It’s possible to look great on your big day, regardless of your size. However, it’s important to find the perfect plus size wedding dress; not all manufacturers make larger sizes, and not all larger dresses will suit you. Firstly, and perhaps most importantly, make sure the dress actually fits you. A simple shape often works most effectively with a streamlined silhouette, while broad hips can often be hidden by wearing a full ball gown style dress. Avoid a dress that has a horizontal feature at its widest part, as that can accentuate your size, and try to avoid a dress with too much lace or too many ruffles; less ornamentation is often a better option. Even the color is important when shopping for a larger wedding dress; always go for a color that actually suits you, and remember that darker colors generally make you appear slimmer.
