‘Plus-size Only’: Greenslopes Wedding Boutique A First In The City

For the longest time, plus-size women have struggled to find a wedding dress to fit their needs, literally and figuratively. This was enough motivation for Erin McKenna and her team to launch Curve Bridal Boutique, the first plus-size only boutique in Brisbane located at Greenslopes.

At Curve Bridal Boutique, there are no dresses available for women size 6-12. Instead, their dresses come in sizes 16 to 30, in over 100 different styles and colours.

Erin was inspired to open Curve Bridal Boutique when she saw first hand how tough it was for her mum to find a wedding gown. The dilemma, based on what Erin experienced, is that women eventually need to pay a plus-size fee if they want a plus-size gown.

“Our whole purpose is to provide a home for the modern curvaceous bride. We started from humble beginnings but with big dreams for the plus-size and Curvy woman,” Erin shared on her website.

Erin and her team’s effort eventually paid off, with previous clients recommending their wedding boutique online.

“From the moment I walked in they made me feel so comfortable. They knew what would suit my body and skin tone, they knew which curves to hide and which ones to accentuate. They made me feel absolutely beautiful in every dress I tried on,” says Jess, one of Curve Bridal’s previous customers.

Lesley, another bride, complemented Erin and her team for being so professional and welcoming. She said past experiences shopping for a wedding dress has been stressful, but not until she checked out Curve Bridal.

Unlike other boutiques where brides stand side by side on a podium whilst trying their gown for the first time, Curve Bridal has private fitting rooms so brides wouldn’t have to compare themselves against each other. The boutique also designs handmade wedding gowns, for brides who want their custom dream gown as well as formal wear for events.

Curve Bridal is located at 2/371 Logan Rd Greenslopes and is open by appointment only from Thursday to Saturday. You can check out their website to get in touch or follow them on Instagram @curvebridalboutique for updates.
