It’s June at last and wedding bells are ringing everywhere as brides of every shape and size do the dress dash! Along with the search for your perfect dress to take you down the aisle often comes the search for the perfect shaper for your silhouette. You’re likely to be photographed on your wedding day more than any other day, so capturing the right look for your unique curves is essential.
That’s why we’ve created this guide to help you find the right foundation for your special day based on your own special shape.
If your silhouette is more rectangular, with beautiful broad shoulders that sit about the same width as your hips, you may want to create curves with a shaper that has a built-in bra. Paired with a strapless look to show off those shoulders, a garment like the Longline Smooth Strapless Bra by Dominique can set off your gown and your shape! All over smoothing is a nice feature of this figure flatterer.
If your silhouette most closely resembles the hourglass, with a smaller waist plus fuller bust and hips, you’ll want to accentuate your bust and show off your curves. An underbust garment like the Diva Corselette by AMIA Shapewear will create cleavage, plus you can wear it with your own bra. Pair the Diva Corselette with a scoop or V-neck gown and your special day just got even more special.
Our pear-shaped beauties will want to bring the eye up, creating a balance between the top and bottom half of your figure. A simple way to emphasize and shape the waist is to add a Compression Panty Shaper by Squeem. It’s seamless construction won’t show through your dress no matter how sheer or delicate the fabric.
And last but not least, our apple shaped brides will certainly be the apple of their grooms’ eyes when they start with a bottom-lifting bodysuit such as the Alexandra. Trim your tummy and round your rear in this underbust style shaper.
And the best part about all these pieces is that you will wear them long after you say, “I do.” From your wedding day to every day, the right shaper is the right beginning of every look.
