It takes a lot of thinking, when it comes to choosing the right wedding dress for your wedding day. And its one of the biggest decision you will ever make during your wedding preparation. Sad to say, a lot of brides just look at the design of the dress when it come to choosing the right wedding dress. Budget is one of the tough considerations but its not really a hindrance in choosing the right dress. In fact, you can actually look perfect and stunning without spending too much. It only takes a little research and planning.
First of, consider the following conditions, your shape of body, your skin tone and the features you would like to emphazize.
The pear shaped body is all in the lower part of your body. Your butt and thighs are visually bigger than your upper body. So, make some space for that base, people. Thanks To Kim Kardashian and others, this body is a rage right now.
The advantage with this body type is that you can create an illusion of an hourglass figure if styled correctly. Your shoulders are narrow, and hips are wide. All you have to do is to strike a balance. Or, wear outfits that enhance your lower body, either way, works well.
A-line skirts or dresses with patterned or ruffled tops that add definition to the upper body look great. Wear loose tops help create an hourglass illusion. Crop tops, sweetheart, V or deep-V, scoop or boat necks will balance your bottom out.
The hourglass body type is the most balanced of all with a proportionate top and bottom part of the body with a well-defined waistline. So when you look for dresses, choose the ones that do just that for you. It is a body to die for, so flaunt it and in the right way.
Since you have a well-balanced figure, your dresses should do the same as well. The dress should sit well at the right curves and follow the outline of these curves. Make the most of it, because not everybody has this!
Dresses that cinch at the waist will be your best fit. V or plunge V and sweetheart necklines help you flaunt your upper body. To flaunt your waistline, go with a belt at your natural waistline or below the belly button—either way it only looks great. A-line dresses or similar cuts take care of working on the lower part of the body and needless to say; body hugging dresses are your thing, because, why not?
Apple-shaped figure is when you have a heavier upper body in comparison to your lower part of the body. People with this body type usually have broad shoulders, bigger bust line, and that’s why it feels like the weight gathers around the midriff.
Since most of the weight and concentration is above the hips, the mid-riff appears heavier than the remaining body with a minimal waistline. So, the idea here is to take the attention away from that part of the body and highlight your strengths. That’s why you need to flaunt your legs or wear the dress with V or deep V necklines that created an elongated illusion of the torso.
Rectangle shaped body is usually well balanced from the shoulders to the hips. So, there is not too much of a definition to your silhouette, and it’s fairly straightforward.
Your arms and legs are the assets. So, focus on enhancing that. It’s like the hourglass figure minus the defined waistline.
Choose A-line skirts, ruffled and layered tops. Dresses that add definition to your bottom and necklines that add meat to the upper body. Sleeveless, strapless and sweetheart lines are your thing.
