Hey lovelies! Miss me yet? I’m sure you don’t from all of these fab guest posts I’ve had in my place! Today Kiss My Tulle is stopping by to give some great suggestions for bridesmaid dress options for curvy bridesmaids. Having a bit of a gadunkadunk (I’ve never actually written that word out before – that was weird!) myself, I totally appreciate this post 🙂
Those of you who read Kiss My Tulle know that I have been engaged in a lengthy and difficult struggle with my weight for the last two years. Since August 2010, I have successfully lost over 60 pounds and now have 20 left to meet my personal (healthy) goal weight. This has been really rewarding for me (you can read a little bit more about my journey here) and I’m so happy to be able to once again go a shopping and find cute outfits to wear. Because you know what? Being plus-sized and shopping ARE NOT a match made in heaven. In fact, it pretty much sucks.
But Cris, what does this have to do with weddings? Um, everything. Because I’ll bet that most of you out there have a wedding party. And I’m ALSO willing to bet that at least one of your bridesmaids is not a size zero. In fact, I’ll wager that at least one of your ‘maids is a sexy size 12 or more. And that slinky little mermaid gown you picked out for your wedding party to wear? Not. Gonna. Happen for at least ONE lady in your wedding party. And if you try to force it – she will hate you, hate herself, and hate your entire wedding day. And is that really what you want?
No? Then you’re in luck. Because these days, it is totally possible to find cute, affordable, and plus-sized dresses that are completely appropriate for a wedding. And lucky for you, I’ve rounded up a few for you (and your ‘maids). Each dress is under $50!:
*1. ASOS Curve Exclusive Cocktail Dress With Corsage Shoulder. *2. Old Navy Tie-Belt Jersey Dress in Nebulous Blue. *3. Dots Striped Sweetheart Dress. *4. J Crew Tiered Ruffle Dress in Cerise. *5. ASOS CURVE Slash Neck Lace Dress. Simply Be Angel Sleeve Maxi Dress. *6.
Are you a plus-sized bridesmaid? Did the bride try to help you find the perfect dress for your body? Or are you two still looking? Let’s start a conversation in the comments. Oh, and Happy Friday!
