Each bride has the right to look stunning on her wedding day no matter what size she wears, what she looks like or who she is marrying. This is why here at Devotion Dresses, we have a huge collection of wedding dresses made specifically for plus size brides.
All brides want their wedding dress to highlight their best features and hide the flaws and for a plus size figure, there are a few bridal gown silhouettes that can help the bride look her best. For instance, a plus size A-line wedding dress with an empire waistline can help provide coverage and obscure the bottom part of the brides figure in a subtle, yet effective way. Other great choices include ball gown wedding dresses or bridal gowns with a drop waist that can help accentuate the brides waist. Additionally, you might not think that a mermaid or trumpet wedding dress will look good on you, but these silhouettes are actually an excellent choice for plus size brides, as they help lengthen the figure, making you appear slimmer and taller while highlighting your curves in a very flattering way.
There are a few rules that every bride should follow when selecting a plus size wedding dress for her big day. First of all, if the top and bottom parts of your body fall into different sizes, find a dress in the larger size and then get the gown tailored to fit the smaller part of your body. It is much easier and cheaper to decrease the size of the dress than to increase it. The next rule is that a dress with ruching can do a great job at lengthening your figure and hiding its flaws - asymmetrical ruching works best for plus size brides. Another important rule for plus size wedding dress shopping is to look for a gown made from the right fabric - thin fabrics will closely fit your figure, revealing every detail and flaw. On the other hand, fabrics like organza, taffeta or lace have much more structure to them and they can help obscure flaws in your figure and look very flattering.
