  • I was shopping around for a mother of the bride dress and honestly I’ve been wanting to go to this shop for quite some time now. I was excited because tonight I finally had the opportunity to go. I am having a tough time writing this review because I am so astonished by my experience with the shop owner. We were greeted harshly upon entering because there was 20 minutes till closing and she was in conversation with a few people that were about to leave. My daughter and I drove 45 minutes to get there and we wanted to give the shop a quick look as it’s a small space we weren’t planning on taking more than 10/15 minutes and never expected her to stay any later than closing. She asked us some pretty feather-headed questions about the wedding that had absolutely nothing to do with me needing a dress. She insisted that I try some dresses on so I guess she wasn’t in too much of a hurry to close. So, I found a few dresses and she showed me into the fitting room. She told me not to z... Read more

  • I have been shopping an Botticelli for several years. When I became engaged, Jan was one of the people I immediately thought to share my news with. I knew she would find me a dress that was 100% "me". We made an appointment. I had been looking at dresses online and at a wedding expo. I had an idea of what I liked but was sure that style wouldn't be flattering. I had a blast trying on dresses and have to admit I enjoyed being the center of attention in shop on a busy Saturday afternoon. Jan brought out some great options and I was pleasantly surprised to find that a few styles looked really good! I did not expect shopping for a wedding gown to be an affirming life moment and make me feel really good about the image in the mirror - but it WAS! Thanks Jan!

  • Absolutely amazing service. My first visit to try on dresses had to get rescheduled several times due to a snowstorm, and Jan worked with me to make sure that I was still able to go in and try on dresses with a friend from out of town. Jan really listens to what you want and what your style is, and she had pre-selected some gowns for me to try on before my first visit. I tried on many beautiful dresses in a bunch of different styles, and I found one that I fell in love with. I went back recently to try on dresses again after going to some other bridal shops, and none of them even came close to the level of service that Jan provided at Botticelli. When you're there, you are the main focus (there is only one bride in the store at a time), and Jan will really work with you and offer suggestions to help you find the perfect dress. I tried on some new dresses, and then I tried on the original dress that I fell in love with and wound up buying it along with a veil. The prices are completely ... Read more

  • Jan is extremely knowledgable about her stock and ahat would look good on different body types. The first wedding dress she picked ended up being the one for me! She truly made the process enjoyable even though i was completely stressed out. Thanks so much for all your help!

  • I have been going to Botticelli for 10 years and have always thought Jan was terrific. I went to see Jan for my very first wedding dress shopping experience and honestly, I am SO glad I didn't try to go anywhere else first. Jan knows my style, but still took the time to talk to me about the wedding, the venue, the feel and how I wanted to look on this very special day. I thought I wanted more of an evening gown and Jan asked if I still wanted to try on traditional wedding dresses. I was game for anything! Jan told me that she woke up super early thinking of our appointment and had some dresses in mind (typical Jan - have to LOVE that about someone you are entrusting your special day to)! Of course I had an amazing experience and had to make the tough choice between dress #1 and dress #3. Jan gave me a vision and we went with it and I fell in love with the dress I ended up buying. I honestly could not have asked for a better experience. I hope that all of the rest of my... Read more

  • I had been putting off buying my wedding dress for weeks because I am a plus size bride. I had gone to a few places feeling a little sad as my options were very small. I made an appointment and they got me in the next day- The owner Jan, took the time to get to know me, my fiancé and my venue. I have never felt like a beautiful woman- but she made me feel like a beautiful, pretty bride and she let me see that I had several options without any pressure. I was never nervous and felt completely at ease the entire time. I had sleeve/jacket options, veil options and hair accessories all at my finger tips. It was worth the commute to get quality fashion but the best customer service you will ever find!

  • Jan is amazing. Being a plus size woman in corporate America is not easy. I had to go to our annual gala and awards ceremony. I needed classy sexy and feel good all in one! I went to party dress express and I could barely try on anything. I went to see jam and walked out with the perfect dress with minimal alterations! A true miracle. Jan gets it!!! My second time needing to buy formal and she won my business forever!!!

  • If you’re a plus size bride like me I’m sure you’ve watched countless hours of Say Yes to the Dress and every other bridal show there is. How many of you also thought, I am going to be one of those crying in the mirrors because nothing will fit and I’ll have to imagine what it looks like in “my size” after special ordering.. Yup.. I was one of those brides. I put off looking for my dress I think because of this, but it was time. My future SIL recommended a “boutique” type of store in RI to get my wedding gown and I thought seriously? She assured me they had designer gowns for every type of wedding and budget and to trust her, so I did. My very first store, and my last. Jan was professional yet warm and put me at ease before I even put on the first dress. I brought in pictures of the types of dresses I liked, told her what kind of wedding I was having and we got started. Yes, I did in fact buy the first dress I put on, but only after trying several more AND LOVING EVERY ... Read more

  • I had always wanted to visit Jan's shop, so on a trip to RI, we stopped in. I was welcomed very warmly and purchased a few items. I will be going back as my daughter is getting married and cannot find a mother of the bride dress. Her shop is wonderful and she has a very high quality stock.

  • When I was invited to speak at an event in New Orleans I needed the IMPOSSIBLE to find attire - something dressy enough to convey some authority, "fun" enough to connect with the audience of art business owners, something flexible enough for maybe cool, maybe hot environment and something to fit my plus size shape. Like I said "impossible", right? NOT at Botticelli! Instead of having to take what fit, I had so many options I was almost overwhelmed! And not having had a history of having so many options, it was difficult for me to accurately assess what looked best. Jan, the owner, gave me her laser focus and insanely accurate intuition and had me looking FABULOUS in no time. Botticelli is now my FIRST stop when I need anything - casual, formal, corporate, fun - and the bra fitting I got when there was life changing. Jan makes you feel like you are her only customer and the other ladies in the store are so friendly and helpful. And a bonus? You won't break the bank! Botticell... Read more

  • This is the place to go for the plus size bride. The owner Jan gives you all her personal attention during your consultation. Being able to try on sample dresses that actually fit is a luxury rarely found in a standard bridal shop. Jan truly understands how to flatter different body types and won't just try to cover you all up. I felt like an Amazon queen on my wedding day in a dress that was made for my body and a gorgeous veil that brought the romantic touch I was looking for. They do not do alterations, but she can suggest someone in your area. This place is a one of a kind experience for curvy ladies!

  • I was 1 month out from my wedding and in typical bride style had delusionally kept thinking, "I'll lose weight" before settling on a dress. Panicked at the realization that I was likely going to have to wear a sheet for my big day I wrote Janet. She responded immediately and the next morning I was leaving her shop with the perfect dress. A few alterations later and I looked exactly like I had imagined I would on my wedding day.

  • I really can't say enough about Jan and everyone at Botticelli. I was very worried about trying on wedding dresses, but Jan made it such a fun and comfortable experience. I went back a few times and finally find the perfect dress. She is amazing and I hope that every plus size bride goes to see her. You will never regret it. Just fantastic!!

  • Jan is FABULOUS - seriously, some of the most down-to-Earth, responsive and supportive service I've seen (or even heard of) from a bride's perspective. Jan rearranged her schedule to be there for an appointment as we were traveling from a few states away. She allowed this very indecisive (and very nervous) bride to try on many dresses - not just three or four, as some shops do. She's got a nice selection of dresses and as a plus size bride, you can be sure you'll fit into her samples. There is NOTHING more absurd than a sales person saying "you can hold it up to see what it'll look like" to make up for the fact that the store does not cater to plus sizes. When it comes to pricing, I'd say the prices are certainly fair - and that's not accounting for sales, which are GREAT! I got a good deal on my gown- the veil was pricey. But again, Jan's such a fantastic, non-pushy but SKILLED saleswoman that I just HAD to have it when she pulled it out to try on with my gown. And she even shipped me... Read more
