Not All Plus-Size Brides Want Poofy Wedding Gowns

While the movement celebrating body diversity continues to grow, retail offerings still have a little catching up to do. One market where that’s especially true is bridal. A quick Google search will show you mostly one silhouette: super poofy, as if bridal designers assume a full-figured woman wouldn’t want to show off her figure. Today, Stone Fox Bride changes that.

THE LUCINDA, $4,800

The boho-chic brand has teamed up with Eloquii to offer a capsule collection of wedding dresses in sizes 16 through 24, including five styles from Stone Fox Bride’s main collection. Prices range from $4,350 to $6,800 and include a variety of styles: a strapless peplum tea-length dress, an empire waist wrap dress, a silk slip dress, a bell-sleeve dress (which you might remember was worn by Marnie for her wedding in Girls), and a even a rose-colored chiffon one. Not a gigantic tulle skirt in sight.

THE MILLY, $4,350

“It’s exciting to bring the plus-sized bride options,” Jodi Arnold, Eloquii creative director, tells ELLE.com. “There are structured and ‘typical’ wedding dresses available, but for someone who does not want something so fussy, she does not have options. We founded Eloquii with the idea that fashion doesn’t stop at a size 12. As a brand we are fashion first and believe every woman should have access to great style, trend options, and inspiration. This, of course, includes her wedding day.”

In addition to this collection, Stone Fox Bride creative director Molly Guy curated a selection of special-occasion dresses for wedding season on Eloquii.
