Whether you’ve been eyeing up a dreamy taffeta and tulle ball-gown or prefer to swathe your silhouette in a streamlined sheath, we’ve got the low-down on how to choose the perfect dress for your shape.
1. Enhance Your Best Features
Whether you wish to reveal or conceal consider your best feature then play to your strengths. Long, lithe legs look amazing in short, flirty styles while an elegant shoulder is enhanced with an off-the-shoulder V-neckline that reveals décolletage. Petite figures are elongated in a mermaid gown while a trumpet skirt offers the advantage of a continuous line.
2. Count On Structure
Delve into the fine art of corsetry and interior structure and discover a whole new way to wear your wedding dress without anxiety. With careful boning and structured bodices, it may be possible to go bra-less without the worry of spillage.
3. Embrace Your Curves
Rather than attempt to disguise your voluptuous figure, revel in the huge selection of dresses specifically designed to reveal and flatter. Choose from a dropped-waist design which keeps eyes moving upwards towards the shoulders or balance your proportions with a cinched in waist, drawing the eyes to the narrowest part of the body. Universally flattering, the A-Line dress suits all types of figures.
4. Say Yes To The Dress
Take your cue from Monte and Lori on the hit TV show ‘Say Yes To The Dress’ and get ‘jacked up’ before making your final decision. With the addition of a luxurious lace veil and headdress you’ll find your bridal ensemble finally comes together.
