For the Curvier Bride


At Bradgate Brides we have such a large collection of gowns throughout the salon that many are available as larger samples to try on.

All the gowns below are available to try on in sizes  16 –  24  please contact reception on 01162 36 33 88 or email  us if you require an exact size sample that we may have in-store.

In our outlet and main season suite  we have over 50 gowns from size 16 through to size 24 as well as a limited number up to size 32.

Most of these can be purchased immediately which enables brides to not worry about the sizing of gowns so far in advance when ordering is required.

The majority of these gowns can also be ordered with a minimum lead time of 5/6 months if the wedding is planned well ahead.

The selection below are all examples of gowns that we HAVE  in sizes 16 and above within our salon even though the images may portray a smaller sized model.

Please note that for tighter fitting gowns on the hip line , i.e. a fit and flare gown or fishtail …. an even figure looks best when the bust measurement is equal or similar to the hip and the waist being at least 8 inches smaller.

Otherwise a classic A line shape will suit anyone with a larger hip measurement and a smaller bust.

A corset back will pull your curves into a great shape and also enhance greatly your waistline.

Basically the fuller the skirt the smaller a waist will look and you can select from plain or ruched up skirts, with net or without.

My personal favourites are EMMA and EILEEN by MAGGIE SOTTERO and 77966 by EDDY K and 867 and 801 by ALFRED ANGELO, BELLE by DISNEY, 2058 by BENJAMIN ROBERTS..
