Preparing for a wedding: don’t forget to consider a very important factor–the wedding dress. The bride should pick a wedding dress that will highlight her beauty and that includes a good fit to her body structure.
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. For a bride with full hips, small waist and big bust, this type of wedding dress will emphasize her curvaceousness.
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. To fit a figure with bulky hips and waist, this dress design should be chosen.
Looking like a mermaid’s tail is the mermaid shaped style wedding dress. This dress specifically has a tight top and becomes wide at the knees. The fishtail wedding dress resembles the mermaid dress but its distinguishing feature is that it has a longer train. 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. Because of the dividing line in the fabric, the breast appears to be larger and the bride also looks thinner in this dress.
A type of wedding dress that looks like an evening dress is the column or straight cut dress, however, it is white instead of black. Since this type of dress has a shape which similar to dresses that a lot of brides have worn already, it makes them more at ease to wear it. 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 is similar to those worn by fairy tale princesses. The best wearers of this dress are the tall and slim young brides for the highlighted hips and volume of the skirt makes them look a little smaller.
