Guest Post: Plus Size Brides

We invited our friends at Trudy’s Bride to share some tips for all of our curvy brides.

 

Trudy is incredibly passionate about her plus size customers, that she refers to as “Glamour size”. Whether they are bridal, prom or other special occasions, we strive to offer our Glamour size customers fashionable options from our leading designers. With the average size bride being a size 14, we cater to the glamour brides who are looking for the same romantic fabrics, sexy silhouettes, modern sleek and vintage chic looks that every bride falls in love with!

 

Best silhouettes

The days of suggesting shape or style for glamour size brides are over! Curvy women want to show off their curves in everything from mermaid silhouettes to plunging backs. Others are more traditional and love the quieter understated gowns. The most important aspect in choosing a wedding dress for a size 4 or a size 18 is to find a well supported gown construction to confidently show off their best assets. The best silhouette is different for every bride and we have them all to show her in her size.

 

Figure-flattering fabrics

The best fabric is the one that best compliments the venue and wedding date she selects. For instance, a lighter fabric like chiffon, silk dupioni or jersey is perfect for a summer beach wedding while a satin or charmeuse is a wonderful choice for a formal winter wedding.

 

Every bride is beautiful and she deserves to feel that way, and at Trudy’s we make sure that she does. You must have the right dress in the right size to make that happen.
