A Plus Size Blushing Bride In White by Vera Wang

To don designer duds on one of her most important days in her life, a plus size woman could once cream and hope that her bank account had a few more zeros at the end. However, that no longer needs to be true nor does it have to be a dream.

    They’re very pretty but I’m wondering why they didn’t use plus size models. It would make the dresses more credible. I don’t want to see a size 0 in something that fits up to a size 26. Let’s at least see a size 16 or 18. Hopefully David’s Bridal sees this and rethinks their marketing stance.

      I am wondering if because they only used one model for the dresses? I am not sure… but seeing it available does give me hope and excitement… Trying to see the light here? maybe? 

  • Plmamuscia

    My thoughts exactly . . . let’s see what a plus size girl looks like in these dresses!

    • Sohoaccessories

       I had the same thoughts

      • http://thecurvyfashionista.mariedenee.com Marie Denee

        I thought so too… but I loved the dresses and was really excited and had to share… :/

      :) Maybe I will connect with my friend who works there and who is getting married soon! There may be a part two? lol

    I’m not seeing how 2 of the bridal gowns and much of the bridesmaids dresses would be plus size friendly. They seem to be made for people in the mid ranges with most flat bellies and small amounts of rolly bits lol… I know I couldn’t rock anything but the last 2 gowns and I’m a size 22.

      I will look into it more! :) I think depending on different shapes some may or may not work… I know the big poof wouldnt work that well for me, but it may for  others… so we shall see! :) 

      • Tracygmccauley

        It actually works well, creates an awesome waist!

  • Chocl8child

    They’re beautiful but I’m not sure a size 26 would work in these styles. I’m an 18-20 and I couldn’t see any of these as an option….but, at least there’s an option. Sane goes for the bridal party dresses….Im glad the size options are there, but I’m not sure these would be figure flattering on anyone above a 16 or 18. Just my thoughts.

      I smell a challenge.. I am going to enlist my friend… LOL

    Ok I’m not getting married any time soon, but I will totally stake out my local David’s Bridal and try them on just to see how they work on a plus size lady. Who shall I send the pictures to??

    • http://thecurvyfashionista.mariedenee.com Marie Denee

      Send em to me… I will share!!!!!

    These dresses are really not plus friendly in my view. They aren’t styled with our figures in mind, they are blown up versions of skinny girl dresses. When oh when are designers going to start designing for US!?

    What would have worked? Some kind of sleeve beautifully cut to create a long line from neck to wrist… perhaps lace or organza, or even illusion … with the point being to avoid the hulking linebacker/ spilling out of the dress look.  A structured shoulder, moving in to a deep v neck. Depending on the body, could be a princess neck, a portrait collar, something a bit more jacket -like (reference Duchess Kate). Snug fitting bust line into a snug band just under the waist. Depending on the body type, either an empire shape, or a curve hugging sheath shape, or a corsette body. If The body is pear shaped a ball gown skirt works. If it is curvy and proportionate, the mermaid shape would be drop dead gorgeous. If the body is apple shaped, follow the narrowest part under the bust as long as its flattering, then move into either an empire or an a-line shape. From THAT point start the skirt embellishment if the bride must have it.

    I would rather see exquisite fabric and workmanship, and couture crisp lines than bouffant volume. Plus size doen’t need MORE volume, it needs the volume we already have to be beautifully draped!

    I was married 2 years ago, and had to design my own dress and have it made. I used the best white raw silk I could find, used a coat like structure with sleeves, and an undergarment in a contrasting fabric  to create a lean, long line. I chose to put beadwork under the bust line to create a nice curve.  The dress was a total hit, with many people commenting on how perfectly it suited me. I would have loved to just be able to go and buy it, without all that trouble!

    I wish my future sister in law had chosen one of those bridesmaids gowns for us to wear. Lovely!

      Right? I know… This kind of haves me thinking fab thoughts… and I do not even daydream about getting married! LOL
