Recently I attended the new store opening of Curvy Chic Bridal and wow….. it really was pretty epic.
Set in the Old Ulster Bank Buildings located on the Holywood Road, the new luxurious boutique has a private bridal suite set in the original bank vault, two large changing rooms for Mothers of the Bride/Groom and Bridesmaids and the largest collection of plus size gowns in the UK and Ireland some of which are exclusive to Curvy Chic Bridal!
Curvy Chic also has a massive selection of stunning bridesmaid dresses from sizes 6 – 44 and a growing collection of occasion wear for formals and wedding guests.
The boutique is owned by the stunning Rebecca Bryson pictured above who is a leading bridal make-up artist and who launched Curvy Chic Bridal in 2016 after working with too many brides that were disappointed by the limited choice of wedding dresses for their size.
Rebecca tells us “I started Curvy Chic Bridal in 2016 with £3,000 savings and worked from home for the first three years. I quickly learned that we needed to find curve specific dresses, not dresses just made bigger, which I believe is the unique offering of our collections. We’ve worked so hard to offer Northern Ireland’s largest section of plus size gowns and the business has gone from strength to strength”.
I think you will agree from the photos above and below Rebecca has created something absolutely amazing and can bring every brides dream to reality regardless of size. Just some of the incredible brands Curvy Chic offer are from Studio Levana which is exclusive in NI/Ireland and the largest collection in the UK. Michelle Bridal also exclusive in NI/Ireland, Roz La Kelvin another exclusive in UK and Ireland, Pronovias White once again exclusive in NI, Venus Bridal (Woman), White Rose – Graceful, Lois Wild and Millie Grace.
Curvy Chic stocks Mother of the Bride/Groom and Bridesmaid from Penguin Designs, Curvy Chic Designs, Angel B bridesmaids, Finesse, Kristen Krig and Tia.
Shoes, accessories and veils are stocked from Miss Clemmie Artisan Accessories, Twilight Designs, En Vogue Accessories, Richard Designs, Perfect Bridal Co., Paradox London Shoes and Trainloop.
A massive thank you to Rebecca and the Curvy Chic team for inviting us along to their opening and I wish you all the greatest success in your new store.
To all the gorgeous brides who are on their search for the perfect wedding dress I cannot recommend Curvy Chic Bridal highly enough, get in touch with them to arrange an appointment or pop down to their stunning store to have a browse around, you won’t be disappointed.
