 With a plethora of talented designers to choose from, selecting the one who understands your style and aspirations requires thoughtful consideration. Never fear- Curve is here to help!

Embrace your curves and celebrate your unique beauty with a dress that reflects your style and enhances your silhouette. Here's a guide to selecting fabrics and details for your custom plus-size wedding dress.

Luxe Fabrics for Comfort

When choosing fabrics, prioritize comfort without compromising on looking dang good on the aisle. First, take into account where you will have your wedding, the season, and the weather. 

For example, a warm beach wedding calls for breathable and soft fabrics such as chiffon, lace, or tulle, that gracefully drape over curves, providing a flattering and cool fit. 

If want to move easily throughout the day, smooth, stretchy materials include jersey or crepe, which are both versatile. 

Structured Silhouettes

Another pivotal moment in your wedding dress journey is choosing the silhouette that was meant for your body. 

This is where consulting with a Curve stylist can really help with your decision. Sure, want a dress that complements your body shape and accentuates your best features. 

However, try to keep an open mind. Alot of times curvy brides don’t think a tighter fit will work for them, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Don’t be afraid to try on that mermaid gown! You never know what you’ll fall in love with. At Curve, we provide a safe, laid-back atmosphere to try on dresses, where you can feel at ease.

Embellished Magic

Lace and intricate embroidery add a touch of romance and sophistication to any wedding dress. Consider dresses adorned with delicate lace appliqués or embroidered details strategically placed to enhance your curves. These details can create a harmonious and visually appealing effect.

If you love a bit of sparkle, consider beaded or sequined accents. Whether it's a subtle shimmer or full-on glamour, tasteful beading or sequins can elevate your custom plus-size wedding dress, catching the light in magical ways.

Layers and Draping

Incorporate customizable layers to achieve the desired volume and movement. Layers of tulle or chiffon can create a dreamy and ethereal effect, allowing you to express your unique style with a gown that flows gracefully as you walk down the aisle.

For functionality, you can wear a detachable skirt. This allows you to remove layers, which can increase mobility if you’re trying to get down on the dance floor after the ceremony.

Skillful draping and ruching can work wonders in enhancing your curves and providing a customized fit. These techniques add depth and texture to the gown, accentuating your body in all the right places while maintaining a flattering and comfortable feel.
