We've got a great new bridal store to tell you all about!
CurvyGirls Bridal just opened their flagship store in February in Fairfax. We recently went to the store while dress shopping with a friend and had the pleasure of meeting the owners and learning more about their philosophy.
Kim, Senior Fashion Consultant and Ruth, Owner
The CurvyGirls experience is a unique one. They say they had the idea to start their store after noticing "a difference not only in the choices of style and selection of gowns that curvy brides were offered in bridal shops in our area, but also the lack of customer service that all brides, regardless of size, were forced to endure."
Their gowns are front and center, for brides to see and touch. Their goal is "for all brides to experience the same excitement and joy of shopping for their wedding gown."
Their beautiful and sophisticated shop features a highly-personalized shopping experience with gowns by Manuel Mota, La Sposa, Pronovias, Allure and Sophia Tolli. They have a wide range of prices, from $600-8,000. (And they also sell accessories, bridesmaid dresses, tuxedos and formal wear!)
They sell gowns in all sizes, but specialize in gowns in sizes 12-32. Their motto is "you describe it and we'll design it" and they offer in-house customizations and alterations.
CurvyGirls Bridal is located at:
3903-M Ridge Road, Fairfax, VA 22033 (Appointments strongly encouraged)
