Plus Size Wedding Gown

Things got topsy-turvy when I started designing the Spring 2014 wedding gown Signature Collection  for Sydney’s Closet.  Classic bridal collections clearly inspired me. But I wanted very much to adapt the designs for today’s contemporary  So fabrics took a twist and turn to add interest and style.  Backs went lower.  Necklines went higher.  Sleeves got longer. All in all, styles got ruffled up for a very sophisticated modern vibe.

Here’s the top trends you’ll see brides wearing  when they come down the aisle in 2014:

  1. Peplum add a soft and oh-feminine layer below the waist.
  2. Covered buttons for a ultra elegant detail on the back of the dress.
  3. Tiers form triangles for a fresh, soft look on skirts.
  4. Lace, obsessed with it! Just can’t get enough. Nothing is more timeless, pretty and feminine!
  5. Curve hugging mermaid and fit and flair silhouettes that show off a bride’s curves.  Super sexy!
  6. Bows all the rage, dramatic and over sized. Not your little girl version but tied up grand for a day as big as your wedding.
  7. Straps that sparkle with crystals and beaded sequins accent the shoulder and neckline.
  8. Sheer long sleeves look pretty but aren’t heavy or hot.  Tasteful and ideal if you’re modest.
  9. Princess for day wearing a ball gown for a fairy tale look to a storybook wedding.
  10. Hue cue:  brides will “I do” to diamond white and ivory over stark white.




Dress designer Phyllis Brasch Librach, a former journalist, traded deadlines for hemlines to launch Sydney's Closet after she failed to find a plus size Prom dress that flattered her curvy teen-age daughter. Today Sydney's Closet is the leading fashion force in creating plus size special occasion dresses for Prom, Wedding, Formal and Cocktail. And her daughter just got married!
