@mrsesq:  Not sure about the Vera Wang Esther dress but the Amsale Bijou dress does go up to a size 20.   Just purchased that dress this weekend from an Amsale store in Houston, TX.  The Amsale sizing sheet they showed me had sizes up to 20 — though at the particular store I was in, anything over a 16 had a 15% size fee tacked onto price.

hi there!

My wedding dress was Vera Wang. I am a street 4-8 (GAP flatters me with 4s…BCBG gives me 8s…grrrr), and Vera Wang ordered me a 12.  I will say that they are PHENOMENAL with service and tailoring – so if you buy from the boutique, they will make it work for you.  Honestly, Vera Wang craftsmanship and custom designs and service was truly amazing.

I did my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses through Priscilla of Boston in NYC – and they were HEINOUS.  worst. service. ever.  Messed up sizes on my girls…sales girls were ruder than the deli downstairs.  I know you didn’t ask about PoB but I take every chance to bad mouth them…ooops!:-)

I truly think the VW will treat you like a princess and find the perfect gown for every shape bride.  IN NYC, their boutique was one of my most attentive vendors.

GOODLUCK!!!

@mrsesq:

White by Vera Wang makes a totally low budget (like 1400 or something) version of the Esther – its a straight across neckline on the strapless part not a sweetheart neckline.  

It’s very pretty.  And as its at Davids, they may make different sizes, too.

@futuremrscrawford: Your post made me really excited about my appointment with VW in a few weeks! I’ve heard mixed reviews for the most part about the flagship store, but I wouldn’t want to buy a VW dress from anywhere but there because of all the alterations I’m expecting.
