Written by outfit ideas,plus size dresses,plus size fashionHey there curvy girls, and posted in
It’s officially wedding season and the invitations are racking up. You now have the dilemma of what to wear to each wedding. There are some important factors to think about when looking for the perfect outfit.
- What time of the day is the wedding?
- Where is the wedding taking place?
Lastly, there is the black tie wedding that usually takes place later in the evening. The wedding attire should be a long gown. This is when you get glammed up for head to toe. If you aren’t into the long gowns you can definitely wear a short dress with adorable pumps. Get the look below: Womens Plus Size dresses can be found at Sugar Glam womens stores.
When determining the kind of wedding party dress that is right for you,determining your specific body shape is a good place to start. Perhaps you carry more weight around your mid-section and chest than you do your lower half, otherwise known as “top-heavy.” If this is the case, consider having a playful hemline that swishes about the knee instead of your ankles so you can show off your lovely calves. Your overall look doesn’t have to favor one half of your body, so you can lean towards embellishments being on the skirt while you keep jewelry simple.
If you do not have a distinct waist, you can raise the skirt higher along the torso so your stomach is softened by an A-line bottom. If you want to look elegant with a higher waist line go for an empress style. This creates a smoothing look down the torso.
Perhaps you are what is known as “pear-shaped,” meaning that your lower-half is thicker than your upper half. (Thats ME!) If this is the case, look for a fitted top that will help accentuate your slimmer half and have a skirt that flair out slightly above the waist to help cloak the wide hips and thighs. Use design or eye-grabbing accessories to draw attention to your slimmer top to balance your overall aesthetic.
