As all of you know finding the perfect wedding gown can be one of the biggest decisions you will have to make in your life! What better way to find it than let someone help you who does it every day of their life! If you ever take one word of advice from the girls at Jaehee-this would be it! Be open to trying on different things! Often times we have girls that come in and are upset about trying on numerous gown’s and still not being able to find “the one”. After speaking with them we’ve realized it all boils down to one thing. They come in with one specific silhouette that they want to try on and it may not be the best fit for their body type! The quick solution to this problem: let the consultant pick out a few gowns for you that you would have never dreamed of trying on! For the girls who live close- Please book your appointment with one of our great consultants and let them help you find your perfect gown! For the girls who live far from us-No worries! Below is a guideline how to determine which gown will fit and flatter you best!
If you are pear shaped: A gown with a skirt that flares out in an A formation, from your natural waist will highlight the narrowness of your midsection and draw attention away from the hips and thighs! A ball gown can also be great!
If you are straight lined: A dress that will create curves where you don’t have them. Often times the way you accessorize your gown can give you more a waist! Dresses with sashes or embellished belts and bodices draw attention to a certain area and take away from the other. Textured bodices and tiered skirts are great for giving an hourglass figure.
If you are busty: A dress with a scooped neckline and less detail around the chest area. If you love the look of strapless gowns, choose one that has a slight dip along the neckline, like a sweetheart, rather than a style that goes straight across. (This can actually make your chest appear larger.)
If you are small chested:A ruched bodice is a go-to! Extra fabric up top will help fill out your upper body and create the illusion of curves. Lightly padded halter styles will also do the trick. Don’t forget- you can also have the luxury of wearing beautiful open back dresses and not have to worry about wearing a bra!
If you are apple shaped:A dress that cinches at your smallest point on the waistline, then flares out into a gradual A shape. Try a bodice that is ruched to allow a more forgiving drape of the fabric. A dress with a corset is also great because it allows you to pull in the center to give you more of a distinct waist.
If you are tall:A simple silhouette is key. The goal is to emphasize your natural shape, so every aspect of the dress―the lower waistline, a floor-sweeping hem―needs to reflect your longer proportions. Great shapes are fit to flare and trumpet.
If you are petite: Trumpet, sheath, and modified A-line gowns. Find a style with a waistline above your natural waist, to make the lower half of the dress (and therefore you) appear longer. Also, nothing that cuts you at a certain point, try to have a constant flow of design with the detailing of the dress. Be weary of dropped waists that will make your legs appear shorter. Straps will also elongate your body if you are opposed to an empire waist!
