It’s no secret that the fashion industry has struggled with size inclusivity in the past—but lately, more and more brands are re-evaluating what it means to shop in every size.

Some of our favourite designers who have realised the need for curvy wedding dresses include Karen Willis Holmes who have released the Curve collection. The collection celebrates the female form with an exquisite range of plus size wedding gowns that focus on providing an impeccable fit while remaining comfortable, sophisticated and unique.

Halseene, a Canadian designer fully dedicated to curvy brides - Halseene aims to be more than a brand, but also a voice for body positivity and size inclusivity. Their mission is simple: empower all women to feel like they have the options needed in order to be their bold + badass self on their wedding day.

Halseene dub this Julia gown as a showstopper and we couldn't agree more! Her fully structured, strapless sweetheart bodice finishes with not only a back corset tie for extra fit assurance, but draped chiffon sleeves and a lace-only midriff panel. This delicate lace crawls from bodice to bottom, down the hip-hugging skirt to the rounded train for ultra elegance.
