If you are anywhere near Wahoo, Nebraska, they had some awesome stuff and went up to like a 26, I think. And nothing is over $350 :-)... I found my size 18 there and they had some designer stuff as well. emoticon It wasn't the same old same old, I kept finding they were unique and different and made for us girls with a bit of a weight issue :-/ Good luck on your search! :-)

Google Mormon Wedding Dresses, even if you are not Mormon. I find them very nice and modest. I am sure that you could find one with 3/4 length sleeves.

Or if that doesn't work. Ask your bridal consultant about adding a Bolero Jacket or shrug to a dress.

You can even ask that sleeves be added to your dress.

Non-strapless dresses can be tricky to find but luckily thanks to Kate Middleton, sleeves are totally making a comeback! I don't know your price range, but I think these two dresses are just so beautiful and they come in your size:

also check out Bonny Bridal, they have lots of New Jersey boutiques:

And they have some beautiful (non-matronly looking) gowns with 3/4 sleeves:

I just went into a regular bridal store for me when I was a size 24. They had all sizes, from a size 0 (oh dear god, are there seriously people that skinny and 5'10 tall?!?) and bigger sizes than me. Just try not to go more than 4 sizes smaller pushing it. A saleslady pushed a size 14 on me, I even told her, don't you know...kinda thing, she still pressured me to try it on, I think I kinda ripped the dress, plus I am sure I looked funny wearing the dress over top of me, with my arms flaying all over the place because I couldn't see where I was going. you could always call beforehand just to make sure you don't waste your and their time.

Hope this helps.

Does anyone have any suggestions on boutiques or stores for plus size wedding gowns? I'm probably going to be an 18-20. I absolutely hate my upper arms and would like a three quarter sleeve type dress. This is proving to be insanely hard to find without the dress looking matronly. Any suggestions would be very helpful. I live in South NJ. I'm so stressed. Every time I look at wedding gowns I get sad and weepy, as opposed to happy and excited. Every beautiful wedding dress I see is sleeveless; and, I know that I can't go arms are too yucky from weight loss, lack of toning and stretch marks. I want to be able to cover them without looking frumpy. I'm nearing my first real meltdown with this wedding.
