Curvy Is The New Black

We are so excited to launch Curvy Is The New Black!  This is a time to celebrate your curves. 67% of women in America are plus-size we are the majority ladies! It’s time for us to stand up and take pride in our beauty. I have heard so many stories from plus-size women feeling as if they are “not enough,” not beautiful, or feeling I second best. Ladies, you are far from second best. Pretty Pear Bride & Curvy Unicorn Bridal are here to tell you, you are enough and you are beautiful just the way you are enough. As a plus-size woman, I have felt all of the things – I need to...

Plus-size-wedding-dress

Wedding dress shopping can be oh so stressful – not knowing what to look for and which wedding dress silhouettes are best for your body type. We get it. We know when you are looking at a dress, sometimes you have no idea what they are talking about. The terminology is like, “OMG are they speaking another language?!” And guess what? They are actually speaking another language. I call it the Bridal Dress Language (lol). Do you speak wedding dress language? No worries if you don’t. I didn’t speak it at first either but once you learn it, you will never forget it. Wedding dress shopping is not always as...

Why The World Needs Curvy Unicorn

Curvy Unicorn bridal is a project from the heart. When I sit back and think about the stories we’ve heard from brides who have had such an awful time while dress shopping, it hurts my heart. Buying a wedding dress is one of the most special times in a woman’s life. It is up there with buying your prom dress and picking out the perfect outfit for your baby shower. Most women only do it once and you want it to be special. We found that the women who were trying to find a wedding gown were not having that magical experience – instead they were leaving dress shops in...

Curvy Unlaced: A Note From The Designer

Welcome to Curvy Unlaced by Curvy Unicorn Bridal! I’m Keneshia your Curvy Unicorn bridal designer. Last year we decided to tackle a problem that’s been a problem for way too long, plus size bridal wear. After searching trying to find designers who design specifically for curvy women we found that there were very few that designed for plus size or curvy women. Most just up the size of what they had already designed and that just doesn’t work. Well, that’s all good and fine for some people but we need dresses designed for us. To celebrate all of our curves, accentuate our bodies and smoothes our lines. We want sexy backs, sweetheart necklines...
