This is me:
I'm heavy. I'm trying to lose weight for the wedding, but with the way it's going, it probably won't be a huge amount. I need to find a wedding dress that will cover the problem areas, like my upper arms and tummy. I am NOT wearing a strapless or sleeveless dress. Not happening.
Here is the bridesmaid dress we picked out:
I think I want to go with a short-sleeved dress for me, since they're in straps. If I go with long-sleeved, I may find a shrug for them to wear.
So these are the dresses I like!
I'm looking for other opinions. I know mine is what matters, but I like outside perspectives. Comments, suggestions? Keep in mind my shape, and the color and style of the bridesmaids dresses. My wedding gown will be ivory.
I am not going to try them on in stores. This website has $200 dresses and I love them (bought the dress I'm wearing in the top picture from them), and they are based in China, with no physical stores. I also HATE trying on clothes. So yes, while I know it is smart to try stuff on to see what looks right, I'm not doing it. I hate bridal stores, I hate trying stuff on, and I'm too big for most samples to fit me anyways. It wouldn't help much.
So that's that. Thoughts? =)
EDIT: It's important to add that this site makes the dresses custom-fitted, so I make any part of it as loose as I need. Sleeves, torso, etc. They make a perfect fit. It's www.lilywedding.com by the way.
