Empire Waist Wedding Dress

When looking for a wedding dress, you may want to consider the benefits of the empire waist wedding dress. This type of dress is unique in that it its narrowest just below the bust. From there, it flares out allowing anything under this region, such as the waist and hips, to be well hidden or at least mostly masked. You will find this type of dress readily available through most dress manufacturers and designers since it is so popular.

There are some people who will benefit the most from this style of dress. Specifically, those who are full figured will be flattered by the contours of this particular design of wedding dress. For those who are full figured, another option is to consider the A line dress. This gives the body a longer look and does not draw any attention to the waistline. That again can help to conceal areas of the body like the hips, rear and hips from being noticeable or at least a draw.

Not Full Coverage

One thing to keep in mind when you are a plus sized bride is that you do not necessarily have to cover up all of your skin just because you feel it needs to be hidden. In fact, many women make this mistake, believing that they just cannot show anything. When you wear an empire waist wedding gown, you will notice that you look slimmer and that the areas of your body that are exposed do also have a thinner look. Therefore, unless it is against your religious beliefs, there is nothing wrong with choosing a lower cut neckline and allowing your shoulders and arms to be exposed.
