Shopping for a wedding dress is always both exciting and stressful. And if you find yourself searching for the perfect dress to wear while you walk down the aisle but aren’t sure which style will flatter your curves, we’re here to help. We wanted to find the best wedding dress styles for plus-size brides, and that’s exactly what we set out to do, so you don’t have to.

We asked Kristen Barstow, founder and owner of Vocelles, a bridal boutique passionate about providing wedding gown options for plus-size brides, for her expertise on what the most stylish brides are wearing for their weddings.

“We encourage all of our brides, regardless of size, to try on a few different silhouettes to determine what they feel the most confident and gorgeous in,” Barstow shares. “The majority of our plus-size brides select a fit-and-flare gown that shows off their curves beautifully.” The boutique owner also says many of her clients go with an A-line style dress. “Both styles are very flattering on brides of all sizes.”

With that in mind, we found the best places to shop for your bridal gown, featuring these popular styles. Check them out now.

No matter which option you choose, you’re sure to stun as you walk down the aisle.
