Finding your dream wedding dress can be tricky and even difficult if you don’t fit in into the mainstream understanding of the ‘right size’. Not to mention, not every bride-to-be can aspire to be a size zero on her wedding day! What is more interesting is that the average size of a woman falls between a size 12 and 14 – which is now considered to be ‘plus size’.

However, don’t worry. We have got you covered on your special day, by showing you six chic wedding dress designs that fit splendidly on any size.

The Lacy Bodice
