The first thing many women do once the wedding date is set, is start a diet so that they'll be able to fit into the dress of their dreams. But no amount of dieting can get everyone into a Size 2 â€”or even a Size 12. But even plus-sized brides should be able to feel beautiful on their wedding day. Although there are a number of online sites that offer some styles, Vows Bridal Boutique’s BridePower.com prides itself on being one of the few stores in the United States fully committed to â€œreal sizeâ€ women.
Instead of just having one or two samples, prospective brides have a full complement of dresses to try on, with a full selection of samples from top collections in sizes 18 â€“ 40 and â€œWâ€ sizes, meaning women don't have to try and squeeze into a too-small sample. Among the special occasion dresses that are offered are Liv Harris, Reem Acra, and Vera Wang.
Research indicates plus-size women were more likely to put off buying a dress for a number of reasons, including waiting in order to have more time to diet; concern they would not be able to find anything in their size that looked good; not knowing where to find plus-sized designer dresses; embarrassment; and an aversion to the shopping process in general. Vows Bridal Outlet is designed to make the entire buying process user-friendly and staffers are trained to specifically assist with plus size wedding dresses for full-figured brides.
