Calling all *Curvacious* women!!

Recommended Posts

I've been fat all my life (including as a baby), and I will never be thin. I totally accepted that fact at the age of 30! I moved on with it and have been happy ever since. Helps to have found a man that loves me for my mind and my body, too! wink.gif I'll probably lose weight to be healthier, but I'll always be a fat girl.

 

I opted out of the traditional wedding dress and got an Ivory evening gown. Much cooler for a beach wedding! Got it at Nordstroms for a steal!

I saw on another thread that a girl is using this dress for TTD! Oh, well...

The thing that get me, is when people feel like it is okay to make comments about your weight. I would NEVER do that to someone who was too thin! But especially about my boobs. I cannot help that they are big, and you know what, when you have DDD boobs, once in a while a little cleav is going to show. What am I supposed to wear a turtleneck all the time?

I think that just bugs me, the boob thing, cause they have always been huge. I think the best thing is all of my life I was under the impression that i had to be thin to meet a good guy, had to be thin, had to be thin... and then I met FI when I had gained 20 pounds, and he still loved me more than anything! So there!! Hahaha... The media needs to stop making us curvy girls feel like crap... More to love!!

 

PS I know I have said it before, but I can't say enough about Davids bridal dresses. They look great on plus size girls, way better than the really expensive ones like from Kleinfelds. When I watch that show Say Yes to the Dress and they attempt to fit the plus size girls in a gown, I want to yell, "Go to Davids! They are making you look like a cupcake!!" And I love how stores only carry dressed like up to size 10 or 12.... get real!

i can agree that david's had a lot of dresses to try on in larger sizes. i didn't buy mine from there, but i had found one there i loved. it was more of a flowy beachy dress. in the end i went big and traditional because that's what made mom cry. wink.gif

 

also, i was really worried about the wedding pics. when it comes to DWs, all i ever saw were thin, model-esque girls in the photos. my DH (funny to say that ... it's only been a week) is 6'4" and 300 lbs, and i'm 5'8" and about 215. we are NOT that ideal-looking, magazine-type couple by any stretch of the imagination, and DH hates having pictures taken and generally isn't all that affectionate of a guy either. sounds like a recipe for AWFUL wedding photos, doesn't it? before the wedding, i had expressed these concerns in a thread about my photogs, and they saw it, and were kind enough to send me a really sweet email in an attempt to put my mind at ease about our pictures. they assured me that beautiful photos come from the way you express your joy, happiness, and love, and have very little to do with how you look. after seeing the photos they took, i have to agree. when the focus of an image is my HUGE, beaming smile as i'm gazing at tom adoringly, even *i* barely notice my back fat or flabby arms (and we are all our own worst critics). really and truly, you have to just let it go. know that your FI loves you just the way you are, and trust that love will shine through in your photos no matter what your size or body type.

 

if you wanna see some pics, go to MEXICO Destination Wedding Photography, Wedding Photojournalism throughout the Mayan Riviera, click on galleries, and we're the first one: dreams cancun, thomas & lisa

Lisa, your pics are wonderful! You look gorgeous, and he looks great too! I got worried about that as well with pictures and all. I am 5'5 and chunky dunky and FI is 6'6 and lean and lanky... But we are happy, and that is what matters. You were beaming :)

Haha... we have a sign in out bathroom that says "We don't skinny dip, we chunky dunk" and everyone loves it. I ALMOST FORGOT TO TELL ALL OF YOU! I have another great website for plus size swimwear... it is 2009 Plus Size Swimwear and Swimsuits Alicia Simone I bought the 3 style convertible swimsuit and love it... It can be worn long like a dress or scrunched up, and it's a halter (more flattering). I am tempted to buy another!! Check it out!

    • 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. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
