aghck, the girl on the right looks like 10 pounds of jello stuffed into a gallon sized bag. how could someone do that to a friend?! the other girls look like the desperately want to get out of this picture.
I have to agree with Bird. We went to a wedding where the bride had a build very similar to this young lady and also wore a sstrapless dress. She spent the entire day hauling her dress up. I’m sure she wasn’t comfortable. And just for what it’s worth – the only person who gets the full benefit of a strapless dress is the minister – and generally speaking, he or she isn’t all that interested.
I have to agree that the cut and fabric of those bridesmaid dresses is not flattering for a MAJORITY of body types. That and the color combination is just ugly. Also, strapless dresses are not kind to women with large breasts. There is no way you can have an adequately supportive bra without straps when you are that busty. You’re going to spend your whole time pulling the dress back up where it belongs. I hope the bride and groom enjoyed their wedding and got what they want for it, but it’s certainly not my taste. (And I somehow question if the groom really wanted those color combinations – they look like a Disney princess theme threw up.)
kniget, You’d be surprised at how many girls show up in the same prom dress. At least in my area. lol
I wore a strapless dress to my prom and I’m not exactly petite. But I had it resized so that it would properly fit me (and it was taken in, not let out FYI), and I hid some safety pins between the dress and my bra to keep it up the whole night. Oh, and it was a darkish blue color with beads, not bright. But still, just because we’re big doesn’t mean we can’t wear pretty clothes. Maybe they didn’t have anymore dresses in the next size up for these women, or maybe they were too baggy. It’s not that bad, I’ve seen 10 time worse, including 200+ pound girls wearing belly-bearing shirts.
@Kendall – As a fat woman myself, I agree with Missy on the sleeveless and too tight issues. We fat women should wear our clothing loose fitting and we should always have sleeves for the good of humanity.
However, purple is an awesome color. Of course I’m saying that because I look damn good in it myself.
I agree with you on that Jami, heavier women shouldn’t wear clothes that are too small for them. Actually, no one should do that – I don’t care what size you are, please wear clothes that actually fit. It’s much more flattering.
What the?! man those are some hideous gowns! design, color, fabric…horrible. Looks like they were purchased at DEB. The bride has cornrows? what? did nobody notice that? The groom tops it off with a green tie…I’m speechless!
the lady on the left is PREGNANT not fat (as a fat lady myself) but no one should have to wear a dress like that for any reason. They must really love the bride. The groom even looks not too happy in a snot green tie.
Ugh. This would have been a very nice looking wedding party if not for the brides love of all things tacky! To each their own, I always say, but sheesh! The colors are like something out of a Lisa Frank nightmare!! I personally have not worn pink and purple together since I was 10, and that was in 1990 LOL.
I like the dresses… or rather the design of the dresses. The fabric sucks, and they don’t suit the people wearing them.
I agree that big women should not wear too-tight clothing but I disagree with the sleeveless and baggy clothing.
If you’re fat and you wear baggy clothing, you just look that much fatter. Wear clothes that FIT. Maybe a little on the bigger side so that you can be comfortable, but never should you wear anything baggy (unless in the privacy of your own home).
The sleeveless thing is stupid. I mean honestly, arms (big OR small) don’t look good whether they are covered or not. You can still see the size and shape of the arms. I used to be a person who only wore tank tops/sleeveless things while at home because I hated the idea of people seeing my arms. And then I realized that it’s more comfortable, and that people were weeing them whether I covered them up or not.
Unless you have shirts with sleeves that hang down to your knees you’re not hiding anything.
