All You Need to Know to Shop Curvy Plus Size Wedding Gowns!

Wedding gown Shopping, Plus Size Wedding Gowns, Tips

Long gone are those days when a bride-to-be had to be a "perfect size 5" to look beautiful on her wedding day.  Nowadays, and thanks to the explosion of social media, a bride can her stunt herself down the aisle no matter what size she is.

Shopping for a wedding gown is already a stressful mission, but added to that you're looking for a plus-size or curvy gown can be downright discouraging. There are a few things you can do to help your shopping experience. First of all, let go of any ideas or notion that you need to be a certain size. I say whatever works for you. Nothing wrong with wanting to drop a few pounds before your big day, but if you have in your head you need to go from a size 12 to a 5, you are adding way too much stress on yourself. STOP IT!

What else can you do to ease your shopping experience:

Call ahead. I'm a big fan of calling before making a blank drive. That favorite specialty store may only go up to size 10 and you just saved yourself  gas and feeling  frustrated.

Understand your body and style. Mermaid gowns are not for every shape. A ball gown may make you look sizes bigger. It all depends on your body type, which brings me to my next tip.

Find  specialist, someone who specialty is gown and the woman's figure will  be better be equip to help you find the right fit for your body.

Stay away from over-embellished gowns, opt for a satin or heavy fabric which may work better with your shape. Too much embellishments may draw attention to problem areas.

You got it? Flaunt it!!! Those nice round boobs, that small waistline, that  Beyonce booty, yep flaunt it all.

Alterations is your friend. Found the perfect dress, but hate those long sleeves, ask if that can be altered and removed or vice-versa. Customized your dress to fit you and your personality. 

Specialty stores may carry an array of designer gowns, but you will lose the wide range of sizes. Check out your local wedding gown chain store. You may be surprised at what  you found and at reasonable prices.

Invest in good lingerie. Find a store that can accurately measure you for your right size bra or perfect shape-wear. Statistics states that 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size. Join the 20% and get fitted.

Comfort is key. Remember you're in your gown for a few  hours, you have to be comfortable, even in a second or reception gown. If you can't breathe in it while trying it on, imaging on your big day.

The right people. Bringing in the right crew with you as you shop, is BIG! You need an independent voice, who will help you find the wrong gown, not criticize or give opinions based on what they would wear.
