Shafonne Myers, owner and CEO of Pretty Pear Bride, the world's only magazine for plus-size brides, knows a thing or two about fashion and weddings. As a certified wedding and event planner and a gal with a serious love of all-things weddings (and a former bride herself), Shafonne understands the unique challenges plus-size brides face.

Shopping for plus-size lingerie can be tough since not all stores carry bigger sizes. And those that do, often have a limited selection. So what's a curvy bride-to-be to do when looking for that sexy wedding-night look? Just remember these three tips to make the process a little less stressful — and a lot more fun.

Remember it's all about the perfect fit.
Size is everything when dealing with lingerie. Some think that going with a smaller size will make them look slimmer, but that's not true. Instead, choosing a the right size will not only flatter you more, but it will also be way more comfortable. The right size should highlight your best assets and hide the negative.

Embrace color.
Don't be afraid to incorporate a fun pop of color. If you're looking for something to show your sexy side, add some shades of red. Want to show off the softer side? Think pastels. You don't have to wear all black.

Be confident.
Lingerie is meant to make you feel and look sexy and it's hard to do that when you aren't feeling confident. Don't be afraid of your curves and hide behind them — embrace them!
