So I have hit the point in life where everyone is getting engaged and married. I was lucky enough to be asked to be in my Biggie’s wedding this coming October! Let me tell you about my Big (pictured below), she is beautiful but her best feature is that she has one of the kindest most loving hearts. She will pick you up and put you back together and fight the fiercest fight for you. I don’t know how she would literally pick me up, since she is all of a size 2! So of course I had a few worries about standing next to my skinny, tan, and blond biggie.
We woke up crack of dawn and made our way to David’s Bridal. We were a prepared group with great parameters to work in, we had to stay long and in the same color, everything else was up to us! Thank you biggie for long dresses cause no one wants to see my pale stumps of legs. We all grabbed our dresses and went to the fitting rooms. Thank you David’s Bridal for carrying sizes 0-30! We tried on a one-shoulder lace gown, which was SO perfect on all of us that now we are all wearing the same dress style. A few of us came prepared to the fitting with spandex, let me tell you spandex is your best friend when you have no thigh gap. It is okay to not have a thigh gap because long term we are winning. Research has shown is easier to get preggo and push that eggo out for girls without gaps!
I felt like a million bucks and was the biggest girl there. SIZE DOESN’T MATTER! I will keep saying this you will look beautiful if you feel beautiful & smile! Beauty comes from within as cliché as that sounds. No matter what size you are beauty comes from your soul, smile, and walk. Find friends (& even boyfriends) who love you for who you are right now. Biggie didn’t want us to be anything but who we are big, pale, dread headed, you name it. She said she loved us daily just how we are so we didn’t have to change us for for just one day. That is the type of things the people you surround yourself with should say to you.
Find women to surround yourself with that love you not for superficial looks, but the person you are. I promise women like that are out there.
“Girls of all kinds can be beautiful – from the thin, plus-sized, short, very tall, ebony to porcelain-skinned; the quirky, clumsy, shy, outgoing and all in between. It’s not easy though because many people still put beauty into a confining, narrow box…Think outside of the box…Pledge that you will look in the mirror and find the unique beauty in you.”- Tyra Banks
HAPPY WEDDING SEASON BIG GIRLS!
p.s. I would love to see your best and worst bridesmaid dresses.
