Curve Couture

Last week was rough, but I'm back with another Wedding Wednesday! I know all of my readers (Hi, Mom, Dad, and Janet!) are enthused.

I had posted before about how chubby broads can feel invisible to the bridal industrial complex. So, I was thrilled to see that Anne Barge is now offering trunk shows with larger sample sizes!

Called Curve Couture, these trunk shows will feature samples in sizes 12-20. Typical bridal trunk shows offer sizes 4-8. Finally the pleasantly plump bride can enjoy a trunk show without worrying about busting a sample dress open or, worse, not having a prayer of trying on the damn thing!

The White Dress by the Shore in Clinton, CT is hosting one of these trunk shows February 2-4. I visited the shop back in November, and while I haven't "said yes to the dress" yet, I was enchanted by White Dress's cute decor and friendly staff. Bonus—the Anne Barge gown I tried on happened to be one of the most flattering of the bunch!

I definitely recommend checking out The White Dress by the Shore if you're in the market for a wedding gown. I don't know if they still have appointments available for this specific trunk show (they may!), but they have a lot of other events coming up, too.

And, if you are not in the area, make sure to look for Curve Couture trunk shows near you! I love this concept so much, and I hope other designers consider doing the same.
