In the latest installment of a fat girls problems. Dress shopping for my friend's upcoming wedding in July. If you know me at all, you know I HATE even despise trying on clothes, especially wedding/formal dresses. I wasn't even looking forward to trying on dresses for my own wedding.
So I went to my local David's Bridal and tried on 8 dresses. There were two viable candidates, one was perfect:
The other dress would have needed to have the straps beefed up in order to support the girls:
So what do you think happened when I went to order my "perfect" dress, it's being discontinued. So I cannot order it, only whatever is in stock is what's left. What do you think the chances of me finding a plus sized dress in the color of the wedding.... UGH.
I was upset that the staff person assisting us didn't know that the dress was being discontinued, or if she did, she didn't say anything to us, about the possibility of it not being available. I mean, if you work in retail you should know your product.
So what did I do when I got home? I tweeted to David's Bridal about it. They responded to me, which I was surprised. They offered to research some alternatives. Which I appreciated, but anything they offered, I had already tried on or wasn't on the radar (dress material). But I at least thanked them for responding and looking into it for me.
I am just so bummed, and the search continues....
