Apparently this is the reason why Meghan Markle’s wedding dress didn’t fit properly



Okay so we were glued to the royal wedding back in May, and we loved it.


Anyway, it was a lavish affair, with celebs and royals brushing shoulders for the big day.

However, when the day was over, we were all kind of left wondering the same thing…

Why was Meghan Markle’s wedding dress too big for her?

Seriously, there was millions spent on this day, you’d think the dress would have been perfect.

Anyway, after months of wondering, we finally have some answers.

On the Podcast, Royally Obsessed, the hosts heard from a listener recently, who asked about the dress.

The email from the listener read:

“In an early episode you discussed Meghan Markle’s wedding dress and how she had not seen it more than once before her wedding day.”

“I point this out as I did not care for her dress at all, the biggest reason being the poor fit, and this something that should have been corrected given that she did have a number of fittings.”

The royal experts that host the Podcast gave their insight, explaining their theories about the ill-fitting dress.

Kaitlin Menza said:

“The tough one about this is, if she had seen the dress multiple times and had multiple fittings, it should have fit better.”

Kaitlin’s co-host, Lisa Ryan interjected: “Am I the only one in the world who’s like, it’s beautiful!”

Kaitlin replied: “It is beautiful, I love the concept, but it didn’t fit.”

Claire Waight Keller, the creative director of Givenchy, was the woman behind the dress.

Harper’s Bazaar writer Mahalia Chang recently wrote that the fabric chosen by Meghan and Claire was “extremely thick” and that the cut was to “let the bride move and breathe in the dress more comfortably.”

So there you have it folks.

The dress was loose on purpose, so Meghan could be comfortable on her big day.
