Pssssst, wedding dress industry! Did you know the average American woman wears a size 14? I'm not sure if y'all got the memo, since most designers showcase wedding dresses on models who are size invisible.

Of course there are wedding-y brands and stores that carry bigger sizes (Alfred Angelo, David's Bridal, and Watters, off the top of my head) but why aren't more people jumping through hoops to attract plus-size customers? I mean EVERY bride needs a wedding dress (or wedding suit or romper or whatever) so why not try to sell a bride who much of the industry is ignoring?

I'll step off my soapbox now and introduce you to a retailer that is: Sonsi has an online Bridal Boutique that sells plus-size wedding dresses—AND showcases the dresses on models with curves. Here are three of my faves from the boutique:

Netting V-neck Wedding Gown, $259.

I'm not crazy about the belt-y part on No. 3, but since the dress is just $259, you could buy a fantastic sash to tie over it.

I like wedding dress # 2.  Like the lace overlay.
