Shopping for a Curvy Sized Dress

Shopping for your perfect wedding dress marks one of the first moments of really envisioning your wedding day. There’s nothing quite like seeing yourself in a bridal gown for the first time or finally finding the dress you’ll walk down the aisle in! At Alta Costura, we want to ensure every bride who comes to our shop finds a lovely, welcoming experience to cherish forever—not an experience in which you feel at all undervalued or overlooked. 


For our curvy brides, we always advise to be selective about the stores you choose to look for your dream dress in—while most bridal shops have a plus size section, they may not always have a good range of gowns. Sometimes shops advertise a plus size ‘range’  that turns out to be a few token dresses at the end of the rack, giving you limited choices and a shopping experience that won’t leave you with the gorgeous wedding dress you’ve been dreaming of!


At Alta Costura, our passion for ensuring every bride finds not only a breathtaking wedding gown but a truly exquisite experience shopping with us extends to our dress selection. When we say we have a plus size bridal section, we mean it! We have an entire showroom dedicated to our curvy brides, so that you have a wide selection of absolutely stunning designer wedding dresses to choose from in sizes 20 to 30, and top designers such as Mori Lee, Julietta, Phoenix and Romantica.  “The best experience!!!!” according to real bride Emily, who goes on to say, “After a failed attempt yesterday and pulling on dresses far far too small and having to picture what it would be like, it was such a pleasure to be able to have a whole section not just a few dresses to try on in my size.”

If you’re a plus size bride planning her wedding, come visit us at Alta Costura! Book your appointment knowing that you’ll find beautiful wedding dresses of all silhouettes and styles in your size.
