Can we discuss what a bummer it is to feel anxious about buying a bridal gown or plus size dresses? Weddings are meant to be a fun celebration of love, and every time I’ve been told someone wants me in their wedding my immediate thought is “oh gosh, they don’t know how difficult buying a plus size dress is”. I get a knot in my stomach thinking that I’m going to be the odd man out, everyone else in cute matching dresses and me in an almost match. I was so excited when I found Azazie. I imagined what my wedding would have been like with a wedding party in gowns that fit their style, and a color that matched my wedding theme. I thought about how cool it would be to be able to offer everyone an option that they would love, that would fit them beautifully. Azazie does that for you, and dang it we all deserve that!I have written about their gowns in a previous post about where to shop for plus size brides, and now I get to show you what their beautiful options look like on a plus size body!
The dress above is my favorite that I got to try. It’s the Ginger style in dusty rose, and I’m wearing a size 26 (as usual). The ordering process is so easy, and I was so happy that their size guide was true to my normal measurements. I received 6 dresses in the mail to check out, all of them bridesmaid styles. Azazie offers a try-before-you-buy service that allows you to check out bridesmaid dresses for $10 a dress, or $25 for a bridal gown. After you find the dress you love, you can have it customized for free!
All of the dresses I tried on were beautifully constructed and surprisingly comfortable. There were pleats in just the right places, and the boning in the bodices never poked me or dug into my back fat. So many plus size gowns feel ill-fitting and cumbersome, Azazie manages to make plus size gowns that feel well constructed but still allow you to move and be a twirling princess!
You can check out all of the gowns I got to try on in the video below! Big thanks to Azazie.com for providing all the dresses, and for working to make everyone’s special day just a little bit easier.
