Well, at Macy’s sample sale (total different, but it’s my point of reference) most dresses were sample size 8, but there were some that were larger and some that were smaller.

If you have to work in the morning, though, I’d skip it. I’d hate for you to spend 3 hours in the car for no reason 🙂

I’m not sure what to tell you, but I wouldn’t miss work, but that’s just me.  I do have a question for you if you would answer it for me. 

Where did you order your dress online?  And what was so bad about it?  I was considering ordering mine from an online retailer, but I don’t if it is the same one.

I did the Filene’s Basement running of the brides in August in Boston.  I’m a street size 12 too and there were plenty of dresses in my size.   Depending on the brand of dress, dresses between the sizes of 10-18 fit me.  There were many girls there that were bigger than me and they found dresses too.   I would definitely go!  My only advice is to go a little bit later in the morning.  I was the 100th bride in line, about 300-400th person overall and by the time my “team” ran in we didn’t grab one dress.   After the craziness died down in the morning (maybe after an hour or two) 90% of the dresses we back on the rack.  I found a beautiful white strapless gown for $250.  dress</font></font>

If it were me I would probably regret not going more than I would feel like I wasted my time if I didn’t find anything after heading down there.  If you aren’t going to be missing work, then what do you have to lose?  All it costs is the gas and the time to drive down to Miami and you never know what you might find.  From what I understand, there are still plenty of dresses in all sizes after the initial insanity of the morning. 

My grandmother got her dress at one of Filene’s first sales years ago and she remembers it being less than $50 and very fashionable.  If nothing else it will be a story to tell your future kids.
