Choose A Wedding Dress That Suits Your Physique

You probably have several considerations to make as you choose your wedding dress. Who wouldn’t want to have one that is trending? Or one that suits your desired venue and décor? Plus, if all that fits perfectly within your budget, you just hit the jackpot! It goes without saying that each of these factors is essential.

However, as the saying goes, “cut your coat according to your cloth.” With a wedding dress, your physique needs to be at the top of your list of considerations. What’s the use of a spectacular dress that just doesn’t accentuate your features? Here is some advice if you need a plus-size wedding dress:

When you embark on your wedding dress search, first identify what assets you want to accentuate. If you love your shoulders then opt for a strapless or off-the-shoulder number. If you love your decolletage, then take the plunge with a deep-v neckline. If you want to show off those legs, go for a mini dress or a gown with a daring high slit. Then, let waist-cinching fabrics, glamorously slimming ruched bodices, and curve-skimming silhouettes do the rest!

From slip dresses to ballgowns to flirty frocks, it’s time to celebrate your curves with the best plus size wedding dresses for every style and budget. Read more at Brides…

Maggie Sotero, Zandrina: The perfect plus-size design that makes Cinderella look shady.


As a short bride, you may be feeling like you are at a disadvantage of sorts. Maybe all the designs you seem to love are for taller people. Well, you can find the perfect design for your petite self. Find out how in the following post:

When it comes to shopping for your perfect petite wedding gown, the first rule of thumb is to avoid dresses with excess material. Though every girl dreams of that beautiful, Cinderella-like wedding dress, a petite frame will drown in puffy princess-style gowns.

The key is to keep things simple to ensure your figure is not overwhelmed. Avoid overly elaborate dresses with beading or large bows. You should also choose a simpler, shorter veil, such as a birdcage. Though chapel-length veils look stunning, they may overwhelm a smaller frame.

When it comes to bridal dresses for shorter ladies, the length is not the only thing that matters. You also want to ensure that the proportions on your dress are in line with your own as well. Any dress can be hemmed to your height, but a fitted bodice designed for someone 5’6” and up won’t properly fit someone who is 5’1” or under. However, selecting a flattering silhouette sets the foundation for a smooth round of alterations down the line. Read more at Galia Lahav…

Remember, there are silhouettes that can make you look taller. So go for those ones. In addition, pick the fabric that you are most comfortable in. It’s going to be a full day in your gown and you need to enjoy being in it.

If you are tall, it may seem easier for you since most models are tall too. What tips would help you to get the best wedding dress regardless? Here are some of them:

  1. A custom-made gown makes sense

An excellent idea for tall brides is to purchase a custom-fitted wedding gown. You’ll find that better bridal outlets can design a custom-made gown, made to fit your specific measurements. This may be the only way you can be sure of a perfect fit. After all, you’re not an off-the-rack height. Why would you expect an off-the-rack wedding dress to fit?

  1. Consider your heel height

Choose your heel height before shopping for your wedding gown, so that you can see how much extra length you may need on the skirt of the dress. Typically, there’ll be standard options, such as 3″, 5″, or 7″. Always err on the side of too long, because a gown can be hemmed up, but not usually let down. Read more at Cocomelody…
