Woman Shamed For Wearing Dress That Was “Too Sexy” For Wedding

Liz Krueger is fitness blogger who recently shared a story about how she was “shamed” and “bullied” for her choice of outfit at a wedding.

The blogger had gone along to the wedding as a friend’s “plus one”, wearing a dress that made her feel “pretty”. As she goes on to explain, her fellow invitees did not respond in kind.

While the dress code at the wedding seemed to accommodate all kinds of attire, ranging from “dressy” to “baseball hats and jeans”, Liz claims she was singled out for dressing “too sexy”.

One woman told her that she was “embarrassed for her”, and another deliberately spilt a beer down her arm.

In her Instagram post, Liz said:

“If only I knew that choosing this dress for a wedding on a 90 degree day meant so many women would be outrightly rude to me, and even come up behind me slap my ass as I’m standing alone. As quote ” it was a dare from her friends, bc I was a target.” And then proceed to spill a full beer spilt down my arm?????? Just one of maaaaany acts of kindness of the night! Yup. That happened. Good thing for thick skin, being able to laugh at things and not take it personally, and good friends/hubby by my side ????#adultsarebullystoo Regardless, we had one heck of s fun night and no “grown” women’s comments/glares could bring me down as a wedding guest:)”
Liz also told Yahoo style:

“I laughed it off and tried to just act like it didn’t bother me, because I felt humiliated. I felt like I was in an adult version of ‘Mean Girls.

I hope that my situation can help someone else and let other women know it’s not OK to bring each other down or harass each other. I want to inspire women and build women up. It’s hard to do when they are tearing you down.”

We so chill 😎

When asked about all the people who thought her dress was “too sexy”, she had this to say:

“I respect their opinion. If they think it’s too sexy, they don’t have to wear it. I am very confident in my skin, as over the years I’ve had to overcome a lot of body issues, and I’m finally to a place where I enjoy wearing fun dresses. … I’m a kind, genuine person, who doesn’t do it for attention.”
