I am a size 14/16 and have been postponing wedding dress shopping. With my wedding in October, it's definitely time to start looking. I have browsed through a couple of stores in Reading but didn't try anything on. One dress that I have been obsessing over for a particularly long time is only carried in a size 12 at one of those stores so I didn't even ask to try it on.
If you wear an "extended size" and have already gone shopping for your gown, do you have a store that you would recommend? I found that the dresses that I liked in those stores were only carried up to a size 12 and I didn't care one bit for any of the dresses they had in sizes 14-16.
Also, how far do some stores go to get a girl into a too-small dress? I'm certainly trying to lose weight, but I don't know if I'll be in a 12 (which probably fits like a 10, since it's a wedding gown) in the next month and I'd really like to try this dress on so I can either buy it or realize that I hate it and move on with my life, haha.
