The desire to be the centre of attraction on your wedding day may compel you to go for a strapless wedding dress because it looks flattering and inspiring. While strapless gowns are supposed to give the bride a quintessential look, they may not necessarily be the right choice for everyone.
Here are important dynamics that you need to understand before choosing a strapless gown for your wedding.
Every bride has a unique neck length, bust and shoulder line. A strapless wedding dress requires a well-balanced bust line for support. A full bust line is the most ideal for this gown style. For small busted brides, Bateau and high neck styles work best.
Brides with hourglass, triangle and pear body shapes look stunning in a strapless wedding dress. For those with an inverted triangle body shape, this bridal dress style may not be their ideal choice.
A strapless wedding dress should have a fitting waistline to help it stay up and retain its overall structure. A fitting waistline saves you the humiliation of pulling up your gown every now and then.
Normally, strapless wedding dresses are tight on the bust line to ensure they stay up. Even so, you shouldn’t buy the dress before you try it on. Most likely you are going to have it on all through the day, which is why it has to be comfortable.
Avoid Skimpy Dresses
With a strapless wedding dress, you will have to contend with the possibility of looking skimpy. There’s also the issue of spillover cleavage, especially for busty brides. Not to mention the embarrassing armpits situation.
