For every bride, finding the perfect wedding dress is a momentous task, and plus-size brides are no exception. Discovering the ideal gown involves exploring various styles that not only showcase personal taste but also provide comfort and confidence on the big day. 

In this blog post, we’re focusing on timeless wedding dress styles. These beautiful designs never go out of style and always turn heads on the aisle. Our guide showcases the top bride favorites.

A-Line Silhouette

A classic choice for its universally flattering shape, the A-line silhouette gently flares from the waist, creating an elegant and timeless look. Plus-size brides can embrace the grace of this style, as it accentuates the waist while providing a comfortable and flowing skirt.

Ball Gown 

For those dreaming of a fairytale or formal wedding, the ball gown silhouette is a go-to option. With a fitted bodice and a voluminous skirt, this style creates a dramatic, yet flattering effect. Plus-size brides can choose ball gowns with supportive bodices and strategic detailing to highlight their curves.

Empire Waist 

The empire waist silhouette features a high waistline just below the bust, flowing into a loose and flowing skirt. This style is not only flattering but also incredibly comfortable, making it a perfect choice for plus-size brides who want effortless style without sacrificing mobility.


The mermaid silhouette is a sexy choice, hugging the body from the chest to the knee, then flaring out in a dramatic train. Sometimes brides feel like this style shows too much, but don’t be afraid to give it a try- the mermaid can be quite flattering for curvy body types.


Known for its simple elegance, the sheath silhouette gently skims the body without excessive volume. This style is perfect for plus-size brides who prefer a more understated and sophisticated look. Consider adding lace or beaded embellishments for more glamour. This dress is also perfect if you want to emphasize accessorizing.

Tea-Length Trends

For a vintage-inspired charm, tea-length dresses are making a comeback. These dresses feature a hem that falls between the knee and the ankle, offering a playful and retro vibe.
