      I just purchased these for my girls and gave them to them yesterday! I can't say what their feedback has been as I haven't recieved any yet, hopefully that means everything is perfect! haha! I can say that they are made well, the material is good quality, not a jersey cotton type material but a more slinky, flowy material. They  are made with lots of material so there is sufficient coverage, I can imagine they would be perfect on any shape!


      I am pretty sure the only store that they have them at is in Ontario in Canada, I am from Canada and couldn't try before we bought either. They do have a decent return policy though, so you can always buy just one and see how everyone likes it and if it doesn't work you would only have one to return instead of a bunch!


      They have been offering free sample swatches recently, which is how I confirmed I wanted the dress for sure as the plum colour was perfect! I also got a few other colors and all of them were very nice!

          I've seen full figured bm's int hem, I would have them get the tube top since the materal is slippery and things tend to move around

                I can't tell you where you can try them on, but if you go to http://www.henkaa.com/ and click on gallery, they have 8 pages full of pictures of actual people in the dresses. They have ALL shapes in these pics even including a couple pregnant bridesmaids. You can at least get an idea of what it may look like... It was really helpful for me as I was concerned with that as well!

                  I have one of these dresses and I love it!  Instead of looking for a store where you can try it on, why don't you order one online from a store with a generous return policy?  I think Amazon.com sells some.  That way you can try it on in the comfort of your own home and return it if you don't like it.
