I took my mom dress shopping yesterday. She is plus sized so she has been having trouble finding something that didn't make her look frumpy--after an okay start at Ana's Bridal--we ended up at Botticelli's in North Providence.
From the second we walked in the owner, Jan, was fabulous--she had about 15 different dresses in different styles and shapes that my mom could actually try on. It was a such a great experience for my mom!
I highly recommend them for any plus sized woman looking for formal wear!!
