I enjoy wearing long jean skirts with nice designs. They are from style j online. They have the bigger sizes. I get alot of compliments.

Congrats on finding an awesome dress!

I would love to wear more dresses, especially the super cute summer dresses about to come in season! I just don't feel comfortable in them yet.

Love dresses.. but NEVER wear them. I choose to wear clothing that covers me up... maybe when I reach goal I'll start wearing them to show off my legs :)

I don't wear them, but it makes me feel pretty good to see my wife in one.

they are so much cooler in the summer. Once it gets really hot here, that's pretty much all I wear.

In the cooler temps, I wear many of the same dresses - just adding boots and a cardigan or blazer.

I love dresses. Just bought a gorgeous sun dress from Lane Bryant. Looks great even if I am still a 16.

i love dresses, but my outdoor lifestyle makes them mostly inappropriate.

4/22/12 8:24 P

Oh boy - I did not expect to get that many responsed. Well first of all: I love waring skirts! And this dress i will most likely ever only ware one time. But I feel very good in it and I think those who know me see how much better I feel now.

So thank you all for your response and I tell you all of you who do not like dresses that waring a skirt is a good start and better than having wet pants all the time when itis wet outside! That is I think why I ware them in winter all the time.

Have a great Sunday niht,

The older I got the more uncomfortable dresses became ~ I still wear them occasionally.

I love dresses and skirts. My legs are my best feature, so I love showing them off, especially with all of the muscle I have now! Besides, it's so easy to just throw on a soft, comfy dress in the morning for work.

LOVE dresses. I am really aiming to be able to wear a cute sundress this summer!

I NEVER wear dresses. I love them (looking at them) I even look pretty decent in one, but after highschool, I never again wore a dress unless I was going to church or something. Chalk it up to having to wear a dresss everday 10 months at a time since I was 6.
I own 4 dresses.
Im going to sell two of them in May.
I feel naked in a dress.Unless is is an ankle length then it's ok (but that's because Im wearing capris beneath)

I LOVE a good looking great-fitting dress! My closet is a wonderful array of ones from casual beachy-summer dresses to more professional dresses and then a few that can do double duty with the right accessories!

I grew up a tomboy and hated dresses (I am old enough that in my elementary school years dresses were required for school, the rule changed as I enter middle school).

Now I love wearing them, three reasons. I work in a stock room so my work attire is pretty grubby and it is nice to dress up a bit, my DH likes me to wear them, they are much more comfortable in the heat.

Hate dresses, especially sleeveless ones! I have a lot of loose arm skin, and sagging skin around my knees, so I can't show my legs either.

Congrats on your weight loss and new dress size!

Give up everything you love, and everything that tastes good = weight loss! Simple as that!

I love dresses. I am now starting to fit into some sizes I missed out on for so long. Perfect time of the year to break out some girly dresses.

I love dresses, but I have issues finding dresses that fit or are aprropiate. I'm only 5'0 so most dresses are too long, and the short dresses are going-out-clubbing short, which I am not comfortable wearing whether I'm 150lbs or 110lbs.

Hello you all out there,

most of us share things that went bad. I have something positive to say today:
I went dress shopping with my boyfriend yesterday, since we will attend the Grad Student Ball next Friday. I bought not only an amazing dress I look so much better in than I would have before sparkpeople but I also bought it in size 10 not 12 or 14. It is amazing how just looking what you eat makes such a big difference. I only really lost 7pounds so fat but I truly look like it is much more and Loose10 the book is helping me a lot too!

Try it!
