I’m in the process of searching for a dress to wear to my SO’s brother’s wedding. My SO is the best man so I know I’m going to be in a lot of pictures. I want a “wonder dress” that makes me look fabulous! Yes I know, don’t we all?
Any advice or suggestions for dress brands or types? Do any of you have “that dress” that you just love? Is there a certain brand or clothing store that is your fall back when you need something quick?
For reference, I’m a size 14, 5’8″ and I’ll be wearing cowboy boots. It’s rustic nighttime wedding but it’s also pretty formal. It’s very hard to find a fancy dress that looks good with cowboy boots! Please, any help is appreciated!

Check out Torrid! Their stuff is absolutely outstanding, won’t break the bank, and looks amazing on us curvy girls. They’re online, too!
Happy shopping, lady. 😉

I LOVE dress barn. Almost all of my dresses come from there. As a size 14, ou can shop both the misses and womens side, so double amount of dress choices. I can do the same as a size 16 😀
Also, i always find nice dresses for weddings at Sears

You don’t need to shop at Torrid. Your a size 14 and can shop mostly anywhere. Whenever I need to find “the dress” to any formal event…..I visit Nordstrom site, check it out http://shop.nordstrom.com/c/womens-dresses-shop?origin=breadcrumb

I think a full skirt tyoe of dress would be adorable with cowboy boots or a simple sheath with a statement necklace.
Minus the cowboy boots I think Tadashi Shoji and David Meister make awesome dresses for curvy ladies. Can’t say I’ve seen one recently that would look cool with the boots.
