Why the search for a plus-size wedding outfit almost drove me crazy

Plus-size shopping is no longer a real problem. But as a maid of honor for a wedding? The pure horror! The experience report of a plus-size model.

I stand in the locker room and look down at myself. I don't like what I see there. Not at all A knee-length skirt without any contour and a pair of chunky shoes with block heels. Dreadful. As a plus-size girl, why can't I look just as classy and chic as others at weddings ? The search for my wedding outfit in size 48 almost drove me crazy! formal dresses for women


"I just don't look fancy!"

When I imagine myself, it is usually in a size 38. All the clothes that I see and find beautiful, I do not imagine in a large size, but as they hang on the dollIt has always been like this. Although I've always been tall. But of course it doesn't work that way. Pencil skirts and pointed pumps look neither chic nor classy on me, they just look impossible. So far so good. But I still don't see why I have to change to wide Walle-Walle skirts and flat shoes.

It starts with the shoes : I have big legs and big ankles. So actually every shoe looks much too filigree in relation to the leg . Actually, I don't have the option of wearing a coarser shoe as a counterweight to my leg. Chic stiletto heels definitely fall out of the way.

It continues with tight clothes: a body-hugging dress quickly looks overly sexy, especially in plus sizes. Not that I wouldn't like to wear that too. But a wedding is not the right place for me to dress sexy.


"Black stretches - but is out!"

And first the color choice: black is out . Actually my favorite color for any festive occasion. With red lipstick and the right jewelry, black always looks classy. But since weddings are mostly in summer, dark colors like black, dark green and dark blue actually fall out. And let's be honest: black at a wedding is somehow inappropriate. After all, it's not a memorial service!

So let's be clear: Even if I love my pounds and usually never have problems with shopping to find a chic outfit for a wedding in size 48, it almost drove me crazy!

Plus-size dresses are mostly casual and suitable for everyday use or emphasize feminine shapes so much that they are absolutely unsuitable for weddings. No more, dear designers! long sleeve formal dresses

I want light summer dresses that offer support and flatter my figure. And I would like to have chic, light shoes that don't look tiny even on a wide foot and ankle. It hasn't worked out so well this year. But I am very confident that next year I will finally find the perfect wedding outfit in size 48!
