Belfast has just welcomed its first exclusive designer bridal retailer that caters exclusively for plus size brides.
The amazing new business, Curvy Chic Bridal, was created with the belief that every woman should feel extra special on her big day, and that shopping for her perfect dress should be a joyful occasion.
The innovative new business is the latest project of Rebecca Bryson, who hails from East Belfast and is an established makeup artist with 11 year’s experience in the bridal industry.
Rebecca developed the idea after becoming disheartened by the experiences of her fuller figured clients, who often found choosing their dream dress stressful, and not the exciting, memorable event it should be.
“After 11 years working in the bridal industry, and hearing horror stories from my curvier clients who just couldn’t find their dream dress in their size, I noticed that no Northern Irish retailer catered specifically to the fuller figure.
“Being plus size myself, I visited some bridal shops as part of my research and couldn’t find a single dress that fitted me as stores only carried one or two plus size dresses in small sizes.
“I wanted to create an enjoyable environment for plus size brides to choose their dream dress, and with the support of my wonderful family and partner Colum, Curvy Chic Bridal was born!”
Curvy Chic Bridal is offers an exciting new option for plus size brides across Ireland, specializing in sizes from 16 – 44.
“We’re committed to celebrating curves and eliminating the negativity often encountered by plus size brides by offering stylish bridal wear at affordable price points,” explains Rebecca.
Dresses at Curvy Chic Bridal are all priced between £399-£1,300 with the most popular styles between £500 and £1,000.
