Designers like Jason Jennings, the genius behind the multi-award winning Sonsie collection from Veromia, know exactly how to cut a gown to fit and flatter your body best.

Jason felt that most dresses for curvy girls were uninspiring, so in 2009 he created Sonsie – the internal corsetry and fantastic fit gives plus-size brides sleeker silhouettes and added support.

Tips for Plus Size Wedding Dress Shopping

  1. Choose your fabric wisely. Chiffons will skim over lumps and bumps, while heavier satins and taffetas can be ruched for a flattering effect.
  2. Use what you’ve got! The brilliant structuring of dedicated plus-size gowns means you can really work that hourglass shape – don’t be scared of curve-hugging silhouettes like the mermaid!
  3. Think about clever accessories. A well-positioned sash and brooch will draw the eye to the smallest part of your body, and will help to balance out your top and bottom halves.
  4. Speak up! Don’t be afraid to end the appointment if you feel that you’re not being treated well – you deserve to feel fantastic during your wedding dress shopping!
