Plus size wedding dresses - it's easy to be beautiful

If in the era of late antiquity large dresses were cut in the same way as any outfits for other body shapes, during Middle Ages the fashion changed dramatically. Women's wedding dress has become a real ceremonial attire, to which many requirements were put forward: high waist, thinned with a corset, fluffy skirts expanding downwards, high collar, long sleeves, V-neck.
It was medieval lush beauties who realized that properly chosen elements of a wedding dress can visually beatify proportions, bringing them to the ideal in a tribute to fashion. Women use similar cunning tricks today. The abundance of luxurious styles and embellishments on plus size dresses for full-figured ladies help to create a fantastic wedding look that any bride dreams of.
Curvaceous forms are not a reason for complexes and restrictions in choosing a beautiful dress. Talented designers can favorably present any figure. Not all ladies are thin, some of them have lush sexy bust and exciting curves of the hips. A few extra pounds will not prevent the bride from looking irresistible in a wedding dress tailored to her figure. The Pollardi fashion house creates plus size wedding dresses for ladies with lush shapes, tailoring each model to individual measurements.
The main goal of Pollardi designers is to help the bride to get rid of even the slightest complexes so that she could look confident and irresistible on her wedding day. Today we will talk about the features of wedding dresses for plus size girls. How to choose a wedding dress properly? How to take into account the unique features of the figure and emphasize them? How to visually hide imperfections? Right now, we are going to tell you all the secrets of a plus size wedding dress.

Features of a plus size wedding dress

The main task of a wedding dress is to profitably present the beauty of a woman's figure, so that on such an important day the bride feels herself the most beautiful. This principle should be followed when choosing casual clothes, but unlike things that are worn every day, a wedding dress should 100% cope with this task, since it won’t be possible to make an unforgettable impression on the groom and guests for the second time.
It should be understood that there is no universal ideal style that would look equally good on girls with a lush bust, wide hips or other features of the figure. Each silhouette suits a different cut and in any style there are both winning dress models and absolutely unsuccessful ones.
When looking for the perfect plus size wedding dress, Pollardi recommends five simple guidelines:
1. Adequately approach the choice of size
This advice may seem rather commonplace, but the wrong size is one of the most common problems among brides who are chasing the idea of looking much slimmer than they are. Choosing the wrong size of the dress can only worsen the situation. A tight dress will treacherously dig into the body, which will form ugly folds hanging down in the back and in front. A dress that fits perfectly to the figure, on the contrary, will create a harmonious look and better emphasize the charms of curvaceous forms.
2. Do not neglect a corset and a fluffy skirt
A quality corset may work incredible miracles. It can perfectly slim the waist and make proportions more graceful. In turn, the skirt expanding from the waistline will hide wide hips. Girls with a lush bust and broad shoulders can balance the upper part with a fluffy skirt.
3. Choose the neckline properly
The neckline of the dress is extremely important when focusing on the bust. The V-neck can visually lengthen the neck and even narrow the waist, while the heart-shaped neckline draws attention to the lush bust. It is better not to choose a boat neckline for ladies with wide shoulders, as it can make them even wider.
4. Pay attention to the Empire style
An Empire style wedding dress with a slightly raised waistline and a skirt falling in soft waves, incredibly stretches the figure and helps to hide the tummy.
5. Find the proper type of fabric
The fabric from which a plus size wedding dress will be sewn is extremely important for a harmonious result. Lightweight fabric such as organza or chiffon can lighten the look. Properly chosen lace pattern can also be an assistant in body shaping. Multi-layered tulle adds lushness if a princess style dress is chosen.

Let’s determine the body shape for choosing the proper style of a plus size wedding dress

Laying out all the cards on the table, we can confidently state that there are no such concepts as thinness or plumpness in professional fashion terminology. Without any doubt, size plays a big role, however, when looking for a wedding dress for a plus size figure, it is much more important to start from the body shape.
We will talk in general about the differences between each type of female figure. If you obviously have one of the options described, follow the advice of the best Pollardi specialists who will help you to choose a plus size wedding dress that perfectly fits your body. If you cannot exactly determine which body shape you have, we recommend you to contact a wedding store or an experienced stylist for help.

Plus size wedding dress for the Apple body shape

This body constitution is characterized by roundness in the upper part of the body, namely in the area from the neck to the hips. That is why it was called the apple. Ladies with such shapes cannot always boast of a pronounced waist, but they often have beautiful slender and long legs. Based on this feature, we can say that the princess silhouette is absolutely not suitable for such brides. This style, due to lushness and high waistline can visually reduce growth, making the figure even more plump and disproportionate.
If the bride is not afraid of experiments, she should pay attention to a short wedding dress, which focuses on the beauty of the legs. A-line models and Greek style dresses which due to the fabric falling from the bust will also look good, since they hide the imperfections of the waist.

Plus size wedding dress for the Pear body shape

Beauties with rounded hips should understand, this is your incredibly attractive highlight that emphasizes femininity and health. It is the prominent line of the hips that is characteristic of the pear body shape. Such brides have rather narrow shoulders and waist, as well as not very prominent bust. The owners of such appetizing forms are lucky, because they can try on almost all styles, if taking into account all the details of the silhouette.
You should only try to avoid dresses with a straight cut, because such models of wedding dresses are suitable for girls with more ideal body proportions. For a pear girl who can boast of a thin waist, a princess style dress is ideal. A semi-tight mermaid silhouette will look no less impressive, which focuses on the seductive buttocks. You can also find a beautiful A-line model that balances the body proportions.

Plus size wedding dress for the Hourglass body shape

If for some reason you believe that your figure lacks any charms, and see in yourself only a large bust and excess kilo in the hips, it's time to learn something interesting about your body. This body shape, like an hourglass, even for plus size girls is an incredible gift. It is difficult to imagine more feminine and elegant forms, graceful curves and exciting volumes.
Hourglass is a versatile body shape that is easiest to emphasize with any silhouette of a wedding dress for plus size girls. Feel free to try on more different models to decide which style suits you best. Believe that in Pollardi collections you will find outfits of amazing beauty for this body shape, which is characterized by the most harmonious forms: a pronounced waist and proportional shoulders and hips.

Plus size wedding dress for the Rectangle body shape

A straight figure, without pronounced hips, waist or shoulders, is typical of the rectangle body type. Even not too obvious plumpness usually becomes an obstacle for girls with such a body shape, who are in search of a wedding dress. It is important to take into account the individual characteristics of different parts of the body, so rectangles should definitely try on different styles.
 In this case you should refuse tight-fitting models and pay attention to the A-line or Greek style dresses. Mind that a well-chosen dress will help to visually correct imperfections, while an unsuccessful choice can, on the contrary, draw attention even more to what you want to hide.

Plus size wedding dress for the Triangle body shape

Not only skinny women have body proportions called triangle. Often, wide protruding shoulders become a snag for curvaceous brides. At the same time, their waist, hips and legs look very graceful and proportional. Models with open shoulders and a deep neckline emphasize the massive top, so it is better to refuse such options. It is also worth to carefully approach fish styles, straight cut and dresses with a sleeveless bodice or without straps.
Dresses with a fluffy airy skirt, short wedding dresses, A-line will look more harmonious. Excessive shoulders can be corrected by a well-chosen sleeve, which can be either voluminous, short or long, as well as a neckline cut.

How to choose a wedding dress for a plus size girl? Pollardi stylists advise

All girls are different, as are the wedding dresses themselves. Two brides can have rounded expressive hips, but at the same time, dresses of completely different style and design will suit them. When choosing a wedding dress for a plus size figure, you should look for not just an outfit that will hide imperfections, but one that can highlight the girl's unique merits.

Before you start looking for that very dress, the Pollardi brand experts want to give you some helpful tips:

  • Love your body - we live at a time when body positivity has blossomed. This movement calls for loving your body and not chasing an unrealistic ideal. You should find outstanding advantages in your figure and try to emphasize them with a beautiful dress. Accept your body as it is here and now, analyze its features and choose an outfit that will suit you perfectly;
  • Forget about preferences – plus size girls, when choosing a dream dress, start from the looks that appeal to them. However, you should look realistic at the situation and understand that not every style will suit your body. Of course, you should like the silhouette and color of the dress, but you shouldn't be obsessed with just one model. See how you look in different styles, which will help you better understand which one sits more ideal;
  • Try on as much as possible - it is more difficult for plus size brides to find that very unique dress that will suit them. Therefore, do not even think to limit yourself to trying on 2-3 dresses and go straight to the choice. Save time and don't think about what the consultants think. The client is always right, so try on until you feel the true thrill of that very dress. Remember how Harry Potter was chosen by his magic wand? Your dress should also choose you, it remains just to find it;
  • Trust experts - friends are not always good counselors. Let's be frank with each other: if you know about your imperfections, but at the same time do not understand how to present them correctly, do not neglect the advice of professionals. Consulting a stylist is more important than ever when choosing a wedding dress.

What accessories will match a plus size wedding dress?

Accessories play an important role in creating an integral and harmonious wedding look. You should choose them very carefully so as not to overload your look. For example, a wedding dress with long sleeves, a closed bodice and a luxurious train does not need big jewelry. In this case, you can make accent choosing elegant earrings. And if the outfit, on the contrary, has an open neckline, you can pick up an elegant necklace or a big pendant.
When choosing shoes, you should make sure that they are in harmony with the overall conception of the dress. If you want to visually lengthen your legs, pay attention to shoes or sandals in beige shades. In the Pollardi catalog you can find many interesting solutions to complement your wedding look from unusual modern veils to luxurious capes and boleros.
