Bridesmaids Plus Size
Your friend or relative is getting matrimonial and you have been asked to be a bridesmaid. You ar a full-figured woman with curves and a desire to wear a bridesmaid dress that flatters. You wonder what cuts and designs ar flattering to your body. Here ar some tips to help you leverage a beautiful and flattering look.
First, if the bride isn’t aware, tell her non all bridesmaids have identical figures and can wear the same style dress. A common practice is the selection of the color by the bride, but different styles of dress so each bridesmaid flatters herself and the bride. Also a mixture of short and long dresses can compliment women adding elegance to the wedding party.
Full figured women types
When a woman is full-figured she normally has a body shape of three types:
• Hourglass figure where her hips and shoulders ar approximately the same size
• Pear-shaped figure where her weight is carried in her hips and thighs
• Rounded figure where her weight is carried in the middle of her body
No matter the body shape, certain fashion accents or styles will be unflattering to a full-figured woman. Wearing horizontally intentional dresses will draw unwanted attention to the widest area of a woman’s body. Clingy and tightly fitted dresses will draw attention to every bulge and bump on a plus-sized woman.
Dresses should be one color as two or more colours will be unflattering. Symmetrical hemlines on dresses and the use of vertical draping will blandish a woman with up and down looks, non straight across. Dresses can be flowing layers, but layers must be to a minimal to avoid fashion disasters. The fabric type and weight should match the dress and season.
Wearing a dress that is a size or so bigger does non help a woman appear smaller. A larger dress creates the illusion a woman is formless and bigger than her actual size. Strapless dresses are unflattering unless they fit perfectly and do non create bulges above the top lines of the dress.
Waistlines can be:
• Empire-styled that draws attention upward from the smallest part of the waist
• A-line that is fitted at the bodice and flows outward
• Pleated or collected in a diagonal crisscross crosswise the waist
These waistlines create a flattering look for plus-sized bridesmaids.
Busty women should seek dresses that:
• Accommodate supportive undergarments
• Fit correctly to avoid bulges and a squeezed-in look
• Contain wider straps to hide undergarment straps
• Use round, sweetheart or v-necked styled necklines
• Provide a soft womanly look
Flattering sleeves are:
Arms on plus-sized women require a becoming look.
• the 3/4 sleeve
• the buoyant sleeve
• petal sleeves with slits
• the elbow sleeve
• sleeves reminiscent of kimono-type dress
Sleeves that ar flowing will add balance to full-figures. Sleeveless dresses blandish women with perfect arms and shoulders.
Flattering arm covers
A final suggestion is the use of arm covers that ar flattering.
Popular items are:
• bolero jackets
• shawl jackets
• laciniate shawls
• gossamer shawls
As a plus-sized bridesmaid, you can look beautiful by following these simple tips. Your selection of a dress will flatter your figure and avoid a fashion disaster on this important day.
