So I went to a store called Group USA at Ontatio Mills in Ontario haha and well we got there late because my mother thought she was right about the dress stores being open late on a sunday and she was wrong of course and I was suppppper bummed so we decided to go into the mills and I found that store and I really loved it, I was extremley nervous but I didnt get a ickky feeling because there was a full dressing room on SKINNY chicks and i was the only plus size, i was ok I really was, BUT when I put that dress on and it didnt even fit i got soooo sad and was about to give up and the sales llady told me, this dress runs small for some reason i got happy and they they also didnt have a bigger size so i was stuck without trying on that exact dress in my size but I said fudge it and I went to show my mom (even tho it wasnt zipped up) and she looveeeddd it and when I looked in that mirrior i loved it too nothing else came to my mind, not how fat my arms look, how fat i look in it(surprisingly not that fat at all :]) do i look like an overgrown marshmellow? none of that shizz, I really loved it, but Ima keep looking only because it didnt fit 🙁 and It wont look right with a corset, but I was just excited that i got to try at least 2 on 🙂 thanks for reading!

Dress looks very nice.
Next time you set out to go shopping, call the store ahead of time. Make an appointment and ask about their sample sizes.
Make sure they carry samples that fit.
Also, don’t worry about the sample fitting perfectly. The salon will take your measurements and order you the right size.
Then you can have alterations done to make it absolutely perfect.
Most of the dresses I tried on didn’t zip up all the way, but that didn’t keep me from finding my perfect dress.
Can’t wait to see it when it actually is made for me!
