      Body Glide is used to prevent chafing (also referred to here as chub rub ). 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!

            Not sure what constitutes as curvaceous, but I'd like to think I've got curves 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 Also made me relax and not have to worry about eating like a bird leading up to my wedding -- 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*

                  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.
