I’ve always feared that when I got married, I’d have the hardest time finding a fashionable sexy wedding dress for a woman my size. But that’s just not the case anymore. Times are definitely changing. During my search for the perfect wedding dress (EEKkkkk my wedding is only 34 days away), I happened across a lot of amazing designers that continue to keep the Plus Size Fashionista in mind.
Sidebar: I did choose a dress, for myself, from one of the designers mentioned. However, my particular dress will not be posted in this post.
Please Note: These designers are not in any particular sequence. These are just the few I choose to highlight.
JULIETTA by Mori Lee
Can we just stop to appreciate this amazing designer?? All her gown seems to just have that wow factor. But the thing is, they are all so simply elegant. They can all be customized with various accents to better suit your style. I also like that she keeps her dress costs reasonably priced. Her gowns start at $700.
Here are some of my faves!

David’s Bridal Plus Size
David’s Bridal has really stepped their game up! They’ve recently introduced some game changing pieces to their Plus Size Collections. They great thing about David’s Bridal is they are located almost everywhere. Easy Access is always a plus!!
Here are a few of my faves
These are far from your normal wedding looks. Jibri Online specializes in highly fashionable plus size pieces for the uber stylish. With her new bridal collection, she definitely didn’t disappoint. Along with more traditional silouhettes, she added non-traditional fabrics and less traditional looks (like the one-piece jumper featured below). She even features a black number that is stunningly beautiful. For the unconventional bride. I just wish she would have released them sooner. I definitely would have purchased a piece for my upcoming wedding (both of my wedding looks had been purchased months before she released this collection).
Here are my favorites from the collection.
What’s not to love about these super romantic beautifully crafted gowns?? I’m in awe of the stunning silouhettes paired with beautiful fabrics. Complete stunners. The ONLY thing I’m not so fond of with the brand is the choice of models. We can’t quite adequately assess how they’d fit a plus size frame. However, each dress is exquisitely designed and crafted. I came across the brand while in a bridal shop. So I can attest to the craftsmanship and quality.
Here are some of my favorites.
All of the designers featured size from a size 0-28 (with some extending their sizes beyond 28).
Wedding Dress Shopping Tips
Always keep in mind (if ordering off line), to size UP. Wedding dresses run small.
I would always advise researching your designer of choice to see what boutique has them. That way, you can try them on before you by. This step is CRITICAL unless you are 100% sure of your sizing and style.
Give yourself an adequate amount of time for shipping and alterations. I ordered my dress atleast 7 months in advance. You can never be too safe
There are so many more designers that I’ve come across that deserve to be mentioned. But we definitely don’t have the space in this post! lol…
