Okay, I’m a size 14 street, 16 bridal.  That is my size now, two months out from my wedding.  Until a year ago (which mind you was three years after we met) I’d been a 10.   The simple answer is yes – I’ve been there. I have put on dresses that made me feel horrible – but by the time I got around to dress perfection?  It was the best feeling.

The part that stopped me in my tracks was when the first DB consultant I met with kept trying to jam me into a bridal 14 and then hold the back and say ‘just imagine!’ sorry lady, I’m not going to be able to imagine myself thinner when you are making me feel heavier than I am by saying OH ITS SO CLOSE TO ZIPPING!

I’m also apple/pear shaped, I carry my weight in my belly, butt and thighs.  It’s hard to find a gown that can flatter that style since most dresses today are aimed at the fit and flare style or have a dropped waist.

I’d advise looking for a dress with built in structure and boning in the bodice.  I’m in a David’s Bridal dress, style CT314.  See how I have a waist? HAHHAHAHA I have ZERO waist otherwise.  The right cut will make all of the difference.

@Fire: Do you have a different store nearby?  I went to one store with horrid service and another one about 45 minutes the other way and had AMAZING service.  DB can be very hit and miss.. but ultimately you are going to have the best most realistic selection there as a curvy bride.  🙂
