Ever wonder why celebrities of all shapes and sizes look so amazing on the red carpet?
I see too many brides starve themselves to misery hoping to drop even just a few pounds to look like a star on their own white carpet.
The truth is: You don’t need to be a stick figure to rock a gorgeous wedding dress, and you certainly don’t need to go hungry girl!
Today I want to share with you some styling tips trainers and wedding boot camps don’t want you to know.
Secret trick #1: Use vertical or asymmetrical draping and corsets to show off the smallest part of your torso.
Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer is both showing off her small waistline while creating a taller, leaner look by using draping on the first two looks, and corset top with an A-line skirt on the last one.
Secret trick #2: Use a belt or sash to create a small waistline curve.
This picture by Lark Photography shows a bride looking absolutely stunning while rocking a beaded sash on her natural waist. This is a great way to give the appearance of a smaller torso and longer legs…well done!
Secret trick #3: Balance your torso and hips by wearing a flirty cap sleeve.
This dresses by Roz La Kelin have it spot on. You can do a romantic loose sleeve or a cap sleeve, either way, is just as gorgeous.
Secret trick #4: Wear an illusion or sheer piece instead of just strapless.
This is an amazing trick because it allows you to rock the look of a strapless gown while avoiding the nightmare of finding the right strapless bra. I have advised some of my brides to be comfortable and wear a regular bra with see-through plastic straps under a dress with an illusion top and it works like magic!
I love how gorgeous this bride from Pretty Pear looks, picture by Jennifer Demo Photography, and I adore the belted dress by Callista.
Secret trick #5: If you’re going to wear a veil, let it be a long one.
I don’t know why so many curvy brides are afraid of long veils…”Too much fabric” they say. But I want you to trust me on this one: A long sheer, beautiful veil will do wonders elongating your body which in turn is very flattering, not to mention SUPER romantic!
Sigh…this bride from Pretty Pear looks like a true princess…just gorgeous!
