I’m fluffy and I have went two times already dress shopping.  Several I like, they are very slimming, but I am still torn on the dress I want.  Regardless of how small or big you may think you are, there is a dress that will just make you feel beautiful!

Dress shopping is what I’m most nervous about!! You are DEFINITELY not alone! Not only am I nervous about fitting into samples, but then to stand around in them in front of my family (and maybe future MIL??) – scary.

I was SUPPPPERRRR nervous about dress shopping. I went to David’s and had an amazing experience! I actually felt great in the dresses!

I had shopped on my own but after my venue changed and the dress no longer worked I got really stressed. I told my mom about my stress and thats when we finally found the perfect dress. Do you have a plan for loosing weight or are you happy where you are at? (ps I was happy and then lost 40 pounds since I bought the dress)

I was having full blown “need a paper bag” heaving breathing the entire drive to my first appointment.  So, don’t feel alone!  It did go away after I got there because I started to fall in love with all the beautiful dresses around me… and then when I got in the fitting room I started to get nervous again.  BUT, I got the first sample on… so it was all good from there : D

Don’t be too nervous… once you start looking at all the dresses and styles/details you get distracted from the nervous part.  Have some fun! I’ve also yo-yo’d with my size… I was average (8-10) and then went to tight size 16 (really a 18) and now to a 14. 

And yes, I only had my Mom with me… (who was silently praying next to me in the car that I would calm down a bit and not be so nervous LOL).

@MsLlamaFace:  I totally believe you dont need 5 people there with you. The only one who came with me was my mom and then I brought my bridesmaids in a few months later to show them the dress.

@missashley884:  I’m definitely plus size and have been shopping probably 25 times (not because I hate how things look on me, but because I love too many dresses!)  Yes, it can be a little strange having to hold things up to yourself or having zippers not go up.  What I would highly recommend would be to go somewhere DB or another salon that carries plus size samples and try on all the different styles.  That way if you’re having to imagine a too sample as the real thing, you’ll know how that style works for your body.  It really helps alot.  Especially if you can take photos.  Good luck!  Who knows, maybe you’ll love it like me!
