Dress for Bridal shower

I have been trying to find a white dress or something even white with floral but haven't had much luck in person finding something. There are websites like vici dolls, shein, and few others have tried but yea they might be nice on website doesn't mean will suit me personally. Having such anxiety about trying to find a size or making sure its not unflattering. I gained about 40 pounds last year and haven't been able to loose. I am not used to this weight even though been a year. I am not in general a medium but sometimes have issues with my arms fitting into sleeves so have to go size up and then its bigger everywhere else.

Where did you guys get your dresses for bridal shower or bachorlette? Were they accurate with sizing? I don't really live near a mall so would have to drive few hours for one which is fine just finding the time to do it is hard. Going to attempt during a week night though that way can go.

    I second Lulus. I've had great luck with them.

    Check out Boutique 1861. Its Canadian, so you won't be hit with customs like you would with Lulus. I find their quality to be really great and I'm a big fan.

    Another online option is Morning Lavender, I've ordered from there a few times and haven't been hit with customs once.

    In store, I would totally hit up The Bay. They always have great sales, there are TONS of white dress options, and its always great quality too.

    Last time I was in bootlegger they actually had a couple options for Cute white dresses.

    Online I have had luck from Lulus.. but you have to read the reviews about sizing, and beware of customs.

    I don't have a picture, but I found my dress* at Pennington's. They have sizes that range from 10+, so it was really nice being able to go into somewhere and know that I will find a dress I like in my size. *(my dress was white and floral)

    I had a really hard time finding a dress that was not super casual, but not really dressy. My Step Mom is doing a High Tea for my side of the family, and then my MIL is doing one at a hall.

    The one I got for my High Tea is from Le Chateau. I tried on the sizes that they had in store, and then just ordered online because they didn't have my size. It was a little more than I wanted to spend, but it was honestly the only dress that I have found that fits the theme of the shower.

    Now to hunt for a second dress. My SIL has gotten dresses from a website called BooHoo. She said they are good quality, good customer service, and pretty true to size.
