Bridesmaid requesting help...
Posted 25 January 2010 - 11:53 AM
I had my Bridesmaid Dress fitting yesterday, and all the girls looked fab in their dresses...I myself, am a bit more curvy then them, and the dress style looks absolutely horrible on me...or so I thought, I couldn't bare to look in the mirror.
I tried to get the straps a certain way so as to offset my insecurities and just be able to have a good time, however it didn't work. I am a very self conscious individual, and I know its not my day and I shouldn't be so upset, but I don't want to be that girl, that looks like a normal dress wouldn't fit her properly so they just sewed some pieces of material together to look like the other BM's....
Im torn between just sucking it up, dieting a little, and just being ok with that, and saying something to try and figure out a solution that works for both of us ( Bride and myself) ...although the Bride didn't say anything about how it looked....
Would you tell your BM if the dress didn't look good? or would you just leave it and hope that the BM would be honest with you about her feelings about the dress...

I guess honesty is always the best but if the dresses have already been picked and ordered and paid for it may be a pain in the ass. What about having the dress altered? Maybe a tailor can get the straps the way you wanted. Victorias secret also sells those um, not spankys, that are supposed to take you in a bit, they work wonders!
Im kind of dealing with a situation with my brother, hes a groomsman, and hes a big guy 6'4 maybe close to 300lbs, and my Fiance decided on the guys wearing Burberry polos, only the largest size they have is 2x and they cater to a much slimmer body type. I told my fiance from the getco my bro' would never fit into it, but we still asked my brother to try it on, and it was not flattering AT ALL. To say the least my fiance is upset and frustrated, because truth be told any brand that my fiance may decide on probably will not fit my brother.

But, before she picked that dress I went shopping with the Bride and the first dress she wanted was very low cut in front and I'm large chested, I told her "If you want all eyes on you you probably shouldn't put me in that dress. The girls won't stay in." She laughed and kept looking. The dress she chose wasn't my taste and didn't flatter my body, but it did most of the girls and this bride wanted every one to be the same.
She may not budge on the dress, but she might or at least see if it's possible to get you a different style in the same color. If she's your friend and you can talk to her, and I hope you can, then kindly and supportively speak with her.
