2001 and 2015

I came across this inspiring story on and I think it is worth sharing. 

Chioma got married 14 years ago and still fits into her wedding dress!! Celebrity Stylist, Ezinne Chinkata had a chat with her and she shared her impressive story, discussing her fitness regime and what keeps her motivated.

Please read below.

Ezinne Chinkata: When and where did you get married??

Chioma Okovido:We got married in 2001 at St Albert’s Catholic Church Benin City, Edo State.


EC: Did you choose and buy your wedding dress yourself?

CO: Yes, I did.

EC: What was the criteria for your choice?

CO: I have always loved ball wedding gowns even as a child. I knew off shoulders worked well on me, so a combination of the two was it for me.


EC: Tell us about how you came about trying your wedding dress on again.

CO:I was doing a routine cleaning and one of the twins came with a crown and was like mummy who has this? I asked him where he found it, he told me he saw it with a wedding gown (I had forgotten about it). I asked him to bring the box and behold it was my gown. I was excited, quickly took a shower and tried it on. To my surprise it fit and the twins suggested we capture it. I put on some makeup and they started shooting with their phone cameras. My last boy warned that I shouldn’t try it on that it won’t fit because in his words ‘you are fat’. In his world everyone is big and fat, lol.
