Below are a few tips that may help you find the right plus-size designer wedding dress.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it!
Instead of focusing on what you’d like to hide, place the focus on the curves you’d like accentuate. If you have a fabulous bust, make the most of it by showing it off in a V-neckline, or embrace your sexy curves with a fit and flare silhouette.
Try to avoid strapless ball gowns, which will simply make you look bigger than you really are, and, say no to anything with a strapless corset, unless you want to be pulling it up while you say I do!
A-Line, Empire or Sheath?
You’d be hard pressed to make a mistake in wearing an A-line wedding dress, it’s flattering, elegant and flares at the hips, or,
If it’s old world romance you’re after, you’ll do absolutely fine if you head towards a high-wasted empire gown that fits just below your bust and then flows freely from there to the floor.
Instead of hiding your curves, why not go all out to celebrate your curves in a sheath wedding dress? If you’ve passed the point of being willing to hide, a sheath dress will be magical and powerful on you! It’s who you are!
