To my chubbier friends

Our counterparts across the world to some extend do not have an issue finding a plus size gown while we, we are looked down upon when we enter a bridal store. "Ap kay size may nahi hai" " Ye he design miley ga", "Aur nahi hai" 

It isn't the bigger shops that cause us this pain, its the smaller vendors. While I fit into most Frontier Raaz size the ones that I didn't or the fellow chubbier brides beside me didn't they would happily and quietly fit it on with a belt.

 It was at shops like Chhabra 555 where I got quiet a shock. I had gone with my friend to get her lehenga for my wedding and she is a bit like me, probably a little heavier but a normal chubbish girl. It was there where we heard "Ma'am hum ap k size mein nahi banatey" then they started showing us old styles which our mothers used to wear claiming "yahi aaye ga". We decided to chuck lehenga and started looking at this beautiful chiffon Saree "Ma'am ye ap k upar teek nahi lagay gi ap koi crepe ya silk ki lelo" I felt like slapping that sales man. As I approached the manager to complain I found out he was saying something similar to another girl!!

These stupid salesman and idiotic people who idealize the perfect Bride image are @!#$@#!!##!

So my dear Chubby friends don't worry because these people will still be sitting and spending their life in their shops while your out there getting married to the man of your dreams, to the man who loves you no matter what, to the man who loves you because your not all sticks and bones.

  2. I have faced this few times during Eid shopping. The sales girl will take dress away from my hand to verify it is my size & I won't rip their delicate material while trying. But then other sales people never gave me hard time about size
