Hi Bees! I had a great dress shopping experience today after being super nervous about none of the samples fitting. The shop had a few size 16 samples, some 22s that were clipped to give me an idea, and a few 12s that went on enough that I could get an idea of the front. The owner of the shop was a really sweet lady who didn’t make me feel uncomfortable at all. I was also surprised how well strapless worked with my larger chest. Boning does wonders.
This is the one that I’m 99% sure I’m purchasing! It’s so light and airy. Much better than my original consignment satin dress for a July wedding!

dmdbee: So glad to hear you had fun! I had almost the exact same experience: terrified to shop, terrified that nothing would fit, especially over my large bust, assumption that strapless would be all sorts of horrible and then I went in and had a blast and found strapless to be way more flattering than I thought!
I love the dress you’re considering!! I think the lace around the bottom looks so delicate and pretty!

Very pretty! Your waist looks so tiny! Perfect for a summer wedding.
