Plus-size wedding blogger Shafonne Myers of Pretty Pear Bride shares the best looks for curvy brides-to-be from the Spring 2016 bridal runways.
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 of shopping for a plus-size wedding dress. Here, Shafonne shares the top three trends from Spring 2016 Bridal Fashion Week that are perfect for curvy girls.
The bridal runways are also a time to behold emerging wedding dress trends that will shortly take the wedding world by storm. And who wouldn't love that? For plus-size brides, though, it may be hard to look at the styles walking the runway and imagine them accentuating your curves. This, dear brides, is where you are all wrong!
First of all: Remember that no one looks like a model! Besides, there were plenty of new trends that would satisfy a range of brides' styles and shapes, let alone the many that could easily enhance a plus-size girl's figure. From flattering pops of color to daring sexy silhouettes, our favorite bridal designers weren't lacking swoon-worthy styles that could easily translate onto a plus-size bride's gorgeous shape.
A few takeaways to keep in mind: Any color but white instantly flatters, curve-hugging is never a bad thing, and belts are an instant waist-whittler.
