Above and Beyond
As a plus size woman in the area, I’ve had Curvaceous Couture on my radar since before I met my fiancé. I had planned on dress shopping later in the year when I saw their social media posts about a Sample Sale and figured it would be a perfect time to go in so this past weekend I went in with my best friend.Sent on 07/21/2020
Long story short, I ended up visiting them both Saturday and Tuesday. Both times I felt so welcomed and even though I was terrified as a large bride, I felt beautiful and never for a second was made to feel like there was any shame in any part of my body or the journey that I’m on with my weight. I felt like I was talking to friends and I appreciated that they listened to my concerns, addressed them, and really seemed to be respectfully caring in the process.
I couldn’t recommend them highly enough and I’m
so glad I said yes to the dress here!

I love this store!
I had a wonderful time finding my dress at Curvaceous Couture today. The store is beautiful and the staff was amazing! Every dress they suggested I try on was gorgeous, and they had a great variety of styles to choose from.Sent on 06/22/2019

Best decision ever!
As a full figured female I found myself dreading wedding dress shopping. Truly dreading it. My Mom had her mother of the bride dress before I had even tried a bridal gown on. Fast forward through a few less than positive experiences and I decided to give Curvaceous Couture a visit. I have never felt more comfortable and confident in my own skin as I did with the women who helped me find my gown. The energy is positive, the staff is friendly, and the options are endless. I found the gown of my dreams on my first visit and would suggest this to any full figured woman looking for a positive experience!!! You will not regret shopping with Curvaceous Couture!Sent on 12/19/2019

Wonderful Staff and Exceptional Collection
Made a last minute appointment about a week ago when I had an unexpected evening off. The staff was so accommodating in giving me an appointment and then staying late when my appointment ran late. I had looked at other dresses and their selection was nothing like I had seen anywhere else! Great dresses at all price points and my consultant was just so nice! She provided some pointers when looking that I had not considered before and was just so knowledgeable! You're totally in good hands here! Highly Recommend!Sent on 02/02/2019

There are not enough words to show my appreciation for this store. I was so nervous going wedding dress shopping because of my size and worry of not finding something that fit me and made me feel beautiful. This was the first and only store I went to. They listened to me and let me put on the only dress I knew I wanted to try and we immediately knew it wasn't the right one. After a few more dresses picked by friends and my mom, the stylist brought out the perfect dress for me. We all fell in love and I was so happy with it! I love my dress so much and I looked amazing on my wedding day!Sent on 11/08/2019

I would recommend this plus size dress shop to anyone! I thought I would have a hard time finding a dress or even bring able to try on dresses being plus sized. I'm a fairly bigger gal and I had no problems at all! Their sizes are very inclusive! Everyone there was completely professional and above all expectations. I found my dress here and it was my first time being at a dress botique. I even bought my gorgeous veil and crown. Even though it was a sale week the prices were more than generous. If you're a plus sized bride you must come here! Thank you for helping me find The Dress!!!!Sent on 07/24/2018

I love, love, love this salon! Their main focus is on the brides with curves but all sizes are welcome. The salon is owned by two sisters Yukia and Yuneisia and they are every bit of how you see them on their show. I purchased my dress there with Yuneisia BEFORE they got their TLC show Curvy Brides. She was a pleasure and joy to work with and she helped me find the perfect dress for me! The price was fabulous too.Sent on 05/25/2015
If you are looking for a beautiful salon that offers an amazing gown shopping experience for all brides regardless of their size please visit this salon. You will have a great selection to choose from and will receive friendly and personalized attention.

Dress of My Dreams
While visiting a friend, she recommended we try Curvaceous to find my wedding dress. I was initially concerned about finding a wedding dress at a size 16w with an hourglass shape. But I found my dress and it was the easiest piece of the whole wedding planning process.Sent on 06/07/2020

My dream dress
After trying several shops and feeling very discouraged I found curvaceous couture!! My engagement time is short so unfortunately I did not have time to order a dress. However the salon worked with me in creating everything that was on my wish list to ensure that my day would be perfect. They went above and beyond to make me happy. This was by far one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. The salon owners treated me like I was family and gave me their honest opinion to ensure that I picked the perfect dress.Sent on 06/05/2019

Where do I start!?! These ladies had me looking out of this world!! I was so glad my sister recommended me to this salon because they had everything you could want as a plus size girl. This was the second place I had been to for trying on dresses and little did I know that I had found the one. It took me a while but I finally made the decision since Im in decisive. They really took care of me and gave me the royal treatment and making suggestions that were valuable in the end.
For my fitting, it went ok. I did feel a little rushed since they were dealing with another troublesome bride but one of the shop owners noticed my uneasy feeling as I was about to leave. She assured me that we should go back into the dressing room to make sure I was 100% satisfied. She ended up suggesting some under garments that smoothed out things in all the right places and then my dress looked perfect! I left feeling so satisfied. I got sooo many compliments on my dress and it fits me just like I wanted!Sent on 11/20/2019

I was dreading dress shopping until I found Curvaceous Couture!
I was dreading wedding dress shopping before I discovered Curvaceous Couture. I was even thinking of having a dress custom-made for me to avoid having to go to a store that didn't have a good selection in my size (size 18 in regular clothes at the time). At Curvaceous Couture I ended up having so many beautiful choices there were at least 3 dresses that were my top choice - it was hard to choose THE one. The staff was professional, friendly and fun. The shop is set up according to your budget so you aren't looking at (and falling in love with) dresses out of your budget. Speaking of budget, I flew to Baltimore to go to Curvaceous Couture and I feel that even with the added expense of travel my dress was still a great value. I got so many compliments on my dress at my wedding and I only wish I could wear it for another occasion! (I should note that I lost 40 pounds before my wedding and since I don't live in Baltimore I had my alterations done in my own town.) I can't reccomend this boutique highly enough!Sent on 06/04/2019

AMAZING selection and service
I LOVE THIS STORE! Amazing and helpful staff, wonderful tailoring, and nice service. Jazzy was my consultant and she was flawless! She was quick to read my facial expressions and body language when I loved or didn't like something, and had plenty of suggestions for dresses for my body type. I don't love trying on clothes but I LOVED coming to this store any time I had a fitting. These ladies are the real deal and I love everything about this place. My perfect dress was inside, and for such a reasonable price! Drop by, you won't be disappointed!!Sent on 06/27/2019

Service is the Best!
I have always been a plus size girl. And when I got engaged the thought of going wedding dress shopping always made me nervous and just sick to my stomach. It wasn't until I heard about Curvaceous Couture that I actually got excited about trying on the most important dress I will ever where!
From the moment we walked into Curvaceous my mother and I felt like family. Every single person that works there is so kind and professional, its hard to really explain it. They do not push you into making a decision and they are truly there to make the dress you have always dreamed about become a reality.
Yuneisia is the most genuine and kind hearted person I have ever met. She was able to take an experience that I dreaded because of my full figure body and make me feel like an absolute princess. On our wedding I was able to actually feel beautiful and happy because of the dress Yuneisia and her staff made for me.
Because of the experiences I was having at curvaceous my mother decided to get her mother of the bride dress from here!
I could really go on and on about the quality of the dresses and the service that I received here. I would recommend Curvaceous to anyone! With the insane variety of dresses that you can actually try on and feel comfortable in and with their team they can create anything for you to wear on your special day and make it a one of a kind dress!Sent on 11/07/2019

Found my dream dress!
I waited until it was almost too late to find a dress.I had been to several other bridal shops and just couldn't find my dream dress. I sat down with my consultant, Makhaya,and she brought me the dress I described to her and I fell in love as soon as I put my dress on! Every time I went in for alterations I was treated like a queen. I am so thankful for Curvaceous Couture - I felt like a a real princess on my wedding day!Sent on 05/29/2019

Curves matter here:)
From the moment you walk in, you will feel like special. The dresses are beautiful and there is so much to choose from. They have something for everyone here. Makiya (?) was so helpful with finding my dress. She got my vision instantly. I would definitely recommend this location to everyone .Sent on 03/25/2019

Welcoming, Helpful, Family
Jazzy, Michaela, & all the ladies at Curvaceous (including Aunt Rita & Amy in alterations) were so helpful and made this entire process absolutely perfect and painless.
From the second we stepped into the shop, we were welcomed with smiles, waited on hand and foot, and made to feel like princesses. We are a two bride couple and they were super helpful and understanding of our wishes to keep both of our dresses a secret from the other bride.
Jazzy even wrote us a beautiful note about our dresses which we read at our first look. The personal touches each and everyone of them made for us on our big day will not soon be forgotten.
We both ended up getting the gown of our dreams and we were equally stunned at how we looked on our big day.
Thank you ladies!!

Dress to Love
I found my dress during one of the sample sales at an excellent price. From the moment I stepped in the shop I was welcomed and in awe of the dresses available fore curvy girls like myself. I also got my dress altered here. And when I tell you when i got my dress back before taking it home it fit like a glove. It looked like a whole new dress. It was originally too big. The staff and owners were amazing and friendly. They had reminders on days i needed to come in for my initial dress search to the alterations. The whole process was made easy.Sent on 03/09/2019

I'm the mother of the groom in a wedding where the everyone but me is slender. The whole idea of all the pictures was really bringing me down. I had seen the Curvaceous Couture show on TLC, so I knew the experience would be great in terms of customer service - and it was. I mixed up the appointment time and arrived an hour late, but they were still able to accommodate me. The thing that I didn't expect was that There were so many flattering Event gowns to try on! I tried on seven and felt great in four of them - not something that usually happens! Two were so beautiful I couldn't decide, so I'll have to go back with my future DIL. I went by myself because I figured I wouldn't look good in anything and would be embarrassed, but shopping at CC was so wonderful I'm looking forward to going back and picking the final dress!Sent on 08/04/2017

This is the right choice
My wedding dress was absolutely stunning! I was "heard" on what I sought in a wedding dress and every dress they showed me was divine. The women that run this shop know about customer service with a smile. They were always patient and professional but it also felt like you were part of the family! Thanks Yukia and Yuneisia and the rest of the family! Curvaceous Couture Bridal Collection is exceptional! They are the best bridal salon in the DMV.Sent on 11/15/2018

I had a wonderful experience with Curvaceous Couture in 2012. I was able to find the perfect dress and could actually try it on in my size! It was such a pleasant experience and so much better than when I tried shopping at one of the larger chains!Sent on 01/14/2015

Above and Beyond Service
This review is LONG overdue. I could not let the year end without sharing the wonderful experience that I had purchasing my dress from here. From start to finish the customer service exceeded my expectations. At my first appointment, my stylist really heard what I was saying about the type of dress that I wanted and pulled the perfect dress in the first group. I was so in love with that dress that I am pretty sure I stood in the mirror for an hour. Now let's talk about alterations!! First, I am ever so thankful because I was late to my alterations appointment and my panic level was at an all time high because I knew that the salon was busy and I was a bit last minute getting my dress. They were able to squeeze me in to make it work. I made several alterations (adding detachable sleeves and building a very long detachable train) and Amy knocked it out of the park. I will be forever thankful to the ladies that made me feel like family and went above and beyond to make sure that I looked great on my special day. I am still getting complements on my dress months after the wedding.Sent on 12/27/2018
