Personal Shopper: A freakin' fabulous size 18 dress for Darcy to wear to her best friend's wedding

Darcy wrote, "Hey Outblush! I know that you get boatloads of personal shopper requests regarding weddings, so I'm sorry to say I'm adding one more to the pile. I'm going to a wedding Memorial Day weekend '11, and I need a fabulous dress to wear to one of my long time friend's wedding! (She's the first of my friends to get married, so I'm extra excited). I'm a curvy woman, so I need a plus size dress that's either tea or floor length (I lean towards the floor length dresses, though). Nothing super fancy, as it's not black tie, but rather a loose "look nice, but wear what you want" type of dress code. I'm a size 18, and can go up to $200 but would go higher if I absolutely LOVED the dress. Thanks! Darcy"

#3! #3! Gorgeous!

I think #3 and #4 sound best for the description ... but I agree with Marie, #3 is really gorgeous and kind of special (but not too much for a wedding, and still kind of easy breezy).

I wore #3 (in purple) this past summer when I was in my friend's wedding. I loved it. It's really comfortable, fits well, and the bust detail is very flattering. Get #3!!!

Ditto on what Rachel H. said. Except that I wore the dress to a different wedding because it would have been difficult to share it at the same wedding. :)

Thank you SO much! I love every one of these; it'll be hard to choose just one!
