A Plus Sized Prom with David’s Bridal

 

So… Prom. I remember it vividly. First the date, a fiasco that I dare not share (pure Hilarity looking back). The dress? So, back in 1998, there weren’t too many options for the young plus size girl looking for something cute and fashionable. If it fit, it was extremely dowdy, weird, or basically UGLY.

So what did I do?

I designed my dress. I sketched it out. Took my sketch to my family friend who was a seamstress and she crafted a fabulous royal blue strapless dress with a sheer jacket to match. And I felt fabulous. No one could tell me anything.

BUT.

Not everyone has those resources AND today’s plus size teen NOW has options for her that are fashion forward, on trend, AND in her size! One of those places delivering this for us is David’s Bridal. Seriously, David’s Bridal has seriously been onto something lately when it comes to accommodating the plus size woman! I would have never thought of David’s Bridal for Prom, but HA! They should

    I got my prom dress my junior year from David’s Bridal and it is still in my mom’s closet. It was absolutely the most gorgeous dress ever and it’s timeless. I absolutely want to wear it again someday…….

    I live in SLC, Utah. The local David Bridals here has so many options for plus sizes. They carry Vera Wangs “White” wedding line, too. Sizes go up to 26! The manager stated she personally met Vera Wang and VW stated, she wants brides and bridesmaids to fit her dresses!! I thought this was neat because in movies, I assumed you had to fit a Vera Wang dress, not the other way around.
