Totally agree with that!!!!! You are celebrating your love..not your size...  you should choose to get what suits you and looks amazing on  you.....I've been struggling with a different body size for a few years and I truly believe that "I am what I am and that's all that I am"  even if I'm not popeye.

If you look back a handful of pages there is quite a bit of comment on Jasmines bridal and pictures of peoples dresses.  I ordered from them and love my dress and used the premium.  I think alot of it depends on the style of dress and what is important to you.  They have a lot of pictures online of their work and states what grade of service was used.

CherryCoke,

 

They made some beautiful dresses for brides on this thread.  Good client service, and fast delivery.

 

MissKim,

 

I said it numerous time, husbands don't care about our weights, they like who we are in the way we are.  Otherwise, they wouldn't propose. Thus, I never understand why we got a "weight loss thread on this forum" and confusing messages like I m proud of my body, but would love to loss 30lbs before my wedding. 

It is not about weight/size, it is about healthy lifestyle all life long, not just for the wedding. BTW I envy your curve, and I am like that girl in the movie Interview with Vampire!  mouhahaha..

You dress is beautiful, is that your main dress or your reception dress?

Ana,

 

I think there was 1 bride on this thread who was from South america and ordered 2 dresses from Babyonline.  You have to check with the vendor, the time to make the dress will stay the same (10 to 20 days), the shipping, usually they ship the dress with DHL or other express service.  As for duties and taxes, you have to check with the Brazilian custom.

Ok, thx for reminding me that humans don't like their bubble to be poked by others.  I will wrap my words in bubbles next time.

Praye,

 

We live in an "image conscious" and "conformists" society, and even tiny toddlers "prefer" good looking teachers and find them "smarter" than normal looking teacher.  My point was ACCEPT your own size/weight/...etc, don't understate it/conceal it.  Of course as long as you are healthy and happy.

 

As for people who killed themselves, I just don't understand them.  Everyday, millions of living creatures are fighting for their lives to stay alive, like Steve Jobs said: "no one wants to die, even the ones who believe in heaven don't wanna die to get there!".  People told me that I have small eyes, short and flat chest, and it is true, and I accept these are facts that I have to live with, ...and I don't jump off from the bridge.

Anapoa,

 

I apologize if u felt offended.  Fat is a subjective and relative adjectif.  As long as you are healthy and you hubby loves the way you are, no one cares (none of their biz anyway) if you are fat or not.  As for mutant, I referred to the fact that size 14 is still a rare size for a Chinese worker/dressmaker, they can't even imagine it.  One of my friend is a plus size black girl, she went to China, and she said people (local chineses) were taking pics of her everywhere, some actually pinched her and touched her curly hair!

"Delusional/fat brides", unite! I'm a proud size 14 and my husband wouldn't trade me for any model.



Misskim,

 

Not 100 yrs ago, even now, some countries value women with a lot of body fat!  my mom used this argument all the time and I told her that was the era before John Deere and Caterpillar. Until recently, our family doctor steps up and recommended her to be on a diet. 

I envy your curve, and Marilyn Monroe was a sexy icon.  Trust me, I would love to see that one day.. some inflated bras size chart too, so I can say I am a C cup! LOL

I am not trying to make people feel bad, like I said, my point was DON'T understate the measurements.  Communicate with the dressmaker with your concerns, so that they can get the dress made in the right size!

Being a 00 and having the body of child is not attractive to me.  Everyone has their own personal thoughts and PrettyPig has expressed many times that about the way she feels about sizing and curves.  This is supposed to about dresses and not about making any one else feel bad about themselves.

 

BACK TO DRESSES:  Highly recommend my dress maker for curvy or larger busted girls.  They got the D cups right with the perfect perportions, the waist is perfect, and the hips are perfectly done!



For those who think I am laughing at chubby women, well, I am trying to get prego, so soon you girls can all laugh at me as my karma! LOL

I don't think PrettyPigPig means to offend anyone on purpose. As an Asian woman, I can tell you a huge part of it is simply culture. You would probably say my family and particularly my very large extended family were emotionally abusive if I told you half the things that I went through or witnessed growing up.... For many Asians, being direct and honest is how we feel we can help you. Now... don't get me wrong, lol PrettyPigPig fully admits she sometimes doesn't have the best delivery or tact... but I think you get what I'm trying to say. 

 

She has really given a lot of time to this forum, including countless complimentary posts, and (REALLY IMPORTANT AND BENEFICIAL TO ALL BRIDES HERE) reviews and researched information on different companies and vendors to help us all save $$$. I don't think an intentionally cruel person would go to such great lengths to give so much advice on dresses... 

 

Now let's all get back to those pretty dresses!! :D

I agree that she has had good and bad advice and comments on dresses.  But calling a bride's measurements mutant is not doing anyone any good. 

 

PrettyPig,

Just the for record my measurements do not constitute high body fat.  My BMI is on the lowest end of average and I work out 5 days a week.  My body was built with curves the same as your body was built without them.  I  think you need to choose your words more carefully. 

 

I work for a wedding chapel and every day have to deal with brides who are self conscious about their body image and don't like themselves in their pictures.  Nothing is more heartbreaking then having a bride NOT love her photos and have bad things to say about herself when the man that loves her most in the world is sitting right next to her. 

 

You have these comments and beliefs, fine. 

 

Vettiebean,

My family is Irish and we say what's on our mind just as much as any culture.  We are here to talk about dresses and quality.  If she wants to say have someone take great measurements, good say it.  But don't use degrading words like mutant and refer to anyone else's body as belittling as PrettyPig has in the past.  Read back several pages and read some of the things that have been said; it will make your stomach turn.  This is a brides day to be in the spotlight and I'm tired of seeing brides so unhappy with their body that they can't see the true meaning of the day and of their photos. 

 

 

 

 

Keep comments to dresses, construction, and how we can make the most of our amazing day....find another forum to belittle and berate people and use harsh words.

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa.

    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
    • What is BMI? Body Mass Index ( BMI index ) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. For children and teens, BMI is age- and sex-specific and is often referred to as BMI-for-age. In children, a high amount of body fat can lead to weight-related diseases and other health issues and being underweight can also put one at risk for health issues. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but research has shown that BMI is correlated with more direct measures of body fat, such as skinfold thickness measurements, bioelectrical impedance, densitometry (underwater weighing), dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and other methods1,2,3. BMI can be considered an alternative to direct measures of body fat. In general, BMI is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening for weight categories that may lead to health problems. How is BMI calculated for children and teens? Calculating BMI using the BMI Percentile Calculator involves the following steps: Measure height and weight. Refer to Measuring Children’s Height and Weight Accurately At Home for guidance. Use the Child and Teen BMI Calculator to calculate BMI. The BMI number is calculated using standard formulas. What is a BMI percentile and how is it interpreted? After BMI is calculated for children and teens, it is expressed as a percentile which can be obtained from either a graph or a percentile calculator (see links below). These percentiles express a child’s BMI relative to children in the U.S. who participated in national surveys that were conducted from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Because weight and height change during growth and development, as does their relation to body fatness, a child’s BMI must be interpreted relative to other children of the same sex and age. The BMI-for-age percentile growth charts are the most commonly used indicator to measure the size and growth patterns of children and teens in the United States. BMI-for-age weight status categories and the corresponding percentiles were based on expert committee recommendations and are shown in the following table.   Weight Status Category Percentile Range Underweight Less than the 5th percentile Normal or Healthy Weight 5th percentile to less than the 85th percentile Overweight 85th to less than the 95th percentile Obese Equal to or greater than the 95th percentile   How is BMI used with children and teens? For children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool and is used to screen for potential weight and health-related issues. For example, a child may have a high BMI for their age and sex, but to determine if excess fat is a problem, a health care provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include skinfold thickness measurements, evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other appropriate health screenings. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children beginning at 2 years old. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. BMI online Is BMI interpreted the same way for children and teens as it is for adults? BMI is interpreted differently for children and teens even though it is calculated as weight ÷ height2. Because there are changes in weight and height with age, as well as their relation to body fatness, BMI levels among children and teens need to be expressed relative to other children of the same sex and age. These percentiles are calculated from the CDC growth charts, which were based on national survey data collected from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Obesity is defined as a BMI at or above the 95th percentile for children and teens of the same age and sex. For example, a 10-year-old boy of average height (56 inches) who weighs 102 pounds would have a BMI of 22.9 kg/m2. This would place the boy in the 95th percentile for BMI, and he would be considered to have obesity. This means that the child’s BMI is greater than the BMI of 95% of 10-year-old boys in the reference population. For adults, BMI is interpreted as weight status categories that are not dependent on sex or age. Read more: How to interpret BMI for adult BMI Why can’t healthy weight ranges be provided for children and teens? Normal or healthy weight weight status is based on BMI between the 5th and 85th percentile on the CDC growth chart. It is difficult to provide healthy weight ranges for children and teens because the interpretation of BMI depends on weight, height, age, and sex. What are the BMI trends for children and teens in the United States? The prevalence of children and teens who measure in the 95th percentile or greater on the CDC growth charts has greatly increased over the past 40 years. Recently, however, this trend has leveled off and has even declined in certain age groups. To learn more about child and teen obesity trends, visit Childhood Obesity Facts. How can I tell if my child is overweight or obese? CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens age 2 through 19 years. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. Although BMI is used to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool. To determine whether the child has excess fat, further assessment by a trained health professional would be needed. For information about the consequences of childhood obesity, its contributing factors and more, see Tips for Parents – Ideas and Tips to Help Prevent Childhood Obesity. Can I determine if my child or teen is obese by using an adult BMI calculator? In general, it’s not possible to do this. The adult calculator provides only the BMI value (weight/height2) and not the BMI percentile that is needed to interpret BMI among children and teens. It is not appropriate to use the BMI categories for adults to interpret the BMI of children and teens. However, if a child or teen has a BMI of ≥ 30 kg/m2, the child is almost certainly obese. A BMI of 30 kg/m2 is approximately the 95th percentile among 17-year-old girls and 18-year-old boys. My two children have the same BMI values, but one is considered obese and the other is not. Why is that? The interpretation of BMI varies by age and sex. So if the children are not the same age and the same sex, the interpretation of BMI has different meanings. For children of different age and sex, the same BMI could represent different BMI percentiles and possibly different weight status categories. See the following graphic for an example for a 10-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy who both have a BMI-for-age of 23. (Note that two children of different ages are plotted on the same growth chart to illustrate a point. Normally the measurement for only one child is plotted on a growth chart.)  
    • Whether your relatives were especially generous with their checks or you intentionally set up a cash registry, let’s be perfectly clear: There’s no right or wrong way to spend your wedding gift money.  So sit down and start talking to ensure you’re both on the same page, then check out some of our favorite ideas for spending (and saving) those dollars wisely. Be Sensible About the Long Run
      Sometimes it pays to be a responsible adult, even if it seems boring on the surface. Before that cash starts burning a hole in your pocket, it’s a good idea to “pay yourselves first.” That means paying down debt (especially if you racked up any for the wedding itself), starting a rainy day savings fund, or even contributing to your retirement accounts. It might feel like a lifetime away, but one day you’ll both be glad you made such a sound investment. Save Up for Something Big
      A wedding windfall offers the perfect opportunity to get the two of you closer to a future goal you’ve been dreaming of. It can be as immediate as investing in much-needed new furniture (you can finally dump that lumpy old mattress!), or as far down the road as saving up for a home. Or maybe you want to buy a new car—especially if that sporty two-seater you’re currently driving doesn’t exactly match up with your plans to have kids. Whatever the goal, working toward something together will only serve to strengthen your relationship. Bright idea: Want to put your wedding wedding toward a down payment on a house? Consider opening a certificate of deposit (CD), especially if you’re not planning to buy for a few years. CDs tend to offer higher interest rates than savings accounts—and since you can’t touch the money for a set period of time, it’s useful if you’re usually tempted to tap into your savings for more immediate needs. Have a Little Fun
      Once you’ve got the future squared away, it’s okay to treat yourselves—so go ahead and enjoy a mini splurge that’ll benefit both of you. Reserve a small amount to put toward a shared interest, like a high-tech wine fridge or top-of-the-line home theater system. Or if the two of you have been texting each other pictures of golden doodle puppies for weeks, and you’re serious about raising a dog or cat, visit your local shelter or check out reputable breeders to find a new four-legged friend. Allocating a bit of the funds for something exciting maintains a healthy balance in your spending habits, making long-term financial wellness more achievable. (You know what they say about all work and no play.) Bright idea: Take a class together. Having a common interest helps you grow as a couple, so pick something you both want to learn, like a foreign language, and enjoy that extra quality time.
