Choosing the Wedding Gown according to your body shape

By on January 29, 2015

The big day is coming along fast, have you selected your dress? The wedding gown is always one of the key features of the event. This can only mean that it should be perfect. Now you might argue that there is nothing perfect under the sun. However, it is possible to have that wedding gown that makes your event the point of reference whenever one mentions a great wedding.

It goes without saying that the gown is that which accentuates the beauty of your body type. There are women who go the extra mile to shed off a bit of weight for their wedding. This is also highly encouraged but if you do not have the time to do it- do not force yourself. Here are some tips on how to select the best wedding gown for your body type.

Pear-shaped body

These are the people whose hip region is wider than the bust. For such a body shape, the finest gowns are those that gradually flare out in an A-formation. It highlights the narrowness of the midsection and floats away from the hips and thighs. An off-shoulder collar is really tricky for any body shape but then for pear-shapes it tends to work almost all the time.

Hour-glass

The hour-glass ladies are those whose bust and hip regions are pretty much the same size. The goal of the gown in this case will be to enlarge the face slightly and display your neck without showing too much of cleavage. The midsection that is narrow should also be highlighted and this possible if you get the aforementioned dress for pear-shaped bodies. To accentuate your face go for a dress with an elegant neckline and if you take a strapless gown (off-shoulder) it should have a slight dip along the neckline.

Plus-size

Long gone are the days when plus-sized women could not get elegant wedding gowns in the shops. You can make your size work for you. This is possible if the dress is too tight or too loose. An empire dress whose skirt begins just under the bust and flow out gradually is the perfect. Make sure that the empire seam is not start on the chest and that there are no pleats on the fabric otherwise it will look like a maternity piece. If too loose the dress will make the body look bigger.

Apple-shape

The hip and bust regions are same size with no defined waistline. The dress should not emphasize this fact. The best part to emphasize is the neckline. It will call attention to the upper region more. Add stunning jewelry and you will not have to worry about people focusing too much on your belly area.
