04 Jun In the News: Pretty Plus Size Wedding Dresses
Influencer and Bustle.com Contributor Olivia Muenter Shares Her Picks
When influencer, editor, and plus size advocate, Olivia Muenter got engaged, she immediately did what many brides do – consult Pinterest. She examined boards she had spent years putting together for wedding inspiration and quickly was struck by the startling fact that none of the brides on her wedding gown page looked like her. Not a single image featured a bride over a size 6. There were no images featuring pretty plus size wedding dresses, so she took it upon herself to change that.
Olivia worked with the editorial team for Bustle.com to seek out the best plus size dresses you can buy right now, and photograph them on stunning plus size models. In the accompanying piece, Olivia recognized David’s Bridal as one of the few stores that truly has gowns for brides of any shape, size, or budget and highlights our designer collaborations, price point, and inclusive sizing. Two wedding dresses from David’s Bridal were featured – see below.
Draped Off-The-Shoulder Crepe Sheath Gown
Brides looking for a chic, modern bridal look at an incredible price should consider this Draped Off-the-Shoulder Crepe Sheath Gown from the DB Studio Collection. The slim silhouette shows off curves, while the open neckline elongates the neck and draws attention to your face. For under $200, this wedding dress would be lovely for a casual wedding, City Hall elopement, or even a fancier rehearsal dinner. Proof that pretty plus size wedding dresses don’t have to cost a fortune!
Cap Sleeve Lace Illusion Plus Size Wedding Dress
Brides envisioning a grand bridal moment will love this Cap sleeve Lace Illusion Plus Size Wedding Dress from the Oleg Cassini Collection. Its ball gown skirt is fit for a princess, and layers of lace applique, tulle, and a touch of sparkle make this gown look ultra-luxe for under $2,000! A deep plunging neckline and open back freshen up this traditional silhouette and add a touch of sexy. Illusion sleeves and neckline add a bit of sheer coverage and support.
