Hey Guys!!

This Friday we will talk about how to choose your wedding dress now that we know what body type we are 😉

But I have to tell you that it is a little bit more complicated because you can be an apple and be very tall or an apple and be very petite. Those two “apple girls” can’t wear the same dress. So in the next saga, we will focus on each kind of dress and see each with specific girls that match…

Hourglass

You are an hourglass if your shoulders and hips are about the same width and you have a well-defined waist.

Tips:

– Take advantage of your proportioned body shape and showcase your curves. While any wedding dress silhouette can do this, Sheath, Mermaid and

Trumpet will especially flatter you.

–  Showcase your defined waistline with Natural waistlines and waistline accents like a jeweled or ribbon belt.

Skip:

Empire waists: they won’t showcase your slim waistline

 

Pear:

You are a pear if you are thinner on top with more curves/fullness on the bottom half.

Tips:

– Create balance for your shape by putting the attention on your upper half. Great options are one shoulder, strapless, v-neck, bateau or scoop necklines.

– Reduce attention your bottom half with ballgown or A-line silhouettes.

Skip:

– Sheath: too clingy for your shape.

– Mermaid and Trumpet: puts attention on the wrong half of your body.

– Halter/High Neck: can create a disproportionate look.

 

Apple

You are a apple if your shoulders are wider than your hips

Tips:

– Use lower/plunging necklines draw attention upwards. V-neck and sweetheart necklines are great options.

– Elongate your silhouette with a high waistline and a skirt that flows away from the body. Empire waist lines and A-line silhouettes are best for this.

– Consider showing off your legs with knee or tea length dresses.

Skip:

– Mermaid and Trumpet: will accentuate the widest part of your frame and flare at the slimmest.

– Ballgowns: won’t elongate your silhouette.

– Straight Across Strapless necklines: won’t accentuate your bustline.

 

Rectangle

You are a rectangle if shoulders and hips are about the same width and you don’t have a lot of waist definition.

Tips:

–  Create the illusion of curves by drawing attention upwards (strapless, v-neck, one shoulder) or towards the hem (Mermaid).

– Define your waistline. An empire waist will showcase the smallest part of your torso. Or a beaded detail or colored sash around the natural waistline will create definition.

Skip:

– Halter and High Neck: will make shoulders look narrow and as a result will not flatter your waist.

– Sheaths: will make you look boxy.

Good 🙂

– Wear a good supporting bra that will lift our bust and give you a more defined waist.

– Bring attention to your shoulder and neckline, wear designs that bring the eye to the centre by wearing wider and lower necklines.

– Extend the shoulder past the thickest part of the arms.

– DO wear a good bra and showcase your bust.

– DO wear fitted dresses.

– DO wear a belt at the waist to enhance your hourglass shape.

– DO try wrap dresses.

– DO go for high-waisted skirts to show off your hips.

– DO pick thin, lightweight styles and fabrics.

– DO wear skinny or straight leg jeans.

 

 Bad 🙁

– Don’t hide your curves with baggy clothing.

– Straight shapes that hide your waist.

– Fussy styles and details that create additional volume around your bust, tummy, thighs e.g. dropped sleeve lines, pleats, high-waisted styles, hip pockets.

– High necklines that cover up your cleavage and décolleté e.g. turtle neck.

– Boxy jackets, or double breasted styles, narrowing leg lines or wide/short sleeves which finish near your bust.
