Really? The survey was conducted by SlimFast, which means we have to take it with several grains of salt. But really?
Three out of four of my bridesmaids are over 5'8" and under a size 6. My other bridesmaid is petite and curvy. What does this say about me? (No, I'm not a former model.) Did I choose them because they're hot? No. But I am happy that they all look good in the pale green mini I picked out for them.
Choosing bridesmaids is not an easy thing. There are lots of politics involved and some brides end up with an 8-person party because they just can't choose one friend over another. I decided to say "screw it" to convention and chose my best friend from high school, my fiance's sister, and two women that I'm good friends with NOW. No obligations, just people I like.
Whether or not most women are so self-hating as to only stand next to fatties on their big day I can't tell you. But I can tell you that, in general, it's not the bridesmaids people are looking at. It's the bride. Because who's hot enough to upstage marriage?
