I agree I think it will be super flattering once its in your size.

I also love that it has a little bit-o-sass.

I am also a plus size bride, let me tell you almost all the dresses I tried on I couldn’t get the dress zipped up all the way or not at all.  I am a street size 22/24.  Even the dress I chose I have no idea what the back will look like on me, all I have is the picture from the actual dress maker’s web site.  Only good thing is my dress is being custom fit so there shouldn’t be to much for alterations going on.

I think it’s beautiful on you!! Once you get it tailored and fit to your size, it’s going to be even more gorgeous. Don’t stress, you look amazing. πŸ™‚

I think you look awesome! =) Be confident! and stop looking! hehe! 

I wish I could show you the pic of the “sample” I tried on, fell in love with, and cried in! lol It was about 5 sizes too small! When I saw it compared to how it fits now, I about DIED! lol I am so happy with my decision though! I am sure you will be with yours too!

That gown definately does not fit you; however, I can see the vision that your mother and your grandmother saw. I can safely say that you will look beautiful in it, once you get the correct size. This gown does look like it was made for you. I know that is hard for you to think right now, but I am sure once it arrives in your size and you get to try it on, you will see what everyone else saw; a glowing bride to be πŸ™‚

I think it’s a fantastic dress and looks really good on you, even if the size isn’t right!

Don’t worry about the feelings though – I think it can be a normal reaction after getting a dress. I remember after the initial feelings of “yes!!! I got my dress!!” I started having doubts and worries (because I had the opposite problem of the samples being too big and the extra material was very misleading) and was a bit sad about the whole dress shopping experience being over.

Remember there was a good reason you bought the dress, and as many people here say it looks great on you, it must be the right one πŸ™‚

It’s a beautiful dress! I know it’s hard buying a dress without seeing it perfectly fitted to you – but the style/shape won’t change that much, and it looks stunning. πŸ™‚

@aat108: it’s gorgeous and once you can confidently zip up the back you’ll see it, too!  I have the same problem – I’m a street size 14/16 and just not good at ‘picturing’ myself in things very well… which sucks when so very many of the stores only seem to have smaller samples to try.

I can’t wait to see updates when it comes in  – stunning!

I wasn’t able to get anything that wasn’t atleast a 16 on my body (unless it was a ball gown, but that wasn’t what I was looking for) and I’m a street size 16. It was annoying. I went to one store and most of their, if not all of their samples were a size 16 so I was happy. I think it was my hips. I don’t know what my dress will look like on me fully, so I understand your concern. I’m a little nervous as well. I plan on getting good foundations.
