All wedding dresses come in bigger sizes but only a few designers specifically design for Plus Size. And believe me there is a big difference. Plus size isn’t just about having curves it’s about many other factors like you might be really tall etc.
Plus size wedding dresses by many designers are considered to be from size 16 and above. In most cases, those who cater to curvier brides have ranges that go up to size 32 and even size 48. While these designers may have these sizes, the dress boutique you choose may only stock designs up to size 16/18 (in real sizes 14/16) with their main sample sizes varying from 8 to 12. Before setting your sights on your favorite bridal boutique, it’s essential that you first do some research in order to see if they can assist you in your wedding needs.
An important question to ask yourself and your wedding dress consultant is which dress style best flatters your shape. Of course, on your wedding day, you want to look your very best while feeling your amazing self. Wearing a dress that isn’t comfortable or makes you feel self-conscious can drastically limit this.
Before looking at which style complements your body the most, you should start by getting an understanding of which body shape you have. Based on your shape, you will then be able to find a dress that fits you in the right places and flows where you need it to. The fit of your dress will vary with each individual style and shape, so it’s highly recommended that you talk this through with your bridal consultant.
Once you know whether you’re an hourglass, pear, apple, or oval, the fun of choosing your dress can begin! For curvier women, we recommend looking at the following styles to help accentuate your beautiful body:
- Drop waist
- Fit and Flare
You may also opt for a dress that either has a high neckline, sweetheart neckline, or strapless etc., or a dress with straps or sleeves. These can work wonders in bringing the attention to parts of your body that you’d rather highlight while hiding the parts you want to hide!!
