I’ll make this brief. Back in January, I made an appointment at a David’s Bridal to try on gowns. That appointment, as I have discussed before, was a disaster. The most frustrating part of it was that I felt like the associate made no real effort… like, AT ALL to make me feel good about myself or enjoy the experience.
I want to come back and RAVE about my second experience which truly proves that a different store can make the difference. Not only did I find THE DRESS, THE ONE – but every part of the whole thing was fun, relaxed and I felt beautiful.
Here I am in a (bad cell phone) photo wearing the Oleg Cassini CT314 size 16 (in case other ladies my size want to see this dress rocked on a not size 2 body!)

Thanks guys! I went in expecting to end up with something with organza or tulle, flowey and romantic. My associate grabbed this, it was the first thing I tried on and when I walked out and saw myself, I was stunned. LOVE it! It screams vintage Hollywood glamour to me.
@okqueenbee – Yup, I’m in a size 16 dress here. I’m a street size 14. And thank you! I’ve been as small as a street size 6 less than 5 years ago and honestly it has been very hard to adjust to.
