How to zero in on the best plus size bridal dress that will make you break into a plus size smile?


Zeroing in on the wedding gown of your dreams should not be a bother even when you have a curvy body. In order to get a dress that can make people halt in their tracks, there are a couple of things that you need to know before you go shopping.

Pre-purchase tips

A slight negligence towards choosing your bridal dress can land you with a bad buy. So, be extra careful when you look for your wedding dress.

  • If you start your search for your wedding gown early, you will avoid the hassles that brides usually suffer after a hasty buy.

  • Going through the portfolios created by professional photographers can give you a clearer idea of which dress type would suit your shape. Photographers have stock images of brides of all shapes and sizes.

  • Do choose a dress that will go well with your stature. Don’t buy a dress in the hope of losing weight.

  • Finally, always try your bridal outfit with the innerwear that you will wear on your wedding.

However, wearing whatever catches your fancy can be a big fashion faux. So make sure that the dress you choose for yourself has some special characteristics.

Points to keep in mind while choosing:

To have an extraordinary bridal dress that flatters your curves, look for an outfit with the following traits:

  • Instead of choosing ball gown skirts, princess frocks or tea length dresses, go for an A-line gown.

  • If you are a little busty, then a dress with V-neckline can impart a wonderful contrasting line.

  • If you are conscious of your upper arms, go for a gown with cap sleeves. If you are not, say yes to a sheer wrap that complements your wedding dress.

  • Remember, lingerie plays a vital role to make you look even better in your bridal wear. So make sure that you buy supportive briefs, bras and bodysuits.

  • To be very honest, a milky white dress may not look too flattering on a full figured bride. So you can consider shades of ivory or cream. If you don’t mind experimenting with your looks, you can try a combination of colors such as “medieval combination” or Scottish tartan wedding dresses.

  • You can add a spark to your wedding party by choosing an informal wedding dress. In fact, they are ideal for beach and garden weddings.

  • Keep in mind that even the most gorgeous dress may not look so beautiful if you don’t feel comfortable in it. Make certain that you buy a dress wearing which you can move, dance and talk with ease.

  • It is better if you get a tailor to get your bridal dress altered to fit you perfectly.
