Hi everyone -
So...Saturday I went to my first appointment at DB to try on wedding dresses, i must say it was a horrible experience. I am about 14w-16w which is not the hugest thing in the world but it sure seemed like it and i was just disgusted on the in-store samples they had for plus size women.
I had been browsing the DB website for a few weeks and narrowed down the 3 dresses i love and wanted to try one, when i get there they have NONE in a size that will fit. The consultant then brings out all the 16w dresses they have in-store (which is about 5) and allows me to try them on. They were terrible...i was totally disappointed.
So...this is what i did..
I found the dress i absolutely loved which is style 9swg400 and my lovely sister agreed to try it on (she is about a size 10-12), it was gorgeous. I really felt bad asking her to do this, but she was ok with it.
I ended up purchasing the dress in my size because i fell absolutely in love with it. It will be here in 8 weeks - so exciting.
I learned from this...i need to lose some weight
and i guess my expectations were a bit too high for good ole DB. I don't think i ever want to wedding dress shop again.
I am 13 pounds down and counting, hoping to be 30 down before my big day!
