Our new season plus size wedding dresses have arrived and we are so excited to share them with you! This season is our biggest collection of plus size dresses to date. All our plus size samples are available to try on in the boutique in sizes 18-24 and many of these can be ordered up to size 36. So if you’re a curvy bride-to-be, we think you are going to love our newest collection. Do you want a sneak peak of the latest trends for curvy brides?

1. Plus Size Dresses with Sleeves!

The ‘sleeves’ wedding dress trend is going nowhere. In 2025 plus size wedding dresses with sleeves will still be a major trend but we are seeing a lot more ‘detachable sleeve elements’ availabe now for brides. Lots of our curvy brides come into the boutique thinking they would like a sleeve, but for brides getting married summer, a full-length sleeve isn't always a practical option. Curvy brides love detachable sleeves as this gives them the arm coverage they want, but also allows them to change up their look by swapping a full sleeve to, for example an off the shoulder strap for the reception and dancing part of their wedding day. Plus, as detachable sleeves can be added to almost any of our plus size bridal gowns, it gives our plus size brides a lot more choice and to allow them to really make their look individual.  

Here's one of our favourites- Aria. Aria is a gorgeous fit and flare bridal gown adorned with pretty lace appliqués, a plunge notch neckline and sheer blouson sleeves which can be worn off the shoulder, on the shoulder and are detachable so can be removed and replaced with an off the shoulder strap for a second wedding day look.   Aria is a gorgeous boho plus size wedding dress for the girl looking for a more relaxed wedding day look.

2. Plus Size Wedding Dresses with Over Skirts

Over-skirts are a huge trend for 2025 brides, and we have a gorgeous selection of these available in our plus size collection. Over skirts are amazing for that bride that can’t decide if she prefers a more fitted look or if she wants to go all out with a fuller skirt. You can wear the overskirt for a little extra drama the ceremony and remove it later in the day, leaving you with a fitted sexy silhouette and a stunning wedding dress that you can easily dance the night away in. From beaded and glitter overskirts to simple elegant styles, our plus size wedding dress collection has them all.  

We are constantly adding new styles with overskirts to our plus size collection- here is one of our favourites ‘Frankie’.   

This luxe Mikado silk wedding gown is truly a showstopper. With a draped strapless bodice and plunging sweetheart neckline, this flattering fit-and-flare silhouette hugs the figure past the hips with elegant contour seaming and lengthens into a stunning and sleek train. Frankie also has detachable off-the-shoulder bow sleeve details can be added to ensure you are hitting all the trends in one stunning plus size wedding dress.  

3. Off the Shoulder Plus Size Dresses!

One of our favourite trends for 2023 brides is off the shoulder wedding dresses and we have some gorgeous gowns in our latest plus size collection featuring this look.  Off the shoulder has lots going for it, it's romantic and sultry and on the practical side, adds a little coverage to arms without brides feeling too covered up. This trend is going nowhere and we expect to see lots more of it in our new arrivals over the next few months!  

Phoebe is one of the favourite soft a-line styles for plus sizes brides in the boutique at the minute and it is utterly fabulous in real life! From a strapless sweetheart neckline bodice, detachable off-the-shoulder straps attach for an idyllic touch. Softly pleated layers of sparkle tulle shine through sequin-embellished lace accents and wrap around the bodice to reveal a stunning sheer back that highlights each delicate floral detail. From the waist, frothy layers of tulle complete the soft A-line skirt and open at the thigh for an on-trend finishing touch to this exquisite wedding gown. Our store sample is size 20. 

4. Simple Plus Size Wedding Dresses

Influencer & celebrity weddings of the last few years all featured simple, chic wedding dresses so it's no surprise this is one of the biggest trends for brides at the minute. Sometimes less is more and we've felt there is a need for more simple yet modern options for plus size brides who don't want a traditional lace gown. Our latest collection features lots of simple plus size wedding gowns in every silhouette and in a range of different fabrics so our plus size brides have more choice than ever before!

Our store sample of Anna is size 20.
