PLUS SIZE BRIDESMAID SHOPPING IN LONDON

Did you know that at Revival we stock from a UK 6 up to 24?

At Revival we understand that finding bridesmaids dresses (especially if you have many) can be a nightmare if you want them all looking consistent. Especially if you also want them in dresses that are special and a bit different!

As we know, people come in all different shapes and sizes. Finding something to not only suit everyone, but that everyone is also happy wearing can be difficult. Plus size bridesmaid dresses can often just be a smaller size 'scaled up'- and we know that frequently that approach just doesn't work, particularly for ladies who aren't blessed with height the way they are with curves.

 

This gorgeous easy to wear 40s Style Dress goes up to a 24 and we restock it regularly as you can see here.

If you're doing plus size bridesmaid shopping in London you should definitely pay us a visit. Having a boutique between Tottenham Court Rd and Goodge Street means that we are easy to reach! 

Bengaline is a fabric that is used a lot by one of the brands we stock and we often refer to it as a miracle fabric. Why? Because whilst it holds the skin, it also helps shape a figure out and holds everything in place – kind of like shapewear does. This means that is it very good at flattering people of all different sizes.

We do the Billion Dollar Baby up to a size 20.

The way a lot of our dresses are designed means that there is extra fabric ruched in those ‘problem’ areas most of us which many of us would refer to. This again means that the dresses are a lot more flattering than most others in such a clingy fabric. It allows you space where you need it, but also if you don’t need it it’s just extra detailing. 

The Celebrity dress is a fantastic option with its smoothing front panel with ruching at the sides.

This means that if you are determined to have all your ladies in the same dress, your size 8 bridesmaid can wear the same dress as your size 18 bridesmaid. (And if that doesn't work, we frequently have the same fabric colour in a different shape so you can at least match that way.)

What about a gorgeous A-line dress like this 1940s dress? Sizes go up to a 24!

Not every plus size bridesmaid wants to wear a pencil or wiggle shape, so that's why we also have a range of A-line and full skirts.

We’re very passionate about body positivity in store and we like to think we cater for almost anyone regardless of body shape or height. We have a number of different colours, patterns, styles, lengths and designs we have means that most people visit us and find something that they fall in love with. Not only that, we also know an excellent local seamstress who can help you achieve the perfect fit for your dream bridesmaid dress.
