Ugh. You are so right. Except i’d sub “you’ll always be a huge bitch” for “you’ll always be unhappy.” Because I’m not as nice as you are.

that is terrible.  good for you for standing up for yourself!  what an awful woman.  i would write bad reviews of her shop everywhere that i could.  i seriously might even call a newspaper and ask them if they would be interested in doing a features article (now that it is wedding season) on the struggles of plus-sized brides and tell them about that store!

@angela— i love it! i’m plus sized too but i *hope* that even if I wasn’t i wouldn’t go to a store that was rude to ANYONE even if i was their target demographic.

You are a lot nicer than I am. I would blog EVERYWHERE about her… Also on local listings when you Google the company. I would use her name everywhere… I would go above and beyond.

That’s really awful.  Also, you’ve learned self-love and self-acceptance which can be really difficult at any size, but is so important and rewarding.  Someone who passes that kind of judgment on people clearly has not and as much as her comments might hurt others, that sort of attitude hurts her all the more.

Oh my goodness, how awful!

I would call and report it to a manager! And then write up a review on them on every website I could find!

HOLY CRAP! I have never heard anything more ridiculous and hurtful.

Seriously, dedicate the next week or so to launching an internet campaign against them on every review site you can find. Include the store name, and the manager’s name if you have it.

Also, please BE SURE to report them to the Better Business Bureau.

If that were me, I would print out flyers with all of the store info, her name and what she said in bold, colorful font, and hand one to every woman that attempts to enter the store. Park yourself there on a busy saturday and scare away some of their business — make her regret crossing you.The other stores on her block will thank you.

Finally (sorry, this ticked me off), if she’s a manager, go above her to the owner and talk to them

Good for you for not letting her get away with this! I’m SO glad you turned around and went off on her.

PLEASE put her on blast everywhere that you can!

That’s horrible! I would write bad reviews about them in as many places as possible.

Glad to hear that you may have found your dress too!

OMG definitely write bad reviews for that place.  I am absolutely stunned that that happened.  I’m a size 16, and I had a boutique tell me that I couldn’t try anything on at my appointment.  I walked out.  There are ways to work with every body size if they care to.  It is an absolute false idea that “fat women don’t get married.” 

 

The bridal industry really needs to address the experiences of brides size 14 and over, considering how many of us there are, and how many of us have had awful experiences wedding dress shopping.
