The Best Places to Shop Wedding Dresses in Plus Sizes

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.


ASOS isn't just a go-to spot for typical dress shopping. They offer a curated collection of plus-size wedding dresses and separates in both classic silhouettes and the more fashion-forward styles you'd expect from the trendy retailer.
