Insulting Experience – After reading that this shop was the Best of Boston - I made this my first stop for bridal shopping - It was an awful experience! First of all, I was not asked about my preferences - e.g., the gown I was looking for, where I was getting married, the setting, nothing....when I tried to provide details I was ignored . This all happened while this older woman on the staff picked up gowns she wanted me to try on - ushered me to the dressing room with her and my maid of honor demanding that I try these dresses on despite my expressed dislike for the gowns she selected. She then proceeded to explain that the dresses she choose were because my breasts were too large and she didn't want to see them hanging out of other gowns! After her refusal to provide me with other choices, she said "Good Luck!" This all happened within approximately 10 minutes. Although their website indicates that they service a wide range of sizes, including plus sizes, I was taken to a corner of twenty dresses where "BIG SIZES" are - aka sizes 12 and up and was told that this was all they had for "someone like me". I am disappointed and found this experience dreadful - LOOK ELSEWHERE!
