Nothing wrong with David’s Bridal 🙂 That is where I went for my lovely gown. It was $599 bucks, and it looks just as good if not better than  designer gown for $4000+

I never once felt nervous about trying on a dress. Then I found my dream dress, it was a corset back and it is suppose to corset into a perfect V. Mine looked more like a tornado lol. It got really small at the hips because I am well endowed. However, it looked absolutely amazing. I, too, have lost weight (27 pounds) and so when I tried on my dress at my fitting that dress was amazing. I fell in love with it all over again to see that is laced perfectly, a perfect V like it was suppose to.

It really does do wonders for a body. Not only that but I look tan in it, so there really was no reason to fake tan or anything. The white against my skin already made me look great. I wish I could wear my dress every day. Can’t wait to wear it in a week!

Thank you for your post. I’m not a big girl but I was and still kinda am terrified of going dress shopping. I want to lose 15lbs or so before my wedding and I just don’t want to go and try things on and look awful. Your post really makes me want to just suck it up and do it! lol

So happy to hear that you had a great dress shopping experience!  I must say those corset closure dresses really frame any type of body style nicely … it sucks you in and gives a nice shape … no shape wear needed!
