I wouldn’t order a dress without seeing it on yourself first. I don’t know of any places other than DB that has plus size dresses to try on (but then again, I got my dress there, and went there 4 times before getting the dress). I’d actually say that the service there was better than the bridal salons I went to before DB, because they were sooo snotty and put so much pressure on me!

If you’re willing to drive 6 hours north, there is a store in Sacramento that specializes in plus size gowns.  It’s all they carry, and there is a large selection.  All of them good quality and very pretty! I bought my dress there and I highly recommend their service!

What’s the name of the store in Sacramento? Do they have designer gowns?

 

Thank you!

@Bride2be15:  Strut in Phoenix specializes in plus sizes.  You would be able to get in every dress in their store.  Good luck!

I have to agree with mrsromo. If you make the six hour drive east there is Strut Bridal. I absolutely loved working with Ann, she’s great. I am and 18/20 and most dresses were still too big for me so there are easily a ton of dresses you could try on. I highly recommend that store.

@Bride2be15:  The store in Sacramento is called Sparkle. It’s located on Folsom and 32nd in Midtown. I’m not sure of all the designers they carry but I bought a Robin Jillian there. The owner is very nice and she’s the one that did my appointment.

And as you’re driving up to Sacramento, stop at Trudy’s in San Jose.  Most dresses I tried on there were too big for me and I’m plus size.  They had heaps for me to try on!

I live in Indianapolis, and I am shopping for a dress. I am a plus size bride, and would like some suggestions for dress shops.

@Irolp04:  Debra’s Bridal in Upland CA is where I found my amazing dress. I am a 22/24 and they have more than enough dresses to choose from.  Hope that helps

I was going to go to the store in Sacramento, it’s called Sparkle I think. I asked the saleslady what designers they carried and she would not tell me! What the heck? I told her I live in Antioch, and that I don’t want to make the long drive to Sacramento if I don’t know what designers they carry. She told me “Well it sounds like you have already made up your mind then.” omg how rude!

Gesinee’s in Concord had a whole plus size room, I would say about 30-50 dresses there.

My dream is to open a plus size bridal salon, but I have no funds 🙁 and my credit score is bad after buying a house and taking on a lot of debt, so I don’t qualify for a loan either 🙁

@CynthiaJ:  The designers at Sparkle are not well known, at least I had never heard of them. The dresses are hit and miss…some are amazing and some well not my personal taste.

None the less I highly recommend a stop. They have something for every bride and the sample sizes are definitely accomodating to a variety of plus sizes.

I had an incredibly bad experience at Gesinee, my consultant was terribly rude. When I went back and was thankfully given a new consultant the old consultant swooped in and started a fight with the new lady. I couldn’t get out of there fast enough!
