Preparing for a wedding: don’t forget to consider a very important factor–the wedding dress. The bride’s choice for her wedding dress should bring out best assets and it must also conform to the shape of her body.
A style showing a bursting middle, waist that is thin and a definite top is called the hourglass. The dress could either be undecorated and bare or embellished with full embroidery. This style of wedding gown is appropriate for a bride with large bust, usual hips and thin waist because her sexy curves are seen.
The A-line cut of wedding dress is considered a very classic design. It is called A-line cut since it looks like the letter ‘A’. Oftentimes, it has a flaring skirt, tapered top and sloped waist. This style best suits a bride with a figure that has more bulk on the waist and hips.
Looking like a mermaid’s tail is the mermaid shaped style wedding dress. A distinguishing feature of this dress is that it has a narrow top which flares out down the knees. An evolution of the mermaid dress is the fishtail wedding dress that has the same shape although its train is longer. This is the gown of choice for small-busted and small-waisted brides. Brides with smaller figure can look taller with this style because the overall line is highlighted.
Also closely fitting is the sheath wedding dress that specifically has a hem stopping before the knees. Using simple materials in making this dress purposely intends to present a woman’s nice figure but not so much of details. For women who want to highlight long legs and slender hips, this is a great dress style.
A historical, well-loved style is the empire-waist dress which is designed to fit around the bust line tightly and from there the dress falls straight. For brides with smaller busts and slightly perfect hips, this wedding dress is the best choice. The dividing line in the fabric gives the look of a larger breast and also makes the wearer look slimmer.
Looking like an evening dress is the column or straight cut dress but instead of the usual black, it is white. Brides feel good wearing this dress design because chances are they have already worn a dress with this shape already. There is a tendency that bumps or lumps will become evident if the dress is made out of thin and soft fabric because this design has no underskirt. This dress can be worn with elegance specifically for formal weddings if the bride has a good figure.
The gathered skirt design presents pleats and folds on the level of the hip or waist or just where the skirt and the bodice meet. This dress gives the look of a princess in a fairy tale. Wearing this kind of dress is apt for tall and slim young brides because their hips become emphasized thus giving a little smaller appearance as an effect of the skirt’s volume.
