After going to what feels like a million stores, I went to Sweet Elegance in Decatur. My experience was amazing. My consultant, Nancy was the best. She listened to what I was looking for and immediately started pulling dresses. I brought in a photo of a dress that I had previously seen in a magazine so we tried that one on first and it was gorgeous but Nancy encouraged me to try on a few others just so I could be sure that the one from the magazine was "the one." Every dress she pulled was awesome. Plus, she was really respectful of my budget.
I'm curvy (size 14 in regular clothes) and in other stores, I felt like my body type was a hindrance but at Sweet Elegance, my curviness was embraced and Nancy repeatedly pulled dresses that flattered by figure. I absolutely fell in love with the fourth dress that Nancy brought in. It was so perfect and everything that I didn’t know I was looking for. I retried on the dress from the magazine and it didn’t compare at all. I knew the other was “the dress” but I like to take my time with big decisions. Nancy, Aimee (owner,) and Kristine (owner) were so supportive and encouraged me to think about my decision. There was no pressure at all. I made another appointment for later in the week to go back in and try on the dress. I tried on the dress again and the deal was sealed.
I just wanted to share my experience because I know that the dress shopping can be extremely frustrating. Sweet Elegance was everything that I wanted in my dress shopping experience. I can’t say enough about how wonderful and supportive the consultants were. They had a ton of gorgeous gowns in a range of sizes. I highly encourage anyone shopping for dresses to check out Sweet Elegance.
