Why you’ll love our plus size collection?
We stock plus size wedding dresses from the Stella York and Essense of Australia ‘Everybody Every Bride’ collections. We’ve been on the search now for a while for a fashion forward plus size range and until now we’ve found there was a lack of wedding dresses that reflect current trends and are up to date for the modern bride. Many styles for the fuller figured bride where overly reserved and a little old fashioned. With our ‘Everybody Every bride’ collections, our plus size brides try on the same dresses as all our other brides only in bigger sizes. The plus size versions also feature enhanced internal structure and support so the curvy bride feels and looks amazing!
So from off the shoulder, simple fabrics and racer necklines we have all the 2019 trends covered!

Tips for shopping for a plus size wedding dress?
Firstly don’t be nervous! Many of our brides are nervous about sizing when they come in, especially those on the search for a plus size wedding dress. Please don’t be, we’re here to help you find the dress of your dreams and we promise we’ll make it a lovely experience….just enjoy!
Research. We recommend researching the styles before you come in store so you have an idea of what styles you’d like to try on. Sometimes however, dresses can surprise and you know that fitted dress that you loved but didn’t think would suit you…it might just be the one to make you feel a million dollars, so keep an open mind. Our plus size wedding dresses are all available to view here- screenshot your favourites and we’ll start with these first but you won’t be restricted to trying on only these styles. Our consultant will work through all the styles and silhouettes with you.
Sizing. Sizing is what causes much of the nerves when wedding dress shopping. To help with this we have put the size of all our plus size wedding dresses under their description for you so you know before you come what size the sample will be. Keep in mind bridal sizing tends to be on the smaller side so if you are normally a size 20, in a wedding dress this may be a size 22. Bridal gowns rarely fit anyone perfectly so don’t worry too much about this, all of our wedding dresses can be ordered for you in a smaller or larger size. We’ve all sorts of magic tricks too to help pull in a gown that is too big or tuck you into a gown that’s on the smaller side. You need lots of imagination wedding dress shopping but we can promise you if you love it and it doesn’t quite close at the back, when it comes in your size and is altered to fit your curves perfectly, you will love it more and more!
Bring your nearest and dearest. It be overwhelming going to try on wedding dresses, particularly if you have a lot of different opinions. Make sure you bring those who opinions you need but also that you’re comfortable around. There’s lots of ways to involve others later, at your styling appointment and get their involvement to pick bridal accessories once the big decision is made.
As with all our other ranges, our plus size wedding dress collection is updated every season meaning that we have new gowns arriving most of the year around. You can keep up to date with new styles on our Facebook page.
