Without a doubt, the best experience I could’ve wished for. I’d go back in a heartbeat and re experience it all again with the help of Kelly! She made me feel worthy of having a magical dress and that I could be beautiful even with the curves ❤️
Wow what can I say. Kelly was fantastic. As a curvy girl I was apprehensive about going shopping for my wedding dress. I really didn't have to worry. I felt at ease and was treated like every woman should be made to feel for such a special occasion. The whole experience was amazing and I can't thank you enough.
I rang up brides with curves after leaving another shop unhappy and feeling rather large. The service I received was outstanding. Kelly came back to the shop after closing to help me find my dream dress, and that is exactly what happened. I would recommend this shop until the cows come home, you made the whole experience how it should be, fun and fabulous. The little details you pay make it personal and special.
I would highly recommend Brides with Curves. Just being able to go to a bridal shop and even try on the dresses was huge, as most shops only stock smaller sizes. Kelly was amazing through my experience of first trying a dress to eventually collecting for my big day. Couldn’t thank her enough xxx
Kelly really makes you feel so comfortable and helps you find exactly what you're looking for.
Kelly is absolutely amazing, she put absolutely no pressure on me yesterday as this was my first time trying on dresses and I was very nervous! She was fantastic and I am so happy to have been able to choose the very first dress I tried on with my Mum, Gran and Kelly’s guidance! Thank you for making it so special!
Just had the most wonderful morning wedding dress shopping for my daughter. So excited for her. She will look beautiful in the dress she has chosen. Kelly was so helpful and knowledgeable and made the experience fun. Thank you.

I just have no words. I left dress shopping till the last minute as I'm not the most confident of people when it comes to my body. But Kelly was just simply amazing, made me feel so comfortable... one thing I recommend to all brides to be, if they choose Brides with Curves, have trust and faith in Kelly when it comes to what suits you.

Just had a fabulous experience at Brides with Curves. Kelly made me feel so special. Nothing was too much trouble. At last a place where I could try dresses on that fit a lady with curves. Thanks Kelly I felt like a princess x
Couldn't rate this place any higher! I was extremely nervous about looking for a dress and Kelly made myself and my family feel welcome as soon as we stepped through the door. My wedding is in only 5 months so it was important that I found the right dress, and after trying on a few I found the perfect one so thank you for making me feel special xx
Yesterday I said YES to the dress (and my shoes). Thank you Kelly! You were fantastic and I can highly recommend your warm friendly service.
As soon as I stepped in through the door and got greeted by the lovely Kelly, all my anxieties drifted away. Her kindness, sensitivity and empathy was out of this world. Not only did she help me being a last minute bride to get a dress last minute, she made the process so easy and wouldn't give up until my dress was perfect. Thank you Kelly xxx
I was SO nervous about shopping for my dress. I found Brides with Curves when googling dress shops in the local area and was really excited because I had no idea that anything like this existed! It was so nice to be able to look through all the dresses without the pressure of any other customers being there. The result ...my dream dress! Thank you for making this a really fun experience rather than a scary one xx
Kelly instantly put me at ease. It was the most wonderful experience ending in a pool of happy tears and a Wedding Dress that took my breath away. Brides with Curves know exactly how to create an unforgettable experience. With honest yet fantastic advice. Trust this woman ... she knows all about how to dress our curves. AMAZING!!
Being plus size it is hard to try or clothes without feeling like anything fits you properly, this was not the case in Brides with Curves, I was able to try every dress on. Thank you so much Kellie and the team for helping me find ‘the dress’. You made the experience magical and unforgettable. Your small touches really made the experience. I would highly recommend Brides with Curves to anyone!
After a long and harrowing search I stumbled across this absolute gem. For the first time I enjoyed my wedding dress shopping experience. Kelly was everything I could have asked for in a consultant and more and her range is the most extensive I have come across for a curvy bride. I couldn't be happier.
Went into Brides with Curves today with my mum and felt at ease soon as I got in there. Tried 5 dresses on at 5 months pregnant and said yes to my dress. I'm in love. Thank you for making my experience perfect.
Kelly was amazing!!! Just said yes to the dress today. She takes her time and comes up with ideas I never would of thought of. I can't wait to get married now, whereas before I was nervous about how I'd look in a dress.
I stopped going shopping until I saw Brides with Curves advertised, when arriving Kelly was amazing, very friendly and bubbly! She was so honest and knew exactly what would look good on me, she was patient while I tried on half the shop because hey, they all fitted!! I finally found my dream dress!! Thank you so much Kelly xxx
Kelly is a lovely lady who knows exactly how every bride to be will feel and be feeling from trying on dresses and right up to the big day. Thank you Kelly for putting my daughter at ease and letting her know that everything she has been feeling every bride to be feels xx
Went to Kelly today to find a pair of shoes for my wedding in 10 weeks. Amazing, friendly service, a fantastic selection to choose from. Kelly was very helpful and I would highly recommend for all your bridal needs xx
As a very nervous, curvy bride I have not enjoyed dress shopping much. That was until I first visited Brides with Curves and met Kelly. The appointment was relaxed and fun. Kelly is amazing and really makes you feel at ease. I said Yes to the dress. Thank you Kelly.
Today I said YES to my dress, all because of the lovely Kelly at Brides With Curves. She was so helpful and completely understood what I did and didn’t want. I was feeling very unsure and indecisive and Kelly was really patient with me, suggesting lots of alternative looks I could go for. Thank you Kelly xx
I put off finding my wedding dress as I didn't want to be disappointed and embarrassed with high street shops not having anything that would fit. Kelly made me feel so comfortable and at ease and helped me find my perfect dress...the complete opposite of what I thought I wanted!! Would definitely recommend Brides With Curves!
Excellent one to one service, a great choice of wedding dresses to choose from, made to feel like a princess even though I’m in my fifties. Thank you.
So today I visited Brides With Curves and said yes to the dress. This was our first point of call and I am so glad we came. Kelly is amazing! She made us feel welcome and relaxed. This lady knows her stuff! Thank you for such a brilliant experience.
Brides with Curves carry a brilliant variety of dresses, I tried on loads! I had hoped before I went that I’d find something that would fit and I’d feel okay in. What I ended up with was feeling beautiful for the first time in my life. I got a dress better than anything I could have imagined, and would recommend without reservation to anyone.
