          Yes, try Windsor Bridal on Orfus Road, near Yorkdale Shopping Centre, they boast the largest selection of plus size dresses. My daughter got her dress there but we weren't looking for plus sizes so I don't remember seeing any. At least try calling ahead of time and ask them.

          Windsor Bridal * Toronto's Bridal Superstore * discount wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses and more

            And, I agree, start w/ David's bridal b/c they have a lot of sizes and then check out smaller shops. Good luck!

                I have heard of a store in the Atlanta area that specializes in size 16 and up brides. The store is called Silver Lining, and you might get some ideas from their website if you are unable to visit the store. I am also a tall and larger (size 16-1 bride to be, and I have thought about going there just because i wouldn't have to cram into too small samples. Good luck :)

                  I found the best selection for plus size dresses at Davids Bridal. ultimately i feel in love with a dress i never got to try on. i can't believe i actually ordered it from ONLINE, but it came this past weekend and I am amazed at its quality. Here is the link to my dress:http://www.lightinth...8-_p144595.html 

                   

                  Ohhh and i am a size 20 street wear. Its a little to big in places but once the seamstress has a chance to work with it I feel it is going to be very flattering :)

                    I was TERRIFIED to go dress shopping at first! I was so worried I would go and I wouldn't be able to get anything on far enough to even see what it would look like. Try on lots of different styles. I ended up getting something that I wouldn't have originally thought would flatter me. You never know what you will fall in love with! Just relax and go with someone who will be supportive (but honest) and have fun! It won't be as bad as you think it will be! Definitely try Davids Bridal and Alfred Angelo. I only tried DB, and didn't love anything. I wish I would have tried AA, I think their dresses look much better quality than DB. Good luck and stay positive!
