Real brides come in all shapes and sizes. Answering the call for more full-figured wedding gown options is Della Curva, a new plus-size boutique from the bride-approved pros of Lili Bridals.
Dedicated to dressing brides-to-be sporting sizes 16 to 30, the new Tarzana shop boasts top-notch designers like Allure Bridals, Sophia Tolli, Casablanca and more. In addition to stocking veils, jewelry and other bridal accessories by Lori London and more, the salon also offers pro bridal stylists and a private dressing area. As the store puts it, "No more trying to squeeze into a size six [...] plus-sized brides will have an entire bridal salon, its inventory and its staff completely dedicated to helping them find the dress of their dreams."
