Why you shouldn’t buy a plus size wedding dress online.
Maybe you’ve had your perfect wedding dress pictured in your mind since you were a little girl. Or maybe you have no idea where to start or what you might want. Either way you are going to be searching for ‘the one’. As many of us do now, you might begin your search online. Clicking through hundreds upon hundreds of images. Searching for the perfect dress that will make you feel like the bride you want to be. Here our our reason why you shouldn’t buy a plus size wedding dress online.
During this search we are all tempted by great images of amazing dresses. We wonder how we might look in that daring neckline or fairytale princess gown. Before you go the easy route and click-click-purchase, there are things you should consider first.
Buying a wedding dress online steals those amazing shopping moments with loved ones. And tears away those funny stories of that unfortunate dress you tried on, but it leaves too much to chance. Web sites use flashy techniques and seemingly low prices to pull you in and convince you you’ll get the gown of your dreams for the price of your dreams. That is rarely the case. I’m not just talking about the cheap Ebay on line shops. Don’t buy any wedding dress on line even a designer dress.
You need to feel the fabric, see the delicate beading up close. Watch how the lighting changes the colours of the gown. Chat to consultants, ask opinions and eventually have that beautiful moment when you try on ‘the dress’ and you just know it’s the one you are going to wear on your wedding day.
Try the wedding dress of your dreams on first.
Many international stores boast high-fashion images and fantastic discounts but deliver anything but. Not only are these fashion images stolen from actual labels. They are manipulated and distorted beyond all forms of reality. The designs in these images are then duplicated using lesser quality fabrics in unpredictable and unrealistic sizing and distributed to unsuspecting soon-to-be brides. Not to mention every one has different body proportions. So even if the dress is beautifully made it will still need many alterations you may not have expected. One of the reasons why you shouldn’t buy a plus size wedding dress online.
So sure, look online, flip through the pages of bridal magazines and get to know your options. Then before you click away, head in to you local bridal store even better one that stocks us plus size perfection. Gaze over the gowns, feel the fabrics, try on the sizes and know what you’re buying.
