Wanting to look like a queen on your wedding day is a perfectly normal desire. And even if we all adore having our photos taken, we don’t always look our best in picture. We sometimes feel fat even if we’re not or we feel like we should be taller. Here are 4 tips and tricks that will help you look tall and slim on your wedding day.
Choose a dress that matches your body shape
Even if that means that you need a trip to the tailor’s. Make sure that you pick a dress that matches your body shape. You can find out how to do that in this article. For instance, a dress with a corset is an ideal way to make your chest stand out. If you want your body shape to stand out and have nothing to hide, a mermaid dress is ideal for you.
Pick the right lingerie
You’d be surprised how much a good pair of stocking can help boost your figure. If you want to avoid the unpleasant aspect caused by wearing a bra underneath your wedding dress, but still want to have the perfect cleavage, make sure you find a specialized store where the sales assistants can help you choose the right bra. You can even buy several bras and try them on with your wedding dress to figure out exactly what fits you best. Many stores have an advantageous return policy, so don’t hesitate if you can return the models that don’t suit you looks. When picking out your stockings, choose something made of high quality material. Even if they’re more expensive, you won’t tear them up.
Change your posture
Always stand up straight at your wedding, especially when taking photos. You won’t magically lose 10 pounds, but you will look slimmer and taller. The secret is in the shoulders. Keep your shoulders straight and your head help up high, but don’t adopt a position that’s not comfortable.
Wear high heels
High heels are not the most comfortable thing in the world, but if you are one of those brides that choose good looks over comfort, this idea is perfect for you. Heels will trick the eye of the beholder and they redistribute the weight of your body across your “new” height. Don’t choose stilettos if you’re terrified of sore feet, but opt for something with a thicker heel and more support.
