A wedding dress is among the things that tops a wedding budget. Some really spend a lot for a grand wedding gown while other brides just settle on a cheaper alternative. But whether it is cheap or expensive, what’s more important is for the gown to complement the bride’s physical attributes.
Body shape and figure is one consideration in choosing a wedding dress. For a hour-glass body figure, the best option is a halter neck-line style to emphasize the body’s excellent features and provide an extended shoulder line illusion. If the hips is wider, a strapless or with strap ball gown would be good. However, avoid bias cut and straight gowns.
For slim, petite and smaller figures, an empire-line or high-neckline is recommended to give emphasis to the body length or to provide an illusion of a taller body. Keep away from full ball gown dresses. For curved and busty body figures, a v-shaped neckline would flatter the body features and provide an illusion of a perfectly sized bosom. A strapless gown with appropriate choice of supporting undergarment is also good. Avoid high neck lined dresses to prevent appearing disproportionate, plunging neckline too as this would be inappropriate in a formal event. For tummy and full hips figure, an A-line dress is a good choice to even out the tummy area and provide a slim line and perfect symmetry. what must be avoided are patterns and seams along the middle body section and accessories around that area. For body figure with flaccid arms, hide the arms in long sleeved gowns if too conscious about it but only for autumn and winter weddings. On warmer climates, choose a sleeveless gown with a shrug, wrap or laced jacket and do not part with those decorative accessories.
