Hi, I purchased my MOB gown from Rowan’s Bridal.-through their online site. I wear the same size as you, and I am even shorter.  I don’t know how their store is for alterations, because I am on the west coast.  I believe they are located in NJ or PA.  By the way-my MOB gown was fabulous!  Their prices are phenomenal. Their website is http://www.keepmeinstitches.biz

Im a street size 14 – I got my gown at True Love Bridals in Matawan. They’re awesome there, and they have lots of samples in 14-20!

You’re welcome!

Their website isn’t very fancy, but they carry a lot of great designers.  The owner, Gail is super helpful, but not pushy at all. She basically let my Maid/Matron of Honor and I pull whatever gowns we wanted to try on, she was there to help when we needed, but totally out of our hair when we didnt. 

There’s nothing I hate more than pushy bridal sales people. I don’t want someone I don’t know seeing me in my spanx! hahaha

I’m not from NJ, but check out the Sincerity Bridal + collection. I’ve already hit up David’s Bridal and that was a joke. I’m eager to look at Alfred Angelo, but then I will be moving on to smaller bridal shops. I’m 5’2″ as well! I was dreading dress shopping, and before my first appt. I acutally went underwear shopping. And all I ended up wearing dress shopping was a standard strapless bra and regular panties. I found that the boning inside the dresses did a lot for me. I guess it wouldn’t hurt to wear a tummy holder thinger, but I don’t think it’s necessary for just trying dresses on. Good Luck 🙂

Hi,

As far as finding a plus size wedding gown goes.   I had a tough time when I started looking

most shops didn’t have much.  And even less….. to try on for size.  I found a great shop in

Lebanon NJ,  Lace & Beads they have a Bridal Plus Size section.  They carry a nice assortment

of gowns that my street size 22W could fit in.  Also 2 of my bridesmaids are plus size and they

carry dresses for them that they can try on also.  Good Luck.
