I name changed for this as I havent told anyone im getting married yet. This is my second time round and I'm a size 22 on top and 18 on bottom my waist is high my chest is large bit I have a belly. So Apple shape. I'm terrified to go dress shopping. Can.you help me with suggestions. I'm 45 if that helps. Thanks x
There’s a series on YouTube called Curvy Brides Boutique on TLC UK which has women of all ages and shapes. That might be useful to get some tips? Don’t be terrified! Many, many brides are your size and larger, and get suited with beautiful dresses. Personally, I would keep things simple and classic second time in my 40s.
Sounds like something a bit boho might fit the bill then if you like maxis? There’s a company called ModCloth which has some lovely, very affordable wedding dresses that are a bit different. Or even good old Monsoon? What’s your budget?
Congratulations. Look forward to seeing you in the Wedding section ( under Fun and Games) There are thousands of dresses at all price points for larger ladies. Don't rush into anything. I've just googled wedding dresses for larger ladies and looked on hitched and StillWhite. For my money the fishtail and mermaid styles look the most flattering. I get they are probably the antithesis of your style but choice fabric makes a difference. I love that billowy one KissAss posted but the model is thin. The flowy material highlights her thinness.The effect on a plus size would be the opposite and would emphasise the fact you aren't a delicate floaty model.Obviously you need to wear something that is you but there really is masses out there especially online.
