I donno why they wouldn’t carry bigger sizs.  I ordered my dress, never having tried it on, and love it. It’s not all horror stories. Good luck.

I’ve tried a few A LINE Lace ones.  Let me know if they help

 

Maggie Sottero, Kartina Royale size 18

 

Not sure who this was, but Size 18

 

sortof lacey size 14

 

This is Lace over tulle..I love it Sophia Tolli Liv size 14 (i’m usually a 16 so its a little too small)

back of Liv

 

I am currently inlove with Maggie Sottero Nora, but haven’t found it to try on yet.

I ordered the Sottero & Midgley ASM3297 without ever seeing it in person. It was the best decision I could have made. 🙂

i had this same problem im a street size 16/18 bridal size 20-22. went to davids bridal and only had about 5 dresses for me to try on and i felt they were all very frumpy:( i know they said side ruching is flattering to bigger girls but i hated it and then the rest of the plus sized dresses i felt look liked maternity dresses. i loved the maggie dresses but had the same problem all of them were a size 10 at stores and couldnt fit. finally i went to a tiny store and they had divinci bridal gowns!! i fell in love witht the quality and quanity of dresses!!! best of all the dont charge extra for plus size!!!!! they didnt have my exact dress but i tried on a gown similar to my dress (ballgown) and fell in love. the divinci dresses have a built in corset to smooth out any bumps or buldges and it was a brand new dress never tried on or handled like at davids bridal. they customized my dress for free for me! and they dresses are super resonable starting at 200 on up to 1,000.

Well i wish i was as lucky as the rest of you bee’s, i ordered my dress without trying it on and i think i made the worst mistake, all i can see is what is wrong with my body and what makes it worse is that the store ordered the dress too small and now it has to be let out, i feel like cancelling the entire wedding as were 13 weeks away and i now have no time or money to get a new dress. 

I’d def say try the dress on just so you dont fall into the same situation as me.
