  • poll: Ruffles on a Plus size bride?

    I like ruffles on brides of all sizes!

    Depends on the ruffles and the bride

    Ruffles are OK on smaller brides but never a good idea on a plus size bride

    I hate ruffles on anyone

    While I won’t lie and say I think all styles look good on everybody, I will say that most of my dress opinions are totally dependant on the bride and the dressSmile I’m a big believer in dresses working with your silhouette, as the bridal experts say. So it has nothing to do with a number on a scale and ruffles are beautiful on a LOT of gals!

    So ya..just depends on the dress and the bride. Everything I’ve seen in this thread looks oddly flattering on everybody LOL.

    @BillysBride2011:  <= This exactly.  I tried on an Allure ruffled gown in a size 8 (which is four sizes too small) and loved it!  It didn’t make me look any bigger anywhere.  I just wanted something that I thought was a little more formal.

    @steene222:  Colour or bling depends on your preference.  I’m all for the sparkle, so I think a blingy belt would be nice.  Or, perhaps some beaded detail just under the bust.

    It needs to be altered a lot (pulled tighter in the stomach and bust, and shortened) but here’s mine!

    You ladies look beautiful… I wore a ruffled Bonny Unforgettable dress no pettiskirt and although it was a bit heavy, I felt great and comfortable in it all night.

    @saffy:  This dress is beautiful. I so so wanted to be able to get it, but my store didn’t carry a size I could try on, and I just couldn’t risk buying it without trying it on first. Talk about regrets!

    @phishy179:  Aww, thank you!  I bought it without being able to try it on, so I’m just so thankful it worked out!
