Find Designers Of Wedding Dresses For Plus Size Brides

Stella York Wedding dress for Plus size bride #7509

Gone are the days when it was hard to find wedding dresses for plus size women. The majority of bridal designers make their whole bridal collection in an array of style in plus sizes.

Now most wedding gown designers make sizes that go up to at least size 24. There are some that have sizes that go up to size 30. Also some designers offer to make your dress in custom sizing made to your measurements.

But guess what? There are designers that design specifically with the plus size shape in mind. Their dresses are designed to fit better and flatter the plus size figure.

Now there is a difference in the measurements, proportions and sizing for wedding dresses made for a plus size woman. For example:

  • A size 20 usually is proportioned differently from a size 20W.
  • The size 20 is based off of the standard sizes from size 2 through 18.
  • The designer grades up the sizes which starts out based on a misses body shape. The misses body measurements are more proportionate (having a very defined waistline) and is based on a B bra cup size.
  • But a size 20W is designed to be proportionate to measurements of the plus size figure.
  • The waist in proportion to the bust and hips will tend to be bigger than a size 20.
  • The bust cup size is usually between a C or D cup size, which is more like what a plus size woman would wear.

So when you see sizing with a "w" behind the size... it will be better proportioned to you.

Some Designers Make Their Regular Styles In Plus Sizes

Also their are some designers who design part of their line just for those who fall into plus sizes. The styles are flattering to full figured body types and can only be ordered in plus sizes. Some designers have both their regular line of dresses that go from size 2 to 30 and also gowns that are designed exclusively for full figured women sized from 18W to 30W.

The one thing that gives you a clue that a designer designs wedding dresses for plus size women is you will see plus size models in their dresses. It really helps to see a gown on a model who reflects more of your shape and proportions to get an idea of how it might look on you.

As an alterations specialist... I can say that a gown designed for a plus size woman's shape has less fitting problems, which means you will spend less on the alterations.
