100 lb. Club - Bridesmaid Dress NSV!!!
05-15-2013, 06:22 PM
Hey guys I have just got to share this someone!!!
I went to David's Bridal today to order a bridesmaid dress for my friend's wedding. I was expecting to order a 14. I tried it on and it was too big! The 12 fit! Then I made them take my measurements just in case and I am totally a 12!
At age 16, I wore a David's Bridal bridesmaid dress to Prom. It was a size 16.
Today, at age 29, I am a David's Bridal 12.
I can barely believe it!!!
And the wedding is in August so I should be even smaller by then (although not much, I am only planning to lose another 5 lbs or so)

Here is a pic of the dress, but we ordered it in the color wysteria. It's like a medium purple.

Beautiful dress and you look great! You'll be a beautiful bridesmaid.
Plus I love the socks -- brought back great memories of a shopping trip with my sister where she was walking around in knee highs trying to find a dress that would fit her better.

It's PERFECT!!! Can't wait to see pics of the purple! CONGRATS!!!

Wow! You look amazing in that dress. BTW, you can tell the bride that it is probably the prettiest bridesmaid's dress I've ever seen. It actually even is one that can be worn again! (Dinner on a cruise, maybe?)

Way to go!! :)

Thanks all! I'll try to remember to post pics from the wedding. It's in August. LOL I ran to the store during lunch at work, so I was trying to get it done as quickly as I could so I left my socks on :)
It's supposed to come in July. I wonder if I will look different with another 5 lbs gone by then. When I started at 265, you couldn't really see 5 lb differences. I'll try to remember to post another pic then. I am 170 in that picture (168.8 exactly.)

Those things are usually designed to be alterable fairly easily. So even if the dress doesn't fit so well because of further loss, they should be able to make it fit again.

Congrats! You look great!!! :yay:

Gorgeous! You look pretty in peach too if you ever need to pick a color. Your skin tone goes beautifully with it.
When you show us the purple, skip the socks! :D
