- Wedding: October 2011
Hopefully it’s okay to post the name of the company in the title…anywho, I’m having 4 bridesmaids, all of different sizes, heights, and body types. I’m having everyone pick out their own dress, as it seems impossible to find a style that would work on everyone.
I’ve decided to go with Eden bridal, mostly because everyone gave the thumbs up to their page. My slight dilemma on whether this will work has to do with their plus size dresses, and how plus size they really are.
One of my bridesmaids is very tall, 6’2″ i think, and very um, large? She said her standard clothing size is 28 to 30, though that’s street size and she’s unsure about the size of dresses. I know Eden says they go up to 28, but I don’t know if those measurements correlate with regular sizes, or if they have their own measurement style (I know for another wedding I’m involved in, our sizes are 5 sizes larger than our regular size).
It was intelligently suggested that I contact a retail establishment that sells their dresses to find out if they fit or can be altered to fit a street size 28 to 30, but I wanted to find out if anyone has any experience already.
Oh, and I attached the dress I think will look nice on her. She likes it a lot, though another bridesmaid and my mom said they weren’t sure. I figure the more opinions, the better.
