Looking for wedding dresses can make you feel like you are trying to navigate a minefield of chiffon and lace without any direction! The last dress you want to end up with accidentally is one that makes you look heavier – especially if you’ve been spending the last few months in the gym sweating away to get ready for your big day.
The good news is there are wedding dress styles out there that can give you an instant slimming effect – no treadmill required! Anything that makes more time for wedding planning and less time in the gym has got to be a bonus!
A Mesmerising Mermaid
Brides with hourglass and pear-shaped figures should rejoice when they see mermaid wedding dresses – this style will make them look like a goddess! Mermaid wedding dresses are perfect for these figures as they pull in at the tummy, accentuating the small waistline of brides with these figures, and drawing attention to the décolletage area.
The flared style at the bottom of the gown also draws attention away from the legs – women with these figures tend to be thicker around the thighs, and this style de-emphasizes this area.
Magic – A Taller Torso!
For women that have shorter torsos, sometimes it feels that no amount of exercise or a flat tummy can make you look slimmer as you feel short. If that is an area that bothers you, there is some good news – there is a simple fix!
Wedding dresses with a dropped waist as well as a ruched bodice will instantly add length to a short torso with the added benefit of making the area look slimmer. A beautiful way this look can be achieved is with a satin ribbon around the waist of an A-line wedding dress – it’s feminine yet practical!
The Battle of the Breasts
Naturally large breasted women sometimes struggle to understand why other women choose to get implants! Not only are some yoga poses a complete pain (literally as well as figuratively) but they can also make you look heavier than you actually are!
If you’re a bride that wants to draw attention away from your bust, you would be surprised to know wedding dresses with a sweetheart neckline might be a good place to start. Ruched sweetheart necklines can actually create an illusionary effect of shrinking the breasts – when combined with an A-line shape it can even make you look taller!
Banish Broad Shoulders
If broad shoulders are the bane of your existence when it comes to shopping for wedding dresses, fear no more – we have a solution for you. Wedding dresses with capped sleeves with not only obscure broad shoulders, but they also look absolutely elegant!
Short or capped sleeves can be found on many different cuts of wedding dresses and give a very feminine edge to any design. From empire V-neck gowns to scoop-neck gowns, you will have no difficulty finding a dress that suits your figure and looks good with capped sleeves!
