Continued from Designer Bridal Gowns:
If you have a thin frame, you need a dress that will highlight the curves you have in the bust and hips, small as they may be. A form-fitting bridal gown with a fitted waist accomplishes this goal. Embellishments and/or adornments in the bust area, such as rosettes or other floral treatments can create the illusion of curves. Well-endowed women can look heavier than they are if they don’t select the right dress. You need a dress that allows for good support. So avoid spaghetti straps and look for wedding dresses that have wide straps that can accommodate a bra discreetly. Do not give into the temptation to hide your chest with a high neckline; this often draws more attention to the area than other necklines will.
For apple-shaped, you need an A-line or empire waist wedding dress to move attention away from the middle section of your body. If you have nice arms and legs, you can draw attention to those areas with a strapless gown or slit, respectively. While for pear-shaped, bridal gowns with an empire waist and fluid bottom are the best for this body type. Avoid wedding dresses that are form fitting on the bottom, as they are not likely to be flattering. For petite bride, to create the illusion of height, wear heels and a long bridal gown that is more fitted than not. You may have dreamed of that puffy, princess wedding dress, but you don’t want to go down that road. This style will swallow you up, rather than make you stand out.
Depending on which body type you are, you can choose or custom made a designer bridal gowns tailored to your needs and wants. It will surely make you look different in your most important day.
