Our Favorite Designers For Plus-Size Brides
There is no greater buzzkill for a bride-to-be than to enter a bridal salon, excited to find the dress of her dreams, only to learn that all of the sample dresses on the floor are a one-size-does-not-fit-all size 8. How is a woman supposed to daydream about walking down the aisle in a jaw-dropping dress if she can’t even see what it will look like on her? Thankfully, more and more bridal designers and retailers are offering plus-size options for curvier brides. Here’s a round-up of a few of our favorite designers and styles.
1. Wtoo Curve Collection. Brought to you by Watters, a legendary name in bridal fashion, the on-trend gowns in the Wtoo Curve Collection are “fit to flaunt.” Created for fashion-forward brides, the collection features stunning details, such as lace appliques, tulle and head-turning beadwork. And with styles starting at $900, you’ll like the price tag as much as you love the fabulous gowns!
2. Oleg Cassini. Fashion designer Oleg Cassini never fails to disappoint with his plus-size bridal gowns, which are available in sizes 16W to 26W. Offering brides a range of styles, from timeless ballgowns to more body-conscious silhouettes, Oleg Cassini understands that curvier brides want the same selection that non-plus size brides have. So, whether you’re a vintage-loving gal looking for a tea-length frock (our favorite!), or a classic beauty who wants to walk down the aisle in head-to-toe lace, you’ll find there’s something for everyone in this stylish collection.
3. David’s Bridal Woman. David’s Bridal is a trusted one-stop shopping destination for all bridal fashion, and they do not disappoint when it comes to catering to the plus-size market. Gowns in the David’s Bridal Woman collection are crafted with the same quality and attention to detail that the retailer is known for. Created based on measurements taken from real women, the gowns in this collection range from size 14W to 26W and feature the season’s top trends in figure-flattering silhouettes.
