I’ve been stalking these boards to see the gorgeous full figured brides and the dresses they’ve chosen to try to get some ideas and so I figured I’d return the favor. I found two, totally different style that I fell in love with, was worried I’d find nothing and while it was challenging to find bridal salons that carried plus sizes, I’m thrilled with the dresses I found. I’ll need to make a decision quickly (yikes!), but in the meantime…
Maggie Sottero: Lorie – Size 22 dress (I need the 24 and the bust was MASSIVE, this one will need alterations)
And David’s Bridal: Size 22 (need 24) dress # 9T3039 with the bow tucked in and a sash instead (not a fan of the bow).

Aw, how AWESOME do you look???
I am leaning towards dress one, it gives a wonderful sillhouette!

Thank you! I am too and despite the fact that they are both under my initial budget, dress one is 3x the price of dress 2… I hate to even admit that I’m letting that play a role in my decision making process. I just have to keep reminding myself, you only get married once- make the right choice… Oi.

@happyeverafter: Dress #1. I adore the lace!
I like the way the top of dress 2 fits you, but the skirt is just overwhelming. Although I hear ya on the price difference. 🙂

Thoughts on dress 1 for a destination wedding? Isla Mujeres in March… Thinking I can probably pull it off with bare feet on the beach. Love love love both of these, im being so wishy washy. I need to just take the reigns and make that final call!

I like #1 because I think it makes your body look great. I think Dress #2 makes you look too short, it doesn’t give you much of a torso. Are you very petite? I just am not a fan of that empire waist on you, I think you look very short. Dress #1 elongates you.

Perfect for a destination wedding!
I think you have to go with what you really love- if that is the first dress, and it is below initial budget- GET IT!!
