Tales of a Plus Size Bridesmaid: Eliza Parker

September 8 2011 | CeCe Olisa

I’ve been spending so much time making sure my dress for the wedding was perfect, that I completely forgot about the rehearsal dinner.

As I mentioned before, Adam and I grew up together so I know most of his family. They’re all flying in from California and I want to look my best! Their rehearsal dinner is being held at a rooftop clubhouse overlooking New York City, so I wanted something romantic to wear.

If you haven’t heard of Eliza Parker, put them at the top of your list for amazing plus size dresses. I adore this brand!!! Their Nantucket dress is phenomenal with its A-line cut, full skirt, matching sash and pockets! I traded the sash for a belt to give it a bit more style, but you can wear it however you want.

The sizing from Eliza Parker is pretty straight forward, even with the buttons down the front I didn’t have any pulling. Standing on the roof, the breeze did create a few “Marilyn Monroe” moments because of the full skirt but for a dress this adorable, I didn’t mind!

      I am petite and plus size and have a hard time finding dresses. I went to the Eliza Parker website, the dresses are adorable. I then called to ask which dresses work best with petites – had the best fashion consultation of my life with the woman that started Eliza Parker. Thank you for mentioning her clothes in your blog. I will FINALLY have a LBD.
