As a plus size person I know how difficult it is to shop for our size. I used to end up wearing black so I blended in. This was until I got engaged!
Your wedding say is a day with all eyes on you and you are going to have hundreds of photographs taken, so you need to feel comfortable and you want to look good.
The best advice is go in to a bridal store and try on lots of different styles and you will see what looks better for your shape. But here is a quick guide to advise you on what may look best.
If you have an hourglass figure, you would look best in A-line gowns or even mermaid/trumpet style dresses. You have a tiny waist and so you want show that off!
Pear shaped brides look best in an empire waist dress and especially strapless ones! This style adds extra ‘wow’ to the top half and when teamed with a fuller skirt can flatter your lower curves.
Apple-brides should choose a ballgown style dress. This will help to add volume to the lower half. Avoid spaghetti straps and corsets which can cause skin spillage that you really don’t want.
Short waisted brides should look for gowns with a dropped waist, which will make make your torso appear longer. A flair at the bottom of the dress will also help the look.
Busty brides should look for a V neck dress as this will allow you to get underwear which will support you throughout a very long day. And we all know how much our girls need support! You could also look at off the shoulder or straight across strapless, but avoid sweetheart and plunging necklines!
Take your time and when you go to try on dresses take the one person in your life who will tell you the truth!
