I found my dress by Bonny style # 1500
It was actually way too big on me (which i never thought i would have THAT issue!!!)
I am a street size 22/24. No worries <3 The hardest part is finding a salon that has enough of a decent selection for our fuller figure. I think they need to stock more myself.

I was COMPLETELY horrified at the thought of even going on and trying on dresses so i bought one online from china. came back like crap so i was FORCED to go. i took 1 day off of work and hit up 6 stores. some of the davids dresses i found didnt work for top heavy women. 1 store carried my size however they were all $1000+ (beyond my budget). I ended up at Diamond Bride in Plymouth, MN and gave them my budget and the lady went in the back and brought out about 20 dresses. i’m a street 18/20 and i went with the alfred angelo 1620. this thing does AMAZING things to my body. I look like a freaking hour glass and CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!! it came with a lace ivory jacket that i find a bit “1980’s dallas”, i’ll be altering it. But seriously I went through 5 stores and about 60 dresses before i found this one, moral of the story, go to as many stores as possible and try on every dress in the place. That ONE is waiting for you!!

I agree with most ladies…you will find one. The right wedding dress and may I add shoes work wonders. I felt fantastic on my day and loved my custom made dress.

I’m a size 22, and I just ordered a dress from http://www.bridalweddingplus.com. Sooo many other sites just have normal dresses in big sizes, but these ones are advertised as being specially bodiced for full figured ladies. Dress arrived on time, and shipping was free, so am very happy with it. It’s not cheap, but a great dress!!! Would recommend it for anyone shopping online.

Thinking this is it! Mori lee 3123. It’s a size small and the bust is huge! Still not sure everyone says its beautiful,but I don’t feel like they are being honest. or I’m just being crazy.

I agree with previous posters. Try on every kind of style and shape. But make sure when you go to bridal shops make sure you ask if they have Women sizes. I am a street size 14 in pants, size xl in tops. I knew i didn’t want a poofy dress, something I haven’t seen a lot of other brides wear, and most of all hide my tummy. This is what I ended up with and i love her especially the Coca cola bottle look it gives me. This is Allure W302
