First of all, dress makers are assholes.
I went to this fundraising benefit for my friend's son's school last weekend. It took me 4 tries to find a dress that fit. SOOOO frustrating. After losing 130 pounds, you'd think it gets easier, but apparently not. My first attempt was an amazon buy, size 18W and it just fit weird. I'm currently a 14/16 btw. My second attempt was PromGirl.com dress that was a size 3X. It was FAR from fitting as well. Third dress never arrived, and the 4th dress was another amazon attempt size 18. It was a little large but I made it work.
The benefit was great, and I felt pretty, so I wanted to share a few photos:
