Plus Size Wedding Dresses Shopping For All Body Types

By on November 13, 2009

Shopping and looking for the perfect wedding gown is in itself a stressful task. You keep getting disappointed because you still haven’t found what you’re looking for even after such a long time of searching and seeking.

While it is already hard to look for a wedding gown for a perfect body, think of how hard it would be for fully-bodied brides? While there are already numerous shops that specialize on plus size wedding dresses, still, the journey is not that easy. Why is this so?

Dealing with the Shop Attendants

Sad as it may seem, but there are really shop attendants who would become unfriendly. And this behaviour is exhibited whether you are looking for size 4 wedding gowns or plus size wedding dresses.

You are not sure why they are behaving that way because in the first place, they should be looking for customers. Especially that they are in the wedding business, they must exude joy and happiness all the time! More so if they are dealing with customers who are looking for plus size wedding dresses!

Getting the Right Style

Often, getting the appropriate style for wedding gowns, especially for plus size wedding dresses, is the most challenging part of all. You have to consider a lot of things just so you’ll end up in a stunning wedding gown!

For one, you have to know your body shape. Know the best and “not-so-good” parts of your body so you would know what to emphasize and what to conceal. And this tip holds true for both “skinny” and plus size wedding dresses.

You also need to ensure that you have the correct fabric for your wedding gown. If you want a gown that does not cling to your body (especially if you’re full-bodied), then go for mikado or duchesse satin. Stay away from chiffon and crepe.

Getting the Perfect Timing

Believe it or not, you must shop for your wedding gowns, especially for plus size wedding dresses, at least 8 months before the wedding – that is if you’ve had the luxury of time to plan the wedding. This will give you enough time in searching for the designer, the style, the fabric and all accessories that will go with it.

Given that timeframe, you still have time to trim down or to gain some weight – whichever way you want it – in order be in perfect shape for the wedding. Most full-bodied brides want to be as petite as possible during their wedding day so they don’t have to visit the section on plus size wedding dresses. If you’re one of them, then eight months is more than enough time to exercise and go on a diet.

Wedding gown

Overall, the idea of searching for a wedding gown is exciting. It is as enthralling and thrilling as getting engaged. Therefore, you must make this task as fun as possible. And this should hold true for brides of all sizes and shapes. There shouldn’t be a difference in experience for women who shop for size 4 gowns or plus size wedding dresses!
