Q. I'm naturally very slim and normally wear a size six. As such I'm worried most dresses will show off the fact I have no curves or chest! What gowns should I be looking at to help me look my best on my big day?
A. Susanne Shah says: Susanne says: The best advice that I can give, is to try on different designs and shapes. Often brides disregard a particular dress, but they could fall in love with it once they see it on. Never judge from the hanger!
With a slim figure and smaller chest you have the advantage of being able to consider a backless dress, as less support is required. If that is too much on show, then a strapless dress would work, to give a romantic and sexy look showing off your neck, shoulder and back. Consider dresses with ruching across the chest, too, as this can give the appearance of a fuller bust. Embellishment across the neckline or delicate embroidery and beading in the right places can also give you shape.
A dress that fits snug to your waist will help accentuate the curves you do have and a ballgown with a fitted bodice and full skirt, would give the illusion of curves and a very feminine shape.
