Shopping for your wedding dress is one of the most exciting aspects of planning your big day. If you’re a curvaceous bride, it’s time to celebrate those curves. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite plus size wedding dresses, from the traditional to the contemporary.

Make the experience extra special by doing some research before you shop – choosing bridal boutiques that stock dress designers you love, and taking along people whose opinion you trust, perhaps your mum or your bridesmaids.

Traditional Elegance

These gowns encapsulate the romance and style of a more traditional wedding, occasionally featuring a little shimmer or sparkle to offer a hint of glamour.

 

1. We love the retro-inspired dresses by Scarlett & Jo. This scalloped lace neck and train wedding dress features long lace sleeves and a gathered waist to create that perfect hourglass silhouette. It’s also very reasonably priced at £200, and available in sizes 12 to 32.

2. Callista design gowns specifically for the fuller figure bride, with each of their beautiful dresses offering style, support and perfect fit. The ‘Botticelli’ gown in beautiful tulle is one of our favourites, particularly in this elegant mocha shade.

3. If you like the idea of a strapless gown but would prefer a little more coverage, consider an illusion neck over a sweetheart neckline. This gown from Bonny Bridal graces the figure with its beaded bodice and gently flowing A-line skirt.

Contemporary Chic

6. Whether you’re all about boho, or just looking for something a little bit different, these modern gowns boast contemporary style. Fit for a princess, this ethereal gown by Allure Bridals accentuates in all the right places. We’re just a little bit in love with the silver bodice – a dreamy dress for a whimsical wedding.

7. For a more bohemian style, the ‘Matisse’ gown by Callista is breathtaking. It’s also a great choice for brides who would like a little coverage around the top of the arms, and would look stunning at an evening celebration.

8. The bridal lace prom dress from Scarlett & Jo is a great choice for brides looking for a shorter, more contemporary gown. Vintage style, the full skirt and sweetheart detail across the bust flatter the figure.

9. If you’re not comfortable in white or ivory, choose an alternative shade that flatters your skin tone. This pretty gown from the Unforgettable collection at Bonny Bridal features a graceful sweetheart neckline and lace cap sleeves.

10. There are few gowns more flattering than the stunning lines of this ballgown by Allure Bridals. We love the panels of lace and sheer on the skirt, while the train is wonderfully elegant.
