Plus size bridesmaid dresses?

Dadou, on May 1, 2018 at 13:20 Posted in Quebec
Hi all,

I’m in the Montreal area, getting married in September.

I’m currently looking at bridesmaid dresses.

2 of my 3 bridesmaids are plus sizes (one around16-18, the other is a 20) and we are having difficulty finding dresses for their sizes.

I went on St-Hubert and the choice was pretty limited for them, which I found unfortunate.

Would anyone have any stores to suggest that we could try?

I really want them to feel confortable and happy in their dress.
I did consider a seamstress but unfortunately, I don’t know any.

Thanks WW community!

    I totally understand. Have you had a chance to look through the bridal salons in Montreal? We have several listed on WeddingWire, I hope one will have a great dress for your bridesmaid!

    I didn’t really see what she had in that section but I know my fiancé’s cousin got her prom dress there and it was an amazing experience and she has different sizes. Which she can then order if you want in another style or colour. She’s extremely friendly and won’t let your bridal party purchase something that isn’t flattering for them.

    When i went for my dress she was telling me she had to order a size 33 sample dress to cater to some of her brides.
    I’m honestly impressed with her and her store. Nothing but great things lol

    Hello Hello Montrealer :-)


    Yes, but they don't have a huge selection for plus sizes at 1861...Unfortunately...


    Thank you for your input Jen!

    David's Bridal is good, but my bridesmaid is not comfortable purchasing online as she wants to try it on, and Ottawa is a 2 hours drive from Montreal...not that far, but definite needs more arrangement to go there.

    Either an infinity dress or a chiffon dress. Would you have any other suggestion?


    Anyhow, thank you Joey for your input!

    I know it’s really far. But check Mariclod in st Lin. The service is impeccable and she caters to all sizes both bridal and bridesmaid and whatever you need Smiley smile

    I'd check David's Bridal, and also some department stores. What sort of dress style are you looking for?

    Hello fellow montrealer!! Have you tried boutique 1861? Unfortunately I find plus size dresses are hard to find here. I went to David's bridal in Ottawa to purchase the bridesmaid dresses for my girls. Large selection and huge range of sizes.

    Have you think about Laura Plus ? I have not look at their collection but I went through their petite collection for my sister and if it is as pretty as in the petite you should be able to get a nice choices from their plus line. Hope it helped! Smiley smile
