I have been asked to be a bridesmaid at my best friends wedding. I am very pleased to be asked but am struggling to find something to wear and I really don't want to let me friend down.
I have had a significant illness and have put on weight that I am keen to loose but this is unlikely to happen before the big day. At the moment I am a size 18 5'7. Shape wise I have a big bust, a defined waist but a big tummy. My arms are not great.
The bride is happy to go with whatever style works for me (thank goodness) however two other bridesmaids will need to follow the theme. Ideally jewel tones dresses and not too bridesmaidy as it is a laid back affair. If anyone has any suggestions I would be so so grateful. Thank you.
