The Big Problem With Plus-Size Wedding Dresses
A few months ago, when Who What Wear photographed the wardrobe of broadcaster and journalist, Caryn Franklin, we talked of many things but in particular body diversity and the severe lack of bridal options for the plus-size markets. I’ve always struggled to find really great curve wedding dress options to include in our wedding content—sure, if you have a whole heap of cash to spare and oodles of confidence, you could order yourself something bespoke, but what if you simply have options to peruse and actually try on? The fact is, even a size 12 is going to struggle in some bridal stores to give the samples a spin—let alone feel self-assured enough to order something in your desired size, should it even exist. You can feel as fabulous as can be 365 days of the year, but even the most positive women out there can feel less-than-adequate when it comes to this major style decision.If you want something a little more unusual, I’d suggest this floral-embellished beauty from White Rose. They have so many pretty options but WP347 from their plus size range, Graceful, gets my vote.Danish wedding brand Modeca’s Curve Bridal Dubai Gown is a real stunner with it’s multiple, intricate lace layers.Maggie Sottero’s Sorrento Lynette dress is about as elaborate and princess-y as they come. Beautiful.If you want to follow Kate Middleton’s trend for long lace sleeves, then this would be my #1 plus-size choice: Envy by Phoenix’s GR5034.I think the fitted-but-simple silhouette of Callista’s Glastonbury Dress just feels so modern.Who says you have to go long? Anne Barge’s asymmetric Ryland dress looks like a fun frock to get married in.Studio Levana’s Mali Dress is perfect for girls who are looking for something more minimal and understated. This is one of Marisa’s key brands. Next up, the most comfortable wedding shoes.
