I believe they can still get you that dress even if they don’t carry it. But don’t quote me on it. I do completely agree with you that the second dress simply out does the first. The first is just too cookie cutter for girls like us, TRUE CURVES! Best of luck and glad you could hold the production of the first dress!

I completely understand what you are talking about….I had the same feelings of paranoia when I tried on the sample which was a few sizes too small.  I am actually very glad that I had my mother there to help with the decision because the only thing hold me back was the fear that when it came in in my size I wouldn’t like it.  In the end, I loved it!  Everything about it fit perfectly.

OMG girl I loooooooooove the second dress!  Reminds me of my dress with the sweetheart neckline and rouching and the way it hugs your curves.  Your butt looks fantastic!   I made sure I tried on all styles when I went shopping because you just never know what will look best.  I’m glad you listened to your gut – there was obviously more going on than just being a bit unsure.  You weren’t done looking yet when you purchased, and that’s ok.  Keep us updated. I’m excited to see what you finally choose!

@aat108: One of the few times I’ve seen a dress on someone that they were second guessing on and did not agree with the bride that the dress was wrong. It looks great on you! I really like it.

@aat108:   Awww, thanks!  I love my dress.  🙂   I know what you mean about your Fiance loving your curves and liking the second dress because of it.  I know when my Fiance sees my curves he will love them!  I just keep thinking back to what Randy says on Say Yes to the Dress – for plus size girls it’s all about the silhouette.  I’m excited to see what you find!  Do you have to buy from Kleinfeld’s now because of your deposit?

 OMG!! I did the same thing.  I put a deposit on a David’s dress that was ok.  I went to CurvyGirl in Fairfax and fell in love with the first four dresses I tried on!!! It was between the Maggie Sorrento and La Sposa.  I went with the LA Sposa.  I am so glad that boutique caters to woman with a little bit more curves!!  You  look AMAZING in that dress.  I really hope you can find something like that at Kleinfields.  Good for you for not settling!!

First, regarding your first dress purchase, I wanted to share with you that I ordered my Jim Hjelm wedding gown without being able to completely zip the sample gown (I am your same size) and tried on the size 8 sample.  It came in and was perfect.  I still love it.

Regarding going back to order another dress from Kleinfelds, why don’t you try to find another dress that looks similar to the La Sposa gown you have found?  I’m sure you can find one with a very similar cut.  Just a thought…

may I ask what the price range was for dresses at curvy girls- all over 1k? or some under?

@aat108:

OMG!  You look AMAZING in the La Sposa gowns!  Ruth and Kim definitely have a knack for knowing what looks good on us “Curvy Girls”, that’s for sure!  I made the trip from NJ to VA a few weeks ago and ended up purchasing my gown there! 

In looking at the pictures, I would think at this point it should be a no brainer for you except I totally understand your dilemma with the deposit.  I have never been to Kleinfelds but assume they carry headpieces and accessories?  My suggestion would be use the deposit for those items and get the gown you feel most beautiful in.  Good Luck!  Keep us posted!
