Every year, hundreds of thousands of articles are written about crash "wedding dress" diets and dropping a dress size in order to fit into your dream dress. Many of these diets are unhealthy, unsafe and demoralising. If you are getting married, you should not feel pressurised into changing your body for your wedding day, if you are already happy with the way you look. There are actually thousands of different plus size wedding dresses available for people who do not normally wear small sizes of clothing.
Buying plus size wedding dresses which you know will fit perfectly is a much safer option for your big day than buying a smaller size of dress and desperately dieting to try to squeeze into in. When you diet, your body shape can change in different ways, and there is no guarantee that the weight loss which you actually achieve will allow you to fit into the style of dress which you have purchased. What is more, dieting in stressful situations (such as under a strict time limit) actually makes dieting much harder. As well as limiting weight loss, this could also put unnatural stress onto your relationship in the run up to the big day.
Choosing plus size wedding dresses will also mean that you can find something that looks great on you, without having to change. This can help to make you feel much more confident in the run up to the wedding. Knowing that you have a dress that you know you look great in will help to make planning a little bit easier!
Special plus size wedding dresses have also been designed especially to flatter the shape of larger women, and to make their natural curves look beautiful. Whilst no designs are taboo in the world of plus size fashion, designs may have been created in a slightly different way, so that they fit better and feel more comfortable whilst on. For example, some plus size dresses include additional integral bust support for women who have a larger bra size. This can help to make strapless dresses more comfortable for plus size women to wear.
Your dress choice will also help to show everyone at your wedding that you do feel comfortable with the way that you are, and that you do not have to conform to the stereotypes of beauty that the media places upon woman. It is you wedding so you should feel happy, confident and (most of all) loved.
