My daughter's senior prom was Saturday. My husband and I have been planning for years that when she had her senior prom, we would also get dressed up in formal attire, and go out for dinner.
I was planning on wearing a bridesmaid dress from last summer.
When I ordered the dress, I ordered it in a size 14. The lady at the shop encouraged me (based on my measurements) to order it in a 16 because she said these dresses ran about two sizes too SMALL. But I refused. The dress was a little snug, but with the help of some serious undergarments, it worked fine.
Anyway, I figured I've lost some weight (not a tremendous amount, but 16 pounds or so) and the dress might be a little more comfortable now.
I was wrong. I put it on, and it literally FELL OFF.
My daughter saw, and gave me her homecoming dress from last year (a size 10) and it fit beautifully!
So here's a pic of the four of us (I'm in the blue!!)
