So Graduation dress hunting should be fun, right?
BIG THUMBS DOWN
I thought I had found the perfect dress but three weeks later and I’m starting to think the outfit is not special enough and doesn’t suit my physique. Here is the dilemma; I may be an Anorexic in recovery but I lived my life in wearing clothes that would become bigger and bigger for me and show off only parts like my collar bone or hip bone that I wanted to show.
I now have a ‘normal BMI’ and my body shape has changed A LOT!
I look in the mirror and I am unsure of the body I see. I don’t see a completed body but fragments of it. No matter how hard I focus my eyes, squint, do double takes, catch my reflection out. I don’t see a full body but parts of it. This is very frustrating when trying to buy a dress online. I don’t know what suits me. I am of course going out to celebrate after the ceremony so my dress won’t be hidden by those drab cloaks they make us wear.And so the quest for a dress continues.
WISH ME LUCK

You could go to a store and try on dresses of a similar style…or try to find a really good seamstress and have a fabulous dress made for you. 🙂 (and congrats on graduating!!)
