The Many Styles and Shapes of Wedding Dresses
Preparing for a wedding: don’t forget to consider a very important factor–the wedding dress. The bride should pick a wedding dress that will highlight her beauty and that includes a good fit to her body structure.
One common style is the hourglass which has a tight waist, a bursting middle and a defined top. The bride has an option whether to have it fully embroidered or just leave it plain. To emphasize her sexy body, the bride with large bust, full hips and thin waist should opt this style of wedding dress.
Among the different designs, a classic one is the A-line cut. It is called A-line cut since it looks like the letter ‘A’. The skirt is flaring with a sloping waist and tapering top. For a bride with bulky hips and waist, this dress is an option.
Looking like a mermaid’s tail is the mermaid shaped style wedding dress. This dress specifically has a tight top and becomes wide at the knees. Aside from having a longer train, the fishtail wedding dress is similar to the mermaid dress. This design of wedding dress is good for brides with small waists and busts. Brides with smaller figure can look taller with this style because the overall line is highlighted.
One dress that fits tightly is the sheath wedding dress having a hem stopping just above the knees. With the purpose of showing a woman’s beautiful curves but not over emphasizing, making this dress involves simple materials. For women who want to highlight long legs and slender hips, this is a great dress style.
A vintage type of dress but still popular is the empire-waist dress that is designed to tightly fit around the bust line and the rest of the dress just falls straight. This dress style is very appropriate for brides who have slightly perfect hips and small busts. Because of the dividing line in the fabric, the breast appears to be larger and the bride also looks thinner in this dress.
Instead of the usual black evening dress, this white dress is called the column or straight cut dress. Brides feel good wearing this dress design because chances are they have already worn a dress with this shape already. The dress is designed without underskirt so if it is made of thin and soft fabric, it can show bulges. This dress can be worn with elegance specifically for formal weddings if the bride has a good figure.
The gathered skirt design presents pleats and folds on the level of the hip or waist or just where the skirt and the bodice meet. Fairy tale princesses wear this type of dress. The best wearers of this dress are the tall and slim young brides for the highlighted hips and volume of the skirt makes them look a little smaller.
