Frequently Asked Questions
What style dress looks best on plus size brides?
There is a variety of silhouettes that look amazing on plus-size brides. From a-line to mermaid or fit-and-flare, there are plenty of styles that will flatter your curves on your wedding day. Work with a bridal consultant when you shop and try on an array of styles and silhouettes help you find the perfect dress for your shape.
What is considered plus size for wedding dresses?
Plus size wedding dresses typically range from sizes 22/24 to 34/36; however, sizing can vary by country. Also keep in mind that wedding dress sizing overall typically runs higher from what you normally wear day to day. Be sure to check with your local bridal shop to see if they carry wedding dress samples in larger sizes, as not all shops do. Size inclusivity is important to us at True Society, and all of our bridal shops will carry a wide range of plus size gowns for our brides to try on during their bridal appointment.
What should I wear under plus size wedding dresses?
What you wear beneath your wedding dress depends on the specific bridal gown you choose and what you are comfortable with as a bride. Shapewear can vary by color, fabric, size, and style, such as where the "plunge" is located. After you have selected the perfect dress to wear on your wedding day, work with your bridal consultant to learn what the best plus size shapewear you can wear to ensure a smooth look while celebrating and embracing your curves.
How should I shop for a plus size wedding dress?
Finding the right dress can be a stressful and time consuming process, so ensuring the bridal shop near you carries samples in your size is the first step, as some bridal shops don't carry plus size samples to try on. We also recommend you bring nude undergarments when trying on gowns, as this will help you best visualize yourself in the dress. You will then want to work closely with your bridal consultant to ensure everything fits just right when you find the perfect wedding dress.
Why is it so hard to find a plus size wedding dress?
For a lot of plus size brides the wedding dress shopping process can be emotionally and mentally draining as many stores still aren't prepared to serve brides of all shapes and sizes. Our True Society locations aim to make dress shopping a fun and positive experience for all plus size brides. With our EveryBody/EveryBride collection, our stores are sure to have a variety of dresses for everyone, so you can focus on what you actually look like in your dream dress rather than having to imagine what it might look like.
