Avoid like the plague – The worst experience I've ever had! Stay away from the tall, spiked-blond haired saleslady(a relative of the owner, I understand). She was dismissive, insensitive and the rudest person I've ever dealt with. I caught her rolling her eyes at the question of a customer she was measuring. Very condescending. Found out later several of my friends and acquaintances endured the same treatment. Now they tell me! Wouldn't go there if they paid me. Everywhere else I was treated with courtesy and respect. Amazing they're still in business!
Avoid this place – We took my mother here to find her special dress that she is going to wear for our wedding. My fiancée suggested this place since it had plenty of sizes that might fit both of our mothers. Now being the groom, I really had no idea what i was getting myself into, but i could not imagine how bad this store was going to be. I was there for moral support for my mother, and was she going to need it.
After about 2 minutes of looking around we were bombarded by a salesperson. She greeted us in that typical spiel manner. She belittled my mother for being in the wrong area for special event dresses and pushed us over to the right area. We were quickly surrounded by pretty expensive dresses. A little over what we wanted to spend. The salesperson started yelling questions at my mother about prices. I came over when I heard her yell repeatedly, "how much, how much?" I asked her, "are you asking her for a budget she's trying to stay in?" When my mom told her "how much", she wrote us off! She told my mother she is in the wrong store! Wow, my jaw dropped.
The salesperson abandoned us in the middle of the store, which is about the nicest thing she did. My mother could now look in peace. I really wanted to leave because the situation was incredibly offensive, but I understood that the sizes this store offers were hard to find. She successfully found about six dresses in her size between her budget give or take 100 dollars. Minutes later the salesperson came back to sort of check up on us. It appeared that she was going to put away the dresses my mother had chosen to try on, so my fiancé headed on over to let her know that we were interested in trying them on. This salesperson looked my mother up and down and told her "these will never fit you." She said it in a manner that completely crushed my mother. This lady was upset that we had not left the store yet and she made it clear that it was time for us to go.
Here we are in a store where they specialize in plus sized dresses, yet the rudest woman I have encountered in a while. I'm not sure if it's the color of our skin, the Spanish accent of our English, or simply our being there, but it was time to leave. My fiancé attempted to correct this person and explain that her tone with my mother was simply inexcusable. My future mother in law tried to explain that we were simply there to buy a dress and her attitude was too harsh. The lady stormed into the back ignoring us and yelled, "look at whatever you want then, I don't care." Our mothers really wanted to buy a dress from this place, but there simply is no point to supporting a store that employs these types of people. We left, because no clothing is worth putting up with this kind of service.
Beautiful Store Huge Selection – I purchased a special occasion dress for a ball I am going to attend. I cannot describe the large selection of dresses they have to offer. The store is beautiful, the service was impeccable, and the overall experience was wonderful. You won't be dissapointed
Terrific selection and excellent service! – Living downtown I always thougt I had the best selection of stores available to me. After finding Bonjour Madame on the web I decided to try them out. I was very impressed with their selection of clothes. They also have beautiful imports found nowhere else in Chicago. I recommend this store highly!
Thank You Bonjour Madame – Just a short note to say thanks to Bonjour Madame. I purchased a dress for my daughters wedding and I never had so many compliments. The sales woman at Bonjour Madame spent three hours with me and helped me pick out a dress. The woman who waited on me showed and explained to me what looks best for me. At first I was a little skeptical but after trying on my selection and then trying on her selection I realized that she really knew how to make me look my best. This store really knows fashion but more importantly they know what looks best on someone. Thanks again Bonjour Madame!
This Plus Size Gals Heaven – I am a plus size gal and finding a dress for my son's wedding was quite a chore. I live in Chicago and I could not find anything in the Major stores or boutiques here in the city. I found this store while seaching CITYSEARCH for mother of the bride dresses. When I arrived I could not believe how beautiful this store is. The selection is unbelievable. With the help of a very nice sales women I found a dress that I really loved. That was not easy because of their selection I had a tough time choosing the right one. I recommend this store very highly. I have already sent two of my friends there and they both thanked me.
MOB Heaven – This store has a slection of clothing for plus size that is unmatched. I went to find a plus size MOB dress. After looking everywhere I was expecting a limited selection like everywhere else. I was overwhelmed by their selection not only on MOB but their casual and evening dresses. Their staff was very professional and helpful. They know what looks good and not. They helped me select a dress for my daughters wedding that everyone thought was beautiful. Thank you Bonjour Madame..... "I will be Back"
Elegant selection of Mother of the Bride Dresses – I found this store on the web site and decided to go see what they have. I am a plus size women and there is no store in Indianapolis that carries any kind of selection. I was looking for a MOB dress in a size 26. When I arrived at Bonjour Madame I was overwhelmed by the store, the selection, and service. Not only did I find a wide selection but many of the dresses were in stock. I found my dress, they altered it and sent it to me. The service was excellent and I only wish I lived closer. Their women's plus size selection of dresses and casulal wear is the best I have ever encountered. Even though I live so far I plan on returning once maybe twice a year.
EXTREMELY RUDE SALESWOMEN! – I went into this store with my mother & sister both looking for mother of the bride dresses. I was in the store a total of 5 minutes before I walked out because the saleswoman was so extremely rude and inappropriate. She stuck her finger in my 8 year old daughters face and YELLED at her not to touch any dresses. I was so stunned that I just turned around and walked out. If the saleswomen do not like children, then they should post a sign not allowing them. There is no excuse for YELLING in the face of a little girl who did nothing wrong. I WOULD NEVER SHOP AT THIS STORE!! I would rather spend my money in a store whose salespeople have respect and common decency!
Best Selection and service for Mother of the Bbride Dresses and Women'sPlus Size – I recently found the Bonjour Madame web site on Google. They are in Niles Illinois. I am a mother who has been on a quest to find a Mother of the Bride dress for my daughters upcomming wedding. I went to Bonjour Madame and was immediately impressed. Their selection was larger than most high end department stores. Not only do they carry the average and small sizes but the largest selection of Women's plus size dresses I have found anywhere.
The service is very personalized and they sales people are very helpful in finding you the perfect dress. I recomend this store to any women who is looking for a Mother of the Bride dress as well as casual and Plus Size women's clothing. They also have a shoe store that carries beautiful men and women's casual and evening shoes.
