I was afraid to go dress shopping as well. I wear a size 20 in jeans. Y’know what helped me? Going to (the dreaded) David’s Bridal! They have a book of all the plus-sized dresses and they have everything in every size, so you’re not trying on something teeny tiny and having it clipped to you– they give you your actual size. There was nothing more relaxing/stress-releasing than feeling the zipper go all the way up on every single dress. I ended up trying on like a dozen dresses there and had such fun! I’ve got my dress (just over 3 months to go!) but I still don’t think I would’ve liked trying on dresses in a regular bridal salon.

I don’t know what to tell her, but she and I have similar proportions and I had no problems trying on dresses or finding something that fit. I bought my dress at David’s Bridal, but went to several shops and was able to try on multiple dresses at each one. 

I’m a size 18-22 (depending on cut), 5’3″ and wear size G cup.
