What to Expect When Buying a Plus Size Wedding Dress
Wedding dress shopping can cause a little bit of anxiety in any brides life, especially if they are plus size. In recent years, it has become a little easier to find decent plus-size clothing, but finding something that you feel great and stylish in can still be difficult, even when you are just looking for normal clothes. Therefore, it is no surprise that shopping for a plus size wedding dress for the most special day of your life can crank the anxiety levels up even more.
For many plus size brides, going wedding dress shopping can bring up a whole host of body issues and insecurities, but the team at Florentyna Dawn are here to help you and make it the happy and positive experience it should be. To this end, we have a dedicated wedding dress collection to cater for brides of all shapes and sizes from 6 to 50. We know when you are a plus size it can be hard to look at pictures of ladies who are a size 6 and imagine how the dress will look on your shape, and so we use gorgeous plus size models in our photo shoots to give you some idea of how beautiful and flattering our dresses are.
To prepare for your appointment with us to try on the plus size wedding dresses, you should:
• Wear underwear that makes you feel good – doesn’t have to be shapewear. Shapewear has a purpose but it isn’t always the most comfortable thing to wear, and you want to be comfortable on your wedding day. We can help you to find a dress that looks amazing on you without the need for shapewear, but you can always add it later if you want
• Wear a strapless bra if you have one – some gowns are structured enough that you won’t need one, but it is always better to be safe than sorry
• If you have your wedding shoes, already bring them with you. If you don’t, then bring some shoes with a similar heel height to what you think you might wear on the day. We do provide shoes for you to try in store if you do forget to bring your own.
• Bring some water, you will be amazed at how dehydrated you get when dress shopping!

So, when dress shopping what sort of shapes should you be looking for? Slim A-line shapes are great for plus size brides as the ruching and sweetheart neckline will be very flattering. Corset backs are also something to look out for as they can cinch you in and really make the most of your curves. If you have broad shoulders, look for a fuller skirt as this can balance them out.
You will probably end up trying on a few dresses to find the one, so the best thing to do is just to be open minded. One style of plus size wedding dress does not fit all, so try on as many different shapes as you can before making your decision. Keep smiling and have a positive attitude and we will help you find the plus size wedding dress of your dreams.
