As of last night, I've been drafted as a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding. Problem:
for her bridesmaids is going to be...difficult...for me to pull off. Snowflakes within!
So, yeah, I'm kinda freaking out a little for a number of reasons. She's going through David's Bridal for her dresses, and their size range tops out at 26. At the moment I'm a size 28, and furthermore a very very
busty one at that, so a bra is non-negotiable.
My question is twofold:
1) How magical are the alterations people at David's Bridal? Can they somehow make a 26 work on me? I've been given leave to pick any dress, so long as it's knee-length, not satin, and comes in the "Regency" shade of purple
2) If option 1) fails, can you point me towards any royal purple 4X/28W dresses that meet those general requirements?
Other pertinent details: the wedding is in mid-August, and my budget is $150ish.
