i have been trawling this site for months but felt i had to join after reading your post…am in a similar situation, except I moved away from rotherham to Spain! It is weird looking at planning when all your Bessie’s are only available on Skype! 🙁 so I sort of get where you are coming from on this! 

On a personal note, I bet I can guess a few bridal shops around s yorks where you would get the response you did, I am sorry you had this experience and please believe me when I say not all Yorkshire folk are like this! I actually came back over to find my dress as the choice over here is somewhat limited. I went to a couple of really lovely places, where I know they catered for plus size also Cos there were people being fitted when I was having my appointment. it’s bliss in Doncaster is good, they also have a shop in rotherham somewhere I think, also I have heard good things about blushes in Sheffield on London road. Also there is Georgian house bridal, in Doncaster, where I ended up buying my dress from! I can’t help with the type of dress you want, mine is slim a line, but Good luck with your search, I hope you have a better experience than the first shop!

@TheFutureMrsMayo:  I’m so sorry that someone could even find the audacity to say such cruel words…what I would suggest is calling in advance to see if they have a decent plus sized selection prior to goin.  That’s what I did (size 16) and I saved myself some embarrassment that way!
