The average person is around 14 or 16 these days, not 8 or 10 and unfortunately, some bridal and formal wear stores only carry their sample dresses in Size 8 and 10’s. Forever Bridal & Formal, at Stafford on the inner north side of Brisbane, stocks dresses for brides to be, bridesmaids, formals and school graduations in all sizes from Size 6 to 26.
If you’re a curvy, plus-size bride, shopping for your wedding dress should be no different than any other woman shopping for her wedding dress. You still want to be drop-dead gorgeous and feel like a million dollars. With the brides looking for more options, finding the perfect dress is not just about choosing what’s slimming, rather it’s about finding a dress that suits your personality and gives you confidence. You still want your dress to flatter your figure, be a style that enhances your body shape and be as comfortable as possible.
Your size does not define who you are, and it is of no relevance to those that love you. It certainly should not mean having to change who you are to wear your special dress for one day out of your life. Confidence is the key, know who you are, and you do not need to change for anyone.
At Forever Bridal & Formal we specialise in buying dress styles in appropriate sizes for different body types and shapes. Our staff at can help select the best styles that suit your body shape, especially if you are not sure where to start. You never know what’s going to look good on you unless you try it for yourself. Don’t pass up on dresses simply by seeing it on the hanger, try everything until you find the one that you feel the most beautiful in!
TIP: Ignore the sizing of the dress, just make sure it is right for you!
When you are a plus-size bride or you just have a ‘problem’ area, shopping for a dress can be painful, but it needn’t be. Forever Bridal & Formal have a large range of plus sized gowns for Weddings and Evening wear, whether you are the bride, bridesmaid or a guest we can make sure you will look stunning on your special day!
