CURVE


The CURVE collection started with one thought— that individuality should be celebrated and that all women should have the same beautiful experience when searching for their perfect wedding dress. At KAREN WILLIS HOLMES we believe the natural, beautiful curves of a woman’s figure should be celebrated and that your shape should be embraced and accentuated.

This plus-size collection is made of the highest quality lace and crepe fabrics and each gown is distinctly made to give our brides the ability to truly showcase who they are on their wedding day. Each CURVE gown is designed in stretch fabric so that comfort is not sacrificed for beauty and so that the lace or crepe material flawlessly hugs your figure.

Almost all of the gowns in the CURVE collection have a fitted shape that perfectly highlights your gorgeous silhouette. If you’re looking to add a classic A-line touch to your CURVE gown, we have a selection of detachable wedding dress trains for that exact reason— plus they give you the option of two looks in one.

With unique elements and intricate details, there is a gown for every style in our CURVE collection. If you’ve dreamed of simple, romantic elegance or modern, bohemian beauty, a gown that’s impeccably balanced between sexy and modest or something that is freeing and lets you shine, you can find your perfect wedding gown in this stunning collection.

Our collection of CURVE wedding dresses was based on our WILD HEARTS collection, who’s gowns are boho and trendy but with a relaxed elegance about them. With unique detailing that is synonymous with a KAREN WILLIS HOLMES wedding gown you’ll find something that feels exactly like it was made for you.

Distinctive feature elements like plunging necklines, skirt splits and bold texture come together to give you the wedding look you’ve been dreaming of. Whether you’re having a casual beach wedding or planning your ceremony and reception in a luxurious ballroom, our CURVE gowns take on whatever tone you’re planning for your day.

The modern lace used in this collection is unlike anything ever seen before— a perfect harmony, statement while also minimal, fun while also streamlined. The philosophy behind every KAREN WILLS HOLMES gown is that your individual style should shine through on your wedding day and our CURVE plus size wedding dresses embody that notion as well.

Many gowns in this collection have the option to be sleeveless or finished with long sleeves and if you prefer the more streamlined look of a classic skirt, the gowns that feature splits can be altered to close them. If you’re favoring a gown from this line, we’d love for you to visit one of our bridal boutiques and truly experience the collection in person.

When you try on our sample dress of your favorite gown, our stylists are expertly able to show you the full range of what your look can be and all of the options available to you. Each of these gowns is proudly handmade in Sydney, Australia and carried in our five boutiques throughout Australia and NYC.

We’d love to see you in one of our boutiques where our stylists can assist you in finding the dress that was meant for you. If you’re not near one of our KAREN WILLIS HOLMES boutiques, not to worry, you can shop online or with one of our stockists across the globe. Get in touch so we can help you find your closest shop.

I Don't Live Near a KWH Boutique or Stockist, How can I Purchase a KWH Gown or Obtain Expert Advice?

If you don’t live near a KWH boutique, contact our customer service team directly and we will have a solution for you to secure your dream gown. Our team can also offer you styling advice via phone or email. Feel free to contact them on +61 2 9519 3901 or info@karenwillisholmes.com.

What if I Have a Short Timeline?

We do carry stock of some gowns in-house, or we can sometimes make an ELOPE or BESPOKE gown in much shorter timeframes if we have all the fabric and time in our production calendar to fit your order in. As well, our LUXE line is a ready-to-wear line which means we can work with a shorter time frame as long as your desired gown is in stock. While we can work with shorter time frames, we always recommend a longer timeline, as having a shorter one will limit what is available to you.

If you have a short time frame, please contact us on info@karenwillisholmes.com or + 61 2 9519 3901 to discuss your options.

Will I Need Alterations?

Alterations are expected and essential for the finishing touches to any gown and will make the gown truly yours. When purchasing a gown, we take your body measurements to help determine the closest standard size to your body based on our size chart. However, alterations are needed to fine-tune for fit and to your personal preference. Whether that means taking in a gown to make it smaller for your hips, bust, or waist (or maybe everywhere), adding cups, shortening straps, hemming the length, and adding in the bustle for your train, alterations are a standard part of the whole process.

How do I Style a CURVE Wedding Dress?

Our CURVE gowns look beautiful when styled with our veils and detachable trains. Adding a train to one of these dresses amps up the feminine softness and creates a distinctly unique look for your big day. Veils and trains can also add a little something extra to a more simple gown.
