Are you pleasantly plump and curvaceous and looking for a wedding dress? Shopping for a wedding dress as a full figured bride can be daunting but it doesn’t have to be! You just need to consider a few important things when shopping. The most important being your own figure, shape, and personal style. Choosing figure flattering fabric is a good starter. Lace is a great choice for women of all sizes, but for plump women it provides a look that doesn’t show off every bump and curve.

Thicker fabrics such as taffeta are also ideal for curvy brides because they smooth everything out, creating a streamlined silhouette. For some full figured women, strapless styles tend to make shoulders look wider and also may not provide the required support therefore you may want to consider opting for styles with thicker straps or sleeves. However, if this is not the case for you….Go ahead and show off that cleavage and feel beautiful in your skin! Also be mindful of the areas you would like to less attention and avoid using things like beaded bodices and sequin or lace appliqués around these areas.
