    plus sized formalwear?

    Advertisements
    So, it appears that I may be going to a ball in November and I have no idea where to find a decent dress. Right now, I'm between a 14 and a 16, but I'm hoping I can be in a 10 or so by November. I want to shop online, but I need to try the dress on before I buy it, so I won't order one online. Where is the best place to look?
    I need something that's suitable for a 26 year old, not an 18 year old. I don't want to look like I'm going to prom.
    Oh, and the theme is red, white and blue, so if the dress could be one of those colors, it'd be nice, but not necessary.

    Yay, a ball!! Did you look at David's Bridal? They do have more "mature" looking dresses. I'm off to google for you!

    I always shopped at David's Bridal. I know Lane Bryant has beautiful dresses too. Sometimes Fashion Bug too.

    That's cute. I'm not sure about strapless though. I'd have to try it on.
