Hate the name of the show, but like the idea.  However, I agree that plus sized women (like me) should have been featured the entire time during the show….

TLC might as well do a Say Yes to the Dress for little people with ten kids who are marrying into overweight polygamist families who build motorcycles and flip houses. haha.

I hate the idea of the show. Why single out just bigger brides? I’m super petite (a nicer way to say short) and could not pull off half the dresses they have on the show. But they don’t have a say yes to the dress for shorter people. Nor do they have one for different races or any other category. Why the need to single out bigger people? Why not just include everyone on the show.

@starcharades: completely agree with you.  if they would have had a great and normal selection of people in the show anyway there wouldn’t be the need for this…

@tinylittlebird this is SO me! I’m 5’8″ and wear a size 12 in jeans. i do NOT consider that plus size at all…but my damn shoulders make me feel like a freakin’ football player! in fact, i had to get a size 16 plus for my wedding gown and had it taken in a LOT in the waist!

sounds like a decent idea – but i agree with a lot of people here that i don’t like the name and i’m not sure about singling out girls who are “plus size” specifically. just have them on the regular show! but – i could see how having an entire show devoted might help other plus size girls out there to see something like that where there isn’t any size 0’s and they can relate to the show more…

I hate to say this but it really sounds like the non-plus sized chicks are complaining about a show that is making those of us who fit the category excited to watch it.  The name isn’t the greatest, but I think that the concept is…  because the other show features all shapes and sizes, and varieties of gender orientation…  I’ve seen petites, tall girls, average sizes, and plus sizes…   But this show’s concept is really looking at a group who often feels that the bridal industry is missing how they want to look and feel. I haven’t worn a size 10 dress since I was in junior high… my shape and figure are not the slim sizes of the average fit… I’m curvy, and have a naturally bountiful figure.  As I write these words, I’m thinking that if you just don’t get the concept and aren’t a true plus size woman… (If you think that being a street size 12 makes you plus sized… please check at the local department store, because I am quite sure that you are NOT in the category.)  Then you probably need to not make comments, because it’s not really helpful.  I’m not trying to be mean, but I think some of these comments are offensive.  It’s clear that you think the show doesn’t apply to you, so just watch the other ones and let those of us who want to watch all of the shows enjoy this one!

I think it’s cool. I am interested in seeing what the bridal world has to offer in the way of plus-sized dresses. Maybe it will be a catalyst for more bridal salons to start carrying plus-sized samples. I will be watching it in any case =)

I guess maybe they are trying to show that Klienfeld’s or Bridals by Lori or whatever salon they chose will cater to full-figured women. It’s a smart sales move for them so they can bring in more clients who were afraid to go there because the dress samples wouldn’t fit. Now they will be able to show ladies who are bigger in samples and it could bring in business. That HAS to be the motivation behind it.

Plus, the average size isn’t a 2. It’s a 12. They’d be smart to do this. And yeah, I’ll probably watch it. 😀

I haven’t seen the preveiws, but I do think it is a wonderful idea.
