Styling Tips For Plus Size Brides

Identify Your Body Shape

Before checking out the different stunning wedding gown styles, it is crucial to identify and understand your body shape so that you can pick out the perfect dress that enhances your gorgeous figure. Do you have pear-shaped body with a smaller bust and wider hips? Or perhaps you identify more with an apple shape where your waist is the widest part of your body?  Or maybe you have an hourglass figure with a balanced bust and waist? Or a rectangle shaped body with fairly even measurements throughout? Knowing your shape helps if you are looking to create a particular look or silhouette.

How To Create A Balanced and Defined Silhouette

Having a defined and balanced silhouette will differ from bride to bride. Some brides may want an exaggerated bust or smaller hip, while others won't. If you have a smaller bust, you may want to opt for a sweetheart neckline or a dress with detailing on the bodice, to add volume in all the right places. If you have larger bust, a dress with V-neckline or plunge style may elongate your upper body. If you have an apple or rectangle shape body, you may want to add volume to the waist by choosing a dress that cinches at the waist. A fit-and-flare gown can accentuate the waist of a pear-shaped body.

Use The Right Undergarments

The right undergarments can easily transform your bridal look. Having the right foundation can enhance the fit and appearance of your wedding gown. You may want to consider wearing seamless shapewear to smooth out yours silhouette and ensure comfort all day. Not forgetting, a well-fitted bra will be able to offer excellent support and enhance your decolletage.
