Wow!  I am shocked by the way the lady at the first store treated you.  I am a street size 14, but a lot of the stores had me in dresses that were well below that, just so that I could see what it would look like, and were in fact the ones insisting that I try on dresses that were below my size.  At one store, after the saleslady saw that I only had a few samples to try on in my size, she insisted I go back and pick some others, and not to look at the sizes. 

There was really only one store that insisted I try on dresses my size and above.  Even though they might have carried my dress at a cheaper price, to me it wasn’t worth it to call and check, just because of how they made me feel when I was initially trying on dresses. 

That being said, I did try on both the dream dress, and it’s replica which I liked better (the JA 8483 and the Allure 2416).  The Allure almost became “the one”, but I could never envision what it looked like at my height (I’m 5’2).  My dress, the Maggie Sottero Saratoga, was the first dress out of the close to a 100 that I tried on was the only one that I could actually picture myself in on my wedding day.

OMG!  The very first dress I tried on was that last Galina strapless.  It is really well made, and for the price (!!!!)  They are all lovely.


I personally love the keyhole back, its stunning.
