The wedding dress is indeed among the salient factors to consider in planning a wedding. In choosing her wedding dress, the bride has to keep in mind that a perfect or good fit and style will surely make her stunning.
A style showing a bursting middle, waist that is thin and a definite top is called the hourglass. The dress could either be undecorated and bare or embellished with full embroidery. For a bride with full hips, small waist and big bust, this type of wedding dress will emphasize her curvaceousness.
The A-line cut of wedding dress is considered a very classic design. It is called A-line cut since it looks like the letter ‘A’. The top is often tapered, its waist sloped and has a flaring skirt. To fit a figure with bulky hips and waist, this dress design should be chosen.
A wedding dress that looks like a mermaid’s tail is called the mermaid shaped style. A distinguishing feature of this dress is that it has a narrow top which flares out down 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. Because the overall line of this type of dress distinct, it gives a taller appearance to small-figured women.
Another closely fitted design is the sheath wedding dress where its hem most often stops just over the knees. Using simple materials in making this dress purposely intends to present a woman’s nice figure but not so much of details. To give accent to slender hips and long legs, this is the dress style of choice.
An age-old design that is still loved is the empire-waist dress that made to fit tightly around the bust line but the rest of the dress flows down straight. For brides with smaller busts and slightly perfect hips, this wedding dress is the best choice. Brides who want their breasts to appear larger should wear this dress because of the effect given by the dividing line of the fabric and this type of wedding dress also gives a thinner appearance for the figure.
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.
Another design is the gathered skirt which has pleats and folds at the waist or hip level or at the meeting of the skirt and bodice. This dress is similar to those worn by fairy tale princesses. For the tall and thin young brides, they wear this dress better because of the effect given by the volume of the skirt and enhanced hips which makes them seem quite smaller.
