Every bride knows that when it comes to plus size
wedding dresses, David’s Bridal dominates. But maybe you don’t want to look like every other bride. So what about other, less well-known options for plus size wedding dresses? Here’s six choices off-the-beaten-path that you may not have known about:
Igigi’s Exquisite Evening Gown, White with Silver Sequins. Look like a Greek Goddess in this sequined gown with matching shawl. The ethereal design of this plus size wedding dress puts it at the top of our list. Thoughtful details like bra friendly straps, and a bust-line that curves properly around fuller figures ensure that this gown will not only be a show-stopper, but comfortable to boot. The wispy, full-length skirt is pure white, and this wedding dress is offered in the full range of plus sizes from 12/14W to 30/32W. At just under $200, it’ll give you a few more dollars to put towards the flowers and cake.
Kiyonna’s Vintage-Inspired Scallop Lace Wedding Gown. Kiyonna is a small designer of sophisticated plus size clothing for women who wear size 12 and up. This unusual plus size wedding dress, made with two-tone ivory lace, has an elegant v-neck and a flattering surplice bodice. Best of all, there’s a hint of stretch in this fabric, which every bride will need after sitting and standing about a thousand times to greet guests. Fully lined, but for the slightly belled sleeves, this plus size wedding dress has old world charm.
Lane Bryant’s Long Satin Bridal Gown. While Kiyonna also makes an attempt at a simple satin plus side wedding dress, Lane Bryant’s version is the superior design. For less than $150, their long satin bridal gown is sexy and pure at the same time. On another dress, the rich sheen might resemble lingerie, but the gorgeous details at the empire waist ensure that this is a plus size wedding dress of the highest caliber. Available in Oyster, and up to size 28W, this plus size wedding gown has cup inserts to help provide support and shape.
Alfred Angelo’s Style 1929W. If you’re looking for something more formal and you can’t find it at David’s, try ordering directly from Alfred Angelo’s online site. I had the pleasure of seeing this dress on a close friend of mine who wears a 26W, and it was just stunning. The bodice was slimming, the bare shoulders drew all the attention to her face, and the cap sleeves helped alleviate her concerns about baring her arms. With crystal beading, and built in crinoline, it will transform a plus size bride into the princess of her wedding fantasies.
Calito’s Honey-suckle A-line. This plus size wedding dress is simple, beautiful, and screams ingÃ?Â©nue. The skirt floats away from the body, and the bodice narrows at the waist to give you an hour-glass figure. It’s available in sizes up to 34W, and comes in crepe satin and a range of colors if white isn’t your style.
Plus Size Bridal’s Style 5024. English mesh netting and matte satin are woven together with seed pearls and glass beads to complete this modest plus size wedding dress. Offered in white and ivory, Style 5024 is an unusual wedding gown in that its glamour is overcome by neatness. This is a clean gown that allows the bride’s beauty to shine. It’s offered in the full range of plus and extended sizes at a reasonable price.
