So I’ve dropped a little weight lately. Enough to fit into a size 10 dress (big yay for me!). So I found the “perfect” dress online at Sears.com:
I ordered it special for a date night with my DH. It came in JUST in time for our big night out tonight.
Here’s the problem:
It fits, but it just doesn’t hang right on me. I don’t know why, because I have a high waist and this dress certainly hits at that level. For once, the bodice fits perfectly, and I have no spill-over issues. The length is just right, hitting mid-calf. The major thing I can find wrong is that it bunches in the back a little, like I’d have love handles right above my natural waist line. I don’t have them (there anyways) to the point that it should be causing this dress issues. I wanted it to be a surprise for my hunny, but now I think I need his opinion! Ugh!
This situation does not help with my body-issues. Recently I found a grey hair. Normally, any other person might take it in stride, but I am freaking out. I don’t want to end up looking like my biological mother:
(thanks knucklebones.net for the Cthulu drawing)
Yep. She’s the stuff nightmares fear. Think I’m being harsh? Go ahead. Meet her. I dare ya.
She went grey at an early age too, and um, had some body issues as well. I have no desire to look like her, but I can see it happening (or maybe I’m being paranoid as my DH likes to tell me). I’m seriously considering plastic surgery!
And before you get all jumpy on me here- yes, I have a daughter. Yes, I learned how NOT to be a parent and wife from my BM. No, I will not make my daughter think I hate my body, because truth is- I don’t. I just don’t want to look like HER.
Now I just need to find a good tailor to get this dress to hang right…
