Calling all *Curvacious* women!!

Recommended Posts

Okay I need to vent too. I am tall with broad shoulders and curves. UGH I am always referred to as Amazon women which people think is a compliment but it just makes me feel like I am a big women like Brooke Hogan. So because of this thread I am trying to embrace the curves. I have been working out so hard so I can fit into dresses at the wedding shop because I am terrified they wont carry my size. But like you all say regardless of what they carry, dresses are not made for curvy girls. After seeing Lisa's pictures you look so beautiful I really don't think it matters what size you are on your wedding day, its the happiness that shows through. So I am changing my thinking and weight loss will be a bonus but I will not feel like it is essential! Thank you!

SPANX! Not too sure about these. Seeing as I'm just more than "slightly" overweight, I don't think they'll hide my curves, I have too many of them! lol Addition-Elle here in Canada sells them...maybe I'll check them out!

 

Thanks so much for the packing tips ladies! Great suggestions. On my previous 2 trips, I also came back with clothes that I didn't wear and brought stuff like jean shorts - not this time! I need the lightest stuff possible, that's for sure! I bought this cute dress at Wal-Mart last night which is super light and was only $18! Man, I love that place! lol

JoLo, i bought spanx with the intention of using them for the wedding, but honestly i scrapped the idea. my dress was a-line, so you couldn't really see the stuff that i need smoothed anyway (from the waist down, lol). besides, once the thought: "how the hell am i going to pee?!?!" occurred to me, i knew i couldn't wear them--i had the high-waisted ones that go up to your boobs and come down to mid-thigh, and i had one of those long bridal bras on too ... i would have had to have gotten completely undressed to go!

 

in the end, i strangely never peed all day anyway, lol! too much SWEATING!

Isn't that what the bridesmaids are for?? LOL I actually saw a picture on a respectible wedding forum (possibly the Knot) where they showed the bridesmaids helping the bride hold her dress up! Now that is true friendship.

Lisaloo - I love your dress it looks great on you!!! How lucky you are to have your aunt make it for you!

 

I also LOVE spanx! I couldn't live without them. I don't wear them every day, but I do wear them whenever I wear a dress. I have the high waisted ones so you don't get the 'overhang' at the waistline. Oprah wears them all the time too! They really hide trouble spots in dresses, but the other reason I love them so much is they prevent the painful rash I get when my thighs rub together when wearing a dress.

 

On the topic of that awful thigh rash - I don't know what I'll do in Cuba for the wedding. I want to wear cute sundresses and coverups during the day, but it will be way too hot for spanx! Any ideas on how to prevent the 'thigh friction irritation'?

I'm 5'1" and my waist is about a size 9/10 but I have a 14" difference between waist and hips. I have to buy a size 14 petite in pants for work because otherwise they're too tight in the thighs, but even the petite pants are too long for me! I hate going shopping for pants!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
