When it comes to trying on wedding dresses it can be a minefield. There are so many shapes, necklines, sleeves or no sleeves, Ivory, white, champagne, lace, tulle, Satin...the list goes on. We have been in the business for a looooong time and we have met and dressed hundreds of brides so we like to think we know a bit about it. So here goes, a little guide to some of our dresses and the kind of body shapes they have been designed for, to give you a head start when trying on.
p.s. Take advice from your wedding consultant and trust their suggestions, you might just be surprised...
First up... Elora- This dress works on so many shapes and sizes. Great for accentuating an hourglass figure, or for giving the illusion of more hips if that's the look you are after.
Kacie- Stunning on a curvy bride or if you are a bit bigger on the hips than the top. This design accentuates the waist while beautifully floating over the hips and bottom. The capped sleeves will also balance out your top and bottom. Such a flattering dress!
Morrison- Great for the athletic figure as it will accentuate all of your best bits.
Melody- This dress has an open back which may be a problem for a bigger bust. But the beautiful sleeves give a bit more coverage without drowning you in fabric and the subtle a-line skirt is super flattering to all body shapes.
Lova- We LOVE this dress and it's understated elegance. Great for a smaller bust, it has a plunging back which counteracts the long sleeves. Fab for petite brides as it lengthens the body with its high neckline.
These are a fraction of the dresses we have at The Farnham Boutique so please book an appointment to come and have a look.
