    Hi, I'm about the same size as you and I am trying to lose some weight before my first fitting in July. I already have my dress as it was a sample.

    It depends how much you are planning to lose and where you are shopping. Bridal boutiques can take up to a year to order your dress in so it certainly isn't too early, but if you lose a lot of weight then you may decide that a different style suits you better. So if it's just a few pounds then I would say go for it. If you plan on losing more then set yourself a target and start looking then.

    It might be worth asking when you make an appointment, how many larger sample dresses they stock. Don't pay too much attention to the sizes, bridal sizes are really small. Mine is a 22. But they are so flattering when you find the right one that you are sure to find one that makes you feel amazing.Good luck.

    I ended up going to a plus size wedding dress shop and ended up with a dress in a size 24. Wedding dress sizes don鈥檛 necessarily match real sizes as I was a 20/22 at the time. The shop had dresses from a size 16 up and loads I could try on.

    I had an awful experience in another dress shop I tried first. Despite advertising themselves as a shop that also stocked plus size they only had a handful of plus size dresses and whilst they could get other dresses in plus size I would have to order it first without knowing what it would look like.

    I'm the same size as you. I'm getting married October this year. I bought my dress last year of the rack. The dress I fell in love with happen to be on sale so I snapped it up 馃ぃ.
    My advice is to tell the boutique when booking your appointment your size so they can be prepared. That what I did. Most of the dress were too big when I tried them on. The one I bought is a few sizes to big so I'll be taking it in. I started slimming down and have lost a stone! My first fitting is July and I can't wait! Good luck and enjoy it's a nice day out 馃檪
