My mom bought me this dress for my birthday in January. I am usually not a fan of white because I’ve heard it makes you look a bit heavier and then there are the annoying underwear issues… But. I am in love with the lace! Other than pairing the dress with a thicker belt than it came with [to disguise where the “empire waist” hit me….see: short torso issues 101], I am glad I took the plunge. And many an underwear dilemma [lines, color, etc] can be avoided when pairing a white dress with tights. Win!
It has taken me years and years to figure out which styles I feel most comfortable in. Shopping for dresses in my youth was like a trip to the dentist. I hated it [no offense , Sandy!]. Dress shopping was almost equivalent to bathing suit shopping in my book. And everything I settled with was always so awkward fitting, too. Thinking back, I can’t decide what magical moment clued me in on dress shopping for my figure. My best estimate is once I graduated from college and had to start shopping for teacher clothes. In search of style and comfort. You must impress the judgmental preteens and also be able to move around all day. Kinda tough!
