Ask dapperQ: Wedding Suits for Curvier dapperQs?

This is our fifth post in dapperQ’s Wedding Week, where we feature dapper weddings and answer all of your burning wedding questions.

A reader asks:

“Where can I find a wedding suit for the curvier butch? I am getting married and have no plans on dieting just so I can look like a totally different person for one day!”

First, check out our store guide, which lists quite a few queer owned and operated and/or queer friendly vendors that offer suits specifically for dapperQs. Saint Harridan, Fourteen, Duchess, Butch Clothing Co., Bindle & Keep, and Kipper Clothiers are just a sample of retailers that made the list. Many of them offer bespoke (custom made) and ready-to-wear (off the rack) suits made to fit a variety of body types. Here are some examples of what you’ll find:
