Im going tomorrow to a bridal shop here that carries Pronovias. I originally thought no one in my state carried this line, but after I called around I finally found a place! Ive heard the fabric feels different on pronovias gowns, so I was wondering bees, whats the fit like?? Was the quality good? Any pics of pronovias gowns you tried on or purchased are welcome too. Thanks bees!!

@Barbiestylez: I am wearing a pronovias gown. The quality is very good. The fit is very accurate to what they post in the size chart. My dress is the Ubis, and she is in for alterations right now. The only alerations I have to have done is the length, co again the sizing according to their chart is accurate. The boning is really well done, and the fabrics are nice. I think the only thing that detracts from my dress is the fact that is very heavy, but it has 7 layers. Overall, I am very happy to be a pronovias bride.

I tried on tons of Pronovias gowns on my first dress shopping trip! The one thing that I noticed right away about Pronovias was the awesome structure that all of the dresses had. Every one of their dresses has a built-in corset that was super supportive and really flattering!
Also, all of the Pronovias gowns I tried were super lightweight and easy to walk in. Overall, you could just really tell they were well constructed! I ultimately chose a dress by a different designer, but Pronovias gowns were always a front runner.
Here is a thread I had started about two Pronovias dresses I tried: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/help-which-pronovias-gown-to-choose-pics#axzz2nDt0XJtP
Good luck tomorrow!

Absolutely amazing quality. There is so much support and structure in my ballgown that my 36F boobs don’t need a bra! And the material is very luxurious and absolutely well-made. I bought the Ocelada (a sample dress, too) and I couldn’t be happier.

I really love my dress, I’ve started several threads on the Bee because their dresses are great for plus sized brides in my opinion. And they are well made – my alterations seamstress raved about the INSIDE of my dress, how well constructed it was. Congratulations! I’ve got two weeks from today to wear mine (OMG).

@Barbiestylez: how did it go with pronovias? i love pronovias. as soon as i put my first one on, i knew it was the name for me. i had it narrowed down to 3, all pronovias. i found that they fit “real women” a bit better and yes, the quality was there with a reasonable price tag.
did you have any luck?

@mypinkshoes: thats my plan. I know it sounds crazy, but I didnt expect to fall in love with a ballgown. I always saw myself in a sexy mermaid that showed my curves. So I feel like I need to wear both. My family/FI totally gets me and thats really my personality. Im either done up with big hair, makeup, heels, tight clothes… Or Im in yoga pants LOL — so my wedding day I will definitely be done up. My as well do it up if I can!!:)
