The Most Amazing Wedding Dress for Big Belly Brides


The wedding day is just around the corner and you’re still freaking out over your fat belly. Well ladies, let me tell you it’s okay to freak out a little. Finding the right wedding dress is not an easy feat and one that hides the belly is even more so but you know what they say, honey, “Nothing’s impossible.” That means finding a wedding dress for big belly is not that difficult.

How to Choose Wedding Dresses for Brides with Big Belly

Here are a few things that you can keep in mind while shopping for your wedding day gown.

Shape of the Dress

You cannot go on to choose trumpet-shaped or mermaid style dresses as these will do nothing to hide the extra pounds around the midsection. Empire cut and A-line gowns are a great way to show off your upper half while naturally concealing your midsection.

Type & Design of Fabric

The fabric of your gown plays a key role in concealing your tummy. Steer off the clingy and stretchy material and go for the lighter fabrics like organza, chiffon, and tulle. Choose dresses with delicate patterns as they tend to have a slimming effect on the wearer. Wedding dress for big belly may also consist of satin and net to create a fluffy effect around the mid-section.

50’s style skirts, long sleeves or the halter necks can divert the eyes from the pot belly.

Embellishments & Accessories

Things like big bows and shiny accessories like necklace, earrings or tiaras are a great way to grab the attention.

Don’t forget corsets or Spanx! It is one of your best bets to evenly spread out the belly and make you look slimmer. Of course, you must choose the size of the Spanx and its fabric very carefully, the right size will flatter your body but the wrong one will worsen the effect. The fabric of the Spanx must be thin so that it doesn’t affect your dress in any way. Remember to try it on with the dress before deciding on one.
