The decision to wear the Pin Up Girl Ava dress to the Black & White Affair hosted by my husband’s Masonic Grand Lodge was a big one for me. Over and over again I looked at this body, my body, and kept asking the question: Is this too much boob? Is this dress ok? Are WE ready to step out?
Tonight I did.
In this dress, I did.
I’m so happy that I was able to use my favorite bra for this dress. It is the most comfortable, supportive bra I’ve ever owned. I knew that if it happened to peak through in the middle of us tearing up the dance floor, which it did, all that would be shown is a spot of lusciously soft, black lace.
So “the girls” and I stepped out, proudly, in Ava. I love this dress. The XL, for me, fit beautifully. Yes, my boobs were “out”, but if you look at photos of the model wearing the dress, I was showing an equal amount of mine as she did hers. It left enough room in the waist for sitting gracefully and I loved the longer length for getting out of the limo in front of people without worrying about having a “Brittany moment”. The satin isn’t shiny. It’s rich.
I pulled the front of my hair into pin up appropriate rolls and left the crown and back portion down.
I had a wonderful time with my dapper husband, our friends and family and all the other Masons in attendance because the entire night, I felt beautiful! Isn’t it all about being able to truly be happy with me and how I look? To not just glance, but to really LOOK in the mirror . . . and be happy?
I was. What a night.
