I bought a dress yesterday without trying it on. I just grabbed an XL and went with it. Not a 1x, but an XL , which I didn't even know were different until a few months ago.

When I got home, I frantically looked for the receipt because I had this impending sense of doom about how it wasn't going to fit or was going to look horrid, or because the background color is white it was going to make ME look horrid.

After a few hours of being home, I worked up the courage to try it on. It is SOOOO cute! I REALLY like it and so does my husband! The only thing I don't like is that I have this weird "pooched out" spot on my upper abdoman, above my belly button, and no amount of sucking in or tightening my abs, or working out seems to be working on it, and the dress kinda highlights that, but I guess I could break down and buy some sort of spandex thingy, or I could say Eff it, I am not perfect and never will be, and wear it as is!

Some day soon when I am feeling like doing hair and makeup, I will post a pic of it, when I do, tell me what you think!

    I haven't worn a summer dress in about 17 years , so this is a HUGE step for me! I don't even own any shorts other then PJ's! Those are next on my list!

    Good for you! I don't wear dresses because of my weight issues. I hope that one day I can just grab a dress and look great. Thanks for the inspiration!
