Yay! The fun part of wedding planning has arrived! Most girls have paged through wedding magazines and trolled Pinterest, secretly saving photos of their DREAM DRESS. So, picking out a wedding dress is a pretty big deal.
As with regular clothes shopping, it is important to keep your body shape in mind when picking out a dress. Seeing something beautiful on the runway doesn’t necessarily mean that it will suit you.
Hour glass – your shoulders and hips are in line and you have a nipped-in waist
Buy a wedding dress that accentuates your tiny waist. Try a bias-cut or a mermaid cut dress.
Inverted triangle – your shoulders are wider than your hips
Add width to your hips by wearing a dress or skirt that is gathered. Try a dress with a nipped-in waist and detail on the bottom half. Avoid halter straps and spaghetti straps.
Boyish figure – your shoulders and hips are in line and your waist is undefined
Add volume to your hips and shoulders with an A-line skirt and a gathered waist. These slim figures are perfect for sleek dresses which don’t leave room for hiding imperfections.
Pear-shaped – your shoulders are narrower than your hips
To draw attention away from your shoulders and to balance them out with your hips, wear a high waisted A-line dress. Avoid halter straps, spaghetti straps or any shape that will enhance your shoulders.
Apple-shaped – you have a rounder tummy and hips
To hide your tummy, emphasize your bust by wearing a dress that flares underneath the bust. Try empire lines and avoid column or basque shaped dresses.
