Please go to the store and try dresses on.  You will find one you love.  I saved time by researching the designers the stores carried and calling ahead of time to ask if they have that particular style and in what size.

 

As for styles, personally I found these to be flattering: a-line, empire waist, asymmetrical waist and ones with the princess v thing in front.  Also, I found dresses with a slight sweetheart (super easy for a seamstress to add later) were flattering.

I’m plus sized and I went to Davids Bridal and tried on 10 dresses if not more. Go to the store and see what looks good on you…i’m buying one online though just because i love it and can’t get it out of my head and need to try it on to make sure it isn’t the one

@johnitta…I would highly recommend scheduling an appt at David’s Bridal. Even if you don’t buy from there, they have a variety of wedding dresses in plus sizes and it will give you an idea of what you like and how certain styles will look on your figure. Also, you can get your measurements done by the seamstress there so if you decide to order online, you know what size you will need.
