i think you just have to find the right dress that fits your shape and style. a-line style is flattering on most women ive noticed.  every woman should feel gorgeous on her wedding day.

I have never heard that before, but it is absolutely not true! I think every woman should be able to wear whatever she wants ALL the time, but especially on her wedding day. I am 5’9” and a size 10, and I look fabulous in that dress ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am sure you do too!!!

PPPPPFFFFFFT NO WAY! I am definitely a big girl (street size 18) and I found a dress! Sure, I had to pay a fee for the extra fabric, and I couldn’t try on the dress that I wanted because the sample wouldn’t go over my hips.  But I tried on enough to know what features/designs I liked and looked good on my body to know that my dress would look awesome in my size.  I’m not sure about the super high end designers (not in my price range anyways), but the dresses are out there.

definitely not true, but i have read some unkind comments from smaller women who had to order larger sizes due to the bridal sizes… and they irked me, but thank goodness for the little function that allows me to close the post since i don’t like it :D.. coming from a size 14/16 i personally raise my finger to them (and i for once don’t mean left ring finger)

eta that a-lines aren’t the only option for a curvy gal… (check out the post i started a few weeks ago after reading the same bs)

Proof that a curvy girl can rock the heck outta mermaid/trumpet dresses

What?

I don’t know where you read that! I am a size 10 and loved the way I looked in wedding dresses. You definitely have to get the right dress for your shape but there is definitely a wedding dress out there for ALL shapes and sizes!

I hope you can find something.  I don’t have any personal experience with the higher dress sizes but I have seen a lot of pictures of girls of all sizes in dresses that are great for their body!

@gem: i don’t think they meant harm by them, but they are very sizist remarks.  it’s like saying something is too much like a (insert racial remark) would wear.  Stings just as much, and shows what a person really thinks in my opinion no matter how nice they try to make it.  I mean seriously?!

As for me I wish I was taller so my fat could be spread out lmao!! i was shocked that Crystal Renn and I wear the same size because I look like a fat and plump grandma next to her amazonian self.  And at your heigth I am quite sure that you’re a great and voluptous drink of water ๐Ÿ˜€

Flat out, the answer is no. NO. There is no woman too big to rock a wedding gown.

 

I’ll give the benefit of the doubt to people who say otherwise and think maybe they mean giant, cathedral length gown. But still, if that is your dream, or you want a sheath, either way NO. Rock it.

I’m sure that you can find dresses that fit you pretty well.  I think most of the sames are around a street size 10/12.  Try to have fun with it for sure!
