Do you know if they have plus-size sample bridesmaid dresses for people to try on David’s Bridal??? I see pix of Brides trying on dresses there and they look larger…..I am wondering if they carry larger sample sizes?
You see my sister is upset because the private designers only carry size 14 to try on. My sister thinks she’s too big for that size. She’s too self-conscious to just pick a dress from a catalogue….she wants a dress that looks good on her body. She doesn’t want to be a bridesmaid if she can’t try on a dress before ordering it… She is also picky about the dress and was unhappy we picked long dresses:(
My solution is that if David’s Bridal has plus size dresses, she can pick out a dress there….and I’ll order it for her…..And she can get it in a different color, navy, and be my maid of honor..that way she can get a shorter dress if she wants…..(my bridesmaids are in lavender dresses from Dessy/After Six)

David’s Bridal definately carries plus sizes (I looked online and some go to a size 30). As for sample sizes, if I remember correctly when we were shopping for my bridesmaids dresses we pulled some plus size dresses while looking for the sizes that we needed (I think I remember an 18 and a 22?). Of course the sample sizes vary by store so maybe you could call ahead and ask if they have some samples in the specific size you need. Good luck!

Oh and remember that these dresses run a little small so she may need one size larger!

I called about a dress that I am interested in for our reception and asked if they had a sample. They told me they had two samples; one in a size 10 and one in a size 28. I would call the one in your area and ask them. I am sure they can accommodate your sister. Also, try Alfred Angelo.

Definitely!! One of the main reasons we’re going with DB is because my maids run from a size 2 to a size 24. DB has been able to accomodate all of them so well. Our DB generally has 6-10 different sizes in each dress style (though they’ll be different colors). If you’re concerned, you can always call ahead to see if they have a certain size, but usually it’s not necessary.
