I think a fit and flare dress would look really good on you. That style is like the black and white dress (#2) the Atelux17 is wearing.

I also vote for a "fit and flare style". I just bought that style dress for a wedding next weekend. I am going to be with people/ family who haven't seen me in a while so I wanted my outfit to show of my progress without being over the top. At 6 months out, while I have dropped 7 sizes, I have not worked out enough to tame my saggy , baggy belly. I am not complaining, its just a fact that this fluff needs to be tamed by the right clothing, lol. The "fit " hows accenuates a smaller waist and the "flare" conceals a loose mid section easily. I love the wrap dresses and but I am still too self conscious about being a bit lumpy. Happy shopping!

A long tight Lycra singlet will hide any jelly belly. Yes you could get spanks but the cheap option is the long Lycra singlet which I buy from Target in Aus so maybe check out some of the cheaper dept stores.

YOU ARE ME! I haven't worn a dress since prom. I eloped for my wedding so I never wore a dress! I am also 5'5 and 170lbs. I was thinking that I could probably wear a dress but I'm so overwhelmed I don't know where to begin. I saw the post about a potential wrap dress; however, I think my boobs (the only thing that hasn't reduced) are to big plus I still have the baby flap over so I would have to wear some major spanks to fit into the little black dress. Shorter would work since I'm not tall, but again, the process is very overwhelming.

I totally agree. I never thought I'd hate shopping but it's such a chore now because I don't even know where to start or what size i am. I'm excited about getting some dresses though... Now... I'm not even going to start on the nightmare of bra shopping! Lol

I'm 6 months out and 70 lbs down. I recently found I'm wanting to wear more girlie clothes and went dress shopping. I tried on over 30 dresses (and wasn't all sweaty and ready to pass out in the dressing room because I'm cold all the time now) - all different styles and found two that I really liked and purchased. Go to the stores and try on everything you can get your hands on! It was very surprising on what I found I liked on compared to what I liked on the hanger. I had a blast even though I was shopping by myself.

Great idea! Dresses were my savior during my wt loss period. You can wear them everyday, even if u lose 20lbs & with tights& boots winter to summer transition is do-able. Unlike my damn pants that kept falling down& revealing my plumber butt on the daily. Hrrmph. Wraps, color blocking, slim inset dresses all help.

I must really respect the ppl on this forum to allow all my embarrassing selfies on here. I'm indecisive in dressing rooms. I'm 5'4 & 165lbs to 135 in these pics.

You look great. You're very pretty.

Thanks! Yes, I went with my daughter and I think she may have had more fun than me... she was pulling dresses left and right. .. I never would have even tried these types of dresses without everyone's recommendations, so thank you so much!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
