I realize that some of us couldn't care less about them (I thought I was one too!), but I spent all day yesterday trying them on, and it was so revealing. For one, they nearly always look better on skinny girls. Sometimes an average or heavy girl can look better, but it's because she has a really pretty face, great skin and hair, good proportions, or is able to pick a style that really suits her. Also, judging by the moaning of the other girls in the shops, you'll have fewer and less complicated alterations if you're slim. No need to accommodate an enormous bum or worry that your cleavage makes you look like you ought to be hanging off the prow of a ship. On the other hand, many larger girls are happy to gird themselves in shapewear to the point of hardly being able to breath in order to "show off their curves." Also, I found out that I do care about having a really pretty dress: I'll probably have a plain waistline or maybe something more subtle than the big flower, but this was so beautiful on. The sample was a size 2--which seemed strange, since none of the girls I saw there could have fit into it--and it fit perfectly. They offered me a great discount for the sample, too. I'm just trying to talk them into including the hemming, and then I'll be ready to pull the trigger. I know @Vanity is getting married soon. Anyone else out there? Or just anyone who loves talking about wedding dresses?
