After all the excitement of the engagement has settled, your mind will quickly turn to THE dress. It can be quite a minefield knowing where to start when it comes to choosing your wedding frock, but don’t let your shape or size dictate what you are wearing. Whether you are size 6 or 26, there are so many fabulous frocks to choose from on the high street that will show off your figure and have you feeling extra special on your big day. To get you started on finding ‘the one’, we have hunted down eight of the best frocks available in a range of sizes from 6-28, and all for under £700. Yes, really! We guarantee you will want to say ‘I do’ in one of these bridal beauties… So where should you look?
First up, ASOS’ Curve collection is a no-brainer. Available in sizes 18-28, it houses a whole variety of shapes, lengths and colours.
Next, BHS have a HUGE selection of gorge bridal dresses – and go up to a size 22! To balance out curvy hips on a pear shape or accentuate an hourglass figure, go for a fishtail to create the ultimate curvy silhouette while you walk up the aisle.
Thirdly, while Coast’s frocks only go up to a size 18, we just had to give their selection a mention. They really do have something for everyone.
If you’re worried about your upper arms while throwing your bouquet or cutting the cake – go for a semi sheer sleeve. Debenhams have a large selection of ¾ sleeves and go up to a size 22.
After something chic and simple? Kaliko has a whole host of gowns for you. Covering sizes 6-20, their selection is perfect for a modern bride who likes to keep it simple on their big day.
Dusky pink is a super pretty alternative to white for any brides looking for something different, and Jacques Verts house a number of dusty pink numbers – right up to a size 24.
A fan of the glam? Monsoon’s gown range is chock-full of detail and their beaded number looks as though it came straight out of the Great Gatsby!
Last but not least, look to Phase Eight for dresses with a gorgeous, designer feel. We’re talking capped sleeves, sheer cut-outs and fishtail hems.
Happy shopping ladies!
