “all hang out” in her honor. 😉 Ha! Matter of fact, the dresses with big straps made me look BIGGER. She should have at least been accurate in her bitchiness. Lol.

Her opinion should be of no consequence to you. It sounds as though she is always going to see the bad.

She sounds like a joy. (ugh)

Yeah, I have a grandma like that who at my sister’s wedding 8 or 9 years ago yelled at me and told me I was “just jealous”.   Lovely.  

I hate to say this, but I know what she is talking about.  Granted, I am plus size and wearing strapless so I certainly don’t think big girls can’t or should not wear strapless dresses, but some girls do wear too much of a push up bra and it looks like they are eating their boobs.  lol.  Personally I don’t like that look and I think it makes girls look chubbier since it’s all jiggly, but I have not seen many girls at all here on the hive with that issue at all!  And Caitmare, I’ve seen  your dress on you and there are no such issues.  It looks great on you!  Your grandma is going to eat her words when she sees you!

Ah, grandma. There’s always SOMEONE who speaks before they think. Don’t worry about it – just do your best to shake it off. I’ve seen many a full figured girl rock a strapless gown. It’s all in the wearer, I say. You’re going to look gorgeous!

We might have the same Grandma!

My grandma offends me regularly…only she doesn’t know she does! Ugh. A few weeks ago she made a comment to my brother about girls in glasses not being attractive (my brother thinks her young neighbour is hot, but apparently wears glasses so my grandmother doesn’t feel she’s suitable). Meanwhile I’m sitting there WITH MY GLASSES and she totally didn’t clue in to the fact that she essentially just calld her granddaughter unattractive! I’ve always thought I had this sexy librarian vibe, but thaks for ruining that grandma and making me all insecure!

Also, your grandmother is basing her opinion on a show where 90% of the girls are wearing dresses that DO NOT FIT. Of course their business is all hanging out!!! I’ve seen plenty of curvy gals in strapless dresses and things were contained -who wants to be worried their boobs are going to fly at their wedding?!

I’m sure you’ll look beautiful and grandmother will agree, just pass it off to old lady opinion syndrome! lol

Tell Granny, “You should see the lingerie I’m wearing on our honeymoon.  Totally X-rated with matching whips, chains, & handcuffs!  Your grandson loves my ‘stuff’ hanging out, as I do his…”

@UpstateCait: WOW what a bitchy comment! Try not to let it get to you, it sounds like she’s just saying hurtful things out of spite of the fact that you’re actually happy with your life.
