Custom made plus-size bridal gown that flatters your body shape and matches your personality.
d'Italia understands that it is impossible to find ready-made wedding dresses for larger sizes, because virtually no bridal boutiques cater for the larger, more voluptuous brides. They may say that they will make a gown in a larger size, however getting the perfect fit in all the right places is so technically difficult that most boutiques shy away from it.
There is nothing more flattering than a gown custom-made to fit properly around important bits, so that there is no unflattering pulling, sagging or extra fabric where it shouldn't be, nor any unsightly bulges. Custom-making is the ONLY way to ensure that a gown fits an individual perfectly, which is the most flattering factor overall.
d'Italia specialises in styling, designing and creating beautiful wedding gowns for plus-sized brides so that they look and feel classy, elegant, comfortable and confident. The staff at d'Italia have many years' experience with regards to the right combination and selection of fabrics and styles to most flatter the fuller figure, which is also dependent upon the customer's height, personality and overall colouring.
d'Italia's bridal couturiers are part of the team not only because they are experts, but because they have also proven themselves to be reliable, responsible, personable and able to duplicate exactly what their clientele need and want. This includes being able to perfectly fit plus-sizes, which is technically a special art in itself.
The most important – yet invisible – aspect to a perfect wedding gown is the hidden corsetry inside the bodice. Bought gowns will NEVER fit even standard sized brides, let alone larger sizes. This is because everybody is unique. d'Italia's bridal couturiers are expert at building customised corsetry from scratch to perfectly fit the customer every single millimetre – and also to accentuate and shape all the parts of the gown around the bodice area that the bride expresses a desire for. This is a vital factor with regards to the final look of the gown and the bride, because a perfectly made and fitted corset will determine how the gown looks and sits on the bride's body – and importantly, the way the corsetry is only partially attached to the inside of the gown ensures that there is no bulging or unsightly overhang around the underarms and upper back-line of the gown...
d'Italia has a proven excellent reputation. This is invaluable, as the evidence speaks for itself - a large number of d'Italia's clientele are plus-size ladies who return repeatedly season after season, knowing that they will be serviced professionally and will get a wardrobe that they feel really comfortable and confident wearing, and will look their absolute best no matter what the occasion. And when the occasion calls for a bridal gown, d'Italia takes this responsibility most seriously.
