Choosing a wedding dress not only to your liking but also to your figure is a very important task. After all, you will be the main decoration of this festive day.
The princess silhouettes.
Dossier: The most wedding dress of all wedding dresses! We dreamed of such in our childhood and drew inept strokes in the first grade in the margins of notebooks. Then our ideas of beauty changed, and not once, but still corset bodice and puffed skirt are and remain a wedding classic for all time. That’s why no wedding designer has ever dared to declare such a dress out of fashion, it always finds a place among basic models.
Special requirements: Despite the obvious and clear silhouette structure, the princess dress has a number of requirements for the figure and, above all, for height. On the one hand, the cut-off waistline would seem to add to the height, but the puffy skirt negates this effect. Therefore, the height should be medium or high. If you’re petite and you want exactly such a dress to choose it from JA wedding dresses professionals, you can get out of the situation by wearing heels, but you will have to spend the whole evening in them, so you may want to choose not a stiletto, but a more stable option. A nice bonus: the brads in a princess dress can be of any volume.
Dossier: The “mermaid” dress is one of the most spectacular and most demanding models. This is a silhouette dress, which fits tightly around the hips and slightly narrows to the knees, and then begins the most interesting – the bottom of the skirt widens and flares, forming an inverted bell-shaped and somewhat resembling a tail, which is actually why this model is called the “mermaid” or the “fish. In fashion science such a cut is called “godet”.
Special requirements: for this skirt model, the hips should not be full or thin, but ideal. On the one hand, too straight thigh and flattened buttocks in the profile will give at once the effect of “absence”, that is the supposed by the dress seductive curves will be left without “natural data”. A puffy hip, on the contrary, will give heaviness to the whole figure. And again, get ready to wear heels all night long – because of the accentuated line of the hips your legs may seem shorter.
Dossier: It is not difficult to imagine this model: the noticeable fit in the chest and waist from the thigh zone begins to loosen. The skirt is smoothly widening to the bottom without any abrupt fluctuations in width and volume. Traditionally, A-silhouette is considered to be a classic and almost a win-win. And such universality does not depend on the fabric the dress is made in – it looks equally good in lace and dense texture.
Special considerations: as usual the A-silhouette dress is very delicate on the hips and emphasizes the waist. If there is an additional accent on the waist, for example, ribbon or cut line (in cut off at the waist models), the same method visually extends legs and does not change the proportions of height, so to change the shoes during the celebration from beautiful to comfortable can be without problems.
Dossier: The Grecian silhouette of gowns always takes pride of place among the understatedly elegant bridal fashions. The cropped bodice and the cut under the chest make the brides look like the ancient goddesses of Mount Olympus. It was the associative connection with Hellas and the garments of its beautiful divas that gave the name to the dress model. And also, such silhouettes enjoyed unprecedented success with Hollywood divas during the Golden Era of the Dream Factory.
Special requirements: because of the displaced above the norm waistline legs in a Greek dress look obscenely long and the height seems to be higher. The pluses of the dress do not end there: a moderate volume of the skirt perfectly hides both too straight and too steep hips. But this model also has limitations, they concern the shoulder line and the bust. Before choosing a Greek dress, make sure that you have not too broad shoulders, not too big breasts and in general, the figure is not large. Otherwise, all the extra volume will only increase and create disharmony.
Dossier: No, it’s not red and it’s not polka dots. The name “carmen” reminds us of traditional Andalusian silhouettes. Flamenco dancers burn our hearts in similarly shaped outfits. But if you look at the “Karmen” dress in the context of wedding fashion, it will certainly be more solemn and austere: the flounces on it are optional, but the shoulder area will certainly remain open. The form of the dress somewhat resembles a “mermaid” dress, only with a looser design of the hips.
Special requirements: this option will really help those who have their eye on a mermaid dress, but want a looser fit. The only thing not to forget is the shoulders. They are in the “Spanish” dress are in the spotlight. In addition, the “Carmen” neckline will visually slightly expand this area. Think whether you can afford such a silhouette – in the literal sense. However, in recent times, designers began to break the rules in our favor, and now there are models with wide straps, they just visually narrow the shoulders. Wonderful news for the beautiful brides!
