Looking for plus size dress!

I'd like to find a size 26 or larger dress in the Chicago area.  We're planning a destination wedding in April of next year and I can't seem to find anything I really want something that is simple but elegant and makes me feel beautiful.  If you have a dress you'd like to sell or know where I might find one please let me know!

    Online may be your best bet. But try trying stuff on at like David's Bridal first to make sure you know what you want. The service was great at both the Schaumburg and Aurora ones. I'm a 20 which I understand is smaller than 26 but they were really nice and I didn't feel at all like they didn't want me there since I'm not skinny like I did at HOB. http://www.weddingdressfantasy.com/ seems to have a good selection. Alfred Angelo also has a lot of dresses that go up to size 30W and they don't charge extra for larger sizes. Good Luck!!!!

    Ditto.  I'm a 26 and I was able to not only try on dresses as DB, but try on what ended up being my wedding dress in my size.  It was fantastic.  At HOB they made my feel so crappy for not fitting into the sample sizes and the best they could do was hold them up to my front.   I HIGHLY recommend DB for us plus size girls.
