I know what you mean, Cre. It started pissing me off, too.

Is there a bridesmaid dress that looks anything like what you want? I’m sure there is… and they’re so much easier to find and try on.

Silly dress vendors not shipping enough larger sizes. 🙁

PS – I also drove to two different states to try on dresses. I feel your pain. I bought my first dress in Atlanta, two hours from my home in SC. 🙁

I’m sorry. 🙁 That’s so ridiculous, above 14 isn’t even getting oddly high… I know a lot of women that fit into that category, so why don’t the shops stock for them? Blah.

That is such crap. I can understand why you’re so pissed off. I can think of a few things to do…

-try to find pictures of other (not tiny tiny tiny!) people in that dress

-find dresses with similarities (cut, embellishment, silhouette) and try them on. it will at least give you a chance to see if that style looks like you are imagining. 

hope this helps..I’m so sorry you have to go through all this effort just to try a dress on! It’s not fair at all.

Thats what I was dealing with, I just had to put a on dress that looked the one I wanted and hoped that when the one I came in, worked on my body.

 

It’s absolutely ridiculous! Especially when you can’t get refunded if it doesnt’ work!

I think stores need to carry two samples of popular dresses. Personally, if the sample was a size 14 or higher I wouldn’t be able to know what it looked like either. I’m a size 00/0 so while it would be able to zip up they would have to clamp the dress so much that it would probably be unrecognizable.

Carrying a smaller sample size and a larger sample size would fix this problem!

is this the dress?

do you mind putting a photo of yourself off… dicapate your head if need be. i am a very visual person. so i’d need to see the comparison of your body type. but from the looks of what i’ve seen online… a girl over 14 would look stunning in this dress! you’ld have to order the dress to fit your hips if that is the largest part of you and get the top taken in… but wow what a dress!

So here is my expertise from dress fitting on a size 16/18 frame. (I tried on a LOT)

Diagonal lines are your friend, rusching diagonal lines are even better, they make you look smaller and leaner, so that dress (the one anvil put up) would be stunning and I mean STUNNING on a curvy hourglass girl!

Put a dress on that is in your size range and similar lines to the one you covet, and if you like yourself in that one, imagine how it will be in the dress you really want.  I did that and I have been surprised to say I look even better in the one I chose!

So I say rock it and have the confidence you can order it and it will be fabulous!
