When it comes to finding “the one” and having that movie-magic moment where your bridesmaids break into a sob after just one look of you in the perfect dress, it all comes down to finding the right shape for your body. We’ve turned to the experts for this one, putting our ear close to the ground and listening to the suggestions that dress designers may have for some potential gown stumbling blocks.
You’re fuller in the hip/thigh area:
Choose something you are comfortable in. If you are confident and love your curves, then there are ways to make a fitted dress accentuate all the right areas. If you are more conservative or feel self-conscious, then go with something that cinches in at the waist and naturally flows out from there.
You have larger than average breasts:
Get a fully structured bustier if your bust needs that lift and support, or a daring plunge for those girls stay in place.
You are petite
If you are going for lace, something with smaller patterns would be best. If not, choose something streamlined and gorgeous! Even the princess look can work, if done right.
You don’t look good in classic white or ivory
Nude, toffee and sand shades are hot this season! Oyster is also a wonderful shade that suits a variety of skin tones.
You’re not too keen on exposing a lot of skin
A beautiful, hand-engineered, appliquéd illusion sleeve is the best of both worlds!
