You might want to wear some Spanx and leave your inhibitions at home. even though a dress my not zip, you can still get an idea of how it will look. (you will have a little skin showing.
Corset back dresses are a good option as they are a little more adjustable.
Be sure to take your mom and a friend who can help you out. Someone might need to stand behind you and hold a part of the dress so you can see what it will really look like.
I am also a 12 street size. I had a horrible time dress shopping! I am really busty and almost no dresses would zip over the girl! Also, the designers all run differently. In one company I wore a 12 and in another I was a 20! I probably wouldn't try on anything smaller than an 8 or 10, ONLY because it will be harder to envision.
I took pictures of every dress I tried on and in most of them I have my arms squished down to hold up a dress! LOL
It can be a frustration process, but you will find the perfect dress, I promise!
