Shopping for a Plus Size Wedding Dress at La Jeune Mariee

by LJM in


Over the years, as a size-inclusive bridal boutique, La Jeune Mariee has made a concentrated effort to build upon our plus size bridal collection and choose popular styles from our designers that can be special ordered in sizes 18W and above.

Size-inclusivity has historically been a challenge for the bridal industry. In order for boutiques to get their samples quickly and to cater to the majority, they are typically ordered in sizes 12 – 14, leaving out petite and plus size brides. This has improved over time with a societal shift towards broader representation in the fashion industry, and wedding dress shopping as a plus size bride has begun to be less of a challenge. We’re here to make sure that every bride that walks through our doors feels comfortable + confident in our selection and has an unforgettable experience!

Our stylists are true stylists, not salespeople. Each stylist is extensively trained on fit, fabrics, silhouettes and each of our designers and truly understands how to style and empower our brides to feel the absolute best on their special day.

Our experienced stylists are the perfect partner for your wedding dress shopping experience, and we have an expansive range of sample sizes. Many designers now have their own lines strictly focusing on plus size wedding dresses, and we are happy to carry Jenny Yoo and Studio Levana, as well as our own curated collections from our other designers. We have a wonderful selection of plus size bridal gowns to try on and will continue to make selections each and every bridal market to continue to expand our offerings.

Studio Levana specializes in plus size bridal gowns. Her gowns are very customizable and designed with a special patented corset that holds in your bust without a bra [no matter your bra size] and emphasizes your waist to enhance your curves.

Jenny Yoo has been a very popular designer over the years, with an unparalleled array of sizes and styles. They’ve found the importance of having a dedicated plus size bridal line, and all of their gowns can be ordered through size 32.

Our plus size collection also features designers such as Blush by Francesca Avila, Calla Blanche, Hayley Paige, Mikaella, Paloma Blanca, Watters, Willowby + Wtoo.

As a plus size bride, we want you to feel confident when you make your appointment with us, so please do reach out with any and all questions. We cannot wait to style you!
