    don't fret, girls ... there are beautiful dresses out there for us. just be real about what styles look best on your shape (i would have loved something slinky, mermaid, or especially trumpet, but those just don't work with my hips)!
    And this is what I get for not reading the current pages posts before posting.

    You look AMAZING in that dress!! Va va voooom, caliente!

    Is it un-pc to say that I think that women with curves do better justice to form fitting gowns? *ducks head as the skinnies come swinging*

          I haven't had time to read through all the posts yet.

          I'm a 2XL and I love shopping at Ricki's!! For tops anyway. Their pants go up to 18 but I'm a 22 so no luck for me

          Ricki's have awesome tops. I love them for summer, and for business because they are dressier. Like you lisaloo, I refuse to wear cotton tops with pics of flowers or kitties on them YUCK!! Who do they think we are?!?!?!

          If you're looking for awesome tops, go to Ricki's. They go great with a pair of dress pants, or with jeans!

          Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

            Your dress is stunning! You look fabulous! For us curvacious girls, I recommend checking out the Allure plus size line. They have some very beautiful dresses!

            LIW - thanks for posting the names of some stores for us Canadian gals! Here in Sudbury, we only have 2 or 3 dress shops, so it makes it more difficult to find something plus size. I would be definitely making a trip to TO if my aunt wasn't making my dress.
            You're frum Sudbury? My FH is also from Sudbury! There seems to be a few ladies from Sudbury on this site. My FH also has Sudbury radar. He can be in a room with 1000 people and he'll manage to find the only person from Sudbury in the room, lol!

              Mummergirl, you look amazing. VavaVooom!

              My fiance says he should have lived in Canada during his "swingin' single" time before me! I talked to him about some of the plight you all have of not finding plus size clothing or international mailing issues. (He likes plump girls.)

              Have any of you done a Boudoir shoot?

                LIW, my fiance is like that too! Except, he's from Jersey and usually the person next to him is from Jersey.

                    Haha, we Jersey folk tend to do that, seek out the other Jersians... oh, and PS... those shows they have about the Jersey Shore and NJ housewives? VERY small percentage of people here. It is difficult to find nice plus size clothing. I have a big butt/thighs badunka dunk, and my chest is big, but my top is smaller. I can typically fit in to regular sized tops, but my boobs are ginormous... but the way I look at it, I am blessed to have a body! I am going to love my body because it is the only one I've got! Embrace the curves!!! And dress them up cute when you can find nice outfits!!!

                      It is more difficult to find clothes that aren't 'frumpy' looking (for me, especially pants). Thanks for all the ideas for stores, I'll have to take a trip across the border soon to do some shopping! I'll need some cute outfits for showers, our buck & doe, and for my week in Cuba! :)
