Married Plus Size brides-What did you do with your gown??

I really want to sell my gown, but I am unsure if I would get any takers? I am a 20+  girl. I had the below Alfred Angelo gown, but has a corset back put in and a bolero jacket made to match the dress.What do you think?

you never know - why not post it on www.bravobride.com or www.preownedweddingdresses.com and see what happens?


maybe even craigslist - but only do a local sale, cash only - meet at a local mall or somehting so she can try it on before buying it???

You could even sell it on www.oncewed.com because they have an option to put the size and ladies can look gowns up by the size to make it easier to find the size they need. Good Luck!


P.S. I had a Maggie Victoriana gown and sold it on there it was a size 14 it sold within the first few days.

FWIW, I had two dresses to sell (since we were a two-bride wedding).  I got several inquiries and finally a sale on the size 18.  The size 12 is still languishing.  So I don't think it being plus size is a real hindrance to reselling.
