Women classed as being plus-sized should celebrate who they are and not feel under pressure to conform, says the founder of a bridal store specialising in plus-size dresses.
Jane Burbeary set up Celebrating Curves after struggling to find the right wedding dress for herself when she was getting married a few years ago.
She told The Yorkshire Post: “Being a plus-sized woman trying to find a wedding dress is quite difficult.
“Lots of traditional shops will just stock samples in sizes eight and 10 so when I was looking at a size 22 it was quite difficult and the choice was really minimal.”
In the end she settled for a dress that she wouldn’t have had has she been a size eight. This led her to launching Celebrating Curves in April 2016.
The business has its own collection of dresses that are specifically designed for plus-sized women.
Brides-to-be come to the store in Sheffield on an appointment only basis. Ms Burbeary says this works well as many women feel nervous when buying a wedding dress.
Many plus-size brides who come to Celebrating Curves have had a bad experience shopping elsewhere, Ms Burbeary added. Read the full article here on The Yorkshire post here.
