That might sound like alot of time for some of you, but for me, finding a dress is akin to being subjected to water torture. I’m fairly short, typical hourglass figure and (depending on the dress) about a size 18.
This is for my brother’s wedding so adding to the problems of my ridiculous wardrobe is that unfortunately, I’ll probably not be able to sneak out of all the pictures.
Suits just don’t work for me, although I love the look. A skirt that might fit me will have a top I can’t close. A top that fits me will have a skirt that swallows me.Anything with ruffles looks too ridiculous to be believed and anything too constructed looks like I’m wearing my mother’s clothes.
Add to that, my budget. Its low. I may have to stray away from Target for this because, while I love them for their casual clothes, I usually don’t find enough of a variety in the dressier sections.
My favorite places to shop for my body type is by doing a word search for “Plus Size Petites” and I’m usually directed to places like Silhouettes and Alight.com. I have ordered many things from these places and do like them.
