The best wedding dress styles for curvy, voluptuous brides

We’ve always embraced our natural curves and know that it is not the size that matters. The most important thing when it comes to fashion is not to opt for the latest trends but to choose a cut that flatters you and your shape. This is particularly important on your wedding day.

Look for a dress with a wide neckline which displays your décolletage without showing too much of the girls (no-one except your husband needs to know what they look like). Choose a dress that highlights your best assets: Got a perfect hourglass figure? Find a gown that accentuates your tiny waist. Often a fitted corset top and a full skirt will do wonders.

An empire line wedding dress on the other hand can make you look top heavy and potentially start pregnancy rumours… The more structure the better, as it keeps those curves under control. And don’t forget the all-important bridal lingerie, as this creates the foundation of your bride masterpiece.

And if your girls need a bit more support, there are no wedding rule book that says the bride has to wear a strapless gown. Consider a 50s inspired dress, complete with halter neck for that essential support!
