    I went to about 4 different stores and found nothing at most of them. There was even a store where the owner was rude and made it an awkward appointment. I've probably tried on 30 dresses or so in a 2 week span. I found two dresses that I loved out of town, and later went back to buy the one that was a real showstopper.

    I had the same fears, and I had help finding the right shapes for my body from the consultant. I also had an idea of what I did/didn't want in a dress, and they usually know how to work from that. I'm sure you will find a dress that you love, and that you will look amazing in! Good luck!

    I tried on the first one and loved it but wanted to see other dresses on and i kept wanting to go back to the first one. I ultimately decided to go with the first one and only ended up havin gto go to one place. I'm glad i found it without all the hassle because now i can move on to the next thing and i just get to wait to hear when i can go pick it up! I am so excited!

    I don't remember how many I tried on because I went to so many stores and tried on about 15-20 in each! I am happy that I did try on that many because I found the one I truly love.

    Somewhere around ten, I tried six at David’s Bridal, then about four more at a Kleinfeld's pop up sale in New Jersey, where I bought the dress

    I tried on 7... but the first one was it. I knew it almost right away and each dress after I was more sure!
