It’s so hard to know what it’s going to look like on you – especially when everyone you’ve seen wearing it has been smaller. Are there any SIMILAR dresses you could try on so that you know if the style suits you?

Well, I’d say go for it! If you know the dress you love – woohoo! 🙂

I agree with PP. If you can find something very similar to the “one” try it on. I was head over heals in love with a Pronovias dress but being plus size I could not find it to try on anywhere near by, but I did find something in lace with the same silhouette and realized once I had it on, very sadly, it was not for me 🙁 If you feel confident about that fact that you like it and you like they way that style dress looks on you then go for it, reguardless of your size.

ETA when I tried on the very similar dress I knew 100% that the dress would not work for me. So I think the fact that you have already tried on something similar and liked it that you would probably love it.

I agree that if you tried on something similar and liked it, then go for it!  I wore Enzoani Brooklyn at a size 18, and loved it!!

I popped over to preownedweddingdresses.com to see what the Enzoani Diana looks like.  That is an absolutely gorgeous gown, and I easily can see why you’ve fallen in love with it!!

I really applaud your willingness to consider gowns that you are unable to try on.  At times, I wish I had been willing to consider styles that I was unable to see myself in, since I, too, am larger than the sample gowns.

There are three brides on that site who are shown in the gown — one gown is a label size 2, one is a label size 4 and the other is a label size 12.  Beyond the stunning beauty of this gown, two things are evident to me regarding this dress — even in a size 2. The style and cut of this particular type of gown tend to divide a bride’s figure into three — rather than two — defined sections, and the style definitely appears to prominently feature the wearer’s posterior.  However, those may not be factors at all for you, and I think a bride of any size could probably rock this dress as long as she is very proportional and has the height to carry it.

Diana was the only dress I’ve ever seen that has given me dress regret…I suggest you try on something as similar as possible to see what you like.
