Which Wedding Dresses Flatter Your Body Best?
When it comes to wedding dresses, there’s nothing like a one size-fits all. Women come in very diverse and beautiful body shapes and sizes. That’s why designers create wedding dresses that have different silhouettes, trains and necklines to suit each figure.
Choose the wrong neckline and you’ll look top heavy or feel uncomfortable the entire time. It’s simple to find a wedding gown with the perfect neckline. You just need to understand your body type and check out the different styles of wedding dresses made for you.
Let’s look at the most common necklines and the differences between them.
Strapless necklines look beautiful with a medium bust and a long neck or well toned arms you want to show off. If you have a very full bust, this neckline may not offer you the support you really need.
This neckline has a single strap that runs across the front. It’s a nice style if you feel like accentuating your beautiful shoulders.
This is the perfect neckline for a conservative bride. It offers extra coverage for those brides who don’t want to show off too much skin. You can use a sheer or lace overlay to show off just a hint of skin underneath the fabric. Avoid this style if you are well endowed because it may make the bust area look even bigger.
Off the shoulder neckline
It’s perfect because it accentuates your neck and collarbone. It sweeps across the chest following the lien of the collarbone. It is perfect for women with narrow shoulders. If you have broad shoulders or a large bust, it will draw attention to them so it’s best to avoid this neckline.
Halter necklines are not so common in wedding gowns but they can look amazing if you have well toned arms and you are petite. Perfect if you have slim hips or an underarm pouch you want to hide. Avoid it if you have larger hips and a larger bust.
This neckline emphasizes your cleavage and stunning wedding jewelry. If you would like to show some cleavage and you have a larger bust, this could be the best neckline for you. If you have a smaller bust, you’ll need a good padded bra to emphasize what you got. If you have a very small bust, avoid this neckline.
The Sweetheart neckline looks perfect on different body types as it forms a heart shape that gives you a sweet and romantic look. You need to accessorize well because the sweetheart emphasizes on the central panel of your neck.
