Finding perfect plus size bridesmaid dresses to fit and flatter your girls’ curves used to be tough. Now, more and more brands are offering stunning bridesmaids dresses in a mix of sizes, heights and body types, so you’re guaranteed to find a dress that makes you feel confident and look gorgeous.

Don’t despair if you have a whole range of body types and sizes among your bridesmaids. If you’d like your bridesmaids to all dress in the same design, shops like ASOS, Boohoo and Quiz are brilliant at offering their dresses in petite, tall and curvy options.

Alternatively, a big bridesmaid trend is to have mismatched bridesmaid dresses: you choose a set style or colour palette but each bridesmaid can pick a dress unique to her.

Whether you are just starting to search for bridesmaid dresses for your wedding or are a bridesmaid yourself, take a look at our edit of the best plus size bridesmaid dresses. Now designers have finally got the message that shopping doesn’t stop at size 16, there’s heaps of incredible options! Don’t blame us if you find it hard to choose between them…
