You can definitely go to bridal stores in NYC! When I was trying on dresses, I was between a 26 and a 28 and I had no problem trying dresses on. It’s okay if they don’t zip up in the back – the attendants will just clip the dress to your bra so you can see how it would look in your size. I tried on dresses at the White Gown in Brooklyn – which was a lovely experience with great saleswomen, Kleinfeld’s and David’s Bridal. If you’re on a budget, I’d skip Kleinfeld’s, but the other two stores would be perfect. There’s also RK Bridal, which has plus size samples, and Lestan’s Bridal in Brooklyn. Definitely give them all a try! 

Also, if you can travel to try dresses on, there are two plus size bridal shops near Washington DC – Curvaceous Couture and one other one whose name I’m blanking on at the moment. But don’t let being a size 28 hold you back! You can definitely find some things to try on!

Sounds like KatieBklyn has some great suggestions for stores to try on dresses, so when you do try some on, emphasize that hourglass figure! I would try all kinds of styles on because you’ll be surprised what looks good/what doesn’t look good on you.

Definitely check out the Mori Lee line of dresses. They are stunning, and look fabulous on curvy figures.  Look for a style that has a corset back… it will slim  you in all the places you need it, and accentuate all the right curves.  And remember, an A-line dress is the curvy gal’s best friend! Happy Shopping!

I don’t know about dress shopsin NYC; but don’t make the mistake I did and wait too late to order. Who knew it took months to order most gowns. Good Luck

Yup, even if you don’t buy a dress from David’s Bridal, I think it’s a great place to start. Just to get to try on different types of dresses that they will actually have in your size or in a close enough size so that you can see what style of dress you like and feel beautiful in.
