Every woman has the right to pursue the perfect bridal gown, but it can be difficult for plus-size brides to find a dress that fits their shape and style.
Luckily, wedding dress designers are making more of an effort than ever to accommodate fuller figure brides in their collections (even Vera Wang!). Take a look at some wedding dress styles that can hide your imperfections while flattering your curves.
A-line dresses create one long, vertical line. An A-line skirt hugs the waist creating a slimmer waistline. Bottom-heavy brides always look great in a classic A-line silhouette. With this style, you can find a dress with off-the-shoulder sleeves for a look that broadens your shoulders and balances your bottom half with the full skirt. Choose A-line for a simple and classy look.
A sweetheart neckline is one of the most popular among fuller figure brides. This neckline is a romantic neckline, forming a heart shape and showing a hint of cleavage which works best with larger busts.
Don’t be afraid of sleeves! Use long sleeves to draw attention to your upper body, especially if you have fuller hips. Long sleeves can conceal larger arms and cover square shoulders. Short sleeves are ideal for covering your shoulders if that is not your best asset. Short sleeves can also balance your look if you are pear shaped. Or consider a cute chic jacket to go with your gown instead!
