Tips for choosing a plus-sized wedding dress include selecting a dress with ruching or trimming and an asymmetrical design, because these elements flatter the bride's body. An A-line wedding dress also flatters a plus-sized woman, because it creates an attractive silhouette while providing coverage.
A dress with an asymmetrical pattern draws attention to the bride's face and eyes. The asymmetrical pattern also shows an artistic flair and gives the dress dimension. With an A-line style, choosing a material that adds structure, such as satin, creates a flattering shape.
The bride should take care to see that the dress is not too loose, as this adds the appearance of extra pounds. It is important to choose a wedding dress that reflects the bride's personal style. The bride might opt for bows, flowers or beading to give her dress a personal touch.
