I knew for years I'd get my gown at Gossypia just as one of my best friend's did nine years previously. I'd grown out of my cinderella gown fantasies and wanted a simpler yet elegant look. Gossypia has a less-traditional (and more affordable) inventory of dresses and I knew I'd find SOMETHING to my liking there. I had that moment when I came out of the dressing room where Mom, the two sales women, and I all held our breath for a second because we all knew it was the one.
The sales staff prefer you make an appointment to try on the special occasion dresses kept upstairs, but this is not a typical bridal salon. There's one dressing room. Most of the dresses are off-the-rack, but some are special order. The women were very helpful in selecting and trying on dresses. Neither tried to push anything on my. When they offered comments on a dress, they were sincere critiques of how it looked on me rather than fawning fake compliments of anything and everything. I was very happy with my shopping experience there.
