Words were said, tears were shed, and now your left hand is slightly heavier from the ring you’ve Instagrammed more times than you care to admit; you’re newly engaged and living on cloud nine. But nothing can make a new bride-to-be come crashing down to earth like wedding dress shopping — especially a curvy bride-to-be who's discovering the options aren't quite as endless as she had hoped.
Although those with unlimited funds can always splurge on a custom-made piece, most budget-conscious brides are limited to small-stock stores or the vast wilderness of the internet; it's like there are too many choices and not enough all at once. That's why we've curated a collection of the most gorgeous gowns on the market for ladies sizes 14 and up. Click through to find your dream piece and prepare to tell all your friends what a breeze it was to find "the dress."
Ed. note: Not all dresses are shown on plus-size models, but all of the dresses to follow are available in plus sizes.
