How to look good on your wedding day: Shapewear
In the hustle bustle of wedding preparations, a number of things can be overlooked. So while you are fighting over the wedding list and choosing the right kind of flowers to hold, take some time out and think about if the wedding gown of your dreams is in fact what you really want.
Wedding trends change over time. If you are a conformist, then you would probably pick what you are seeing in wedding magazines at the moment. But if you are one that has been planning their wedding for as long as you can remember, then you already know what you want to look like on your big day. Big, poufy dresses can look both campy and elegant if worn the right way—after all, not everyone has the best stylists in England that Lady Diana had on her wedding day, right?
The trend in wedding gowns now is the slim-fitted, the mermaids, the Oscar fashion, or the Hollywood wedding fashion. What you have to know is that those kinds of dresses do not work on all body types. Let’s face it—the “Hollywood” bodies are not even real. Those poor women probably have to go through months without eating and hours upon hours of daily workout before they can fit into a size nothing that looks absolutely perfect. So unless you are planning to do just that till your big day, you should look for alternatives.
An easy alternative to look the part in your wedding dress is shapewear. Consider shapewear a new trend for your wedding day. You may have an extra flab here that you don’t want sticking out of your dress or faults there on your body you just do not want to show. In this case, shapewear helps accentuate the shape of your body in a desirable fashion. It helps your body look smooth underneath the wedding dress of your fantasy. You would want to do it justice, won’t you?
Using a one piece spandex item can help you achieve that goal. It would fit on you like a swimsuit and help get the shape and fall of the fabric on your wedding gown right. At the same time, if you are flabby around the middle, you could go for a waist clincher. They work with the same principle as a corset, except they are more stretchable and therefore easier to breathe it. Most of them come with hooks or invisible zippers that make them easier to put on.
Shapewear is also a fantastic way to take care of fitting faults on your dress. Sometimes, dresses end up crunching on your stomach, or falling oddly underneath the embroidery and the rhinestones. Sometimes, they don’t flow right, and sometimes they just look shapeless on your body or look like they could fall off. Shapewear then is a good idea to correct these faults and make your dress look the way you want it to.
Remember, choosing the right dress is not enough; wearing it right is what matters most.
