A woman has been accused of ‘fat shaming’ after criticising a bride’s wedding dress and saying it looked like a ‘table cloth’.
And she wasn’t the only one – hundreds of women piled on to shame the woman’s choice of wedding dress after the photo was posted on a Facebook group.
Commenters said the dress looked like it was ‘made from curtains’ and that it looked like a ‘nightgown.’
And lots of people said the bride’s friends should have told her not to wear the gown as it was ‘unflattering’ and ‘ugly.’
But now people have defended the bride and said the critics were ‘plus size shaming’ by questioning her choice.
‘Maybe she feels like it’s the only thing she’d be comfortable in… a lot of plus size women in my size and hers tend to get discouraged,’ said one.
‘We should probably talk about how hard it is to find an affordable wedding dress for plus size women that doesn’t look like a smock before we laugh and pretend that this was her dream dress,’ added another.
It was a woman from Norway who shared the photo of the anonymous bride taking a mirror selfie in her chosen dress.
While some accused her of fat shaming, others felt that the criticisms were purely about the dress and not about the bride’s size.
‘Why is it so hard for people to accept the fact that this post is dress shaming not fat shaming.
‘This is a table cloth that would look awful on anyone, she would look absolutely amazing in an empire waist dress,’ said one.
‘This outfit would be shame worthy even if it was on someone that’s a size two. I could careless about her size, the outfit is ugly,’ added another.
Regardless of whether it’s ‘fat shaming’ or dress shaming – we probably all need to try harder to stop shaming women full stop.
