As you try on tons of quince dresses, you might be feeling a little self-conscious about your body and your weight. You might wish to lose a few pounds for the occasion, or wish your tummy was a little flatter. Well, hold on a sec! Remember that there is no such thing as the perfect body. Celebrating your quince is about celebrating YOU, just the way you are.
If you are suffering from the gordita syndrome, listen up! Any one of us with LATIN in her blood is a very special breed of woman called LATINA. We come in many shapes, sizes, and styles. A lot of us are fuller figured, curvier, and average size 12 and up. I know, because I am one of them! So are my abuela, mamá, tías, primas, y sobrinas and most Hispanicas I know.
When you are looking for your ideal quince dress, dont get depressed if you try on a size 10 and its a bit snug. Try the next size up until you feel comfortable. Dont just buy the dress and decide that youll lose weight to fit in it that's the wrong motivation. And if you do lose weight before your party, you can always get the dress that once fit comfortably tailored.
