The dressmaker should be Able to tell you why a problem exists, and what can be done to fix it and If you see something that you do not like, mention it. There are some suggestions that can be your consideration in choosing a wedding dress.
If you have wide hips, you can always disguise it with a ball-gown or a flared skirt. Draw attention to your upper body and waist by choosing a gown with bodice detail, like beading or lace.
To look taller:
A dress with a high neckline will help you achieve a taller look. Short sleeved or sleeveless dresses with long gloves will elongate your appearance. An off-the-shoulder neckline flatters petite women. Be careful not to choose a dress that overwhelms you.
De-emphasize your height:
If you are tall, a drop waist and ruffles that wrap around the dress or a wide belt with a trim will take away the all legs look. Open and low necklines with billowy sleeves are also good. Hats or dramatic veiling are effective and will not overpower you.
If you’re too slender:
Add the illusions of extra pounds by choosing a heavier fabric such as velvet or satin. Choose narrow sleeves and a more filled out bodice with a gathered waist.
Thin and shorter brides:
You will get lost in big, ball gown styles. You may want to try them anyway. This will give you a feel for what you do not want as well as what you do want.
Choosing your gown is a wonderful experience. Allow yourself time to find the right gown for you and you will be gorgeous, happy, and comfortable on your wedding day.
If you are short-waisted, a gown that is fitted at the bodice and opening up gradually to a full skirt, will elegantly draw out your figure. A-line and drop waist bodices also help to create the illusion of an elongated torso.
To appear more slender:
A gown with a high waistline like an A-line dress will give you this illusion. You might want to consider the classic slim trick and choose to wear vertical lines. Scooped necklines are flattering but be sure to stay away from clingy fabrics, puffed sleeves, and lacy ruffles.
Larger sized brides will look beautiful in A-line dresses. Avoid body-hugging gowns, with or without a waistline, flaring from the knees or slightly above. You may also want to avoid bulky fabrics such as velvet and heavy satin, and clingy fabrics such as crepe and jersey. Opt instead for lighter fabrics such as silk shantung.
Pear shaped brides:
You might consider a strapless ball gown as this will cover your bottom half and highlight your better half. An off the shoulder neckline will make your top look more in proportion to your bottom.
De-emphasize your bustline:
A V-neck or high neckline with a keyhole yoke is ideal. Avoid empire or cinched waists, they accentuate larger breasts. A straight skirt or fitted bodice will flatter your figure.
