Let’s be honest: as exciting and wonderful as the process of buying a wedding dress may seem, it can be very stressful! Especially for curvaceous brides. In the salons, 90 percent of the assortment is intended for owners of slender figures. Chanfashion convinced that every body type is beautiful, and brides in size plus size should not feel uncomfortable. All girls will certainly find their perfect wedding dress! To help you with this, we will share some of our tips.
Find the perfect silhouette
You know your figure like no one else, don’t you? Depending on what features you would like to hide, emphasize or smooth out, you need to choose the style of the dress. A heavy top will help visually lighten the sleeves, and a properly selected neckline. If you’re not ready to be the second Kardashian and show off your curvaceous thighs, look at the A‑line and ball gowns.
Details that work for you
Sleeves and belt are two details that can absolutely change the look of your outfit and set the right accents. Despite the undeniable popularity of strapless wedding dresses (and they look luxurious on curvy brides), if you want to narrow your shoulders and hide voluminous arms, even a small sleeve on the dress will do the trick. The belt does wonders at all: it emphasizes the waist, creates an incredibly sexy and feminine silhouette, if placed under the chest, it emphasizes the bust and distracts from the protruding tummy.
Find the right fabric
More dense fabrics, embossed, decorated with embroidery, lace, sequins, beads, pleated are ideal for plump brides. They smooth everything out, hide imperfections and mask the heavier features of the figure, ultimately creating a streamlined, attractive silhouette.
Buy the right size
Don’t look at the numbers, look at yourself in the mirror. There is nothing wrong with buying a dress in the largest size. For example, if your bust is in size 12 (in the European size grid), but your hips definitely need a size 18, we advise you to buy a dress in size 18 and sew it in the bust. Buying a tight dress is unnecessary stress! Remember: you can always take in, but adding a size is quite problematic!
Are you already imagining your outfit? It remains to meet him in person! Try on as many dresses as your heart desires and remember that you will look beautiful on your wedding day!
What would your plus size wedding dress look like?
Model Mermaid made of lace fabric looks very impressive. The dramatic deep V neckline is a key accent and will work to your advantage. A graceful train stretches the silhouette as much as possible and adds romance to the image. An excellent choice for a luxurious bride.
The same dress model, but complemented by a deep neckline in front, looks bold and bright! For a wedding in the warm season — a great choice.
Do you want to hide the volumes, but the soul does not lie with the ball gown? How do you choose a model with a straight cut, but with a beautiful addition on the sides? The side parts can be made of tulle, light and translucent, or made of heavy material. And both options will cope with the task — visually divide your silhouette, which is great for tall girls, hide volumes on the hips and “draw” the waist.
Take a breath. This vintage style is so chic and effortless. Pair an all-lace dress with a basic U‑neck silk chemise for a romantic bridal look. Look at the magnificent detailing of lace on the open body: on the neckline and on the sleeves. How beautifully the high neckline and deep neckline harmonize. Delight!
Check out this lace dress with a classic neckline and wide straps that sit well on the shoulders. An unusual waist and a loose skirt look wonderful on any figure. To add even more attractiveness to the owner of the dress, the designers made a side cutout.
If you love minimalism, choose a gorgeous robe dress that is modern and elegant. Laconic cut, clean lines — this style undoubtedly suits brides of various shapes. Airy, ethereal sleeves, gathered into a thin cuff, complete the look. Flawless!
Beauty is in the details
One bright detail can take the whole look to the next level. A deep neckline on the back or a lace accent on the hips draws attention to the beautiful lines of the bride. The mermaid style can be made more elegant with the help of longitudinal embroidery, and it is easy to visually separate the silhouette by choosing a dress, the bottom and top of which are made of different materials or different shades.
Emphasis on color
A wedding dress doesn’t have to be white. Do not forget about the abundance of flowers, which will not only make your bride’s image stylish and individual, but also allow you to shift the focus from forms to a wow-look!
We’ve shown you quite a few plus size wedding dresses and aren’t they chic? One is better than the other!

And go to bridal salons in a good mood and with confidence that you will find the right outfit for you!
