Be kind please. I know I am fluffy and I’m working on that.
Due to my size last year when I went dress shopping, I ended up ordering a dress without being able to try it on. It IS a beautiful dress. It came in and I personally hate it on me. I did not think about the construction of the dress itself and not being able to wear the right under garments. I would have to have major alterations to it to make it more a-line, put in back panel, take up shoulders, make into a v-neck or sweetheart with lace front neck area, etc.
After much mental torture to myself and dropping 50 more lbs since Jan (150 total now), I decided to go to David’s Bridal to see if anything would be more flattering. Figuring I will be another 20-30 lbs down, too.
I do still have 4 months to lose more weight but I need to order now as most take 6 weeks plus time for alterations.
So, with all that in mind…which should I choose, if any? I’m open to suggestions as well.
Dress 1 – (My Original Dress)
Dress 2 – Vera Wang (this was too small but envision lower on hips/assymetrical)
Dress 3- beaded lace empire waist tulle a-line
Dress 4- beaded all over lace with sleeves
Dress 5- chiffon with beaded empire waist
Dress 6- chiffon v-neck with beaded belt
Dress 7- champagne/ivory strapless lace
Dress 8 – ruffled ballgown
Dress 9- beaded satin a-line
#10 – other – see suggestions below
Thoughts? Suggestions? I’m very open right now.
