Here's the truth: Not every bride-to-be can be—or even aspires to be—a size 0 on her wedding day. But for those of us who celebrate (and flaunt!) our gorgeous real-girl curves, buying a designer plus sized wedding dress can be a little complicated. To the rescue: Our roundup of the best plus size wedding dresses for full-figured brides-to-be.
From beloved mass market retailers such as David's Bridal and Watters to newer brands like Eloquii for Stone Fox Bride, we've found absolutely gorgeous plus size wedding dresses that will not only fit your body, but flatter it as well. Waist-cinching crystal-encrusted belts, glamorously slimming ruched bodices, and curve-skimming mermaid silhouettes all enhance your best assets. Meanwhile, illusion necklines with appliqués, Hollywood-inspired sheaths, and romantic lace keep these wedding dresses current and totally on-trend.
Plus, unlike most bridal designers, who offer custom gown sizing at a hiked-up price, the sizes in this selection don't determine the price tag. (Best of all: A few of our picks even fall in the less-than-$1,000 range!).
No matter your style or your shape, here are a handful of pretty plus size wedding dresses you'll love to try.
