Fashion has come so far for women, especially for plus size women. The days are over that you have to hide between oversized dark robes. Social media, body positive movement and the change of time have made it possible for plus size women to feel confident of how they dress and feel. Being plus size and a CocoMelody bride myself, I want to assure you that no matter what size you are, you will look absolutely stunning in your wedding dress on your big day! I promise!

CocoMelody offers a wide range of sizing and styles. It does not matter if you are a size 0 or 28, if you are looking for an A-Line or Trumpet/Mermaid style, CocoMelody has you covered! Not only does CocoMelody offer this wide spectrum but if you want your dress to fit like a glove, custom sizing is also available! What I enjoyed the most about my wedding dress was that I was able to customize certain features of the dress. E.g. if you desire a closed back instead of an open back, CocoMelody can alter to your wishes. CocoMelody caters to you and wants you to look and feel your best. Personally I believe any style of dress looks great on any body type, there is something feminine, sweet and elegant about dresses of any style. If you would like to know more about the styles CocoMelody offers for plus size brides, please keep on reading.
A-Line wedding dresses gradually flare from the natural waist to the floor, floating from the thigh and giving you that airy fairy-like feeling. Further styles that fall under A-Line are Ball Gown and Princess, think big and poofy.

Mermaid wedding dresses usually come with a corset closure which shows off all your curves. They hug your waist and hips and flare from your knees, which will give you that hourglass silhouette. I like to consider these the long version of cocktail dresses.

Gowns in the style of Sheath/Column are cut to follow your bodyís natural shape, due to its straight lines it may also have a lengthening effect. This style is very contemporary and sleek.

†4. Crop Top
If you think crop tops are a thing from the 90ís, then look again! Crop tops can be very flattering and can accentuate a small waist. Although these dresses might look like two individual pieces, they are usually connected by a very sheer fabric to keep everything in place. This is great for those who want to show some midriff but not too much.
Although one might not see it often, asymmetrical wedding dresses are still out there. Asymmetrical does not necessarily mean high and low cuts, which have certainly become a trend in the last years but also mean a lot of layering.

Magazines, commercials, social media etc. can try to put you in a box and dictate what you should wear but at the end of the day, it is all about you and the confidence and happiness you want to showcase, especially on a day as special as your wedding! Do not let rules define you, embrace yourself and be as glamorous as you want to be, because true beauty comes from within!
