    This was a topic I always found useful a great way of showing that curvier ladies look beautiful in their wedding dresses. When I wobbled I loved remembering how beautiful you can look and even before I bought my dress it was a great way of calming myself and realising that you dont have to be a size 8 to look good.

    This is me in my dress.....I still wobble over it. I feel quite big in it but I also try to remember that this dress is a bit big for me and will fit better once fitted....ill repost a pic when it is. :)

    Be brave ladies!!! Im a size 18. xx

    I've found it really useful and found a thread the other day that was so true!.

    I've just copied it and this is what she says (sorry if its not allowed)

    Well, after two years of planning I finally got to marry my lovely man! I had the best day ever, and felt fantastic all day. I consciously decided not to let my size be an issue in the run up or on the day - after all, none of my guests were turning up expecting me to have magically transformed into a size 8, and if I didn't manage to relax and have fun none of the guests would. I was hugely inspired by all the photos and reports on this forum - so many ladies looking absolutely stunning in their beautiful dresses. My husband had fallen for me the way I was - and I suspected if I'd made myself miserable eating only lettuce for 18 months beforehand I wouldn't be any less worried about my weight on the day. So I made a real effort to be relaxed in the run up to the day, and on the day of the wedding I found myself excited but not nervous. Surrounded by people I love and walking up the aisle to John, I felt like I was walking on air. I'm now horribly jealous of everyone who's still planning their day - you'll feel a million dollars, ladies!! xx

    You look stunning, and I wouldn't have you down as a size 18, no way!

    Your husband will be so proud of you on your wedding day x

    My dress is by D'Zage, Style number 3991, and I'm in love with it ! :D

    Squidge and MrsApplen2be you both look fabulous in your dresses and no where near the sizes you profess to be. I have to say I love my dress and felt amazing in it even in my size 16/18. But I am loosing weight (partly because I want to for the wedding, but mostly for medical reason - due to my disabilities I have really bad circulation in my feet and weight loss would ease that and my back problems) I love my curves though and certainly do not want to be straight up and down! Although I really want my boobs to shrink! I'm up to a GG these days and hate photos cause al I see is them and nothing else which makes me feel huge! Fingers crossed they'll reduce as I loose more weight, 2.5 stone gone another 3 - 4 stone to go.
