Bridal boutique specialist, Keeley Moore reveals what style best suits curvy figures.
"First things first – don't worry! There are lots of dresses that can help accentuate your curves and celebrate your body shape.
"Most bridal boutiques can order gowns up to a size 26, but there are stores that stock or specialise in designs specifically created for the more curvy bride.
"A corset bodice is a fantastic way of emphasising your silhouette.
"Don't be tempted to go too big. You don't want to look like the dress is drowning you. You can still achieve a princess look with an A-line style.
"A high neckline can elongate your body. Even simple straps can draw the eye up and make you appear taller.
"Don't be afraid to try something more fitted. A fit and flare will look great with your shape.
"Finally, and most importantly, choose something you're comfortable in. Your confidence will radiate from you if you love the frock you're wearing."
