Classical by Beautiful Love Wedding 3

Wedding gowns that fits you properly, looks best on you. Find out your body shape, choose the dress accordingly to enhance your outfit and accentuate your features.

Peat Shaped Body

Look for a skirt that will gradually flare out forming an A from waist to feet. This will highlight the thinner mid-section and narrow the hips and thighs. You can also choose a V neckline and Spaghetti-strap bodice will focus more on the upper body. Choose a classic A-line gown which can also be made from the raw-silk shantung or eyelet lace.

Busty Body

Look for a wedding dress that has a scooped neckline. It will enhance your facial features without showing cleavage. If you like strapless gowns, choose one with neckline to balance the body shape. Avoid fabric that seeks attention and add volume on your chest such as silk, satin and organza.

Plus Size Body

Look for an empire dress with skirt that is beginning under the bust and have an A line. There should be no pleating on the chest and the gown should adjust to your body shape. Look for fabrics that provide a strong structure instead of a flowy look.

Petite Sized Body

Look for A-line gowns again as they are the trendiest. Find a wedding gown that has a waistline starting above your natural waist so that your lower half appear longer. Petite figure can pull off a high sheen. Petite brides should avoid overwhelming their figure and go for frothy ball gowns, structured trumpet and airy sheaths.

Hour-Glass Shaped Body

If you have an hourglass figure, show off the features with a streamlined silhouette that is slim. Look for Trumpet or mermaid fit gown that is best for your body. Ball gowns also go with structured body and go for a full skirt to achieve the elegant feminine touch.

Always remember to find the gown that you are most comfortable in instead of just following the trends. At the end of the day, you own your own wedding, and nothing should go wrong.
