Curvy brides break stereotypes to look slim on wedding day



Why all the men want their ladies to look slim on their wedding day? Most of the South Asian women are pressured to lose weight for their weddings. To overcome this stereotype, wedding preparation portico Wed Me Good congregated with some curvy brides to smash the thought to be a plus-sized bride.

The company took brides out for a day to treat at a designer store to provide them a fun-filled bridal photo shoot. There accrued a problem that most of the designer stores just hold an average size which is not fitted to curvaceous girls.


Then Wed Me Good worked together with Stage3, which is an online high-fashion styling and rental podium and presented to adjust designer dresses for the future brides. They made a movie called Real Brides, Real Curves, where they talk about the put on social and family demands to lose weight prior to their nuptials.  

The video characterizes standard women who are all set to tie the knot. They talk about the body embarrassment women face when their marriage date comes; they also emphasize how it is significant to love your body.

One lady indicates that when a woman is going to get married, her body is not her own, “It’s always judged, sexualized, objectified.”


Further states that “The girl has to be perfect. The boy can be any size, any complexion, anything.”

The ladies who are going to be future brides also talk about the problems of walking into a store and locating outfits of their size. They add that “Designers don’t design for me and some of the people who have been working in the stores have been open enough to tell me.”

An attractive lady states laughingly that “I do not promote obesity in any way. One should be fit, but I eat everything,”

Further continues that “I’m a curvy woman and it is who I am. It’s part of me and its part of what makes me, me. So, I’m going to own it at my wedding day and I hope others do too.”

When brides are donned and prepared for their photo shoot, each one of them provides their own piece of advice to further brides of all size who are setting up for their imminent nuptials.
