Body Glide is used to prevent chafing (also referred to here as chub rub rofl.gif). It comes in a stick form, like deodorant. It is awesome!

Ah girl, sorry I don't know if I can help you or not seeing as I'm in Canada. I know here, we have Addition-Elle and Pennington's that carry plus sized clothing and bras. I'm not sure where you can go in the US. SORRY! sad.gif

Not sure what constitutes as curvaceous, but I'd like to think I've got curves wink.gif I will never be stick thin and that's ok with me!

 

Just had my wedding and have to say that a corset dress was the way to go for me -- it held in all the jiggles that I couldn't get rid of before the wedding AND I didn't have to wear a bra despite my 36D's woot.gif Also made me relax and not have to worry about eating like a bird leading up to my wedding cheesy.gif -- my family is Filipino and DH's is black = major food, all day, all the time!!!

 

I read a bit of this thread before I left for my wedding and I must say -- all you ladies are beautiful, awesome and so much fun! *many hugs*

If you've got curves, then you're at the right place! :) Welcome MarieSam, we always love new additions to the thread. Thanks so much for the compliments, I know everyone here appreciates them.

I am so glad I found this thread! I am definitely a curvy girl, always have been, always will be! Even when my son was younger and I was a stay at home mom and I had time to go to the gym every day, I was still curvy. So when you work out 6 days a week for almost 2 hours a day consistantly for over a year and can still only get down to a 12/14, you just know you're destined to be a big girl, lol. Granted, I was toned and I felt fabulous, but I will just never be skinny. I haven't worked out regulary in awhile so I'm up to a 20/22 these days, but just joined the gym and plan on dropping some weight before the wedding (I hope)!

 

We've just recently started planning everything during the last month, so I haven't even gotten around to trying on dresses but I'm kind of nervous that I won't find "the one".

This is exactly the style that I've been looking at online and I never even thought about it clinging to my body and showing all my bulges - good god, that's the last thing I want. I may have to totally re-think my idea of what style dress I want! ugggg!

Hi.. curvy gal here, too.. just joined this forum not too long ago and love it -- so much information!

 

Anyway I have a question -- did any of you curvy gals do BD photos, and if so, how was the experience?

Was the photog nice ? Were the pics flattering? Was it uncomfortable?

I'm thinking of doing it and appreciate any advice/info!

So i used the body glide today and this weekend..and lets just say I loves it!!. it goes on really smooth.. not too thick or greasy. didnt rub off with my hands either. kept the thighs and other areas pretty lubed up.. and i am not sure if i mentioned it before, but it was SPF25 also.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
