@LAB:  Some stores are different, but I found few bridal salons with lots of sizes to try on.  I was upfront when I called to make my appointment, as I had no desire to enter a store that only had tiny sample size dresses.  The salon I ended up getting my dress at didn’t specailize in “plus size” dresses, but had several dresses size in my sizes range for me to try on.  (I’m a street size 14 & ended up ordering a size 14 wedding dress.)  So I’d suggest calling the store first and finding one that has a wide selection of sizes before going.

Good luck & enjoy it!!!  I was incredibly nervous about the size issue as well, but happened to find a place where it wasn’t an issue at all.

You can call the store’s first and ask what they carry. You’ll likely go up 2 size or so, that’s normal. Davids Bridal I know carries up to somewhere in the 20s off the rack. I don’t know what Sak’s has, but call and ask, that would eliminate any chance that they have nothing for you to try on!
