I was a BM in my MOH’s wedding a couple of years ago. When we were dress shopping, I had a horrible time trying on dresses because of the size of my chest (36H). I wasn’t able to get the top of my dress up before ordering, and I also had to sign a waiver. I was really really nervous about it… But, after my frist and only fitting, I was very happy, and comfy! 

I am third from the left.

Youe dress looks like a flattering shape and material. Try not to be too hard on yourself!

Prayers and hugs your way! Sounds like you had kind of a crappy experience, which IMO shouldn’t ever happen!! 

The dress looks beautiful, though! 🙂 I bet something like spanx will be able to help, too, if the fit is borderline when it comes in.

I honestly would be very concerned about he fact that you’ve ordered a dress that may not fit.

I am plus sized and tried on a size ten sample of the wedding gown I ordered. I was very concerned about the chest of the dress, and I turned out to be correct. The bodice of my gown did not fit me properly, and, if I had tried on the dress in my size, I would  have been able to see that the dress I chose was not the right style for me.

I would at least have a plan “B” for your situation. I ordered an additional yard of the fabric from which my dress was made, just in case we needed to build up the bust portion of my dress. Ultimately, however, it wouldn’t have looked good even if we had decided to do that.

I had girls from a 6 – a 16 and it wasnt easy!

But that dress would look good on you hun from what youve described.
