don't suggest things to me that won't fit my ass ... it's like suggesting that i try exercise.

/rant.
You know I was in their website a few minutes ago and I was ticked about that same thing. I mean seriously! why show me an item and then they only have that in size 2. What the censored.gif?

I have also ordered a few things today, I will see how they look. I am going to Jamaica next month for a site visit (doing things backwards) I selected a resort and we are now going to see the place and I will be seeing my in laws for the first time so I need to look good.

Lisa - I agree completely with you BUT at least you can buy their clothes. I checked it out and it doesn't look like they ship their plus size clothing to canada - gimme a f'ing break!

 

Imuze - ohhh good luck with meeting the in-laws, that'll be fun! And don't worry girl, you look good, so no need to worry!! cheesy.gif

oh so it's not just me then? i should write to them. also the navigation is stupid. i would like to be able to navigate ONLY within the faith 21 line (like be able to click on the "new" or "sale" categories without being bumped to forever 21 products, KWIM?).

so are your FI and his family from jamaica? it sounded like you would be meeting them there. i know what you mean about wanting to look good, but his family won't care what you look like as long as it's obvious you make their son happy. :)

It is so not just any of you. I had the same problem too!

 

On a different note... I have been fighting massive sinus issues as I am an allergy nightmare and living in a new area. Doctor put me on steroids for a month to shrink polyps and such... I griped about it because they make me hungry and I blow up retaining water. I ended up having surgery to remove them because the steriods did nothing. Turns out I am systemically resistant to steroids... awesome... so I blew up but got no benefit. So fun!

 

Ladies, I just ordered some Linen capris from Jessica London in a few colors. They are awesome. Back is elastic, front is button and drawstring. Very light and comfy but perfect for an evening look at the resort. I don't remember the price off hand right now but I want to say under $20 each.

ok so faith 21 tops get an A+ ... cute, cheap, and 1x fit me perfectly. as predicted, the pants just didn't fit AT ALL. and they were the biggest size available, which was a 2x (not a numbered size ... not sure if their other pants are sized the same way). the rest of you can't judge pants by me tho because i'm extremely bottom heavy (huge difference between my waist and hip measurements).

Hi ladies... just found this thread and I love it! Thanks for making me feel better :) I am stressing about the dress, a bthing suit in front of guests, the TTD and maybe a boudoir book - all of these depend on my shape. Yuck!!

hey ladies....sitting here in tears, so I thought I'd write really quick and hopefully find some words of encouragement. FI and I went on a float trip last month with a bunch of friends. The pictures just got posted on facebook tonight and I wanted to PUKE. I don't even look like me anymore. I don't know where I lost track of watching my weight, but I've become a fricken balloon. Haven't stepped on the scale in months. I didn't even notice the weight gain until a couple of months ago when my own mother asked me if everything was okay with me.

It's so weird, when I got engaged to FI a year and a half ago, I was a curvy size 11/12, and still getting away with the sorority lifestyle of partying all the time and drinking my calories.....today I'm sitting here in size 20 pants while I write this and bawl my eyes out. I HAVE to get this weight off. I'm almost as big as I was at my highest weight when I was a sophomore in HS, and that was the point where I developed an extreme case of bulimia. Feel like I'm at my wits end. I was going to try the cheat your way thin diet, but had to go out of town on day 3, so that kind of killed it.

Sorry to just go off on here like this, but I think I'm about to lose it, and I had to get this written down and out of my head. I've never been a tiny girl by any means, but it's bad when I'm looking at myself and I don't recognize what I see. The camera doesn't lie. I'm going to get off of here though, and take a walk before bed.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
