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

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'?
