I mean, how many different styles are there altogether? The detailing doesn't matter. Surely enough larger sized brides have come through these salons who have bought gowns. I would really be impressed if a shop offered something like that.
I'm short and fat and I know there's probably nothing that would fit well enough to give me an idea of how I would look.
Petunia, I agree with you. While I know it wouldn't be realistic to have one of everysize, I think if they offer certain dresses in the "W" sizes for full figured women, then they should have a sample in that size range for us to try on, rather then squeezing into something taht is not even close, no one looks good squeezed into things.
