Plus size wedding dresses

Recommended Posts

Okay ladies...here we go...I'm at a loss. Trying to decide what is the best dress for a plus size lady. I'm a size 16 and haven't tried on a dress yet (going this weekend to start looking). I don't even know where to start. So I was thinking...if maybe some of you wonderful ladies could show me the dresses you got and how they fit it would help to at least have a starting point.

I was worried before I went too!

 

I wear a size 16 right now as well and there were tons of choices. In fact I tried on 26 dresses.

 

Here is the dress I fell in love with and bought!

i had a really hard time too....i couldn't get them over my chest! it was very upsetting, i actually bought my dress and really didn't get to try it on! everything is made for a street size of 8, they say size 16 but they're really a size 6! in all my dress shopping i only tried on 1 dress!

My advice is try lots of styles on! Dresses look completely different on the hanger than they do when you put them on yourself!

 

And you ladies all look BEAUTIFUL in those dresses!

it is the private label for the bridal shop so unfortunately i can't give a desginer name. but i have seen similar dresses to it at other shops. i know that watters brides has a similar one and i believe it a great price too.

 

but i can give you the details so you know what to look for, it's alencon lace, simple a-line. i did a lot of research on what would look good with my large breasted apple shaped short frame and it kept coming back to a v-neck which i love! i can't pull off a strapless i need the support.

 

have you seen any dresses that you just can't get out of you head yet?

It is your day. Get what you want to wear. Try David's Bridal or on line wedding shops and just get some ideas for what you are looking for and then go try in on

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
