No matter your size or your shape, your wedding dress should make you feel beautiful and empowered, it should enhance your best assets and most importantly, it should fit you perfectly. With so many options to choose from, wedding dress shopping can seem daunting but luckily we've done the work for you by curating an edit of stunning plus size wedding dresses in a multitude of silhouettes and styles to flatter and flaunt your figure.
When you embark on your wedding dress search, first identify what assets you want to accentuate. If you love your shoulders then opt for a strapless or off-the-shoulder number. If you love your decolletage, then take the plunge with a deep-v neckline. If you want to show off those legs, go for a mini dress or a gown with a daring high slit. Then, let waist-cinching fabrics, glamorously slimming ruched bodices, and curve-skimming silhouettes do the rest!
