However I caught a preview on TLC this afternoon for an upcoming episode of Say Yes To the Dress and they featured a heavier woman and just those few seconds were embarrassing to watch. Not that being heavy is a bad thing but you would have thought it was the end of the world how the consultants in the store couldn’t/wouldn’t find anything to fit this poor bride, and they showed a good handful of dresses, and making her out to be the cause of the problem. She of course looked like she wanted the floor to swallow her because they couldn’t fit her into anything, as everything was way too small. I’d hate to be in her shoes or anyone else of her size. And she really didn’t appear *that* heavy to begin with that it should be any issue. Just goes to show how society, and the wedding industry no less, is obsessed with thinner women and that a woman of a certain size or larger has no business getting married because the stores don’t stock proper sizes to fit everyone when trying them on. Trying on a dress, since it is a major expensive purchase, is one of the most important times when a store should have every size in stock.

I watched that show last night, and I thought it was just like the other one; the girls were just bigger. I don’t think that I have seen the preview that you are talking about. But I am sure they just took the drama parts to make the commercial.

I hope that the episode itself is not as miserable for the bride as the previews made it out to be!

I am a street size 12. I have a 36DD chest. In bridal I am a plus size. A size 18 as a matter of fact. It was miserable trying on bridal gowns until I went to a huge store that had a set of larger sample sizes. I watched the show too and I remember feeling the same way when a dress wouldn’t slide over my hips and therefore I couldn’t try it on. I like my body. I am not over weight but I have a kick-ass hour glass shape and the bridal industry made me hate myself for a short moment in time. I couldn’t imagine what someone who is larger would have to go through.
