I just wanted to post a couple of pictures that I had taken on my phone when I went to my first bridal (ahh!) appointment today 🙂 Being a plus sized woman, I was really nervous and actually dreading today as I was afraid nothing would fit me and I would feel frumpy and ugly. I wear a street size 16 so about an 18-20 in bridal, I guess. Thank goodness for corset backs! I got into a couple of 14’s! But yeah we won’t show what the back of the dress looked like lol.
Here are some pics and I am trying to decide if it will be one of these dresses. Maybe some input? Ignore the pics of my head cut off, my friend was capturing me mid speech and evidently I look like I’m having a seizure whenever I speak.
#1 Maggie Sottero – Cameron
#2 Maggie Sottero – Symphony
With the jacket across my chest as the arms didn’t fit on me 🙁
#3 Don’t remember the name or designer… Casablanca?
#4 Mori Lee
#5 Mori Lee
#6 Maggie Sottero Montana
I’m so glad I got a few options to choose from! I have another appointment next month at Alfred Angelo, but I think this is a great start. Should I take any of these out of the running? Or definitely put any in? Thanks for your input!

Dress 1 is my favourite.
Not a fan of Dress 5 so I would take that one out

I said #2: the ruching is phenomenal and would look amazing with almost any jewelry! Also, at the risk of sounding inappropriate: it makes your boobs look great!

The Maggie Symphony is very flattering and is the one I chose as #1. The second choice dress is Cameron.
Some of them were just to busy and big, like the last 2 in the photo line-up.
I don’t think that the #4 Mori Lee is a flattering shape for you because it makes your shoulders look as big or bigger than your hips. Gosh it is pretty, though.
Now–are you going to dress up that Maggie Sympnohy with a lace top? I like the idea but didn’t much like the one in the photos. It’s a nice look, though.

The first one is gorgeous and makes your waist look tiny!

I voted 1, looks great on you. 3 does not look good at all, it cuts off at your boobs to early. Just strange.

Dang, you look fantastic in all of them!
Just a matter of personal preference, but I love love LOVE the 1st one on you, flowy and romantic with some beautiful details.
I also like two with the bolero, but I feel like it’s missing something even with the bolero added.
I think that #4 is very flattering as well, it has some sparkle and visual interest, but I think the main thing that draws me to it is how well it highlights your shape.
So it’s #1 and #4 for me, with #2 being the runner-up. You did a great job for your first time out!

I love number 6! It is so flattering on you! I’m not a huge fan of number 5, but I like the rest of them. You will be a beautiful bride!!!

I voted for the first three but I think #1 is my favorite.
Also I just need to tell you that you are drop-dead gorgeous. Like it’s not fair at all.

I voted for 2, 3 and 6. They ALL look lovely on you but if I have to pick just one it would be number 2! Sooo lovely on you! And I would say no jacket over number 2!

I voted #2 and #4. Beautiful!

You ladies are so nice! :’)
And I totally get why no one is choosing #5. It looks weird now that I see a big picture. No wonder they are discontinuing it at the end of the month! (That big smile is right after she told me this sample was going on sale at that time lol)

I like Maggie Symphony on you the best–but I think you could pick any of them 🙂
