Wedding Dresses: Different Kinds and Shapes
The wedding dress is indeed among the salient factors to consider in planning a wedding. The bride’s choice for her wedding dress should bring out best assets and it must also conform to the shape of her body.
One common style is the hourglass which has a tight waist, a bursting middle and a defined top. Sometimes, the dress is fully decorated with complete embroidery or just be plain and simple. To emphasize her sexy body, the bride with large bust, full hips and thin waist should opt this style of wedding dress.
If the bride wants a very classic design, the A-line cut is for her. Since the dress appears like the letter ‘A’, hence it’s name the A-line cut. 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.
Looking like a mermaid’s tail is the mermaid shaped style wedding dress. A particular trait of this dress is it flares out at the knees but has a narrow top. The fishtail wedding dress resembles the mermaid dress but its distinguishing feature is that it has a longer train. 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.
One dress that fits tightly is the sheath wedding dress having a hem stopping just above the knees. To show off the sexy figure of a woman but not showing too much detail, simple materials are often used to produce this type of dress. This is a good choice of dress style to place emphasis on long legs and slender hips.
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. Because of the dividing line in the fabric, the breast appears to be larger and the bride also looks thinner in this dress.
A type of wedding dress that looks like an evening dress is the column or straight cut dress, however, it is white instead of black. Brides feel good wearing this dress design because chances are they have already worn a dress with this shape already. However, if the dress is designed using soft or thin fabric, it can show bumps or lumps because there is no underskirt. For a bride with a proportioned figure, she can wear this dress gracefully particularly in a formal wedding.
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 gives the look of a princess in a fairy tale. The best wearers of this dress are the tall and slim young brides for the highlighted hips and volume of the skirt makes them look a little smaller.
