Well, its not really their fault for not carrying your size. Perhaps you should go to a store that you know carry plus sizes.

Yeah I don’t get this either.  I can’t imagine they would have a hard time getting rid of samples when the time comes, so why not have some on hand in larger sizes?

Maybe its because they know that some dresses just dont look right in a larger size.

@Aug8Bride you have got to be kidding.  Whose fault is it then?  Pronovias and Watters both carry up to size 24!

well, you could have called before hand to make sure they carry your size. you can’t just go into a store and expect them to carry all the dresses that you want to try on in your size.

I understand what you are saying. I am a street size 8 and most of the samples were hard to get on or snug. I feel that they should carry samples that would fit the average woman or carry 2 sizes one in a misses size and one in a plus size.

@danadelphia, um I don’t think ONE out of TWELVE is asking too much at all!

maybe this would be your motivation to lose weight. maybe if it were harder for big people to find clothes, they would do something about their health.

@aug8bride: way to be supportive…she didn’t say she expected them to carry all the dresses, all in the right size. But even one in the right size or something close to the right size would have been nice!

In my experience, the samples were usually at least a bridal size 10, if not larger–I didn’t try on a single dress that was a size 6 or smaller. Sorry you had a bad experience, danadelphia 🙁 It’s definitely frustrating getting all excited to try on dresses and then to not be able to see how they would look on you, or even what the dresses look like in person (since they only had 2 of the dresses you printed out)–that’s really disapointing.

Wow.  A size 12 is in way no “big”.  I’m almost 6 ft tall and wear a 10 or 12 and definitely don’t consider myself to be a “big person”.  But I also had issues when it came to trying on gowns.  Are you insinuating that since she’s a size 12 she’s not healthy?
