Hi Bees! Tomorrow is my first boutique appointment at Bellasposa in Rancho Cucamonga. They are having a Maggie Sotero trunk show and because of all the great things I’ve read about Maggie’s dresses on WB, I just knew I HAD to go! I’m so excited! This will be the first time I get to really try on wedding dresses, my sister is going with me for moral support. Her style runs way more traditional than mine so we’ll see how that goes! I’m not sure they will let us take photos, I conveniently forgot to ask, but if they do I will definitely post some on here. I’m a little nervous too because I’m a very busty street size 16 and I’m hoping that they have at least 4-5 styles I can try on. Has anyone been to Bellasposa? Any advice for first time dress trying-on?? Ok, Bees, wish me luck!

Take a pen and paper to take notes on all the dresses, and get sneeky with the camera 😉 Have a blast and come back with tons of dress porn!

@SugerPlum: Hello! I am trying on dresses tomorrow too in SoCal. It is my first time ever trying on dresses. I made two appointments only and I fully intend on getting a dress at one of these two stores. I am so excited!

@tksjewelry: I didn’t even think of that! I’m putting a pad and pen in my handbag tonight – I’ll ask my sister to take notes. Thanks!
@nreed_07: Good luck to you too! Post your dress when you find “the one”!

I know you already went there but for anyone else who’s reading this (and maybe your experience was different), I though they were absolutely horrible for us plus size girls. First off, I had an appointment and had to wait a good 20-30 minutes once I got there before anyone helped me. The lady who helped me wasn’t very friendly after she found out my budget and didn’t really want to show me anything. I picked out one dress and she said “that’s over your budget.” Didn’t tell me a price or how much over, just said that and moved on. Then she had two dresses in my size to actually try on, and they were horribly ugly. I’m a dress size 20 and the lady threw me in a dressing room with a bunch of size 10-12 dresses, which I couldn’t even get over my boobs. Also, they didn’t give me any undergarments to try on with the dresses, no slip or anything and they wouldn’t help me into the dresses. After I couldn’t get into the dresses, the lady told me to just hold it in front of me, but again didn’t help. It was the first place I went to try on dresses and it almost ruined my entire dress shopping experience, it was so horrible.
