Where do you start when it comes to choosing the ultimate dress?

Do you go traditional or original, strapless, sleeveless, A-line or Empire, beaded, lace or satin?

With so many style and designs on offer, how can you be sure you’re making the right decision?

A-line: Flared from either under the bust or the waist, often with a fitted waist. Looks like an upright letter A, and is also called a princess line. An A-line is a flattering silhouette for just about everyone.

Ball gown: A fitted corset with a very full skirt that brushes the floor. The waist may be nipped in at your natural waist, be shaped in an elongated triangle or be dropped to hug your hips. This is the classic fairy-tale wedding-dress silhouette, and the dress is highly embellished with sequins, lane or crystals, you’ve got you very own Cinderella fantasy costume. This dress all ready for the ball. The ball-gown silhouette looks particularly good on women with small waists and is most flattering for the less-buxom bride.

Empire: The bodice is cropped and the waist seam ends just below the bust line to create a flattering elongated effect. It can have short sleeves or be sleeveless and may have various necklines. Works particularly well on women with medium to large breast and less-than-tiny waistlines.

Mermaid: Narrow, body-hugging dress that flares dramatically at or below the knee like a mermaid’s tail. Also Known as a fish tail. Good for showing off your curves, especially if you’re tall, Some woman find the cut constricting, but others like the shimmy effect.

Sheath: A narrow, close-fitting dress that goes to the floor in an unbroken line. This shape is more reminiscent of an evening down than a wedding dress and is currently very popular with slim, toned brides. Particularly revealing when cut on the bias. Not suitable for kneeling. Basically, a sheath is the mermaid style without the flared bottom.

I feel there is something unexplored about woman that only a woman can explore.
