Consider: Opt for simple shapes and silhouettes. If you are proud of your height then show it. The point is to emphasize your proportions. If you decided to choose a dress with long sleeves, then let them go past your wrists. Shorter sleeves will make others think that the wedding dress you are in was borrowed from a shorter lady.
Remember: Decorations and details should also be simple and straightforward. You are quite noticeable due to your height and you do not need any other more extravagant embellishments. If you want to look cute rather than elegant, you might try rosettes and ruffles. Do we think you need them? We don’t.
Consider: A gown with an open U-shaped neckline is an excellent solution. It will make your neck look longer plus open your face. The cut should not be too deep. Dresses with necklines that go across, on the contrary, will only make you look larger.
Remember: Sheeny fabrics should be avoided. The effect that organza, silk or satin give will add pounds and unwanted attention to your bust. Ruched details won’t help you look any slimmer either.
Consider: The so-called “Empire” dress is what plus-sized prides should look for. The skirt in such dresses begins just beneath the chest and has A-shape. Pleating of the material might spoil the look – you will remind of a pregnant woman in such a dress. A dress that is too loose will make you look larger.
Remember: Fabrics such as satin are highly recommended. This kind of material provides structure and play up your shape. Too flowy fabrics are not a good idea. If you want a more sensual look, add an embroidered shawl.
Consider: What you need is a gown that cinches at the narrowest part of your waistline and flares out. An A-shaped dress is perfect. You might want a bodice with ruche or laces. You will need these details to look slimmer. Another trick to use is to choose a dress with a V-cut neckline. The deeper, the better! Apple shaped ladies need at least one vertical line.
Remember: Trumpet dresses should be avoided. This type of dresses is straight all along and only flares out at the knees. Your legs are not a problem, while your midsection is.
Consider: A flared long skirt is the perfect shape for a wedding dress if your figure is pear-shaped. This type of skirts additionally demonstrates the narrow waistline and hides wider hips and thighs. It is great if the top has a V-cut.
Remember: A-line silhouette is well-known and is wonderful for special occasions during which you want to look chic, classy and elegant. If it is made from a casual material, such as raw-silk shantung or eyelet lace, you can dress it down.
Consider: If you feel you are not curvy enough, there are a few things you can do to look a little bit different. How about a sheath dress then? If the dress is cut on the bias, then you will look absolutely gorgeous. A nice ball dress that cinches in at the narrowest part of your waistline is also a good idea. Let the skirt be airy, flowy and long. This type of dresses will show how slender you are.
Remember: If your chest is not big enough, search for a “volumizing” bodice.
Consider: If you are a tiny bride, you have a lot of different styles to choose from. Sheath and trumpet are wonderful. So is a modified A-line gown. The skirt of the dress should start a bit above your natural waistline. In this case your legs will look longer. The variety of fabrics is quite wide as well. Even sheeny materials will look great on you. The only thing to avoid is large detailing, such as big bows.
Remember: Gowns with the waistline below your natural waist are out of the question. Avoid huge ball gowns if you do not want to look even shorter yet wider. Finally dresses that are calf-long do not compliment your legs either.
