Plus Size Bride in Essense of Australia D1732

Plus Size  Bride in  Essense of Australia  D1732  Who says a  Bride who is a size 18 bride can’t wear a fitted dress!!!!! Not me. This bride is wearing a size 18 Essense of Australia and she looks FANTASTIC . I altered the dress firm under the bust to a little below waistline. This allows the dress to stay up as it is quite fitted in the waist and allows bust line not to  have the bust overhanging on the sides. The back also looked flattering .

Hi Brides to be. Plus size bride in fit and flare lace wedding dress. I have a few brides asking about lace wedding dresses. Lace is not always the most forgiving dress on every bride. When I saw this Essense of Australia D1846 I thought it's a perfect lace dress for the plus size bride. Why does it work?  

Winter Bride

Winter Bride

Essense of Australia. A bridal alteration I have done this week for my winter bride. I ordered extra lace of the D1639 and added a lace sleeve. This dress had an armhole so adding a sleeve wasn't a problem . I have had many brides that  purchased their gowns elsewhere and wanted me to add a sleeve to a strapless dress as the sales person said it can be done. It is less complicated and more cost affective if you have an armhole to add a sleeve. 
Little tips like this makes your wedding dress buying stress free

Hi Brides to be,This bride came in looking for a wedding dress but in A-line or princess cut as she was told mermaid dress would not suit her body shape. I looked at my brides body shape and said to her it  depends on the mermaid style if it suits you. I said try this Essense of Australia D1608. I explained to my bride that the pleated ruched design is flattering and the cap beaded sleeve right at the edge of her shoulders would draw the waistline in. The filled in beaded back going into a V is another great feature to draw the waist in. The dress is a size 18 and I have not altered it yet for her . I think her curves look great and it definitely figure flattering can't wait till the  wedding day so I can show you how stunning this bride is going to look. It's all about knowledge of styling a bride.

This Essense of Australia flattered my bride to be figure shape. This is another wedding dress that I gave which looks better on a bride than a mannequin. This bride is between a size 16/18. I think it is very flattering and slimming on. The soft chiffon rushing made this bride feel very comfortable and confident .

Hi Brides to be, This bride came in with a strapless low back dress in mind. I ask my bride what bra cup she is and she said DD. When a bride is heavier in the bust a strapless low back isn't my first choice, as you need support in the back bodice .

Essense Bridal Lace A-line wedding dress   If your a 'classic pear' shape bride trying to hide or slim-down your bottom and hip area. Your best feature would be your waist, so we need to show it off. A-line wedding dress would be the most complimenting.
