Trend: A Little Fit, A Little Flare
Searching for a sexy, form-fitting style that smooths and flatters your curves? Look no further than a plus-size mermaid wedding dress. This bridal gown silhouette is quickly becoming the go-to style for plus-size brides thanks to its ability to create that vixen-y hourglass silhouette.Curve hugging wedding dresses, such as Emmanuelle Lynette by Sottero and Midgley or Lonnie Lynette by Maggie Sottero will wow your betrothed and guests right at the first look!
Off-the-shoulder wedding dresses are sexy yet romantic and above all, supremely figure-flattering. This type of neckline creates a triangle shape and whittles the waist to strategically de-emphasize your mid-section while accentuating your upper body. Glamorous and classic, Chevelle Lynette by Maggie Sottero, a gorgeous off-the-shoulder wedding dress, proves that this hot neckline is perfect for plus-size brides!
Trend: Simple Romance
Classically beautiful and effortlessly elegant, simple wedding dresses present a blank canvas for your wedding day look. A minimalist style gives you the perfect opportunity to choose some key accessories to emphasize your assets and hide your flaws.
Take for instance, Valerie Lynette by Rebecca Ingram, a simple plus size ball gown with the right amount of romance thanks to the subtle lace appliques and the thin bow belt. The thicker straps in this plus size simple wedding dress will also help keep you secure from the walk down the aisle to the last dance. Add a cathedral veil to elongate your figure or a mantilla veil to frame your face.
Trend: All Over Lace
Going for a timeless bridal look? Then lace is definitely a must! Lace bridal gowns are not only on-trend, but they are also one of the most figure-flattering styles for curvy brides, especially if they are paired with a low-cut neckline. Devon by Sottero and Midgley, and Daphne Lynette by Rebecca Ingram are two excellent examples. We love the fact that these plus size simple wedding dresses are elevated by unique shoulder details (double strap and cap-sleeves) to draw attention to your back and neckline in the prettiest of ways.
Trend: Lightweight and Flowy
Everyone wants a wedding dress that they can dance in! And what’s more comfortable than a flowy, lightweight gown that allows you to flow down the aisle and also drop it like it’s hot on the dancefloor?!
Meet Marisol by Rebecca Ingram, Savannah by Maggie Sottero and Corinne by Rebecca Ingram, three beautiful princess-looks constructed of lightweight fabrics that deliver comfort with a figure-flattering silhouette and a modern fairytale effect.
Another marvelous option is Zandrina by Maggie Sottero.
Trend: Sparkly PrincessFinally, let's talk about my favorite 2020 trend – the sparkly ball gown wedding dress. In my book, every bride should feel like a princess on her wedding day and nothing says fairytale princess like a full skirt and a lot of sparkle.
This silhouette will accentuate your natural waistline while the voluminous bottom will work to balance out a more top-heavy body. The perfect examples are Taylor Lynette by Maggie Sottero and Thaddeus by Sottero and Midgley. The beaded bodice on both of these dresses is designed to support and enhance your gorgeous hourglass figure while the silhouette and skirt work their magic to balance your look.
