Yesterday I went out shopping with my mom to find my dream dress. I rarely ever wear dresses and I’m plus size so I wasn’t looking forward to the experience. I went to three shops that had a very limited selection for plus size brides so we ended up going to David’s bridal. I found a few dresses that I really liked and decided to try them on with the consultants help. The consultant was very friendly! As some of you may know David’s bridal doesn’t have mirr in the dressing room so I was forced to walk out of the fitting room and stand in the lobby infront of the full length mirror. I had no way of telling if the dress was flattering all I knew is that it zipped. I walked out to be mocked by a group of girls ( a bride and her bridesmaids) not once, not twice, not even three times but FOUR times. I didn’t want them to ruin my experience but they did just that. I received countless of dirty looks from these girls and comments that I was too big to wear a mermaid. And the dresses all looked ugly on me. I dont claim to be fit. I’m overweight and I know it! But what these girls don’t know is that I was feeling good about myself because I’ve been dieting and ive lost weight. As not only brides but also women we should support and flatter each other. Dont bring down another bride.

This is so gross. Those girls are vile and its so frustrating. I hate hate hate how it seems women are CONSTANTLY in competition with one another. We get girls like these that show how hiddeous they are when trying to feel better about themselves while cutting someone else down.
Im sorey you experienced that. That sucks

That is so frustrating. I don’t know how those girls could treat someone like that! Just ignore them and be proud of what you’ve accomplished. Just think how ugly they are on the inside, if you can be that cruel to a stranger imagion how they treat their Fiance or soon to be Darling Husband, divorce court anyone?
Seriously though, don’t let those bitches get you down!

If anyone does that they are classless and rude. Just be glad you are not like them and are a good person! I can’t stand girls like that and I bet your were gorgeous in your dresses!
Also, I LOVE mermaid dresses and think that if you find the right one anyone can rock it for thier body type!
I went into Alfred Angelo and the consultant was like, ,you definately need a ballgown- a mermaid would make you look really short (I am 5’2) and it was my first experiance trying on gowns so I only looked at ballgowns and bought one. When it came in I was super upset and complained to corporate (not just about that but other things that went wrong) and now I am wearing a mermaid dress and LOVE it. So don’t listen to anyone!

Shocking. A store manager should have stepped in – I would probably drop a line or make a call to David Bridal’s corporate. I am not one that believes people have to be politically correct all the time, but this was totally rude and uncalled for. It was a personal attack, and you do not need to tolerate that.
I am so sorry you had to deal with this, and I hope you find the dress of your dreams.

So sorry that happened! I hate that David’s doesn’t have mirrors in their dressing rooms. Even as a non-plus sized bride, I hated the “pageantry” of going out and seeing myself in the big mirrors. There were a couple of dresses that I was pretty sure I didn’t like as soon as I put it on, but just to check I still had to go out and do the whole “ooohh, ahhh” in front of the mirror. Also, the bee is great for building people up! If you wanted to post pics of any of the dresses, we would be more than happy to boost your confidence and tell you how rockin you look in a mermaid!

schoening22: You are so right. Women should always lift one another up in praise and be supportive. Unfortunately you have some really miserable people out there who only get a sense of self-worth by making others feel bad. Do not let them steal your joy. You have a man who chose you to spend his life with and he sees you for the wonderful spirit you are.
I tell you one thing though, if I was there, I would have shut those bitches up real quick.

I’m sorry, bee! I wish I was there to kick some skinny bitch ass!

Thats awful! This was part of the reason I hated Davids Bridal. My personal st is what most people would call goth/rock n roll, having to try on dresses in front of more conventional brides who were all staring at me was stressful. I threw the finger and moved on to the next store which was a better experience.
Honestly, they were probably just jealous of how fly you looked!

Anyone who judges a woman trying on dresses – whether she be heavy, skinny, tall, short, whatever shape – is a terrible person and karma WILL bite them in their ass someday.
I’m sorry you had that experience. No one looks good in every dress, by the way, and the only way you find your dress is by trying them on so it just blows my mind that people would be so rude.
