7 Dos and Don’ts for Plus-Size Wedding Dresses

If you are looking for a perfect plus size wedding dress, you know that it can be a little challenging for you. To help you find a perfect plus-size bridal dress, we’re sharing few tips. Take a look:

Plus Size wedding Dress

Do: Look for ruching

Wedding dress with ruching can be very forgiving, regardless of your body shape or height. Choose a dress that is ruched in an asymmetrical pattern as it brings the eye up to face.

Do: Consider A-line dress for maximum coverage

A-line dress is a great option for those brides who want maximum coverage. It gives a perfect silhouette to brides who want to be more discreet. In this type of wedding dress, the waist starts from the bust line and goes out into an A-line shape.

Do: Highlight your curves with a dropped waist or mermaid gown

If you are a plus-size bride and want to accentuate your curves, then consider a dropped waist gown which can be very sexy. A drop waist dress has fullness at the bottom of the gown and a flare at the bottom which is similar to mermaid silhouette. This style also helps in highlighting the hips in a flattering way.

Don’t: Go for thin fabrics

Avoid thin or light fabrics such as silk, chiffon as they can skim that body and magnify every little detail. Fabrics like lace, duchess satin, and taffeta are all very flattering for plus size brides.

Don’t: Choose something that doesn’t reflect your personality

It’s imperative to choose a dress that can reflect your personality. Hence, don’t go for anything which is not comfortable for you or doesn’t reflect your personality. Look for a plus size wedding dress and accessories that can make you feel as great as you look.

 

Don’t: Buy a style that you can’t carry

While shopping for your wedding dress, don’t be diffident. Be confident in selecting a dress as it will be your life’s biggest day. Tell you consultant what you want instead of buying a style under pressure. No matter how flattering a particular dress is, if you are not in love with it, don’t buy it. Stay true to yourself and don’t be afraid to seek advice from your friends or family.

Don’t: Choose a piece-meal gown

Avoid wedding gowns that look pieced together. Different fabrics or dress shapes that don’t transition smoothly can visually cut the body in unflattering ways. However, it doesn’t mean the whole gown has to be the same fabric. You just need to make sure that the each section of the gown segues gracefully and flows together.
