How to Choose Beautiful Wedding Dresses for the Fuller Figure

It can be very daunting for a fuller-figured woman to choose the right dress for her wedding. There are so many beautiful wedding dresses out there for slimmer ladies, but when it comes to plus-sizes, there is not always a great variety out there. Full-figured women can feel intimated by the process of choosing a bridal gown, and often don’t feel great about the idea of wearing a plus-sized wedding dress, but we have news for you!

A plus-sized dress can be tailored to fit your body beautifully, and to bring out all your lovely assets. It is important to find a dress that fits comfortably and to optimise your true beauty on your most important day. Often, these dresses are made in various designs to complement an array of body shapes, and this can help you to flaunt your best features. These dresses are created by very talented designers and they are designed to be altered to be completely in tune with the shape of your body – even for the fuller-figured lady.

Here are Some Tips for the Fuller Figure:

• Ruching is extremely forgiving: Wherever you feel plus-sized, ruching can probably bring some relief. Ruching is undeniably forgiving for just about any shape. You can use it anywhere, in the sleeves, in the middle or in the bust, but it is most effectively used when the dress is gathered on one side.

• One-flow gowns: A lot of beautiful wedding dresses have a piecemeal look to them. This means that the bodice may look like it belongs to one style and the skirt looks like it comes from another era. While this may work for petite brides, keeping with one theme is important for fuller figures. Rather keep it smooth and similar with a flow in the fabric, and you will float down the aisle like a fairy.

• Drop the waist: Depending on where your weight is, a dropped waist can hide a multitude of areas that you might feel self-conscious about. Empire bust lines and dropped waists à la Great Gatsby can look wonderful on a fuller figure, and provide all the romance needed for the occasion.
