Plus Size Wedding Dress

The bride’s entrance into the church is one of the most anticipated and exciting moments of marriage. And a good part of this expectation turns in tone of the curiosity of the guests on what will be the dress. Although it is a pleasure to go through browsing magazines, visiting stores and experimenting with different models, there are details that need to be observed when choosing the outfits of the long dreamed day.


No matter if you are going to have it made or rent the dress, to get right in the choice, first you need to be tuned with the trends of the season for the bride fashion. The second step is to define what bridal style you are: romantic, classic, bare-bones, bold or laid-back. And third, is to identify, according to your style, the models that best fit your body type.

For the more fortunate, the lean, tall and slender, the choice can be much easier, since almost all models usually fall well. Hence, it is only to choose the preferred style and keep an eye on the trends.

For the more ‘hot’ brides the task is not so simple. As much as most try, not all can get to the big day with the body they want. If you are part of this team, the solution is to choose models that provide a slimming effect, that is, that helps to disguise grease, small imperfections, valuing the strengths of your body and hiding the weaknesses.

How To Choose A Plus Size Dress

Fashion consultant Eliane de Rezende Brechtbuhl, director of e.pia Consultoria de Estilo says that wedding dresses for plus size women, models with V-necklines are the most suitable. The model is up and it is one of the bets for 2014.

It also suggests vertical and diagonal cuts, evasion skirt and no frills, which gives a slimming effect and leaves the look more beautiful. Another option are princess cut dresses with cutout at the waist in beak. “This model favors this biotype. With a transverse and skirt with a male fold in front, the hips will appear narrower,” he says.

Wear Or Not Neckline?

Very prominent necklines and short skirts do not match the occasion or the body overweight. Short or long sleeve is a choice that will depend on the type of ceremony and also whether or not the bride has thinner arms or not. Since the neckline will have fallen, which has had its reign for many years, it is good if the bride lets the veil or some other dress cover a little of the shoulders.
Fabrics And Embroidery

According to the consultant, embroidery or medium-sized lace applications more concentrated near the head and tapering towards the wrists is a great trick.”Details on the central part give the illusion of fine tuning the silhouette and look great for brides plus size,” he says.

Regarding the fabrics, she says that it is better to have a simple dress model with a good quality fabric than the other way around. This is because the type of tissue can interfere with the fit of the model in the body. Know the characteristics of each:

Income-Traditional, but very current, remains a classic. It is more used in detail.

Chiffon-Made of silk, it is very light and transparent, perfect for the second layer.
