Did you know…The classical length of a formal wedding dress, including the heels, is two inches from the floor. But informal wedding dresses are allowed to be much shorter:)
Today I want to continue the topic about informal wedding dresses that match the figure.
Here is some advice from our stylist:
If you want to look taller than you actually are, choose a dress with an inflated waistline (“Empire”), low necklines, long gloves and spiked heels.
And if you want a formal dress – choose the one with the longest tail possible, it may add the mystique of height and slenderness.
If you are willing to reduce your perceived height, try a slinky romantic dress with low a waistline, wide belt and bell sleeves. Feel free to open the top of the dress and weighing down the bottom with lace, embroidery, flowers and ribbons.
A gorgeous bust must be accentuated with a glamouros V-neck. A small bust on the other hand can be enlarged with an inflated waistline in true Victorian style.
Who dream to look a little more curvy will look perfect in fluffy vintage dresses and ball gowns with ribbons, lace and flounces.
Plus size brides
Should not choose a dress with lots\of lace and ruffles. Try to attract attention to the bust and make the skirt straight.
Bare your back if you have a regal/beautiful bearing. This looks very nice especially with lace and embroidery.
May choose the dress or jacket with an inflated waistline.
If you wish to hide this part of your body – draw attention away from it. Put focus on the gown bodice – embroidered, beaded or decorated with flowers and choose an original neckline.
If you have broad shoulders try to avoid low a neckline and straight skirt.
Narrow shoulders and wide hips
Try on a ball gown or fantasy decorative dress. I wouldn’t advise any direct silhouettes. Open shoulders? – Yes, please!
Big bust and hips
In this case you can opt for low waistline and gorgeous neckline (A-Line). No – a style too lush nor a fluffy waist.
Girls without a waist should choose dresses in “Empire” style. Brides with low a waistline look great in A-Line dresses.
PS: Listen to the advice of the seller and try on not only what you like, but what is recommended by an experienced consultant.
