Reddit user u/NotForKeepsThrowAway was asked to be a bridesmaid at her friend's wedding, but when she got diagnosed with Cancer her bridesmaid dress size changed significantly. After being fat-shamed by her so-called friend, she dropped out of the wedding altogether.
I, 24F, have been friends with ‘April’, 27F, for close to 15 years now. We met at gymnastics as kids and formed a close bond. It seemed natural for us that I would be a bridesmaid just as we had always planned. The wedding was delayed a lot due to Covid and then I received big news.
When I was diagnosed with cancer I was lucky that we caught it early so I had surgery followed by chemotherapy. April was supportive throughout all this, she made appointments for dress shopping to fit around my schedule.
