Wanna Show Those Curves?


Are you the curvier than average woman who likes to flaunt what shes’ got? Then here are some tips to work that body on your wedding day!

1. Choose the Flattering Materials

Choose materials rayon, silk, cotton, satin, taffeta. These all are really comfortable materials and almost always work in your favor. Steer away from clingy materials that create static easy, especially in a free flowing dress because it may end up “clinging” to you in an unflattering way.

2. Use Proper Necklines

Being a plus size bride has many advantages, especially having a great bust! For the best looks use a v-neck, halter tops, sweetheart, or scoop necklines because they allow for proper support but give you just the right amount of cleavage.

3. To Strap or No Strap?

Straps can give some brides more comfort in a dress and some feel they restrain them. For top heavy brides a strap can sometimes be your best friend, but if you want something more than just the usual spaghetti strap try using an off the shoulder look. It is a great way to show off your shoulders while still getting some lift. For those of you who choose to not use a strap but still want some support built in bone and/or a corset is the way for you!

4. Be aware of the shape of your curves

Even though you love your curves you may not look great in every dress. Certain shapes will be more flattering to a plus size bride. If you want the curvy look in all the right places try wearing A-lines, Mermaids, Sheath, Siren (Trumpet Flare), Empire, and Princess.  Also a dropped waist is great for elongating a short waist!

5. LOVE
The best tip is to love yourself for who you are and the way you look. Confidence is the greatest accessory you can wear on your wedding day. Even the skinniest bride can be blown away by a full figured woman who works it! So strut your stuff ladies and congratulations on your big day!
