What is the best wedding dress for your body type?
On April 29, 2011, millions of women around the world watched with envy as Kate Middleton tied the knot with Prince William. Not only did she nab one of the most eligible men in the universe, but she wore a divine wedding dress – a stunning Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen creation which will go down as one of the most iconic wedding dresses in history. We won’t know the exact number, but for sure, a lot of brides-to-be or aspiring brides have copied or will be mimicking what Kate wore at her royal wedding.
If you’re one of these women, stop for a minute and ask yourself this question: Is this dress appropriate for my body type?
Just like any other piece of clothing, your choice of wedding dress style should complement your body type – it should emphasize your assets and draw the eyes away from the body parts you’re not too proud of. (Let’s face it — we all have some area of our bodies we would rather people didn’t notice.)
Fashion is the art of creating wearable optical illusion. And what better occasion for true fashion than your wedding dress?
But how do you choose the styles that make you look your absolute best? And even more important, which styles should you totally avoid?
Your friends and loved ones will tell you how ravishing and radiant you look on your wedding day no matter what you wear. But keep in mind that your wedding dress will forever live in infamy. It will be on your wedding video, on your wedding photos and in the memories of your family and friends. Ultimately, this is fashion immortalized. No wonder the choice of a dress can become so stressful!
So to help you avoid an ill-fitting fiasco, here are some tips to help you choose the best wedding dress styles that will flatter your body type.
