One of the most satisfying things we stand behind at Pegeen.com is that we guarantee the fit. We work very hard to make sure that a girl who may be looking for a Plus Size First Communion dress, and who is difficult to fit, looks just a beautiful than the next girl waiting to receive her First Communion. We think it’s so sad that some of these girls go shopping and come across some really unscrupulous sales attendants. One of the worst stories I have heard was that a young girl went into a large, box mart sized bridal store, after visiting at least 5 others without success, and the sales clerk said to the girl’s mother, of course in front of her, “OH we don’t fit girls like her. Maybe we should get a women’s dress off the rack and see if we can cut it down”. URGH. That woman should have been fired on the spot but I hear those are common comments in many stores.
There are a few styles that work REALLY well. One I personally like is the style below because fabric we use has pin-tucks which helps to slenderize the look. I usually dn’t recommend lots of skirt fluff – like many layers of tulle or organza. One layer of tulle looks quite awful but we think this body type is fine with single layers of organza. And, don’t be fulled by these crappy dresses coming from China for goodness sake. If I could show you the heart break from these moms who call us in tears, I would if that would help convince you.

Call us. We will treat your plus sized girl with the dignity you all deserve.
For PLUS SIZES we will send a Bodice in the mail which is made out of a muslin material. You will try on this pattern/muslin and get back to us with any further fit issues. Be sure to have a digital camera ready when it arrives. After the fit is finalized, we use our copy of the same muslin here and proceed to make your dress. “My staff and I are really good at spotting the problems. Once the digital pictures are sent back to us experience and a little programming magic, produces the changes that need to be made to the pattern. I really scare my kids sometimes when talking on the phone to customers. After they give me the measurements and height, I usually guess their weight within a pound or two. It amazes my kids but reassures the customer that we know what we are doing! I was especially happy when a recent customer said to me ‘ITS LIKE MAGIC IN A BOX’ and that pretty much says it right there.”
