As a plus sized girl, I’ve always found it difficult to get the cute clothes that fit me well! I’m a tall size 22 and that seems to be the size of the season in plus sized stores. So, whenever I shop, I have to pay full price (no sales on this size). So, to justify the price, I often find myself just wearing what I buy until it gets holes in it.
Yes, I was hopeful in the beginning to not be plus size when it came time for the wedding, but now that I’m a little under 5 months away from the big day, it’s time to face the music!
I remember reading on The Knot about all the cute bridal accessories available in stores and online. The problem?
See that in the red circle? Highest size is a 10!! Do I dare DIY? Well, when it comes to clothes, I’d rather leave it to the professionals. So, no DIY rhinestone shirt.
Then, Mom Ballet Flat showed me a beautiful dress (possible rehearsal dress) on a plus sized designer’s site called Kiyonna, and within the site, I found the bridal shop! A PLUS SIZED bridal shop!
Let’s just say I’m gonna go a little purchase happy whenever it gets closer to the wedding! This apparel goes up to 3x and even some styles go up to 5X on this site.
Check out a sampling of what they have!!
Do any of you plus sized brides out there have any other bridal apparel websites to share?
