Choosing The Right Dress
As a team of women that design for women of all body shapes, sizes and cultures, we understand how hard it can be to choose THE GOWN! We find some of our brides choose one gown instantly and need no further help, and others are torn between 3 or more styles. We are here to guide you as much as you need- send us a picture, tell us your concerns, let us help you.
Our gowns are MADE to embrace your natural beauty, whether you are petite, athletic or curvy. Our mission is to make you feel beautiful. The stretch elements in our gowns allow them to hug you in all the right places- depending on what feature you are wanting to highlight or hide.
Our collections are designed and handmade in our studio and delivered worldwide; we speak to bride-to-be’s all over the world and help them with their decision process everyday all day. Your gown will be made to your size, proportions and height.
And here are some common questions we get asked that may help you right here, right now…
Pregnant Brides….we love dressing our glowing pregnant brides on their special day. The best dress choice will vary depending on how big your baby bump is. If you have a smaller bump and wish to wear a body-hugging dress made from stretch French lace then go for Mia, Lottie, Alexandra, Verdelle, Francis or Lottie. Arlo can also cater to a smaller bump. For larger bumps or for gowns that do not fit skin tight go for Milan or Colette- they are perfect for pregnancy.
Large Bust Size….these days we are lucky that there are so many options for bras and adhesive cups that offer invisible support. This means most gowns can work with a larger bust and our stylists can help you find the perfect bra. For larger bust sizes that would like more support built in to the dress or the ability to wear a traditional bra go for Milan, Alexandra, Florence, Nia, Blake, Tyne, Cyd, Francis, Kiki, Samba, Josee, Yeo, Madeline, Clare, Sally, Loren, Colette, Sia, Sofia, Gia and Arlo.
Needing To Cover-Up…..easy! Add our Bo throw, Roberta Cape, Jac Robe and Mason Top. And of course, we love seeing our brides wear a leather jacket, chic blazer, fur or coat for the cooler winter weddings. Do it your way!
Out of Your Comfort Zone Choosing a Gown?…Go for the options of Clare, Loren, Tara, Sofia, Arlo, Cedar, Blake, Inca, Harriet, Valentina and Vida. However, all of our gowns are made to make you feel absolutely beautiful and comfortable.
