I'm a curvy bride-to-be & found my dream wedding dress – then mum said it made me look fat with a massive floppy belly | The Sun

A BRIDE-T0-BE was described as having a belly down to her knees after trying on her dream wedding dress.

With decorations to sort out and guests invitations to prepare, getting ready for your wedding is certainly not for the faint-hearted – and no one knows it better than one UK bride-to-be.


Appearing on Curvy Brides Boutique, Chloe revealed how she had fallen in love with a stunning fishtail dress with ruffling detailing.

''It was the first dressI tried on and the fact that my mum got quite emotional about me in a wedding dress, I thought this was definitely the style that I wanted to go for.''

Sharing snaps with the two fashion gurus, Jo Cooke and Alison Law, Chloe explained she liked the shape the white garment was giving her.

''I felt slim in it.''

But whilst she might've loved the mermaid style dress, not everyone was so keen for Chloe to bag the garment, as her mum thought it was not the most flattering look.

''It looked like your belly was down to your knees,'' she pointed out.

And Chloe's mum wasn't the only one to struggle to understand why her daughter was so excited about the dress – the show hosts weren't too keen on it either.

''I don't know what Chloe can see that I can't see – maybe it's how she felt it in.

''But right now, I'm saying fishtail is not the way forward for Chloe,'' said Alison.

''We need to show Chloe that that illusion that she's seeing is not a great look,'' Jo agreed, with her entourage saying the bride-to-be needed to hear some ''brutal'' feedback.

Although Chloe was quite fixated on wearing a fishtail style dress, she arrived at the boutique ready to browse and try on other bridal dresses.

''There are dresses here that are gonna make her feel amazing,'' Alison promised.

Fortunately, after some trial and error, the two gurus managed to dig out a dress that left both Chloe and everyone in tears.

Standing in front of a mirror and trying to control her emotions, Chloe said: ''It's amazing, it's incredible.

''This is my dress […] – it's blingy, it's A-line.

''I shocked myself because this is a dress that I thought I would never ever go for.''

Viewers were in love with the final dress too and many took it to comments to share their thoughts.

''The 2 ladies were professional and nice at the same time. Not making her feel bad but to reevaluate her options,'' wrote one fan.

''It’s was more emotionally acceptable for her then the physical look.''

Another agreed, adding: ''They know how to make women with "body issues" feel beautiful – and every bride – no matter her size – should feel beautiful!'
