Help with dresses, pics please



Recommended Posts

Hi. I haven't worn a dress for over ten years! I like dresses and now that I'm a size 12 I feel I could probably wear some now. Problem is I don't really know if it looks ok or not. Would some of you ladies please post pics in every day dresses or sun dresses so I can get an idea of how there supposed to look. I'm about 5'5" and 179 lbs... size 12... Help!

What is your body shape? That plays a huge role in what types of dresses will look good on you.

You know the saying...everything is not for everybody. :)

Or you can Google "wear to work dresses" or "day dresses" to see what they should look like.

Wrap dresses are usually pretty flattering. banana republic has a line in every color. I bought a snake print wrap dress at kohls last week.

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.

Seela, try Chico's. Their dresses are very flattering and comfortable. I'm wearing one in a pic in my photo gallery if you want to check it out.

You could totally rock out in a little black dress! Is it a special occasion dress?

Oh, awesome, I've never been there but we actually have one in my town. I always thought of it as a skinny woman place. .. keep forgetting I can shop anywhere now. I'm definitely going this weekend!

Ahh thanks! No, not really, just thinking maybe I could wear something other than jeans or capris. I would just really like some cute summer dresses and I didn't know where to start. I'm really hard on myself and to be honest the last time I wore a dress I had a flat stomach. So far every dress I've tried on is like empire waist and I just can't help but feel even more fat. It's my stomach, I can hide it in jeans but summer dresses, not yet. I'm going to try some of the suggestions here though, thanks

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
