Dresses created are not always equal, in relation to many aspects. Not just talking about the style, materials, and the cut of the dress. Quality is rarely achieved by chance; it is a laborious, deliberate process that takes patience, ingenuity, many sleepless nights, countless modifications and efforts. A fantastic dress requires time and work to be created. You can’t call something a dress if you slap some cloth together at random.
If you’re interested in learning more about this, you may visit this Facebook group, “One dress- shaming”. These strange, amusing, or simply awkward-looking “dresses” are mocked for the sake of entertainment and to educate others about what excellent taste is about.
As you scroll down, take a good, long look at the worst of the worst. Vote for the ones you love or hate the most.
#1 Yesterday in Tjmaxx, I saw something that reminded me of why we were formed as an online group
So I called out to Mary Waldron to discover more about the community, its rise to popularity, and where to draw the line between a good and awful clothing.
“When I noticed the group’s fame growing about 6-7 months after I started it, it was completely unexpected. No, I didn’t expect such a large group, but I guess I should have expected it given how popular Facebook’s “shaming” groups were at the time “she explained to us. “It seems to me that shaming groups in general has the effect of bringing groups of people together because they feel obligated to share their negative experiences with everyone for a good laugh, exactly like when a group of students in school sees a teacher with a really horrible tie and makes some jokes about him. But it’s the same principle on a much larger scale that I believe makes these groups what they are today.”
#2 What did you actually see here?
#3 This dress caught my eye on a wedding photographer’s page and I knew I had to share it with you guys.
#4 You don’t have to worry, ladies, since you too can get the look of a figureless polka dot worm for just $2,790!
There is a reason for such an odd and strange Facebook group name, according to Mary, the founder of “You can’t just slap some fabric together and call it a dress”.
A remark on a post in the group said, “That’s it, I’m wedding dress shameing.” And that was the reason behind naming this group. So she said that it would be nice to be able to credit the person who made that comment.
Though the group was initially named as, “You can’t slap on a white skirt and call it a wedding dress”, as more people joined, I decided to allow additional sorts of dresses. The name change happened only a few months ago, after the group had grown in popularity and I had a larger admin team, and we thought that since we were accepting all types of costumes, we needed a more inclusive name,” she explained.
#5 This was posted on Instagram. Not sure if that’s a butt crack.
#6 Looks like an actual pizza
#7 A diving dress? This raises three questions for me: Why? For whom? And why is it always over $5000?
Completely impractical dresses, in Mary’s perspective, are “very terrible”. “A lot of my attention is drawn to dresses that look like they could come undone at any minute. Nevertheless, outside of the group, I strive to keep an open mind when it comes to fashion because everyone’s taste is different.”
Mary noted that the most essential thing is how you feel when you wear your chosen garment. “At the end of the day, wear whatever makes you happy. Your body is yours to clothe as you want.”
#8 When you don’t have time to do laundry and wear something you found stuffed under your bed.
#9 Haha! Vote for the best dressed one
#10 Please Consider… There are certain parts of this that are Photoshop fails.
#11 Has an aesthetic vibe, isn’t it?
About 60k people belong to the Facebook group, which focuses on shame dresses. Shaming other people or their bodies is a no-no, simply. All faces and identifying information should be covered, the moderators and administrators of the group warn.
In addition, they say that individuals shouldn’t be offended if someone makes fun of a clothing they’ve worn in the past. ‘Stop being so soft,’ they tell you. As a result of this, the group does not accept any form of politics or fancy clothing.
#12 Hmmm it’s Cullen!
#13 Does it look nice to you?
#15 Is this what it means by “Fashion”?
It’s not as simple as grabbing a few random items from your neighborhood thrift store and putting them on to look attractive. Even if confidence is crucial (and we’re all in favor of buying used clothes to conserve the environment), a piece of clothing must be able to stand on its own.
