					Things to Consider Before Shopping for Wedding Dresses

Although the modern times has opened a lot of possibilities to the brides
when it comes to wedding dresses, it has also created confusion because
of so many choices available.

To avoid choosing wrong wedding dresses, here are some considerations
brides-to-be must ponder upon:

1. Know your body type. This is very important because it will determine
if you would or wouldn’t look good in your dress. Since not all women are
created with perfect body figure, it is best to know your body type to
avoid highlighting your not-so-pleasant "assets."

For women who possess an hourglass figure, ideal wedding dresses are
bodices with corsets or two-piece items such as ball gowns to give
emphasis to their curves. Wedding dresses that have something that would
highlight the waist of the bride are also ideal. For women who are pear
shaped, one of the perfect options is Princess dresses with A-line cut.
This is very ideal because the style will hide the full hips and will
highlight the torso as well as the bust area of the bride. Petite women
should avoid ball gowns that are big as well as wedding dress with
mermaid cut because these only overwhelm the natural shape of the body.

Wedding dresses for women who have petite frame should be those that have
simple cuts and fabric type to make them look taller and slender. For
tall women who can carry majority of the dress styles out there, wedding
dresses with A- line cut, princess line cut, ball gowns, mermaid style,
and straight dresses are ideal wedding dresses. Although almost all
styles can fit tall women, they should avoid empire line dresses because
these can overemphasize their tall frame and can be too overwhelming
especially when paired with small sizes of wedding accessories.

For women who have full waist, drop waist and princess-line dresses are
the best because these flatter the curves of the waist. Women who have
broad shoulder should avoid wearing wedding dresses that are off-the-
shoulder and halter types because these will only make the broad shoulder
"broader." Opt for wedding dresses that don’t have straps or those that
have scoop necklines to enhance the shoulder and wear accessories or
jewelry that have intricate design. Brides that are that have flat bust
should choose wedding dresses that have square or scoop necklines that
will emphasize the bust area.

2. Know what are the dress shapes available in the market. After knowing
what is your body type, you should also familiarize yourself about the
different wedding dress shapes available out there because this can help
you decide which one will suit you best.

The most available dress shapes out there include straight wedding
dresses that have revealing and daring cuts and highlight to the body's
contour, A-line princess wedding dresses that is perfect for women who
want to hide something from the bust line down because it practically
covers everything from the bust line to the toes.
Empire wedding dresses which is practically an A-line dress except for
the seam that is strategically placed under the bust line to emphasize
some body shapes, strapless wedding dresses which are designed to reveal
the neck are shoulder areas.

Mermaid wedding dresses that are designed to fit from the waist area
until the knees before it comes with stylish flair down to the feet, and
ball gown wedding dresses that are practically two-piece items including
a full skit and fitted or corseted bodice.
