The Best Bridal Brands That Carry All the Sizes

Despite regular improvements and greater inclusivity in the fashion industry right now, there is still an undeniable dearth of options for of-the-moment clothing for women who wear a size 14 or above—at least compared to those for women who wear smaller sizes. Bridal, however, is a whole other challenge.

About a month ago, The New York Times reported on major nationwide boutiques expanding options for brides-to-be who don't deserve to struggle slipping into size 6 samples. But that's really the beginning of how far the industry has left to go. Thankfully, the seven brands ahead are helping lead the change.

Not only do the designers below feel current and offer tons of style options, but they all come available in a generous range of sizes (many starting at 0 and going up to 22/24) and are accessible no matter where you live. "Inclusivity is the future, and the brands that are hanging on to outdated concepts of who their 'ideal' woman is will be left behind," says Denise Jin, founder of try-on-at-home bridal brand Floravere. As the leader of one of the best examples of size-inclusive wedding wear, she says this approach is so fundamental to her business. "Since the day we launched, we started hearing stories and feedback from plus-size brides about the challenges that can make the traditional boutique experience especially frustrating and out of touch."

We outlined this below, as well as six more must-know brands that set a positive example of what saying yes to the dress really means when everyone has the option to do so.
