Tips for flattering your figure on the big day:
Every bride wants to look and feel her best on her big day, but with all the wedding planning sometimes it’s tough to stick as closely as you want to your workout plan. Luckily, there are a few easy shortcuts you can take to look trim in your wedding dress without hitting the gym every day or driving yourself crazy with dieting.
Your best style:
Though alterations guarantees your dress fits, choosing a wedding gown that shows off your best assets will make sure it flatters your shape. If you’re trying to hide your hips, go with an empire waist gown. If you want to suck it all in, a corseted ball gown is a great option to show off your small waist. If you’re looking to show off your curves, go with a mermaid style dress. A good style for all body types is an A-line gown.
To avoid bra bulge and create the right amount of cleavage there are a few options. Bra cups are very nice and they make it easy on your wedding day. There are no worries about lines or straps showing due to the cups being sewn into the dress. If you would prefer to wear a bra, consider having a professional fit you to ensure you are wearing the right size. If possible wear a nude colored bra that will hide nicely under your wedding gown. If any part of the lower half of your gown is fitted, invest in some Spanx. They’re lightweight, breathable, and come in tons of styles to work under all gown types.
Shoes and Pictures:
Wearing the right shoes can really slim the figure down. Think about it…wearing heals automatically makes you taller therefore giving an effect of nice long legs. It’s not just about having longer legs though; heels instantly trick the eye into reapportioning your weight over a taller frame. If you’re worried about your feet hurting skip the stilettos and go for something with more support, like a wedge. In addition to the right shoes taking the right poses in photographs can make the body look smaller. Try to avoid squaring straight up to the camera. If possible be at an angle from the camera. This gives the body a smaller shape.
