Most designers will not send (or maybe it’s that the bridal salons do not order) plus size samples, however, there are plenty of high-end designers who will make their dresses in sizes sometimes as high as 30+ (yes you read that right, 30+), so as a 20 you should be fine.  Call around to the boutiques who carry the designers you like and ask them in advance if they have samples you might be able to try on. 

As a solid 20 when I went shopping for the first time, I could get into most size 12 samples, to at least gauge the style on me.  But there were few shops that had designer gowns in large sample sizes.

I think Monique Lhullier makes up to 24….but many of the fine designers will customize sizes.  I looked at dresses by Watters, Rivini, Amsale, and hmmm…I can’t remember who else, but most went up to a 22 or 24 (with upcharges for sizing). 

My dress (yay! I finally bought one this weekend!) is by Lea-Ann Belter and she basically customizes size, so large sizes are no problem.

For an extra price Vera Wang will do sizes over 12, I saw a plus sized bride ordering hers at the flagship when I was there.
