Plus Size Models on Bridal Runways

self love handbook for plus size brides, self love for plus size brides

When I see beautiful plus size models on fashion runways it makes me so happy but when I see plus size models on BRIDAL runways it makes my heart literally skip a beat.  This is something that is a true validation to what we here at Pretty Pear Bride are trying to do, bring bridal inspiration to plus size brides.  And when bridal companies follow it shows that we are making a difference.

I was elated when I got the first tweets verifying that YES, there were plus size models during NYC Bridal Fashion Week 2012. {Yes, I only got phone pics because I wasn’t there but best believe I will be there for the next one, mark my words!}  And it was non other than Alfred Angelo.

Check out some of their Fall 2012 Bridal and Bridesmaids fashions using plus size models

Alfred Angelo has really stepped up and made it known that they are offering gorgeous dresses for the full figured bride.  They have shown that they are interested and excited in catering to plus size brides by carrying plus size sample sizes in their salons.

I have experienced this first hand because when I walked into an Alfred Angelo in Richmond,Va and there was a size 20 right on the rake for me I was floored.  And it was one of their latest styles, in season and not outdated.  And honestly there were several larger sizes available too.  So kudos to Alfred Angelo for stepping up to help the Plus Size Brides. Be on  the look out for the Fall 2012 fashions in the fall!
