How To Choose Wedding Dress According To Figure
Fit is the most important thing when it comes to a wedding dress, not the price or the name of the brand. Choosing certain silhouettes may disguise or expose the areas you would like to hide so make sure to know your body type and choose the right dress style for your figure.
Wedding Dress According To Body Type
Pear Figure Type
Pear figure is defined by curvier thighs, thin waist and narrow shoulders. To balance out this type of figure and accentuate a waspy waist opt for a petticoat. Its full skirt will disguise the difference between the upper and lower body while the belt will define the thin waist.
Apple Figure Type
Ladies with apple figure type should opt for plunge and V-shape necklines and raised waists. Make sure the skirt is long and straight as it will visually elongate your figure. Empire style gown may just be right for this. It can also be a solution to rectangle body type.
Inverted Triangle Type
An inverted triangle body type is easy to balance out with a strapless ball gown. The ball gown skirt will add volume to your hips balancing out the wider shoulders.
Petit brides may find it daunting to find the right size wedding dress for themselves but you can take all the advantages of your size and go for princess silhouette wedding gown. You can also choose from an array of options that include a straight sheath, column, A-line and fitted dresses. Avoid ball gowns and very elaborate styles.
Tall brides can choose from a wide range of wedding dress styles as well, avoiding column and sheath dresses that elongate figure.
Busted brides can opt for V necks and simple style bodices sans bows, ruffles and other voluminous decorations that, on the contrary, will benefit brides with small busts adding volume to their chests.
Those of you who have hourglass figure can choose any style from mermaid silhouette to ball gown or sheath dress.
