Wedding Dress Shopping Made Easy With These Tips

A few things can be as trying on your patience as shopping for a wedding dress. It is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life, and it is difficult to find what you want, let alone something that suits your taste or budget. This blog compiles tips to help make the process as easy as possible for you.

Set a Budget

Before you even start your search, you should have a clear idea of how much money you are willing or able to spend. This will help you eliminate any dresses out of your price range and prevent you from falling in love with something you can’t afford. 

It is also essential to keep in mind that the cost of the dress is not the only expense you will incur; don’t forget to factor in alterations, accessories, and shoes.

Bridal Appointments

When you have found a few shops you want to visit, it is time to make an appointment. Many bridal shops require appointments for dress consultations, so it is crucial to call ahead and schedule a time that works for you.

During your appointment, you will typically have the opportunity to try on a few different dresses and get a feel for what styles look good on you. When looking for the mother of the bride dress 2022, find a seller who offers a vast collection. This is very helpful, especially when not sure of what to pick. By comparing the different dress models, you stand a chance of narrowing down to the best.

Read the return policy before buying if you consider purchasing a wedding dress. The last thing you want is to buy something only to return it later. Most bridal shops will allow you to return the dress if it is in its original condition and has not been altered. However, some shops have a stringent policy, so ask about the return policy before purchasing.

Shop Early

Once you have an idea of what you are looking for and how much you are willing to spend, it is time to start shopping around. It is best to begin your search six to nine months before your wedding date. This will give you plenty of time to find the dress of your dreams without having to settle for something less. It also allows plenty of time if your dress needs to be ordered or altered.

Another reason to start shopping early is that you can often find discounts if you buy your dress early. Many bridal shops offer discounts for dresses ordered a certain number of months in advance. So, if you have your heart set on a specific dress, it is worth checking with the shop to see if they offer any early bird discounts.

Know Your Size

It is essential to know your correct dress size before you start shopping. There is nothing more frustrating than finding the perfect dress in your budget only to realize it is two sizes too small or large. 

To get an accurate measurement, wear a well-fitting bra and have someone else measure you around the bust, waist, and hips. Once you have your measurements, you can use a size chart to determine what size dress you should be looking for.

Have a Picture With You

When you start shopping for your dress, it can be helpful to have a picture of the style you are looking for. It doesn’t mean you should have a specific dress in mind, but rather a general idea of the silhouette, neckline, and other details. This will help the salesperson pull dresses that are more likely to suit your taste.

One great source for wedding dress pictures is Pinterest. You can search for “wedding dresses” and browse through thousands of photos if you have an account. You can also find boards created by other brides who have shared their favorite dresses.

Create a Wishlist

It can be helpful to create a list of the must-have features you are looking for in a dress and any specific designers or styles you love. This will help you focus your search and make it easier to say “no” to dresses that don’t meet your criteria. Once you have found a few dresses you like, you can start to narrow down your choices by considering things like silhouette, fabric, and color.

However, even if you have a specific style or designer in mind, it is vital to keep an open mind when dress shopping. You may find that a dress you would never have considered is perfect for you. It is also important to remember that not all dresses will look the same on your body as on the hanger; don’t rule out a dress until you’ve tried it on.

Use Social Media To Find & Save Gowns

Wedding dress shopping doesn’t have to be a solo activity. You can enlist the help of your friends and family by sharing your favorite dresses on social media. This is a great way to get feedback on the dresses you are considering and find out if anyone you know has any connections with bridal shops or designers.

You can also use social media to find discounts on wedding dresses. Several Facebook groups are dedicated to helping brides find the perfect dress at a fraction of the retail price. These groups are an excellent resource for finding lightly used or even new dresses that have been deeply discounted.

Bring The Proper Undergarments & Shoes

It is crucial to bring the proper undergarments and shoes when shopping. This will help you get a better idea of how the dress will look on your body and how comfortable it is to wear. The last thing you want is to fall in love with a dress only to realize it is uncomfortable or doesn’t look quite right because you are wearing the wrong undergarments.

When shopping for your wedding dress, it is vital to remember that the most important thing is to find a dress that makes you feel beautiful and confident. Don’t let yourself be pressured into buying a dress that you don’t love just because it is “traditional” or because everyone is going for it. Take time to compare the options available and narrow down to the best.

Pear shaped women are rounder around the waist, upper abdomen, bottom and thighs. While the bust and shoulders are slimmer. Beyoncé, JLO, Ciara,Christina Aguilera,  Skakira, Kelly Clarkson, and Eva Longoria all have pear-shaped bodies. The challenge for Pear shapes is to create a balance between the upper and lower body.

The key to dressing a pear body type is to enhance and add volume (or the illusion of volume) to your upper body while emphasizing your waist and de-emphasizing your lower body to create a balanced, hourglass appearance. Create the most curvaceous effect by mixing and matching separates.

Shapely Signs
You have longer legs and lower body than upper.
You have a smaller bust.
Your hips are slightly wider than your shoulders.
Your upper body is weaker than your lower body.
You experience lower back pain and less flexibility in your legs.
You tend to put on weight in your thighs and legs.

 

If you are pear shaped you should wear tops and that jackets that will accentuate your slender upper body while also creating a fuller illusion at the right places to achieve that balance with your hips that are larger. V or U necks , padding or embellishments on shoulders, crop tops, horizontal stripes are all good choices.

2) A-line; looks like it’s flaring out like an A.

3) Wrapped dresses: creates a ruching to the side of the dress that effectively hides and flatters your hip and tummy area. 4) Shoes; nude color shoes help elongate your legs and adds more height.

 

PEAR SHAPED WOMEN: Wrap dresses are the best way to balance out a larger bottom. Most wrap dresses work beautifully because they have an A-line bottom. Showing a little cleavage will bring the focal point upwards, drawing attention away from your bottom half.

PEAR SHAPED WOMEN:  If you choose to downplay your curves wear  dark wash jeans or black dress pants. Vertical details will slim down the hip-area (pleats, stitches & visible zippers). Tops, sweaters and jackets that extend just below your hipbone helps makes your hip look smaller.

Accentuate your upper body: Necklines stretching horizontally (boat neck, straight, etc.). Bright & bold colors (reds, orange, electric blue, etc.). Details such as stripes, polkadots, sequins, zippers, large collar/lapels, other eye catching embellishments.

The dark trousers are doing the exact opposite: make the lower half look slimmer.

PEAR SHAPED WOMEN: The main goal of this type of woman is to emphasize the waistline, which is really small, and broaden the shoulders in order to balance out the proportions of the body.  Wear fitted styles around your waist and always accentuate your waistline e.g. empire line, wraps, fitted lines

For this reason, belts worn on the waist and cap sleeves are always a great solution.

Fashion Tip for Triangle or Pear Shaped Body Types. Draw attention to your upper body & keep the eyes away from your thighs and hips. Wear accessories and designs to draw attention to your upper body. Examples: wear larger necklaces.

To take focus off your hips, wear garments to emphasize your waist, skirts and dresses that are straight or slightly flared: a-line skirt or dress.

Wear low-rise pants that are boot cut or straight leg. Boot cut jeans, fitted at hips and bottom, are the most flattering trouser shapes for pear shape bodies.

PEAR SHAPED WOMEN:  Color blocking swimsuits  are a good choice because by putting the slightly lighter color on top it creates a slim effect.

Also choose a swimsuit with cut leg. This is because if you choose a low cut leg it may be drawing a line across your widest part, thereby creating a center of focus, so go for a higher cut and draw the eye upwards. If you’re pear-shaped, an asymmetrical cut flatters. Bathing suits. For extra coverage on the thigh, look for a clean-skirted bottom, a feminine look that offers more coverage. To flatter thighs, a skirted bottom should fall just below the largest part of the upper leg. A plunging neckline or eye-catching top draws the eye upward, minimizing the bottom.

PEAR SHAPED WOMEN: coats should be tight in the waistline with a belt, with padded shoulders for those that are very little.

The short jackets must cover half of the hip & hug the waist; even for the down jackets, it’s better to avoid the shorter ones. Choose warm fabrics but not the thick ones. Make your shoulders look broader with e.g. shoulder pads, puffed sleeves, cap sleeve t-shirts, boleros

PEAR SHAPED WOMEN: If you must wear skinny jeans do not wear low-rise skinny jeans. Do not let your shirts fall to your hips. You want at least a mid-rise. Tuck in your shirts or wear cropped shirts. If you’re wearing skinny jeans and the bottom of your skirt is sitting across your hips that will make your hips look extra wide.

PEAR SHAPED WOMEN: Pair V-neck blouses with wide-leg pants or an A-line skirt to create an hourglass shape.

Choose jackets that are fitted through the bust and waist but gently flare over hips.

The hipbone is the line when all tops and jackets should end on a pear shaped figure, because this visually divides your body into two halves, minimizing the lower half.

Stay away from any jackets that are too long and do not give you that visual break, they will only make your bottom half look bigger.
PEAR SHAPED WOMEN: make sure is that the dress/skirt has structure (in other words, its not a loosy flowy fabric. It must maintain its shape on its own) and that the skirt/dress goes straight down after the widest part of your hips.

PEAR SHAPED WOMEN: Always wear something darker & slimming on the bottom (dark jeans, slacks, knee-length pencil skirt, or A-line skirt). You don’t always have to wear black on the bottom, but make sure that the bottom is solid in color & darker than what you have on top.

Direct attention to your tops: fun colors, prints, or details at the neck all serve the purpose of drawing the eye away from the hip area. Make sure your tops don’t end at your hips because it draws unnecessary attention there.

PEAR SHAPES SHOULD  AVOID

Details, belts on hips, patterns, pockets on thigh or hip area

Pleats or creases in your leg line, wide or flared leg lines, Culotes or cropped trousers pinstripe suits, Narrowing leg.

Flared or ruffled sleeve lines, straight skirts or pencil skirt

Dropped waistlines or dropped panels

Bags that sit on your hips
