YOU ARE THE ADVICE COLUMNIST: A Terrible Bridesmaid Dress

The dress just does not look good, too much fabric, one bare arm, shows everything and no shape.

What should I do about a hideous bridesmaid's dress? My cousin is getting married in April. She picked a dress online that is one of the few that comes in a wide range of sizes. There are many plus size maids and one thin maid. I have a curvy body neither thin nor plus size. We recently had an appointment to try on the dresses. On every maid the dress is extremely unflattering! The silhouette is straight up and down, nothing that gives the body any shape. It not only showed every lump and bump it it's very long and needs alterations. I voiced my concerns but was ignored. I know plus size women are use to settling on ill fitting garmets and did not listen to my suggestions. The dress just does not look good, too much fabric, one bare arm, shows everything and no shape. I need to order the dress this week to get it in time but I am having a hard justifying spending money on something I hate! What should I do?
