Okay, ladies, I have what is probably a stupid question…
I’m going with my Future Sister-In-Law to try on BMs dresses for her wedding this weekend. I was wondering if stores like David’s Bridal have all Bridesmaid or Best Man sizes in the store, or just sample sizes? If it’s just sample sizes, what sizes do they have? My body is really weird and I can wear a size 10 sometimes but sometimes I need a size 16. No lie. I typically wear a size 12, though. I’d like to be able to try on the exact size I’ll be ordering for the wedding just to make sure it fits. I don’t trust them to order just based off my measurements alone.
I’m sort of really worried about this. I already feel awkward because I don’t know any of the girls(including FSIL) all that well and I’m the only bigger girl in the wedding – the others are like size 0s.

It depends where you go. i think that often Davids Bridal will have more size choices and you may very well be able to try on a dress in your exact size (and maybe even buy it off the rack I think?). If you go to a higher end salon (where they would be making the dresses to order), they’ll only have it in sample sizes but sometimes they have 2 samples (one in a 6 or an 8 and one in a 10 or 12). I’m sure you’ll be fine 🙂 My SIL’s bridesmaids were all stick thin and I didn’t feel comfortable so I opted to just go with my sister.
When I went with my girls (for my own wedding), my sister couldn’t come, so we went together alone a different time and my SIL also went by herself. Of the 3 that did come the first time, they ranged in size from 0-24. But it was still a fun experience for everyone 🙂

Thanks! That makes me nervous, but I hope at the David’s Bridal we’re going to that they’ll have something that will fit me.

David’s usually has at least one of each dress in each size, it just might not be the right color. When I went with my girls, they could each try the dresses on in their size, just never in the right color.

That’s good! I can order the correct color and trying it on in another color won’t be a problem. Thanks! =)
