So…where on earth can we find a wonderful formal dress for my sister? There are so few she can try on and it’s scary to order one online. I want her to feel beautiful and special on “my” special day.
I have tried Macy’s, Dillards, Nordstrom. David’s was not a hit.

Do you know what size she is? Have you tried Alfred Angelo? All of their Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are available up to size 30W.

Yup, we did. They had very few to try on 🙁 We may have to take a chance and hope! Thanks for the suggestion.

I’m a size 30 in Alfred Angelo dresses, and I ordered my bridesmaids dress from them without trying it on and it actually looks alright.. I can try to send you a photo if you’d like.. Their sizes really run true to size, as my actual wedding dress is through them and then my bridesmaid dress for another wedding is through them.
I also know other brands that are good for plus size girls.. You can try Eden – they’re pretty true to size also.

I had an Alfred Angelo dress when I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man for my friend’s wedding, and it actually ran big!
I was very nervous because I had to order online, but we measured me and ordered according to the website. The dress was far too big, but it worked out perfectly because my seamstress was able to taylor it to me. 🙂

@Shawno: Sparkle bridal in Sacramento specializes in plus size. I have not been, so I’m not sure how big their bridesmaids section is.
