Personal Advice for Plus Size Brides


It is enough to stress out about planning and getting ready for a wedding. Your weight shouldn’t be keeping you from enjoying your special day to the fullest. I have compiled some helpful advice that will make it easier to be a plus size bride. Feel good knowing you are not alone! There are many many other plus size brides out there going through the exact same thing.

So you are one of the plus size brides looking desperately for that perfect dress. It is not quite fair to you, since most of the wedding industry seems tailored to the size four crowd.

But take heart, there are actually plenty of options for you out there. It is entirely possible to find that perfect dress in just your size. It is simply a matter of knowing where to shop and how to fit your shape.

The most important thing to keep in mind: do not purchase a strapless dress. Do not. You will regret it. The strapless dress is the most unflattering for any shape. Even the thin models tend to look as if they are pouring out of the dress.

This is not to say you need to but something with long sleeves. Look for a nice spaghetti strap or a cap sleeve. This way you will not have to worry about loosing the dress or hanging over it in pictures.

The next thing to do is to determine your shape. If you are an apple shape (big on top, little on the bottom), look for an empire waist dress that skims the body. If you are a pear shape (big hips), you can never go wrong with a lovely A-line dress.

Next, find a store that carries plus sized gowns. There are many that do. Look for one that does not just carry them, but has a wide selection. If you want one specific dress but can not find it, look into custom gowns.

Lastly, take someone you trust with you to the gown fitting. They will tell you how it looks, assuring you that you will look as beautiful as you are on your wedding day! Plus size brides have nothing to worry about, just take a deep breath and focus on your day.
