Shabby Apple may have something that works.

Trashy Diva is the website where I bought my wedding dress… they might have something there.

Otherwise, Modcloth or Unique Vintage should have something!

@Lisandrag16:  Ohhh girl. Pin up clothes are my FAVORITE.

Here are some websites to peruse.

It depends on your shape what will work best. I’m apple shaped (I have a tummy, and everything else is pretty small.) and I look best in defined waist dresses that flow out from the waist or a wrap dress. If you’re more hippy/flat stomached you can do something more tight like a pencil dress. Good luck!

As a vintage clothing collector…allow me to warn you:

 

1940s dresses look like total dumpy crap UNTIL you put them on.  They don’t even look good on mannequins – but when you put them on…wow!

Oh, try Etsy and Ebay.  Just search “Plus size Vintage dress” you’ll get tons of results.  Usually etsy sellers are pretty awesome and allow returns if you don’t like the dress

PS:

Have you considered a 40s Skirt suit?  especially at a train museum!  omg!  birdcage veil, red lipstick, little gloves!  that would be awesome!

@Lisandrag16:  If I could jump through the computer and slap you, I would 😛 Being big boobed and tall doesn’t mean your body is weird!!! It means you are statuesque and curvy, and I’m sure your fiancee isn’t complaining! Right?

 

Did you find a dress?!!
