What Wedding Dress Suits Your Body Type?

By Linda Robbins

Indeed, weddings and other exclusive occasions are a big cause for celebration, especially for women and girls. That is not only because these events are significant and joyful in themselves; but also since they give women, ladies, as well as little girls the freedom to dress to impress!

For most ladies, picking what dress to wear is such a sweet sorrow, regardless of whether one has to choose between a wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, ROM dresses, or cocktail dresses according to the occasion. The type of occasion, however, is hardly ever the top-of-mind consideration of women in picking that dress. Most of the time, it's their current body shape which determines what style, sometimes even colour, would suit best for the event. For those who have not quite mastered the skill of choosing dresses that show off what needs flaunting and hide what needs hiding, here is a definitive guide to help you.

For women with a small bust size, the empire-cut dress is the right choice as its below-the-bust seam and high waistline flatter the upper body and add height too. Meanwhile, women who wish to draw less attention to big thighs and hips must pick an A-line dress. This style draws attention into the waist instead.

The V-neck dress, meanwhile, also puts in more height to petite women. Skirts which are above the knee do the same, particularly if paired with high heels. Women who want to look thinner must ditch printed fabric and excessive details and go for the simple ones instead. Loud prints, especially if done in loud colours as well, add considerable weight to the body compared with a plain-coloured dress that gives a flowing feel.

So once you find yourself searching for that perfect ROM dress Singapore or the best bridesmaid dresses for your wedding, bring along your bridesmaids with you. The best possible way to go is to choose an identical colour but to allow your bridesmaids to go for the style they want, perhaps with words of wisdom from your bridal gown shop regarding the best styles for every one of them. Remember, apart from looking beautiful, your muses have to feel comfortable too!
