Tips in Selecting Ideal Wedding Dress for Plus-Sized Brides

Being over-played and hyped size six or eight does not mean you cannot look pretty good on your wedding day.

It is just a matter of picking the right dress that’ll not only complement your shape and curves, but will make your groom swoon as you slowly march down to him.

The three steps below provide some form of help in doing that:
1. The perfect fabric

[The fabric of the dress you choose could make you look and feel great, or bloated and short of confidence.

If the intention is to downplay the belly, bum, or any other body part, a very light material is not recommendable. That means fabrics such as chiffon and some organzas might not be so ideal.
Basically, the point is to make your dress in such a way that while the fullness and lushness of your body will be played on, bumps, bulges, and other unflattering body parts will be minimised.
2. Find a flattering silhouette

For every body type, there is a silhouette that does wonder for your looks.

For the plus sized bride, ballgowns and A-lines are great, especially with ruching around the waist to accentuate the fullness of the hips and curves.

Mermaid gowns could be terrific, too.
3. Confidence

Whatever happens, a massive dose of confidence will make you look extra beautiful.

What is important is that you feel comfortable and confident in your gown.

While there might be expert opinions on what you can wear and what you cannot, if your heart is set on something that you feel will look terrific on you, go for it!

Anything a lepa can rock, with some alterations here and there, it’ll look even more beautiful on a plus-sized bride.
