Jax’s Alfred Angelo has a fairly decent select of plus size dresses in store. I don’t know where north port is, but Im an FL plus size girl and so far besides db and aa, i havent had too much luck otherwise for in store samples and what not. As for flattering styles and whatnot ruching is always flattering lol. Everything else depends on your figure shape. Get something that makes you feel beautiful and you will be beautiful.

I’m plus size too (still shocked that my dress is smaller then I expected) but I went to David’s bridal first thinking they’d have the bigest selection in colors, sizes and shapes and I was right. Wasn’t expecting to come home with a dress, much less the first one but I did. Couple that with their credit/payment plan I couldn’t say no.

If you can get to Tampa I would recommend Jons bridal as a place to try on gowns in your size to see the style you like.  They had many many sample gowns in plus sizesmay you buy what you try on there…no orders, but you also know exactly what you are getting.

I dreaded gown shopping and was quite disappointed in my experiences at 5-6 local bridal boutiques in the Orange County, CA area.  I found that most don’t have designer gowns in plus sample sizes, and if they carry plus sizes, they are usually the “women’s line” which in my experience meant frumpy A-line gowns with too much fabric that did not complement my figure.  I also went to David’s Bridal, and did not think any of the dresses flattered my figure. I saw other women try on the same dresses in sizes 2-10, and I thought they looked great! I just felt that with my body shape, the David’s Bridal gowns added more to my figure, rather than flatter my figure. And I must have tried on 10 dresses.

David’s Bridal definitely has a great selection of plus size dresses, so I also recommend starting there.  And I hope you find a dress there!

If, like me, you don’t find a dress that you love and have the means to travel, then I recommend Curvy Girls Bridal in Fairfax, VA (DC metro area). While on a business trip to D.C., I decided to do an internet search for bridal boutiques and plus sizes, and stumbled on their website.  I was so thrilled that I was only a metro ride + taxi ride away! It sucked to find my gown without my mom or bridesmaids with me, but I’m so thankful I found a gown that I love!!!
