By: roopam

Fast and smart shopping for prom or bridesmaid dresses does /should not stop at searching for the cheapest outfits. Conversely, just because you have opted for the most expensive dress does not mean you have also opted for the best quality and best fit for your body. Expensive outfits are not necessarily a guarantee of excellence of material and style. They might only reflect expensive promotions and nothing more. Even if price is one of the matters associated with shopping for formal wear, it is not exactly the most important one. On the contrary, the most important aspect is given by the way you will look in that particular outfit.

How can you know what kind of bridesmaid or prom dresses fit what kind of body type? The entire matter goes down to knowing the type of body you have. There are three main types of body: hourglass type, muscular /sporty type and straight body type. If your waist is very distinct, your legs are well formed and your bust is prominent, your body fits the hourglass type. If your waist is rather in a straight line, your legs are well formed, your bust is standard, and your shoulders are broad, most probably your body is sporty. If your legs are slim, your waist and bust are medium, and your hips and shoulders are equally broad, you have a straight body type. Of course, not all girls fit exclusively these three categories, as some may have plumper waist and narrower shoulders, or very small bust and indistinct waist, and so on. However, we will offer indications for choosing bridesmaid or prom dresses according to the three main body types we have just named.

Therefore, if you have an hourglass body type, you would definitely feel like emphasizing your thin waist and your very attractive curves. Looking for prom or bridesmaid dresses that are fixed in the waist area and calling attention to it by adding a belt or a string will be ideal. To what concerns the emphasis on your curves, make sure you do not overstress this aspect. Elastic materials are not advisable, as they will fix too tight on your curves and accentuate them to a misshapen effect. Generally, plain colours try to stay away from patterns imprinted on the material will do the job and make the best out of your body.

If your body is muscular, as described above, you need attention drawn to your legs and hips. For instance, bridesmaid or prom dresses the skirt of which goes drop waist, will place the necessary highlight on your hips, particularly if the skirt has a cut in the front. You will maintain the formal appearance even if the dress is not long to the floor your attractive legs emphasized by a knee-long skirt will provide elegance and grace to your look. The top of bridesmaid or prom dresses for a sporty body type should be kept as simple as possible. You do not want to divert the attention from your legs to the top area which is not your strong point. If you do want some sort of ornamentation, opt for it if added below the waist.

Finally, for a straight body type, you could place prominence on your legs and try to make your upper body appear a bit longer than it actually is. For the latter purpose, prom or bridesmaid dresses should have plain colour tops or vertical lines patterned ones. Horizontal lines on your top would only make you appear larger. You can have the desired emphasis on the legs with short-skirted prom or bridesmaid dresses. It is preferable to maintain the waist area as unstressed as possible. If you ornament it, you will look rather hilarious, as your waist is rather plump and one of the weak points of your appearance.

You need to choose carefully formal wear, looking for those elements in the design of the outfit that can emphasize the strong points and conceal the weak points of your body. In addition, if chosen according to your body type, formal wear will feel comfortable to you and will look nice not awkward to the others. You only need to consider the gifts that nature has offered to you and then make the best out of them.
