BEST BETS FOR FULLER FIGURED BRIDES

I've been giving a lot of thought to fuller figures this week, hoping to incorporate more into the collections this 2018. When I actually got down and started sketching, it was surprising how many options already exist. My most important piece of advice: If you have pleasing curves and/or a full bust, focus on empathizing these attributes the Great Masters have painted for centuries. Think Rubenesque rather than heavy, realizing you can carve out your own special style niche. 
GO FOR:

*An empire waist. It looks great on you. It plays down a thick midriff and hides big hips and bottom.


*A ball gown. Even if you have full breasts, some tummy, rounded hips and bottom you can wear a ball gown well as long as there's a determined waistline. The voluminous skirts hide the tummy, bottom and hips, focusing on a nipped in waist. .

*Low, wide necklines. Consider the scoop, sweetheart, keyhole and V-neck, all of which empathize your cleavage and decolletage.

*Long and fitted sleeves, preferably in lightweight fabrics to make your arms look slimmer.

*Basque waists atop either an A-line or ball gown slim you out.

*The trapeze or tent style; one of your best options.


PASS UP:

*Any gown with massive embellishment and go for clean lines and fabrics like crepe, matte satin and shantung; they even your body out. Pass up any weighty fabric like brocade or velvet that add bulk in the folds and seams. Ditto the heavily beaded laces and organzas.

*shiny fabrics like satin. High shine magnifies volume. .

*Mermaid, evening gown and sheath silhouettes; all too form-fitting for your figure.

*Three-quarter length and big puffy sleeves. Don’t even think about shoulder pads!



* Off the shoulder necklines. Full-figures usually have broad shoulders and arms and this neckline adds volume there.
