Welcome to our brand new blog!
I’ll be posting regular musings on the plus-size wedding dress industry; from the fabulous frocks and accessories we’ve discovered to what it’s like to be a curvy bride-to-be.
For all you fuller-figured ladies, you’ll know exactly what we mean when we say shopping for any sort of frock is a nightmare; it seems style goes out the window if you’re anything above a size 18. Far from the rails and rails of choice available to the smaller figure, us curvy girls have to settle for…well…glorified curtains on a clothes hanger.
So when your man pops the question and you’ve got to find yourself a wedding dress that actually makes you feel and look fabulous, anxiety levels can skyrocket. What choice will there be? Will I feel out of place? Will I find the dress of my dreams?
The answers to these questions respectively are: very little, most likely, and probably not! That is, of course, until now…
This is exactly why Brides With Curves bounded onto the wedding dress scene in September 2016 – to offer all you beautiful curvy ladies the choice you deserve, and more.
We’ve created this blog to start a long-awaited and much-needed conversation surrounding the historic imbalance in the wedding dress industry, and we hope that by exploring the needs and desires of the plus-size bride-to-be, we can make big and beautiful gowns not only more accessible, but also more accepted.
So, keep your eyes out for our first official post, which will be coming soon. And if you have any questions, ideas or comments at all, give us a shout!
