A bride-to-be has been chastised after revealing on Facebook that she was considering forcing her soon-to-be stepdaughter to wear shapewear to the wedding.
The bride-to-be wrote that it was difficult to find a dress for her future stepdaughter because “nothing fit her,” even “big girl youth sizes.”
Five days before the wedding, she still had not found a dress for the 9 year old so she turned to Facebook again for advice.
“Definitely not a body-shaming post,” she wrote, seemingly anticipating criticism, “how do y’all feel about a nine-year-old wearing a body shaper (girdle)?”
“She’s a plus-size kid. And her dress is a little snug. I figure why not try a body shaper to smooth out some of the edges to give that perfect fit,” she wrote.
So what do you think. Was this woman completely wrong for suggesting a 9 year old wear a girdle to her wedding? Or was the bride-to-be justified in her request?
Let’s talk about it.
