Reader Request - Dressing for a Wedding

Greetings Fashion Divas,

I have a reader request to share with you all from Keidra:


I'm attending a friend's wedding in a couple of months and I'm looking for affordable dresses. I'm curvy so I need styles and sizes that will flatter a larger frame. Thanks for your help!


Okay great, I was wondering when I was going to get some dress requests from somebody for a wedding ;-) I've included a couple styles below that I'll talk you through.

Rosette Sweetheart Dress

I love the figure flattering shape of this dress. It has an A-line skirt which complements all shapes (i.e. pear, apple, etc.). It's also super cute and very affordable. The color contrast is eye catching and if you're top heavy, the eye will be drawn to the bright pink skirt.

Side Cascade Ruffle


I love the simplicity of this design. Contrary to the look, the jersey material of this dress is very forgiving. I like the rouching at the waist. This feature helps mask a troublesome middle. Play it up with a nice statement necklace and patterned heels.

Becca Assymetric Dress


I know this dress is a little more pricey but I don't know what your max is and I think it's an unique style and a pretty timeless design. I love the gathering at the hip and middle as well.

ASOS Curve Crossover Dress


If this is a daytime wedding, the color and cut of this dress would work perfectly for the event. It's relaxing and stylish and would look so fab accessorized with a killer pair of strappy heels or pumps, a cuff, and big earrings.

Below I've scouted several more options from you to choose from. You can also go the websites and look for more items if you want, but I think this selection will either generate one that you really like, or at least set you on a path to find the one that you're going to rock to your friend's wedding.

Happy Shopping!!!
