If there’s one thing the bridal industry isn’t known for, it’s body diversity. According to XOJane, average wedding dress sample sizes run between sizes 8 and 12, which they say translates to a standard size 6 or 10. While such narrow sizes have remained the trend in the industry thus far, Stone Fox Bride and Eloquii are about to change that.
According to ELLE, Stone Fox Bride, a boho-chic bridal line, has teamed up with extended-size fashion company Eloquii to offer a capsule collection of wedding dresses “in sizes 16 through 24, including five styles from Stone Fox Bride’s main collection.”
With sizes fit for all body types, gowns from the collection will cost anywhere from $4,350 to $6,800, ELLE reports, with styles ranging from a tea-length peplum dress, to a silk slip dress, to wrap dresses.
Eloquii Creative Director Jodi Arnold told ELLE that she is excited to provide more wedding dress options to size 16 and up brides. “There are structured and ‘typical’ wedding dresses available, but for someone who does not want something so fussy, she does not have options,” she said of the collaboration.
Speaking on how Eloquii’s work with Stone Fox Bride fits with their mission, Arnold explained to ELLE, “We founded Eloquii with the idea that fashion doesn’t stop at a size 12. As a brand we are fashion first and believe every woman should have access to great style, trend options, and inspiration. This, of course, includes her wedding day.”
But if this collaboration weren’t enough, ELLE reports that Stone Fox Bride’s creative director, Molly Guy, “curated a selection of special-occasion dresses for wedding season on Eloquii.”
With dresses available for brides and wedding guests alike, Eloquii and Stone Fox Bride are proving that formalwear — just like all fashion — isn’t reserved for a select few.
