Lets be honest, we all know what suits us, we all know what doesn’t..but we get engaged, start to look for our wedding gown and we lose confidence in everything we have learned about ourselves.
I absolutely do not advocate ‘slimming’ for your wedding day..the person you love proposed to you as you are right now because they are in love with you. I do believe in being healthy, taking care of yourself and ‘loving’ yourself in the healthiest way possible so if you want to feel better about yourself on your wedding day take yourself to the gym, run, walk, do yoga..all great things for life but do it for you.
We all come in different shapes and sizes and thank the heavens for that! How dull would my creative life be, or anybodies for that matter if we all came in One Size Fits All!
As in any item of clothing some shapes and styles suit some body shapes better than others, its important to wear what suits you so that you feel comfortable and beautiful on your wedding day.
An enviable shape, of some of the most beautiful women. You pretty much have the pick of the bunch when it comes to styles.
Think Scarlett Johanssen, Sophia Loren or Marilyn Monroe.
For the most suitable, you should look at Straight Gowns, Ball Gowns and the Mermaid Style.
This means your shoulders, hips and waist are similar in size.
You are in good company with beautiful women such as Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Short styles, straight lines and A-line would be good for you.
The Inverted Triangle
This refers to women with broad shoulders that can be wider than their hips.
Rene Zellweger, Naomi Campbell, Teri Hatcher & Demi Moore seem to happily dress this body shape.
The ballgown, shorter styles and the mermaid would be good for you.
Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Alicia Keyes are all rocking this gorgeous sexy shape.
The A-line, Ballgown & Princess Styles are excellent to compliment your curves.
Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Hudson, Drew Barrymore can all show you great examples of dressing this curvy body shape.
You should start with the complimentary Princess Line, Straight & Empire Line.
Whatever your body shape ensure your gown fits you properly so that you are comfortable. Be led by how you feel and try to avoid listening to everyones advice unless its your designer talking! Sometimes family, the people that love us won’t give us honest advice because they don’t want to hurt our feelings.
