Hi, I'm Jessica De Vault and I'm a Fashion Stylist and CEO of the Jessica De Vault Agency. Today, I'm at An Affair To Remember Bridal and Formal Boutique in Fayetteville, North Carolina and I'm going to show you how you can find a wedding gown that fits your body type. Now, there's all sorts of silhouettes out there ladies, from the pear shape to the hourglass, to the boy figure, all the way down to the basic petite sizes. But, today, I'm going to show you how you can dress at least three of those basic figures. Now, for one, if you're an hourglass or pear shape, this all becomes about matter of balance. If you have a lot of hips or a lot of rear, you want to make sure that your fabrics skim your curves, not cling to them. So, the best looks are once like ball gown dresses for example with the big princess look, or perhaps you can consider A-line dresses or garments that are more like sheath that can grace right over your curves. Now, if you don't have a lot of curves or have a boy figure, that's totally fine. It's all about creating the illusion of shaping curve. So, in this case, for those who don't have the curves, consider getting a dress that has an imperial waist. And what that means is that the waistline starts a little higher directly underneath the bust line and from there, it drops ever so slightly. It's an an A-line, but it skims over the curves so that it gives the appearance of hips and a waistline. So, no one will every know that you didn't have as many curves as you prefer. And lastly, if you're busty and have a lot going on up top, that's totally fine too. Remember ladies, it's all about balancing. In this case ladies, if you have a large bust, you want to level that out on the bottom. So, a A-line dress or perhaps even a princess ball gown type of dress will be perfect because it's going to level you out and have everyone look up at your face where they should be looking. Again, I'm Jessica De Vault, and you could find me at jessicadevault.com.
