Plus-size Brides: 5 Tips To Looking And Feeling Your Best On Your Big Day |

Plus-sized. It’s a phrase that’s used a lot to define women who wear clothing in the double-digits. Although personally, we have to admit that we prefer words like voluptuous, curvaceous and… stacked. So, if you’re a woman who fits nicely into this demographic, then automatically, you can get excited about just how stunning you’re going to look on your wedding day. Simply by being you.

But if you would like a few tips on things that you can do that will help you to look and feel your absolute best in your dress, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got five proven tips to help you feel and look your best on your big day.

Choose a dress that best complements you
It’s one thing to look at a wedding dress in a magazine and like it, but in order to know if it will look beautiful on you, you should definitely try it on first. And while you’re shopping for one, we feel that it’s a good idea to keep in mind what best complements a plus-sized bride. An A-line skirt offers a flattering silhouette, an empire-gown provides a waistline that falls right below the bust and if you want to be a sexy bride, don’t hesitate to try on a couple of sheath dresses—they are designed in such a way that they are fitted from top to bottom and will show off all of the right things while camouflaging areas that you don’t want to be seen. As far as the kinds of fabrics that work best, blended silk, charmeuse and organza are all truly elegant.

“Build” on the right foundation
Honestly, no matter what size a bride is, she should make sure that she has the right foundation; however, this is especially important if you are a plus-size bride. So, from your bra to your girdle/Spanx to anything else that you’re planning to wear under your gown, make sure that it gives you plenty of support, makes you feel comfortable and looks virtually seamless under your dress.

Don’t be shy with your bust line
If you happen to be a woman who has a full bust, don’t be shy about showing it off. Sweetheart necklines can be absolute show-stoppers, especially if you complement it with a fabulous gemstone necklace.

Get your dress altered
Sometimes a bride can look larger in a dress than she actually is simply because she failed to alter her gown. For most women, losing at least a few pounds before her wedding day is a priority and even five pounds can make a dress fit in a different kind of way. That’s why it’s important to have a formal fitting of your dress as little as 7-10 days before your wedding day to see if any last minute-alterations are needed.

Don’t forget about your hair
This last tip actually has nothing, and also everything, to do with your dress. Being that you want to look stunning from head-to-toe, have fun with your hair. Many stylists recommend that plus-sized brides get their hair cut in layers while adding some highlights to it. By finishing the look off with some flowing waves, you can look picture perfect and also unforgettable to your groom.

As you’re getting ready for your wedding day, remember that being an incredible-looking bride has nothing to do with size. It’s all about finding what works best for you and then…working it!

As for the tuxedo style gown we got in a 14, it was beautiful, we loved it, ……she wore it for “Luck be A Lady”, with a black fedora, and it looked fabulous….the work is beautiful

The sketch is what I had understood the fabrics would be. The construction of the dress is exactly how I had pictured it–and it is beautiful.

 

Thanks for the help,

The dress worked out perfectly. It was a size to big, but my tailor did a great job sizing it for me.

Dear Hunter,

I just received my dress in the mail yesterday — I LOVE IT!  It’s just everything I thought I would want and more.  The cut is so ridiculously close; I only have a few minor alterations to have done.  Thank you so much for your help with this.  I am certainly happy I went with your company!

I do plan to get the word out about this among my group of opera friends.  I hope you get responses!

Thank you and all of the team at Darius Cordell Couture for bringing such a fabulous dress to life,

J.Barton – Bloomington , NJ


David:
Although I got concerned about receiving my dress for the wear date I did get it the day before (almost too close for comfort). However, I must say the dress is absoulutely gorgeous.  My mother was a professional designer and seamstress for years so believe me when I say the dress and workmanship was without flaw. My daughter designed the dress for me and she was thrilled when we opened the package and her original sketch was taped to the outside.  You made her vision a lovely reality. I tried on the dress and all my husband could say was “WOW”  and after 28 years of marriage that is a great compliment.  But the best compliment came from my daughter.  She said “Mom, when I get married that is the dress I want you to wear.” It just can’t get any better than that.Thanks so very much,D.

It is magnificent!! And a perfect fit! I’m totally in love with it! Even my Brazilian fancy shoes are a perfect match for my beautiful dress!  I just had to send you the pictures that my husband took of me, yesterday.
