The Details

Welcome to and thank you for checking out our gorgeous inventory! We are a brick and mortar shop known as The Curvy Bride, a plus size bridal boutique in central New Jersey. We have many beautiful sample gowns in the store that we offer at a discount "off the rack" and we would love to share these amazing deals with you!

For years, we have been hearing from brides across the country that they struggle to find samples in their sizes at their local, traditional bridal shops. Now we give you the opportunity to shop the sample sale, from the comfort of your own home, with dresses in your size!

While we do not offer special orders online for new gowns (in-store only), we do offer the samples you see here for purchase. These samples have been tried on at our shop, some more than others, but most are in excellent condition ready for the right bride! Please note these gowns have not been professionally cleaned.

These samples have never been altered. We do note any imperfections that we see on the gowns in each description, along with photos and manufacturer size chart measurements. Bridal sizes typically run 1-2 sizes smaller than street sizes, so be sure to compare your measurements to each gown's size chart measurements, and purchase based on your largest measurement. If you're not sure how to measure yourself, we suggest visiting a local seamstress for help or see our measuring guide below. Most wedding gowns need alterations in order to fit well and be adjusted for length. We would recommend taking your gown to your local seamstress to make it fit perfectly!


Ready to Shop? Here's How it Works

1) Browse our current selection and find your dream dress! There's only one of each in inventory, so if you love it - make sure you get it before it's gone! 

2) Purchase your gown through our convenient and secure check out process. Please note you will be responsible for shipping charges. Please see our Shipping Policy for full details.

3) Receive your gown! Make sure you have it shipped somewhere that someone can sign for it upon delivery. 

4) Have an in-home fashion show! You have 48 hours to decide whether you would like to keep your gown. If we do not hear from you within 48 hours from signing for delivery, the gown is yours to keep! 

5) If it's not the one for you, don't worry! You can ship it back to us for a refund, less shipping and handling. Please see our Return Policy for full details.
