We offer a large range of gowns to suit all shapes, sizes and budgets.
I am thrilled that I have been able to open my specialist plus size boutique .
My view is that this time should be a magical experience and not something to be nervous and apprehensive about.
As a plus size bride myself, my search for my perfect dress was a massive struggle.
After numerous online orders and returns, I eventually settled for something that really wasn’t me.
I felt compelled to help fellow curvy brides by opening my own specialist plus size boutique, giving them a much more fun, relaxed and enjoyable experience.
