    53: Understanding the Wedding Landscape for a Curvy Woman: Part 1

    53: Understanding the Wedding Landscape for a Curvy Woman: Part 1

    As a curvy woman myself, I know and understand the unique challenges when shopping for a wedding dress. This topic is so near and dear to my heart that today’s show is the first in a multi-part series covering the issues that curvy brides face. Join me as we lay the foundation in understanding the wedding landscape for a curvy woman.
    Show Highlights:
    Why helping curvy brides has been some of my most satisfying work Our focus today is on designer wedding dresses for curvy women--not those found at lower price points What curvy women need to know: Bridal sizing runs up to two sizes small (be prepared to be shocked!) Most boutiques carry only one of each dress sample, usually in size 8 (which is really a size 4!) Trunk show dresses are even smaller than normal because they were made for a model to wear (curvy women should avoid trunk shows altogether!) You’ll be asked to “envision” what the dress in your size will look like on you (this is difficult to do when you may not be able to zip up the dress!)

Fabulous Pod!

Julie Sabatino’s advice on “all things weddings” is always “spot-on.” Although I rarely go dress shopping, Julie’s delivery is so breezy and charming, that I invariably find myself smiling until the end of each episode. Fantastic!
