"Do you have any plus size modest wedding gowns?"  "And any with sleeves"?, Many brides call us, wondering if we have anything they can try and see what the dress actually look like on. In most cases, our answer is "YES", we have Plus Size! Come to A Closet Full of Dresses - we can help with modest wedding dresses whatever size works best for you!

First of all, what's the definition of "Plus Size" wedding dresses? The answer varies and depends on whether it's a bride asking, or what the bridal industry thinks. For most brides who call our store they want to know if we have any modest wedding dresses size 18 or over they can see and come try on. For many bridal shops in our industry, sizes 12 and up are considered Plus Size!

Wow! We've had so many gorgeous brides looking for modest wedding dresses with sleeves who've found their dream wedding dress in sizes 12 and up. I don't think they would consider themselves plus size at all. And we don't want to categorize anyone. But since we do get those questions, here is an explanation.

Browse the Allure Bridals Modest Collection of modest bridal gowns with sleeves - they is so Elegant! AND we have plus size dresses in our inventory!

We've seen some bridal boutiques where the biggest sample dress is size 8. Hard to imagine what that dress might look like on a plus size bride, especially with sleeves involved.

That's what's so amazing about our modest bridal customers - it doesn't matter what size they are, each bride arrives at our store with mothers, sisters and bridesmaids looking forward to the perfect bridal shopping experience. And we are so happy to do everything we can to enable them to have a wonderful time finding that elegant dress that is perfect for them! For us, that experience means they can have dresses to try on to imagine their look on that most important wedding day! So, we have samples up to size 24, and have special ordered up to size 30 when needed (if engagement time allows).

"Curvy" is another term used for Plus Size Brides. Maybe you've heard that as you look at dresses with sleeves.  But once you get to A Closet Full of Dresses, we want you to feel right at home and not worry about how many "curves" you have or even what size you are. Just let our experienced bridal consultants listen to your vision of what you want in a wedding dress and they will pick the dress that will look best on you. We want you to feel comfortable - and even have a blast trying on as many styles as you like!  You'll love your dress and have such a wonderful time finding it!

We've helped many plus size brides find their dream dress from Mon Cheri and we have dresses of all sizes for you to see!

Each Spring and Fall our modest wedding dress designers show us their new collections of gowns, and we must decide which styles, and how many sizes of each we should bring into A Closet Full of Dresses. We used to think "This style would appeal more to size 2 brides, and this other style might be more what a size 22 bride would like".

But over the seasons we've discovered that a fitted design will appeal to a plus size bride as much as it will to a size 2 or 4 size girl. Some "curvy" brides may want to celebrate those curves! So we try to have samples of several sizes per each dress style.

For brides who feel they might be over size 24, we happily refer them to Strut Bridal who specialize in only Plus Size brides. They are so awesome over at Strut, and the brides we send to Strut really love their experience.

Hope this helps the moms and brides wondering about the inventory we have at A Closet Full of Dresses. Our desire is to help all brides of all sizes find a dress they will love!
