She picked me to be her maid of honor. We are going to pick out bridesmaid dresses tonight. I have never worn a dress or skirt before... I consider myself to be a bit of a tom boy lol. Any tips for wearing a dress for the first time? How long does it take to get used to wearing a dress?

When sitting, watch the skirt of the dress, it can sometimes become uncomfortable and pull if you sit wrong. You can either cross your legs at the ankle, sit turned to the side slightly with your legs together (your legs will be towards one of the corners of the chair), or sit with your knees together and your legs turned slightly in. The slight angle of you calves keeps your knees together pretty well. If it's a long dress, you don't have to worry about sitting as much but you do have to be careful with walking. Make sure the hem of the skirt doesn't get caught underneath the front of your foot when walking forwards (the dress will tear or you'll kiss the ground) or when your walking backwards (your ass with connect with aforementioned ground). Try to watch your posture as well. Depending on the dress, shitty posture can adds pounds and make the dress look awkward. Use the ballerina idea. There's a thread connected to the base of your spine that runs up your back and pulls your body to an upright position. Your shoulders are relaxed, but your back is straight. Ummm if it's strapless be aware that it can slip so watch that. Especially if you're a Tom boy. Dresses weren't made for playing in (unfortunately) so if you do it, do it carefully. Most importantly in my opinion, be yourself. Confidence is the best when wearing dressy clothing. Plus that extra confidence makes it really easy to laugh it off should a wardrobe malfunction occur. Have fun! :)1
