As I’ve mentioned before, when I got married five years ago, I got the dress I wore from Simply Be. It wasn’t a wedding dress, but it sang to me – so it became the dress.
I struggled to find a dress – I didn’t want the common sleeveless white puffy gown. I wanted something a little bit different but for a plus size bride that was really really hard. My budget was tiny (£100 max) so I was really limited. But Simply Be came good, and I managed to get my dress and jacket within budget.
Imagine my joy (and slight annoyance) when I noticed yesterday that Simply Be had launched its bridal range! Its small – only four dresses but those dresses are GORGEOUS! I would have loved to have this choice five years ago! All of the dresses are reasonable – between £90 and £100 and are different enough to stand out. Wonderful. Below are my two favourites:
Also, even though this isn’t in the bridal range, if you wanted a more 50’s-esq shorted dress, this one by Joanna Hope would look beautiful:
Well done Simply Be, once again you are doing what no other plus size retailer is doing and actually giving us what we want and what we need.
