Okay so i am now trying the fit and flair thing… i found this dress, i LOOOOOVE ti, its in their catalogue on a plus size woman, its on their website on a womans size… I called around to see where I can try this dress on at… no DB salon in the greater Phoenix area… hello???? the 5th biggest city in the US (or somewhere up there lik ethat) has it in a womans size? I am so upset!
This is the dress…

the biggest one i could find was a size 10… are you kidding me??? I am just so dissapointed:( but this dress I need to let go. its not fair (yea i will take some cheese to go with this whine) …
anyhow I just don’t think its fair they advertise this dress for a Womans size if they are not going to cary a womans sample:(

Can’t you go try it on and have them clip as best as possible to see what it would look like and then they can order in your size. By the way I love the dress.

That really sucks :(. DB had a lot of larger sizes, but it seems like their designer collections and some of their styles seemed to stop at an 8. Not helpful for all of us :/.

@Kcoleybear: uhm, i wish! i seriously do wish. But I cannot buy a dress I cannot try on, its just that. The size 10 if htey clip it, it wont even hide my hips (where I carry my weight. here is me in a size 18 fit and flair… But my maine complaint is why advertise a “womans” size dress if you are not going to carry the dress in a womans size… Its my hips, which makes it very hard for a fit and flair.
I do think they have a great womans selection, but THIS is the dress I wanna try on… anyhow, I just need to get over it, or perhaps travel a litttle bit. Maybe I will try Tucson or Flagstaff and see if they have DB and if they have the dress in my size. It could be worth the drive (a few hours to either one) here is one straight on so you can see my hips, but do you see my bootie? its nuts! LOL this dress is a size 18 and it fit prefectly EVERYWHERE but i had to wear 2 pairs of spanks (in a size too small LOL) and i wiggled into this dress from the bottom. I love this dress, but I really wanna try on the DB one.

@Ronneykay: Va-va-voom! You look hot hot hot in that dress!
I’m sorry about DB, I’ve heard alot of crappy stuff about them, which is a shame because they seem to be only salon that has bridal dresses at “reasonable” prices.
Any store out of town have it? Maybe its worth a day trip to a few towns over?

Ugh, I’m so sorry dear…I’m basically the biggest DB cheerleader ever because I had a great experience with them, but this is really sucky of them. They need to have their selection of plus-size gowns in the store if they’re going to advertise them…and it’s really crappy if they don’t…

@FutureMrsBPB: Thanks, yes, i have been there and found one I like… http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Taffeta-Lace-Halter-Gown-with-Side-Drape-9V3194_Bridal-Gowns-Shop-By-Size-Plus-Sizes
and i’m still having dreams about this one… My experience was a good one. I just want to try on THAT One…
I found out though they have a store in Tucson. so I will call them tomorrow to see if they have it in my size. Its a 2 hour drive, so I may be going there on Tuesday, IF they have it in at least a size 20 (my hips suck)… So we wll see, but still…
I think if you advertise a dress in a certain size you should have it, I even looked on their website and tried to find an email address or a customer service address so i could email them about my delimma, but alas i didn’t find it… perhaps I am blind?
