I need a nice slenderizing gown.

Im 5'9 and am 240 lbs.

Any gowns on line or in the Monsey area to buy or rent.

I really am desperate. Everything makes me look fatter than I am.

Does exquisite not have? I feel like they have a huge range of styles and sizes.

Thanks.
Looked at Eshakti. Nice stuff but no dress for me.
I'm going to go to Exquisite and see what they have but didn't want to spend so much. But might not have a choice.
Where is the Beautiful store. Never heard of it.
Anywhere else or a gown rental place?

The beautiful store is a plus size store in monsey. They have real nice stuff for every day and shabbos and some evening wear as well. They just opened a new storefront on main street across tip top and monsey shoes. Next door to chosen.

Exquisite in Monsey does not sell gowns, only the Brooklyn store does.
Did you try Augenbrauns or Sareka?

A few years ago, I got a beautiful and slenderizing gown at Exquisite in a size 16. I'm a little shorter than you, but the gown needed a big hem. They definitely had at least a few sizes larger.
The gown I got was very different than what I envisioned wearing, but after trying on gowns that on the hanger looked like what I wanted and looked awful, I tried this one and was thrilled...

If you have a Facebook account, search for the Tzniut Gown Swap group.

Exquisite only goes up to 24 and they had very few options in that size, mostly black. I'm 5'4 and 190 lb and I squeezed into a 20 there. A family member who was larger was unsuccessful there. You have to Lakewood or Brooklyn the Monsey one is not the same
Augenbrun is slightly cheaper and had some options. They can also custom make for you but that's more expensive. Lakewood is much better than Monsey. If you go to the Monsey one make sure the owner Chani is there when you go, she'll know the options and what she can do for you. I think she's there in the mornings but call first.
Beautifull gowns were nice but on the more basic side. Looked like they would be slimming although I didn't try them on. They were black with maybe pink or white panels on the bottom.

Eshakti you can customize the length, kneckline, sleeve length and size.
I’ve seen several gowns made from there and they were really nice.
Find a nice dress and customize. There are so many options.

Lucky woman. I think he has dressed some of the Oscar nominees for the Red Carpet. As I recall, they interviewed him and he made a point of saying that he designs for all sizes.

As I recall - it has been a few years - the plus size actresses he dressed looked astounding. He truly knows how to dress a woman with curves.
