bridesmaids dresses.

07.30.10

So, the wedding I’m standing up for in November? Well, we picked out the bridesmaids dresses today! It is from David’s Bridal and so pretty. You can see it here.

I was quite a bit disappointed to have to get a size 14. It’s been a long time since I have worn that size, but I’m (almost) over it. Despite the size, I felt absolutely beautiful in the dress, and I think feeling confident and comfortable in what you’re wearing is really more important than the size.

I think that the clothing industry is completely and horribly inconsistent in their sizing, anyhow. I can go into one store and wear one size, then go into another and be swimming in the same size. Even within the same store, it can be terrible! I was with one of the other bridesmaids and she tried on the dress that we’re wearing in the wedding and it was one size, but then another that was in consideration, she fit more than comfortably into in a dress a size smaller!

So, even though I’m not thrilled about the size, I love, love, love the dress and can’t wait to wear it as a part of the wedding party!

    Clothing sizes are a joke. As long as you look and feel great, that number means nothing. You have a great attitude and you’ll look great on the big day!
