My visit to the bridal shop yesterday (the one I mentioned in another post) was NOT GOOD. When I called last week, the lady said they carry a large selection of plus size. So I was pretty excited driving the 30 minute drive there (a town I never go to haha).
Needless to say.. I was very disappointed in this place. Not only was the shop pretty horrible to look at she had TWO plus size dresses in her entire stock. Both of which I did not like at all.
So needless to say that was an hour and a half wasted not to mention gas. So my cousin (moh) and I decided to go back to David’s Bridal. I found several gowns that I saw online that were never available in my size now in my size. So I pulled about 5 and tried them on.
I found two that I really like, but I did not make any decision because I want to keep looking. So I have a couple pictures of the ones I did want to take pictures of. I will go back in a few weeks to try on more. But for right now, it’s looking up!
Here ya go for those of us out there that love pictures hehe
Sorry ahead of time if they come out larger than expected.
This is a full lace dress with a pretty open back. I have never tried on a full lace and was very surprised at how great it looked. This is a champagne/ivory (which I do not like, I would prefer the white). It’s really pretty, but this size was skin tight on me (I had a body shaper and the torso bra on) and doesnt really flatter anything on me. I am curious how my real size will fit on me. Will it still be alittle bulky on the belly? I don’t really like how it looks in this picture but I really like the lace and sparkly (ness) that’s going on. And on the white it’s even more sparkly hehe
This one I’ve been seeing and thought it was cute. Having it on It fit just right. It’s an ivory and a weird taffeta material that felt like papertowel almost. Can’t really explain.. almost cotton but not really. I think the dress would be better if the bow wasn’t there and had just a little blingy belt. But that’s just me.
This dress I have been eyeing every time I have gone to David’s Bridal. It has everything I want. Flowy light weight bottom, bling, and rusched sweet heart top. This was a size 14 and the entire back was open so the consultant held it in the back while my cousin took the picture. I really like this dress. I’m not completely sold on the “bling” because its not the sparkly bling its more ivory/gold tone.
So we’re getting closer ladies! I would love you guys input on these dresses!

@PoeticDoveInLA: Oh my goodness, I *love* the last dress! It is gorgeous, and looks fantastic on you! Very flattering – it really accents your little waist 🙂

I tried on that second dress at DB too and made a similar comment about the fabric! I believe my exact words to my mother was that the material felt cheap! I don’t know what it is, but I just couldn’t get past the material, even if I loved the dress!

I love the last dress as well! It seems like A-lines works well on your body. // You were so smart to have worn a body shaper. I tried on a few dresses that made my belly so obvious and my sister insisted that if I had spanx on, it will look different. I really doubt that!

I have been wearing my Kymaro body shaper alot lately. I just like how it feels and my stomach doesnt roll over my pants and has that little bump in my shirts. I feel alittle more confident and more “put together” in it. And since it goes to my hips its even better. I do want to get a bottom shaper for my thighs, hips and tummy to also go with it. Just to make it all smooth for when I put the tarso bra on since I won’t be wearing the Kymaro one with my dress (it has sleeves haha).
But yes, I do love the third dress. In my size it’s $950. so with tax and alterations I’m looking at over $1100 and in my head that’s my outdoor patio remodel. lol
So it’s a big decision! haha

I love the 3rd one on you, but I REALLY love the 2nd one on you the most. I said “WOW” out loud when I saw it. It’s so pretty and it’s different. You don’t even look plus size!

Seriously, the 3rd dress is THE ONE!

@PoeticDoveInLA: As most of the other posters have said the third one looks great on you. However, I also really love the 2nd one. I think a blingy belt would look great with it!

@PoeticDoveInLA: I tried on the same one as you, the one that’s the weird taffeta material! It was SO weird, I think it felt like a cheap bed sheet! lol I couldn’t get over how weird it felt, not wedding dress material!
