Soo, do you wear dresses or skirts? Dh really wants me to wear dresses and skirts but I feel I am too big to look nice in them. I am a jean and t shirt or sweater chick. He says dresses are more flattering on me.
I am hour glass shaped and short with very thick legs. The legs are why I shy away from dresses. I'm short too ( 5'3).

I was thinking about ordering a sweater dress and wearing it with cable knot tights and some ankle boots. Do you think bigger ladies loos nice on dresses? If so, what kind?

Yes! I can't beleive you remember that! Dh is still bugging me about wearing more 'feminine' cloths. I'd love to, but I am self concious. I'm trying to get over it though.
I figure, I'm 30 and I shouldn't waste time being silly and self concious anymore.


Quoting Threes.Company:

I think you can wear a dress or skirt. I would avoid a sweater dress, though. Those are very form-fitting, typically, which can be unflattering. I'd go with an a-line dress that flares out a bit. Don't be self conscious about your legs! You can pull it off!



(Are you the one that dressed up for some event and your DH's friend complimented you and you questioned it, thinking your DH told him to say something?)

Im sure you will look fine in dresses or skirts. i have found that i look better in a skirt and shirt than anything. Go with what makes you comfortable!

I like skirts better than dresses. My girls want me to get a dress, but I am breast feeding my 8 month old. I really don't want to basically undress at church to nurse DS.

You call that a duck face?? Donald would totally be disappointed!!! LOL But really stand on the tube and take a pic in the bathroom mirror so we can tell you what kind of clothes would look cute on you so the next time your hubby learns to tolerate his alcohol you won't be on Cafemom!!
