When you try on the dress, you get a clear image of how it fits you. Before you conclude that it suits you well, the body features should be adequately covered and comfortable. To ensure that you don’t gamble with your dress fitting, here are some of the tips that will help you to identify a well-fitting dress.
Always try on the dress. You should try wedding dresses of different sizes and stand in front of a full-body mirror to see how you look in every one of them. If you find that the dress is aligning with your body features and you feel comfortable, then you can say that it fits you. If you feel that your back is being squeezed, then you should know that the dress is not your size. The bride is at liberty to choose a wedding gown which is a little bigger and have it adjusted to her satisfaction.
Ask for the tailor’s help. A professional tailor can take measurements of your body and make you a fitting dress. You may find a case where the bride has a big bust and a slim waistline, and she can’t find a fitting wedding gown in the salon. This is where the tailor’s expertise is much needed, as he or she must cut the fabric in a way that the bride’s bust will be well accommodated and the waistline slimmed. The bride should feel comfortable in a wedding dress.
Trust your instincts. This starts by taking measurements of your body. The moment you know your body size, you can walk in any shop and pick the right size of a wedding dress. You will find it easy to select a dress that fits you when you know the size of your body. For those with a standard size, shopping for a dress is an easier task, because the gown is tailored using those specifications. For a pregnant bride, discuss with your tailor on how the dress can be as comfortable as possible, but also look lovely.
You can take a trusted friend when shopping for a dress; a person who will comment on how you look in the dress you choose, with fair judgment. If you find that you can move or bend freely, and you don’t feel like suffocating, then you can confidently say that the dress fits you well.
