Sourcing and Selecting Top Plus Size Dress Makers

Information on finding great plus size formal, wedding, and prom dress makers in Australia and the United States


  1. There has been a huge upsurge in people going online to buy clothing, whether it is designer jeans, sportswear or designer dresses but there are some items of clothing that you really should not risk buying online, and clothing for a special occasion comes into that category. Buying a pair of jeans from your favourite brand is not a big deal but when you are looking to spend a lot of money on a beautiful gown, particularly for your wedding, you should consider going to a plus size dress dressmaker to have it tailor made. Naturally, an experienced dressmaker can alter a badly fitting wedding dress that has been bought online, and they frequently do this, but you will have a lot more satisfaction and be a lot happier if you have your dress made by a professional tailor.

  2. When buying your plus size wedding dress or a ball gown online there is just so much that can potentially go wrong. For a start there is a very real chance that the dress will not fit you properly, so you will need to have it altered. Then there is the possibility that the fabric is cheap and nasty and nothing like what it looked like in the photograph. Keeping in mind that this is one of the most important occasions in your life, it is a good idea to hunt down a professional dressmaker.

  3. Using a professional tailoring service means that your dress will be tailored and fitted perfectly to your body shape so that on your special day, you will feel comfortable and confident in your beautifully tailored gown. When selecting your dressmaker, make sure you choose someone who has been around for a long time and has an impeccable reputation and who will listen to your needs and requirements. You may have seen the plus size dress of your dreams in a wedding or fashion magazine which you can take along to your tailor and have them make up the dress in the photograph for you. A professional dressmaker will have swatches of beautiful fabrics at her disposal for you to choose from and will give you timely advice on what is going to look good on the day.

  4. A good tailoring service will have a bridal consultant who will be able to assist you in designing and creating an outfit that suits you and your body shape, while remaining true to the ideas in the photograph. A good tailor will always keep up with all the leading trends in design and fabrics and you will be sure to finish up with a beautifully fitted gown.
