Those who design wedding dresses make it their life's work to see that brides look their best on their wedding days. In no other industry is so much thought put into making the buyer look and feel so special.
And knowing that brides come in all shapes and sizes, how do designers do this? They do it by bridal plus size dresses that flatter different shapes. It's the bride's job to figure out what shape she is and then shop accordingly.
Which Dress is Best?
When you first start looking at gowns, ask the experts – salon fitters, tailors or even your wedding planner – what they recommend. Ask them to describe your shape. Do not ask your mother. She may tell say you will look wonderful in whatever you wear. Well, that's not necessarily true, and you want to get to the truth quickly, so you do not waste time shopping for the wrong style. Here are some questions to ask yourself or others:
Are your shoulders and hips roughly the same size, with a defined waist in the middle?
Are your hips wider than your shoulders?
Are your shoulders wider than your hips?
Are your shoulders, waist and hips all about the same size?
Gowns are designed based on the bride's silhouette and body proportion. Theplus size bridal gown should emphasize your best attributes and cloak your trouble spots.
First Scenario – The Hourglass Shape
This is when your shoulders and hips are about the same size, and you have a nice, defined waist. This is the classic hourglass shape. You have natural curves in the right places, so go look for a gown with a defined waistband that will show off your waist – like a trumpet shape or a sheath gown.
If you are a plus-size bride with an hourglass shape, look for a dress with ruching at the waist, or one that laces up the back to fully show off your curves. If you are a petite bride with an hourglass shape, look for one that defines the waist, but elongates the skirt – like one with layers of ruffles or embellishments that draw the eye down.
