I’m 60 and my 28-year-old step-granddaughter will marry in May in a very exclusive and expensive Sunday evening venue. The MOB has chosen a custom made navy lace gown (have not seen sketches) and, good for her, she can well afford it. I, on the other hand, cannot afford such an expenditure. In addition, I am at a loss as to what to wear (I’m 5’2″ and carry my weight in the middle) and where to purchase a reasonably priced item, that does not appear “cheap.” Any help is appreciated.
By the way, my flabby arms need to be covered and I need to go with an empire waist. I’m a size 12 with no rear, no waist, a tummy, and I wear a size 38DDD bra. Oh, yes, and I have thin legs.
