Beautiful plus-size bride proves a Sabyasachi wedding lehenga is for everybody
It’s increasingly common these days for brides to pose in their stunning designer wedding lehengas — so much so that our eyes sometimes glaze over when we see them in our Instagram feeds. But one bride wore a floral Sabyasachi Mukherjee lehenga that people are noticing — and for all the right reasons.
On Thursday, the ace designer, who famously designed the wedding lehengas for actor Anushka Sharma and many other celeb brides, took to Instagram to share newly-married Dolly Menghani’s big day look. And if your’re a bride-to-be with curves, you’ll love this one.
Here’s the truth: Not every bride-to-be can be — or even aspires to be — a size 0 on her wedding day. But for those of us who celebrate (and flaunt!) our gorgeous real-girl curves, buying a designer wedding lehenga can be a little complicated. To the rescue: Dolly’s absolutely gorgeous curve-friendly lehenga that not only fits her body beautifully, but also flatters and enhances her best assets.
If you’re feeling a floral print, this of-the-moment white, blush, and red Sabyasachi look is a winner for those with a penchant for modern blooms. It’s a feminine, fun way to wear a print if ornate, all-over embellised lehengas aren’t your thing.
Not surprisingly, the photos of Dolly’s Sabyasachi look, clicked by Hong Kong-based Ali G Studios, quickly garnered over 1,000 comments and some three lakh-plus ‘likes’ on Instagram, resonating with users because of its body positive message, as well as the tremendous amount of love captured in the stills.
Many hoped this will inspire brides to believe that who they are and what they look like is enough to be truly happy and feel beautiful on their big day.
“I am so glad that finally a designer has dressed up a plus size bride… One always comes across these designers making dresses for women with the tiniest waists ever…. This bride is so beautiful,” commented on saloni_vimal on a photo,
