How to conceal in a wedding gown

To camouflage or conceal areas of problems, one should know their asset first. This will help them determine where to draw the attention and accentuate some details. For cheap trumpet wedding dresses, visit

Petite figures are lengthened in controlled-but-full skirts with minimal detail. Basque waistlines, simple sleeves, modestly detailed shoulders, vertical pleating and A-line or princess silhouettes elongate the torso and add height. For slim petites, the sheath or mermaid style is ideal.

Full figures look best in fitted, V-neck bodices and dropped-V, or basque, waistlines. Full skirts camouflage hips and thighs, while styling details around the neckline, such as beading on a sheer yoke, draw the eye upward. Long or three-quarter sleeves slenderize arms; avoid strapless or sleeveless gowns, which only emphasize upper-arm fullness. Opt for dresses where the fabric drapes gracefully to the floor instead of ones that are form-fitting.

Disguise a thick waist with an empire waistline. Princess-style dresses elongate a short waist and lengthen the torso. Long waists look shorter when the waistline is cut above the torso, as on a basque-waist or empire-style gown.

To slim heavy hips, try an A-line skirt or a full-but-controlled skirt without bows, flounces or ruffles. A full bust is flattered in an off-the-shoulder, portrait, scoop or V-neckline with minimal detailing. Small busts look larger when they are accentuated with intricate details, such as beadwork, sequins and on-the-shoulder necklines.
