Real talk: There's a wedding dress out there for every bride. Just because you're looking for a plus size wedding dress that does your curves justice, doesn't mean you have to stick to one dress silhouette, hide certain parts of your body or choose a more modest design. In fact, some of the trendiest styles out there—think: dramatic ball gowns, sleek sheaths and slinky slip dresses—look amazing on a lot of different body types. What's the key to finding your perfect fit? An open mind. And we're thrilled designers are offering more size-inclusive options in their collections for brides of all shapes and sizes. Below, the best places to find plus size wedding dresses—plus styles you can add to cart right now. 

Where to Buy Plus Size Wedding Dresses 

Your Local Bridal Salon

If you're shopping for a plus size wedding dress at least nine months in advance of your wedding date and looking for one-on-one attention and an extensive collection of gowns, you can't beat your local bridal salon. While shopping online for your dress may seem like the more convenient option, visiting a bridal salon is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. For starters, you'll get face-to-face interaction with a wedding dress expert to help guide you, taking the guesswork out of finding your perfect size and silhouette. Additionally, you have the opportunity to touch and feel the dresses you're considering, so you know exactly what you're paying for. Trust us, while dress photos may look dreamy online, there's a huge difference between high-quality fabrics and embellishments and low-quality ones in person. Editor's Tip: Look for bridal shops that specialize in size-inclusive gowns. If you don't have a size-inclusive shop in your area—don't fret—call your local salon, give them your clothing size and ask if they have a variety of size-inclusive samples available.
