The Struggles Of A Plus Size Bride To Be In A Nutshell.
You got engaged, and your heart is full of excitement. Your family and friends are calling and texting you back and forth, congratulating you, then BOOM.

It hits you like a truck, and you are back to your senses, hahaha. Wait! I need to go wedding dress shopping… How? Where can I find … Whom do I call to come with me? What…?

You have all these questions coming from left and right. While you are still trying to answer the first question, you are hit by the next question, and many more questions keep coming.

Now you are helpless because you have endless questions without answers. You go to your computer and search for bridal stores, boom they all pop out and you schedule an appointment.

On the day of the appointment, you’re so ready to try on wedding dresses like we see on the T.V. show (Say Yes To The Dress). Your attendant for the day (that’s if you even have one) takes you inside and gives you a room.

She goes to look for wedding dresses you can try on, then crickets.
You are in the room waiting endlessly for hours and no one is coming because there’s nothing in your size… Horror movie part 1!

Wedding dress shopping can be challenging for all brides-to-be, but for plus-size brides-to-be, it’s the fear of the unknown. Because of the stress and fear of not finding the perfect fitting dress.

I know the struggles you go through as a plus-size bride, chubby brides, petite brides, short brides, tall brides, big arms, big bust, broad shoulders, flat-chested, or a fat bride.

Whatever category you fall into, I totally understand what you are going through to find a wedding dress that fits, that’s why I went full-on into custom-designing the perfect dress that fits all your curves perfectly in all the right places.

Plus-size brides have some pressing questions that need answers as soon as possible. Here are the questions below.

What is the most flattering dress style for plus

As a plus-size bridal wear designer, I will strongly advise you to explore your options. Try on different silhouettes, because you might be surprised you fall in love with a dress you never thought it would look great on you.

Every curvy girl is different and carries her weight differently. The most important thing is to try dresses that you normally won’t try on, because plus-size shapes can be tricky.

Most times, mermaid dresses are the go-to silhouette for plus size ladies, because we think it is the most flattering dress style for plus size.

How can I hide my belly fat in my wedding dress?

This is one of the most common struggles of a plus-size bride to be. It all depends on what the bride wants. Every bride is different, most brides want a built-in corset and some brides don’t.

There are wedding dresses that are equipped to help hide the belly fat and show off those beautiful curves of yours.
Plus size brides-to-be always ask:

Can I wear a corset under my wedding dress?

Should I wear Spanx to try on a wedding dress?

Sure, you should wear Spanx if you want to. Spanx help smoothes out all the dimples and makes the dress look smoother. Always wear any undergarment you plan to wear on your wedding day, during your dress fitting.

How can I hide my big arms in my wedding dress?

There are two ways I will suggest you hide your arms in your wedding dress.
First, request for nude tulle sleeves, designed with beaded lace applique to your wedding dress. That makes it look classy and also does the job of hiding your arms.

Secondly, you can have tulle straps to give your arms the illusion that they are smaller.

How do you buy a plus size wedding dress?

Buying a plus size wedding dress from stores can be a little challenging, but it can be easier if you call them a few days before your appointment.

You can also custom design your wedding dress to fit your curves perfectly in all the right places.
