Have we bored you yet with Show Me Your Mumu? Wait, don’t answer, because we’re going to keep singing their praises till the cows come home (how old am I to use that phrase?!)!! The brand behind some of the cutest, most fun tops, bathing suits, pjs and dresses for women OF ALL SIZES, just dropped their Spring Bridal Collection. And guess what? It comes complete with extended sizing for bridesmaids dresses. Yup, they’ll now be offering their best-selling bridesmaid styles in 1X, 2X, and 3X, and these gorgeous gowns are shoppable RN! Go get ‘em, girls, go get ‘em. 👉 Plus size bridesmaid styles that we alwayssss knew we needed.
Let’s be real for a second: as much as the bride world has turned a corner with an exceptionally-chic offering of options for curvy girls ((and we’re forever grateful, of course)), the bridesmaid world hasn’t exactly gotten to the same point. And it’s sad, because what is a bride without her tribe? And what is her tribe without its crew of crazy, excited, happy-crying sisters? Happy and smiling, because they feel just as stylish, sassy, and confident as their main girl. For soooo many years, brides have made dutiful strides to be as inclusive as possible when it comes to picking dresses for their besties, but have they really had enough to choose from to make every one of their ladies satisfied? Eh, we wouldn’t say so.
That’s why we’re all in on this brand new roll out from one of our aisle-style crushes. Show Me Your Mumu has been making bride squads smile for years now, because they know what’s up when it comes to understanding the anatomy of a diverse, mixed-body-type type of bridal party. They’ve offered inclusive sizing since the beginning - XXS to XXL on all of their designs - but the 1X, 2X, and 3X extension is even more clap-worthy. Why? Well, because it isn’t a one and done capsule collection, curvy edit to ‘keep up appearances’ and try to fit in with the ever-more-inclusive fashion world. The sizing extension is being adapted for SMYM’s most popular bridesmaids silhouettes and for the long haul. I.e. it’s not token.
Being 'adjustable' is key
"Being "adjustable" is key with all of our styles - For example on the Caitlin and Hacienda - the elasticated waist detail keeps you comfortable all day & night long and can fit so many different body types. Even just having the option to wear off-the-shoulder or to cover your arms is so important because some girls do want the extra coverage. We also pay attention to other key details, such as making sure the ruffle lengths hit you at all the right places, but without making you look too covered or without shape. In regards to the Noelle Wrap Dress - this is a style that looks good on every body type! You can wrap tighter if you want more coverage, and then the flutter sleeve is just the right length for everyone!" ~ Show Me Your Mumu Founders, Cammy Miller and Cologne Trude
And that’s awesome, because no bridesmaid EVER wants to feel like the one who stands out. The one who couldn’t wear what the rest of the girls wore, so she had to find something else that pseudo blended, but didn’t quite match perfectly. Very awkward, yet very real reality.
Catering to women of all shapes, the new collection is gorgeous and designed to fit comfortably with styles featuring elastic waistbands, adjustable straps, and wrinkle-proof fabrics, and everything will be optioned in trendy colorways and 😍😍😍 patterns, too.
Starting with what's always worked best!
"We have always designed our bridesmaids collection with comfort and variety in mind. The new, extended sizing is simply an extension of all of our most popular dresses using the same fabrics and styles to ensure that a bride can have all of her besties looking great in Mumu on her big day. We're definitely excited to offer the champagne luxe satin as a new fabrication- it's such a pretty color and it feels so silky and soft! Bouquet Toss is another print we are excited about, as it's one of our most popular prints, and we have extended sizes in the Hacienda Maxi Dress and the Audrey Maxi Dress. Color mixing has always been an important part of the Mumu brand and we love the idea of going back to our roots with solids and prints!"
[Between the lines] basically, it’s not all just black ensems or loud prints and designs that hide all the worrisome areas: arms, boobs, tummies, and 🍑. The new new Mumu is available online and also at their beautiful boho bridal boutique in Venice, CA. Just take a look at how pretty this place is. Why do I live in Jersey? UGH.
Oh! And for the getting ready portion of the day, they’ve gone extra with those sleep sets for the bride-to-be, MOH, and bridesmaids, too! So cute.
