Hello full figured lovelies! I have been a stay at home mom for more than 7 years. I admit that I spend my days in sweats and yoga pants and either Old Navy tank tops, or long sleeve v-necks, depending on the season. Not because I want to, but because it’s what I can afford. My wedding is in 2 months and I really really really want a super cute, sexy dress to wear for dinner with the family the night before the wedding. Can anyone recommend a site/store where I can find something stylish, yet affordable? I used to work at Torrid, but I’m looking for something else. I looked at Kiyonna but all their dresses were $150 or up! Any advice appreciated! Thanks 🙂

A friend of mine bought her dress from DressBarn. She paid $40 I think? It’s not all white, but it was ADORABLE!

Because summer is now over, all kinds of dresses are going on sale pretty much at every store!
Places like Macys, and JC Penny have tons at amazing prices, I’ve even seen dresses that are gorg. for under 50$ at Lord & Taylor and Bloomingdales! (bc its the end of the season).
So if you can, I suggest buying something on sale now (thats probably marked down from 100$+

I know Fashion Bug is currently going out of business, so the one by me has everything on sale for 30 to 50% off

@SconnyGirl: Ok, so this is not for everybody. But my cousin just purhcased an adorable polka dot dress from salvation army for $3.00. Yep, you read that right. Second hand stores can be a life saver when you are on a tight budget. I buy pretty much all my clothes there and, there are even some higher end second hand stores in certain areas. They actually buy the clothes from people, so they are really picky about what they take in but you can still get super great deals. Good luck! make sure you post a pic for us

Oh ladies! Thank you SO much for your advice! I found a super cute dress at Dress Barn for $50…. I just might have to do it. I’ll post a pic. I think it would be cute with opaque leggings and little high heeled booties.
Will def post pics 🙂
