Your bridal shower is one of the milestone moments where you'll have the realization, "OMG! I'm getting married!" But the shower, along with your other pre-wedding parties, are also a great opportunity to flaunt your personal style! Here, Shafonne Myers, owner and CEO of Pretty Pear Bride, shares three figure-flattering style tips for brides to help you look your best at your big-day party.
Wear a belt below your bust with a dress or over a cardigan to instantly make you appear taller. Thin belts will also help slim your waistline. Try wearing one in a complementing color to make it pop.
A pair of heels can totally transform a a look. They will elongate your legs, which in turn will make you look taller and stretch your midsection out. And if you don't feel comfortable wearing stilettos all night, choose a mid-level heel or even a wedge. Both of these will give you the look of a heel without the foot pain.

Most blazers will flatter any and all body shapes and sizes, but get it tailored to make sure it's the perfect fit. Opt for it in a size that's just a tad bigger and get it sized down. And just as with other accessories, a blazer is meant to enhance your look so don't be afraid to play with different colors or fabrics. (We're obsessed with Mindy Kaling's gold number above!)
