How to select the ideal Bridal gown?
The easiest and the best way to pick out a wedding gown is to base it on your cocktail dress that you have received loads of compliments in. Plus size women are all usually categorized under one category. Just like the average sized woman, remember that even plus sized women have different body shapes. The trick lies in knowing how to flatter what you love about yourself and conceal what you don’t wish to show the world.
A common misconception is that empire waist gowns look great on plus sized women. Empire waist gowns do have their advantages and work wonderfully in concealing a heavy figure but at times may also work to emphasize a full body. Empire waists always highlight the bust line of a woman and those with full chests may not be comfortable in it. Similarly those with stomachs may not be comfortable in it.
Remember that there are choices in plus size gowns too. Halter necks and empire waists are just a few of them. A great idea would be to take some tips from plus size celebrities.
