Numbs a bride, we wanted to look our best in our Big Day but finding that perfect dress is a little bit exhausting because many ideas kept on coming in our head.

Remember that different gown styles can help us create a shorter, taller, heavier or thinner look, here are some tips;
If you are a short, heavy figure: To look taller and slimmer, avoid knit fabrics. Why not, use a princess or A-Line style. Chiffon is the best fabric choice because it produces a floating effect and can hide your weight.
If your a short, thin figure: A shirtwaist or natural waist style with bouffant skirt will produce a taller and more rounded figure. You can use Chiffon, velvet, as a fabric of your choice.
If your a tall, heavy figure: A princess A-line dress are the best style for slimming figure. Satin, chiffon and lace are the one recommended.
