There’s absolutely nothing wrong with flaunting your beautiful curves on your wedding day. So long as you maintain some level of decency, nothing should stop you from looking stunning on this special day. But we all know shopping for plus size dresses, let alone wedding gowns, can be a nightmare. And because we want every bride to look beautiful on their wedding day, we’ve narrowed down some tips and gown designs that are perfect for the plus size brides.
A-line wedding gowns
A-line silhouettes can flatter almost every body type. They are designed to be narrow at the torso and flare at the hips. You can choose almost any fabric you like with this type of gown to maintain a feminine look. Look for fabrics designed for plus size brides especially the ones that don’t add an extra volume or make it uncomfortable to wear. Whatever you choose, you are unlikely to go wrong with an A-line gown.
Avoid different fabrics of shapes on a single gown
You’ve probably seen wedding gowns that have a different fabric on the silhouette and the skirt. These types of gowns don’t work for plus size brides. They tend to cut the body in an unflattering way. Look for a single fabric or two that blend perfectly together and transition smoothly. Avoid textures that are completely different on the same gown.
Consider a mermaid gown
If you want to flaunt your beautiful curves then a mermaid gown can be perfect. You can wear it with a bodice to carve out your waist if you are little thick on the mid-region. The popular mermaid silhouette can look amazing if you are not afraid to accentuate your hips.
Avoid very light fabrics
Here’s the problem with the extra light fabrics, they tend to skim the body and also exaggerate certain small details. Fabrics like silk and chiffon may not be the most ideal for plus size brides. We’d rather you go for lace, satin and organza which is one of the most common fabrics used to make wedding gowns today.
Choose something you love and feel comfortable in
Most importantly, your wedding gown needs to be something you definitely love and will be comfortable in on that special day. Plus size brides don’t have to be uncomfortable to look stunning. You can still make a fashion statement with a gown that is very flattering for your body shape.
