Finding the ideal wedding dress is crucial for any future bride. Every woman wants to be the center of attention on her wedding day, and the right dress is just one of the many things that can have a big impact on the way the bride looks on her big day. Unfortunately, most women find that the search for the perfect dress is challenging and frustrating - often because they are not really sure which type of dress they should be looking for.
It is always appealing to start searching for a dress that is currently fashionable, but there are several problems with this approach. Firstly, experts recommend that brides start to look for a wedding dress months in advance of the actual big day. In some cases, this can be as much as a year before the big day. Secondly, this advice means that many dresses that are in fashion right now will not necessarily still be fashionable by the time your big day arrives. Thirdly, the so-called "trendy" dresses will often only look good on catwalk models, and fail to account for the curves that many normal women possess.
In lieu of comparison-shopping for the chic matrimony dresses, try out an outfit that meets your particular body shape and flatters your figure. Lots of women do not do this because they sadly have no idea about their figure, but it is really easy to identify which category you fall into.
Generally speaking, there are usually four unique body shapes:
Pear shapes: Those who are a pear shape have hips which are definitely wider than their shoulders. Some women with this type of body are uncomfortable with the size of their lower bodies and want to move attention faraway from the area. Stay clear of any tiered garments, as they are a huge no-no for pear shapes. Princess style garments are frequently a solid bet, as they conceal the hips. The empire style lines tend to be advisable, especially if you do not have huge bust.
Apple shapes: Girls that are an apple shape are wider on the top fifty percent of their body, so their shoulders are wider than their hips. If the wideness on the top half is caused by broad shoulders, this is often easier than you think to deal with. A dress with a v-neck works well for this problem, as it means that the shoulders are covered up. "Narrowing" the area with wide straps is the one other option. Puffed sleeves should be avoided, because they will only draw attention to your shoulders.
If the wideness is a result of an ample bosom, make sure you avoid any pockets, lapels and detailed embroidery in the area. Fundamentally, you ought to avoid anything that is going to accentuate the area. Choosing a dress that contains interesting details throughout is also a good move, as they force the eye downwards.
Hourglass shapes: An hourglass figure is one in which the top and bottom half of the body are perfectly balanced, with a very defined waistline. It is considered the perfect body shape, and those that have this figure are considered to be extremely lucky, as they are not limited in the clothes that they can wear. As the two halves of the body are so pleasantly balanced, make sure you avoid adding weight to either half, and simply draw attention to your body shape. Pick out a dress that clings to your waist, as this will show off your greatest assets.
Banana shapes: Women with banana body shapes tend to be slim with a waist that is not particularly defined, if at all defined. A strapless ball gown with a fitted neck is a good idea for this body shape, as is a fitted clothing with a significant neckline. If you are on the tall side, your height works as a plus point with these types of dress, especially if it features some fragile embroidery or beading as a finishing touch. Choosing a style with an abundant skirt will create the illusion of curves.
When you finally know which style of dress best suits your body shape, you are in a much better position to start the search for the perfect wedding dress. Finding a dress that suits your body shape is far more important than finding the most fashionable dress. Best of luck in your endeavour.
