Wedding dress how to choose the best for you

1.27.2014

Ladies, let’s face it: NOT everyone can have a standard size like super model Kate Moss, Miranda Kerr, Tyra Bank or all those godnesses of beauty.

Thanks God, we’re all different and unique!  However, the most important moment of your life is coming, you are a bride-to-be but you still confuse how to choose a perfect wedding dress that suits for your body type. Don’t worry about it. With bythuongtran, we encouragingly give you some general guidelines to help you get started on the road to wedding day bliss.

Hourglass: Like an hourglass, this figure type is full at the bust and hips but narrow through the waist. An hourglass figure already has symmetry, so the key to dressing this body type is to maintain that balance without concealing it or exaggerating the hourglass bride's already curvy shape.Most hourglass figures have proportionate shoulders and don't need to concern themselves too much with adding or subtracting visual width there, but they do face special challenges with dressing their decolletage. Deep, narrow v-necks, portrait styles, and simple scoops respect an hourglass figure's shape without drawing too much attention to the bride's cleavage. Voluptuous hourglass figures may not be able to wear a strapless or halter dress comfortably, but a sweetheart neckline with slim straps can create a nearly bare-shouldered look.

Apple: If you’re an apple-shaped bride, there’s a good chance that the part of your body that you might find problematic is your midsection or your abdomen. Take a second to think back on an occasion that you gained weight. If you stored the most fat in your midsection, you belong to this body type. However, this is no reason for you not to look glamorous on your wedding day.

Apple-shaped brides should flaunt their assets which are their “va va voom” busts and enviable slender legs. Go for open necklines like a sweetheart or an exquisite deep V. If you want to go for something embellished, make sure that these adornments are on the neckline or the hemlines – nothing on or near the abdomen. If you’re having a not-so-formal ceremony, you may also opt for A-line short dresses to flaunt those slender legs. Here’s another trick, since you can’t do any pizzazz on your midsection, you can have something dramatic on the back like a deep plunge or an interesting detail.

Tall and thin: A simple silhouette. The strategy is to emphasize your natural shape, so every aspect of the dress―the lower waistline, a floor-sweeping hem―needs to reflect your longer proportions. If you're wearing long sleeves, they should go past the wrist. You don't want to look as if you've borrowed a gown from someone shorter than you. 

Because you are statuesque, you'll want to err on the side of simplicity when it comes to embellishments. Too many bells and whistles, like ruffles and rosettes, can come off as cutesy, particularly on a tall person. 

Petite: Trumpet, sheath, and modified A-line gowns. Find a style with a waistline above your natural waist, to make the lower half of the dress (and therefore you) appear longer. The fabric is up to you―you can pull off a high sheen. But the detailing should be small (no huge bows) and limited to the bodice, to draw the eye upward. 
Be wary of dresses with a dropped waist, which will make your legs seem nonexistent, and ball gowns―it's easy to get lost in that voluminous skirt. Also, avoid anything calf-length, which will make your legs look short.

Pear: Halter dresses and off-the-shoulder styles can work in a pear-shaped bride's favor if she wants to create width at her shoulders, especially if the gown has a fuller skirt. A Queen Anne or sweetheart neckline with sleeves that can be padded or puffed will create the illusion of a stronger shoulder line. Bateau and portrait necklines are especially good for adding visual width. Square necklines also work well to create symmetry.
Some pear shapes want to balance their figures by wearing necklines that enhance the bust. Jewel necklines, high-collared illusion designs, and bateaus give the appearance of more fullness. Combined with a narrow waistline, these styles are quite flattering for pears who want to resemble hourglasses.
