If you are still in the in search of the perfect gown, you are in the right place! This whole week, I will be featuring wedding dresses that will help you decide what to wear on the big day!
The halterneck features straps that join at the back of the neck. It usually has a very low-cut back. This style looks good on brides with great shoulders!
The scoop is a U-shaped neckline, often cut quite low and echoed on the back of the dress. This is a style that suits any bride.
The broad, sweeping off-the-shoulder neckline features small sleeves or straps that sit just below the shoulder on the upper arm, showing off the shoulders and collarbone. It is good for curves and for medium-to full-chested brides, but not ideal for those with wide shoulders.
The strapless bodice is usually figure-hugging, often with a straight or subtly-shaped neckline. This style is good for those with broad shoulders.
The V-neck dips down to a V-shape at the front, which draws attention away from the bust line. The back may be similar. This style suits brides with a medium bust.
The jewel neckline is round and high cut, sitting near the base of the throat. This style is good for small-busted brides and those wishing to cover up their upper chest and collarbones.
Here are the final tips!
If you are tall and thin, you could choose a ball gown with a strapless, fitted bodice.
However, if you feel your shoulders are too bony or that your collarbones protrude too much, go for a fitted dress, perhaps with high neckline.
If you are short with a fuller, feminine figure, try an empire-line dress. The beauty of this style is that it has a seam under the bust line and then just flows down. Although a knee-length dress could work for you, this longer shape will give you a nice silhouette.
If you have full or wide hips, you can try the A-line style. It will disguise larger hips by creating a triangle on the lower half of your body.
Even the ball gown look, in quite a simple material, will draw attention away from the hips. The empire line will work, too, if your bust is a bit smaller, but could end up downplaying your waist and stomach area.
