I noticed that everyone tells plus size brides to head straight for the a-lines but honestly, what helped me the most was trying on all different cuts and styles at my first appointment. It let me get an idea of how dIfferent dresses fit my body.

I got the Casablanca 1827, it was one of the most popular plus size dresses the shop I went to sold. They have a bunch of suggestions on their website, if you have a chance, it’s called Trudy’s Brides in San Jose, CA. That might help you figure out what generally looks good.

i think it really depends on your body type. For me i have huge muffin tops, like costco size muffin tops. So i knew i needed to find a dress that had a higher waist so i could hide them. i dont mind my arms or back so i didnt mind if they show. So find you areas that you like (waist or arms or back-whatever it is) and try to show those off!

It’s not a debacle! Monique is full-figured and she always looks good, no matter what the dress. I think the key is getting those body shaper undergarments to make sure your body shapes into the dress. I’m not plus sized, but I plan to wear it under mine.
