On Wednesday I attended the David’s Bridal Fall 2012 Press Preview in New York City. It was a certified treat! As I’ve commented before, I continue to be impressed by the enormous offerings DB carries at affordable price points in so many store locations. And whether you’re a size 2 or size 26, they have you covered.

FULL DISCLAIMER: I have no idea how many Black women were surveyed to gather the below information but this stuff could be useful to you regardless.
I recently caught up with style expert Nicole Brewer to get the 411 on bridal fashion for women of all sizes. With nearly 15 years of experience in the fashion industry, Brewer is currently a Style Council Member for David’s Bridal.
