THE Dress - VICTORY!!!

Recommended Posts

Today is a huge day for me. A personal victory! Twenty something years ago, I did phen-fen medication and got down to a ridiculously small size. It was great while it lasted! Anyway, I kept one dress (I called it my Victory Dress) that I wore twice before having to stop the medicine and gained all the weight back.

I.... can ....wear.... it ....today!!

It is probably too young for me now, and I may never wear it in public, but I don't care! It fits! :D YAHOO!!!!!! I'm over the moon !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations Cindy!  That's a NSV for sure.

What about adding few extra inches of black or coordinating fabric to the bottom of the dress?  Or maybe wear it with black leggings or opaque tights.

Woo hoo! You look great! Too young for you? I don't think so - I'd second @cinwa's idea of wearing opaque tights or leggings with it. French women wear miniskirts their whole dang lives and get away with it because they're thin - as are you, so of course you can pull it off. Go for it!

Thanks and good idea! I've ordered some gray tights. Even if I chicken out wearing them with the dress, I can use them for other outfits. :)

@cinwa, @Cardamom77, @Cheesehead, @CheeringCJ, @Res Ipsa, @Jen581791, @delilas, @xmandy and all others who didn't say I was nuts!

Armed with your encouragement and great advice about tights, I wore my Victory Dress to a Christmas party this weekend. (It was my book club women so I felt in a safe, positive environment.) Everyone was so nice and complimented my outfit! Lots of nice comments about my weight loss too.

 Thanks so much!!!

What a beautiful Christmassy outfit! You look amazing (and of course so proud of yourself, as you should be!). Print that one out and hang it on the bathroom mirror for when you get one of those "Do I look fat?" days - it's great evidence of your newly svelte silhouette, and very hard to argue with, even for our crazy post-WLS brains. Truly beautiful.
