I think recognizes that people come in all shapes and sizes is really important, I understand overseas that they may not be "used" to the size range we know here but "Mutant" and "x-men" generation just seem hurtful!

I swear..even the great white sharks won't bite her because they may have a heart attack after one bite. My dad nicknamed her..Gozilla! LOL
To be fair, my dad is a very skinny chef who looks like a 40 yrs old man because of his diet, a lot of organic vege, low carb, high protein diet. I was fed like this since I was a baby, so I don't like bread, rice, pasta...I love soups, fish, and lean meat...oh..and red wine in general..I am a very picky eater too. Thus, it is no surprise that I am a 00p, or Gap kids size 12, much much skinnier than Chinese chick's average, the dressmakers were a bit shock.
I guess the dressmakers will eventually get used to X-men generation brides. However for now, if any bride is at the outer range sizes, she MUST be clear and precise with the dressmaker or else...the dress may have a weird cut or fit.
Well said, diets vary so drastically around the world and diet is not always to blame for "weird sizes" sometimes medical issues, metabolism and other factors play a role!! There is nothing WRONG with bread and pasta, and like you said the "healthy stuff" is not exclusive, you can like both!

I love pasta and bread and that doesn't prevent me from loving the healthy stuff as well - fruit, veggies, etc. But I also LOVE my curves, as so does my boyfriend. I think all of us should love our body, our shape and try to keep healthy above all things.
I'm definetly not petite and I sure don't think I'm "weird sized". If you asked me, I'd say 00 is quite a weird size, too.
And here I thought my size 10s were HUGE!!! Glad to know I am not alone out there!!!

Well ladies, all is not COMPLETELY lost! My awesome seamstress is able to repair my dress! She will remove the front panel and replace it with a new piece of chiffon. And my replacement tiara arrived with a pearl "apology" necklace, the tiara was in okay shape but a few of the stones had come loose and I had to fix them. Nothing terrible this time thankfully!
Now the bad news... It's going to cost me $350 or more to fix my gown I can have the rip just tacked in place and it would only cost about $150, but I would still have those ruches! If I was a super-skinny bride I may not care about having a wrinkly belly. But there is enough emphasis on my belly already, I don't need that ruching to draw attention to it. So, my $250 gown became a $300 gown which is now a $650+ gown... *sigh*... I need a drink!
