Double Amputee Wears Dress For First Time On Wedding Day
A double amputee wore a dress for the first time on her wedding day - after a lifetime of hiding her old prosthetics was over thanks to state-of-the-art new legs. Katarina Floridia, 27, from Ashland, Massachusetts, had always been embarrassed about her situation, covering her legs even on sweltering hot beach days or trips away with friends and family. But thanks to her new legs - which were overseen by A Step Ahead Prosthetics to match her skin color and accommodate heels - Katarina was able to make her dream come true by walking down the aisle in confidence with her father on her arm. In an emotional moment ahead of the June 8 wedding - and which Katarina shared on her wedding day to help tell her story - the double amputee tried on A Step Ahead’s prosthetics for the very first time. She was brought to tears as she tried on the specially designed prosthetics, revealing they immediately gave her the confidence to show offer her legs and walk down the aisle in front of those dearest to her.
