I went dress shopping at Vera’s – it was the first store I went to and I had a great experience!  I think I worked with Kelsey – she made me feel super comfortable and relaxed (which is great, because my mom was making me feel the opposite of that!)  I was about an 8 in wedding dress size when I went there and I remember trying on a lot of size 10 gowns.  I know that doesn’t really answer your question, but I would suggest you call them and ask what sizes they carry.  I did that for a few shops around where I live as I had heard they only carried really tiny sizes.  I think they are fairly used to questions like that.

I also went to Premiere Couture while I was in Madison.  They didn’t have as much selection, but they had really unique gowns.  The gowns were way more fashion forward than I was looking for, but the woman who owns the shop is fantastic.  She was very friendly & helpful & made me very comfortable.  (I’m not a girly girl so the idea of dress shopping slightly terrified me)
