FINDING THE RIGHT WEDDING DRESS FOR YOUR BODY TYPE

Fashion

Wedding dresses today come in a wide range of styles. Do you prefer a long, flowing gown, or a short, flirty one? Long sleeves, or no sleeves? Lots of lace, or timelessly smooth satin? Modern bridal gowns come in styles to suit every preference — and every body type.

Naturally, you want to look your best on your wedding day, but nothing can ruin your look — and your wedding photos — faster than the wrong gown. It’s so important to choose a gown that flatters your figure. If you want to pick the right gown, you’ll need to understand which styles of wedding gown work best for your body type.

A-LINE

A-line wedding dresses look good on almost any body type. That’s why they’re so popular. They’re especially flattering on pear-shaped women, since they accentuate the bust and hide the larger hips and thighs. If you’re looking for flattering plus size wedding dresses, you may find an A-line gown flattering. You may also want to try a gown with an empire waistline that begins just beneath the bust and flows downward in an A-line silhouette. If you’re plus-sized and busty, an A-line or empire dress may flatter your décolletage; but if you’d prefer something a little less revealing, you can always add a modest lace panel to the bust line, or look for an A-line dress with a higher cut at the bust.

If you’re plus-sized and apple-shaped, you may want to look for a shorter A-line dress that flatters your bust and midsection while allowing you to show off your slim legs. Look for an A-line gown with a belt or cinch at the waist and a textured bodice that will draw the eye upward. A deep V neckline will also flatter your midsection.

BALL GOWN

With their full, fluffy skirts, cinched waists, and fitted bodices, ball gowns are perfect for brides with boyish, rectangular body shapes. The curvy shape of the dress will make your body seem curvier, too. Look for a dress with a ruched or otherwise decorated bodice. Extra fabric up top will complete the illusion of curves, especially if it is a strapless dress that limits your choice of bust-enhancing bras.

MERMAID

A mermaid gown hugs the figure until about the knee, then flares out into a skirt reminiscent of a mermaid’s tail. Mermaid-style wedding gowns are an excellent choice for women with hourglass figures, since this style of gown showcases your curves. Choose a gown with a scooped neckline, for a more natural and flattering décolletage which is neither too revealing nor too shelf-like. But avoid gowns with shiny fabric, ruching, or other ornamentation on the bodice, as these will make your already-generous bust look even bigger.

TRUMPET

The trumpet gown is similar to the mermaid gown, but with a wider flare to the skirt. While form-fitting, the trumpet gown also offers more freedom of movement to the hourglass-shaped bride who wants to show off her curves. Trumpet gowns can also help a petite bride look taller.

SHEATH

A sleek and form-fitting style, the sheath dress follows the body’s natural curves. It can be flattering for women with hourglass-shaped bodies, who want to accentuate their curves. It’s also a good choice for petite women, as it can add the illusion of height, and it’s a great style for any bride who wants to show off a trim midsection. A sheath dress in a wispy fabric with a skirt cut on the bias can make a rectangle-shaped bride look curvier, too.

DROP WAIST

With a flare beginning at the hips, the drop waist style is a good choice for women with hourglass-shaped bodies and trim midsections. Combined with a sleek bodice and scooped neckline, this style of gown can show off your curves without being too restrictive.

A WORD ON SKIRT AND SLEEVE LENGTH

While the classic wedding gown has a long, flowing skirt and even a train, gowns with short skirts are all the rage right now, and these gowns can look fabulous on the right bride. No matter your dress size, a wedding gown with a short skirt can be the right choice to show off shapely calves. If you’re tall, however, a long, flowing skirt will match your natural, statuesque proportions. A long-sleeved dress also works well for a tall bride. Choose a gown with sleeves that go below the wrist, so that you don’t look like you’re dressing up in your mother’s clothes. See-through lace sleeves can lend a timeless elegance to your gown, without entirely sacrificing the graceful look of a sleeveless gown.

When choosing a wedding dress, it’s vital that you consider your body type and shape. Whether you’re petite or tall, apple- or hourglass-shaped, the right dress can make you look gorgeous on your wedding day.

Victoria Swarovski Got Married in a $1.3 Million Dress

Fashion

Being the heiress of one of the biggest jewelry and crystal companies in the world definitely has its perks. Victoria Swarovski married her long-time boyfriend wearing a $1.3 million worth dress. She dated Werner Mürz, a property investor, for almost seven years before tying the knot on Friday.

The breath-taking dress is a creation of the designer Michael Cinco, whose work is mostly based in Dubai. The fairytale gown was embedded with believe it or not 500.000 Swarovskicrystals. If you’ve ever dreamed of being a princess bride, Victoria just gave you the perfect example. Cinco made sure that she got a unique dress that weighs 46kg. Victoria took a big part in the process of designing the amazing gown. The original dress is actually a part of Michael’s Spring/Summer 2017 Collection. The designer altered it by adding sleeves to the gown and of course a humongous amount of crystals. The train of the dress, according to Michael is six meters long and is also bedazzled with crystals.

The gorgeous dress features a massive and voluminous A-line skirt, with a semi-transparent upper part, and long sleeves with floral embroidery. Her astonishing veil was eight meters long and she wore it over her face while walking down the aisle. Victoria chose a beautiful pair of white high-heeled sandals by Jimmy Choo. She finished off the look with semi-hoop earrings embedded with diamonds. The bride reportedly changed into one more dress, as sparkling and as glamorous as the first one. It was a silver strapless dress, decorated with what else than Swarovski crystals.

The wedding ceremony took place in the Cathedral of San Giusto in Trieste, Italy. The celebration lasted three whole days. On the first night, Victoria wore a breath-taking Michael Cinco red dress. The halter-neck dress featured a high-low skirt and was encrusted with ruby-red crystals. The glamorous gala happened at the luxurious Falisia Resort & Spa, and it was a red and white themed party where men were requested to wear white suits, while women were supposed to wear red dresses.

HALIMA ADEN ON WEARING HER HIJAB

In her interview, Halima opens up about whether wearing a hijab impacts her negatively. “I had friends who weren’t wearing it, and they went through bullying, too. It was a tough time — everyone just wanted to be mean.” And today? “If you think people are against you and that you’re a target, things will start appearing that way. I just go about my day, and I don’t think anyone is out to get me.”
