Don't Be Bullied
This is your wedding, your dress and, regardless of your size, you should never have to settle. Salesclerks may try to convince you to select a gown that's less than flattering because it fits and they have it in stock, but you should hold out until you find something you really want.
Take a few friends with you to get some honest feedback and opinions, and don't be afraid to call ahead and ask what sizes are carried in a store before you make the trek over there. Numerous bridal shops are looking for your business, so don't give up until you find that perfect dress!
