There’s nothing more beautiful than a bride that is comfortable in her own skin. Every young girl dreams about that one special fairytale dress, but as a bride to be, reality is starting to kick in. Having your little girl dreams merged into a Pinterest mood board nowadays, it is critical that you look beyond the pretty dress.
Today we are going to discuss the different shapes and silhouettes concerning the wedding dress. Firstly, to decide on the shape, you need to identify your body type. Consider those small, gentle curves and focus points on your body.
If you have a big belly, it is important to choose a dress with detail only right beneath the busts. This will take the emphasis away from your belly, more upwards to your shoulders. When having a long torso but short legs, an A-line dress is surely for you. This will give more definition to your lower body and make your legs seem longer. It is important to note that when having big busts, to always stay away from A-line dresses and rather consider a fold-over dress with a bottom that has a nice loose and elegant flow.
If you have small busts, a strapless dress will be perfect for you. A strapless dress gives definition to collar-bones and creates a fuller feel around the breasts. Every single body type can look flawless in a wedding dress when you merge a dress with the correct body type and silhouette.
Planning a wedding day, includes a lot of small mysteries and moments, creating one magical day. Thus you need to ensure that your dream dress fits the theme and feel of the rest of the wedding. Remember to consider the bridesmaid dresses as well. When choosing a wedding dress with a lot of detail, be sure to choose simplistic dresses for your bridesmaids, and the other way around. This will ensure balance and harmony on your wedding photos.
While we are on the bridesmaid topic, remember to ensure that either your mom, mother-in-law or maid of honour knows how to tighten and fasten your dress. Let the designer or bridal store show her exactly how to do it that best fits you. This will make the dress-up on the day more comfortable and your wedding dress will fit like a glove.
