The Big Problem With Plus-Size Wedding Dresses

A few months ago, when Who What Wear photographed the wardrobe of broadcaster and journalist, Caryn Franklin, we talked of many things but in particular body diversity and the severe lack of bridal options for the plus-size markets. I've always struggled to find really great curve wedding dress options to include in our wedding content—sure, if you have a whole heap of cash to spare and oodles of confidence, you could order yourself something bespoke, but what if you simply have options to peruse and actually try on? The fact is, even a size 12 is going to struggle in some bridal stores to give the samples a spin—let alone feel self-assured enough to order something in your desired size, should it even exist. You can feel as fabulous as can be 365 days of the year, but even the most positive women out there can feel less-than-adequate when it comes to this major style decision.
