How To Find The Perfect Plus Size Wedding Dresses

Here's how you should measure and other tips:

  • Stand up straight with arms hanging down by your side
  • Measure your bust at the fullest part
  • Measure your waist at your natural waistline
  • Measure your hips at the fullest part
  • When you measure wear the undergarments you’ll be wearing under your wedding dress

There are many plus size wedding dresses available everywhere, but don’t forget to look in other departments for formal wear that would be suitable for your wedding. It can a short dress or mid length as well as a long gown.

Comfort is the most important thing. It will be a long day, so make sure it’s not ruined by uncomfortable clothing or shoes.

There are many online sites, such as eBay, that offer wedding dresses and other attire in just about any size. 

If you decide to order your dress be sure and ask if it may be returned if it doesn’t fit correctly. Have someone else measure you. 

As far as a flattering styles go, these are things to remember:

  • A-line dresses are the most flattering
  • Empire waists hide the tummy
  • Keep the style of your plus size wedding dress simple with a minimum of decoration. If it’s too fussy it makes you look heavier
  • Gowns that are too tight also make you look heavier
  • A pretty neckline draws attention to your pretty face
  • Sleeves should be fitted (no puffy sleeves)
  • It is best not to wear a plus size wedding dress that is made from fabric that clings. Fabric that’s too shiny isn’t good either
  • Wear a bra and other undergarments that give really good support
  • By all means play up your best feature

By all means shop around a lot to get the best price. You don’t have to spend a fortune. If you are lucky enough to have someone sew your gown for you (like mom) that’s great because it will be done with a lot of love. 

Remember when you walk down the aisle the groom will think you’re the most beautiful bride he’s ever seen.
