Whoever thumbs down this video... you better not comment nothing nasty. I will find you a shove my foot up your boney @**. Its already bad enough curvy people get talked down just going clothes shopping, but the fact you disgracing them finding a wedding dress is straight up wrong. I want to see how you feel being curvy trying to be a curvy girl that first didn't think they would get married, and second wedding dress shopping trying to find the right size.

Sometimes I feel so sad living in the UK.. as a bride to be myself the dresses so far have been very limited in quantity and style! Wish you could open a store in the UK before July 2019 so I can get my dress!!

It was so hard for me when I got married so many years ago, it was not easy and I think you two are doing a wonderful service to us curvy gals. Good luck and best wishes for you both.

I think my country could have more bridal boutiques like yours. I'm considered a plus size in my country and my wedding gown shopping had been horrifying. Most shops would take a look at me at the door and say they have nothing for me and at one shop, the consultant told me to go on a diet and come back in 6 months. Others will put me voluminous gowns with tight bodice and tell me the gown fits cos it s a corset back. Being short I would drown in all layers at the bottom and top would be too small. Being a plus size is hard enough and when people do that, it can really break your spirit.
Omg this is the Kind of Dress Shop i need i cant wait to open a Plus size Bridal shop

to me it is so sad to see thin models in full-figured clothing magazines.i pray that full-figured women can see for themselves how pretty they are modeling their own clothing.
TheResearcher03 (4 years ago)
it is really nice to see someone placing full figure women in positive light. to me they are the most beautifull women in the world i should know i'm happily to one she's a nice size  16-18 .
