Let’s talk about some common plus-size bridal concerns:

Since the day my now-fiancé, James, proposed to me, I have both anticipated and feared shopping for my wedding gown. Anticipated, for obvious reasons — one being I’m getting married and this is a real step toward the big day. Feared, because while I am a huge advocate for the body-positive movement, I just can’t seem to love and accept my own body. No matter how hard I try to change that mindset. I also can’t seem to get past that I have a few extra pounds on my husband-to-be, even though he doesn’t really care or notice.

Before going to the bridal store, I had my mind set on the type of dress I wanted; one that would hide my body. A gown that would draw attention away from my oddly-shaped chest, my “hip dips,” my Mennonite butt (Mennonites aren’t particularly the healthiest eaters), and my floppy thighs. I didn’t want to look like I was shoved into a sausage casing, although since most of the dresses were size two to eight, this was unavoidable. Without realizing it, I was looking for a floor-length paper bag. Read more personal wedding stories at XO Jane

Despite the fact that the average American woman is a size 14, shopping for a plus-size wedding gown has been a trying time (instead of the super-fun one it should be!) for many until the last few years. But now, it seems brands have finally started listening to the conversation and giving plus-size brides-to-be tons of options when it comes to choosing their wedding-day look. Plus-size subscription service Dia & Co released data back in February, along with a full-page ad in The New York Times calling on designers to start accounting for women of all sizes, that found that 72 percent of the 1,500 women (who identified as plus-size) surveyed said they do not believe fashion designers create their designs with the average American woman in mind. And almost 80 percent said they would spend more money on clothing if they had more options. Read more at Brides
