{Curvy News} “Curvy Brides” Finally Get Their Own Show On TLC

Yep you heard me right and I am official overjoyed and beyond excited to report that we as plus size and curvy brides are finally getting some representation on TV.  “Curvy Brides” is set to premiere on TLC during the coveted “Friday Bride Day” at 10pm on August 1, 2014.

“Curvy Brides” showcases the plus-size bridal salon Curvaceous Couture, located in Maryland. Owned and operated by sisters Yukia and Yuneisia, “Curvy Brides” demonstrates that there’s a dream dress out there for every woman, no matter her size. Yukia herself struggled to find a designer wedding gown to suit her curves, and that struggle inspired her to help other women get outfitted for their special day. The sisters started out running a business in their father’s basement, and now they’re running a boutique with gowns for plus-size women with every taste and style. {via TLC}

It’s such an inspiration to see a show that will finally highlight and showcase plus size brides and their wedding gowns.  And show that there are options out there for us, and not just a few but hundreds, that can actually fill up a whole bridal salon.
