Meet Brittany Johnson, our plus size bridal expert!
It’s Bridal SALE season and having a say yes to the dress moment matters to all. Fabulous plus size girls need to look great for this very special day. And as a wedding expert I know how important it is to have all of the elements align perfectly for that day. With any bridal gown it’s about fit and how amazing you will look for the wedding.
So with any woman (full figured girl or straight sized) it’s about creating that perfect illusion. You have to create a look that accentuates the positives. You can create a longer torso if you add some pleating or ruching along the waist/bodice area. It’s an amazing trick to the eye when it’s worn and gives you more of a fitted waist.
Personally these ruched gowns are helpful for any bride, but for a plus size one it does wonders. Heavy bottoms add more volume to the full figured size so go for a trumpet or mermaid bottom. Adding extreme amounts of ruffles or layers makes the dress look heavy for a plus size bride. But if you love the extra ruffles or the pick-up bottoms then make sure there’s pleating near the waist area.

Also as a curvy bride you must be aware of certain shapes, because certain gowns fit well for certain shapely women. For instance there are two great silhouettes that are perfect on curvy brides – the A-line and the empire waist gowns. These gowns accentuate the body by elongating and slimming the hip area. Have fun with the ball gown silhouette as well because this gown slims the hips and accents the waist.

But with any gown comes the neckline and I’ve noticed that strapless and adding straps work well. Then there’s the famous sweetheart neckline it helps with certain bustier brides. Also the halter neckline helps by adding leverage and definition for the bustier girls.
