One of the greatest aspects of being a bride without a doubt is going wedding dress shopping, and finding that perfect wedding gown that takes your breath away as you stand swaying from side to side, dreamily gazing in the bridal wear shops mirror. Most good quality bridal wear shops will have friendly and approachable assistants who are happy to help find you the dress that wows you. It’s always better for all brides to choose a wedding dress shop that has a large selection of dresses to try on, in a variety of sizes.
Most brides will have concerns about some part of their body. Whether you are self-conscious about your arms, or want to draw attention to your best feature, there is a wedding dress out there for every bride. This article is going to focus on smaller busted brides wanting to look a little bustier, or simply balance out your figure.
Firstly, if you are a bride who is concerned about finding something that flatters and gives an illusion of shape to your small busted figure then don’t panic. Bridal wear shop assistants are experts, and any assistants worth spending your time and money with, will be able to point you in the right direction to find you the perfect wedding gown that accentuates your body shape where you want it to and creates the perfect silhouette.
By choosing a wedding dress that has more embellishments or ruching to the bodice, you can immediately add volume and shape to the bust area. This can be achieved in a variety of ways. Either by careful fabric choice, using rich sculpted satins, deep folded silks, ruched chiffon, tulle, draped loose fabric or layered lace, or by adding embellishments be it intricate beading, dazzling diamante or pretty patterning, you can create an illusion of a bigger bust. Emphasizing your waist with a fitted bodice and fuller shaped skirt, will hide your hips so it isn’t as obvious if they are wider than your bust. A line skirts and ball gowns will also create a lovely shape by cinching in your waist. Empire wedding dresses may not be an obvious choice, but if your bust, waist and hips are all more or less the same, this style dress emphasizes your bust and as the fabric hides your waist and hips, you can’t tell that you don’t go in and out quite as much as some brides!
Alternatively there are many stunning cheap wedding dresses out there with built in corsets to add curves, and there is always the option of some fabulous lingerie to give you curves where you want them…some can even alter your cup size by several inches!
