Todays post is going to be about identifying your shape as s plus size woman with a focus on wedding fits. Who is excited???. Before I continue though, I would like to send a huge shout out to my 2016 brides to be in the house*drum roll* loll. Okay, so lets jump right into the post. There is one question that people always often ask me and it is “ how do you find what’s right for you to wear and how do you stay fab” and I simply just tell them that the secret is to knowing your body type. When you know your body type, you would be able to immediately point out what would look good on you and what to stay away from. We have a variety of clothing items to shop from but we must always know that it’s not everything that would suit you/ your body type so you should try as much as possible to know and find what suits us and leave the others on the rack. I would blog about that in a different post but for today I’m going to focus on finding the right wedding fit for your body type. I really get so excited seeing plus size brides! I don’t know if its just me.(just had to drop that in real quick)
There are 7 types of shapes;
Hour glass -The curves are striking and proportionate.
Diamond – The waist is fuller than the burst and hips.
Figure eight – The body is both curvaceous and voluptuous.
Rectangle – They have proportionate hips, balanced thighs, shapy legs, slightly fuller arms and a body frame.
Pear (Triangle) – The burst and upper body is relatively smaller than the hips and also a defined waistline that creates a distant curvature.
Oval (Apple) – The waist is fuller than the burst and hips.
Inverted triangle – The burst is fuller and shoulders broader than the defined waist.
WEDDING DRESS TIP FOR DIFFERENT BODY TYPES
Pear shaped (Triangle)
A dress that gradually flares out in an A formation from the natural waist to the floor, highlighting the narrowness of the midsection and floating away from the hips and thighs.
A Spaghetti – strap bodice or a V neckline will also showcase a more slender upper body.
A dress with a scooped neckline. It will open up the face without showing too much cleavage.
Always choose a strapless gown that has a slight dip along the neckline rather than a style that goes straight across (which makes the burst appears larger).
A dress that clinches in at the smallest point on the waistline, then flares out in a gradual A-shape. The most slenderizing neckline is one with a deep V.
A ball gown that clinches in at the waist and descends into a full, flowing floor length dress.
A fit and flare dress with a V- neck is perfect.
Hope you ladies enjoyed this post and I hope you learnt a thing or two as well. Until the next post, its bye ladies!
