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!



Originally Posted by misskim_red@msn.com View Post

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.

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
