Choosing your Debut Gown: Will it fit your Assets?
During your debut, your GOWN is one thing that would definitely make you the star of the night and would make you feel like a real celebrity; which is why most girls put high investments for their gown.
Some would even go out of their way and purchase a customized debut gown especially made for themselves. They would choose their own preferred color, theme, styling, and accents just for their fabulous outfit.
However, it is not wise to just wear a gown without checking if it suits your figure. Remember, the right gown will do more than just hide the features you don’t want to emphasize. There are a lot more factors to consider if you want to look as good as you can be on the Big Day.
For instance, did you know about the tasty recipes that can keep you sexy for your gown?
You like where we’re going so far? Awesome! Here are more tips for you to consider:
1. Full Hips and Thighs
If you are pear-shaped with full hips and thighs, your gown should not be shorter than an inch or two above the knee. You would want one with an “A-line” skirt with just an average length—not something too long or too short. A short, fuller dress would make you look like a ballerina—on not a good way which is not a good thing.
To draw the attention away from your lower body, choose a gown with a plunging V-neck, halter top or embellished neckline.
If you have a thick waist, choose a gown with a thick middle as you would need to elongate the appearance of your torso and draw the attention away from your waist.
Choose a gown with a drop waist to redefine your waist line and avoid thick belts around your midsection.
4. Small Bust
If you aren’t well endowed, you should avoid deep plunging necklines by selecting a gown with a scoop or bandeau neck or other adornments to add a little dimension top partnered with layered necklaces.
Dresses with halter tops and deep V’s are advisable and very attractive for women who want to accentuate their big bust. But, you have to avoid making them look too big with binding fabrics.
To do this, draw some attention away from your chest and balance out a smaller lower body by choosing an “A-line” gown that falls one or two inches above your knees.
6. Plus Size
When your dilemma is to cover up your whole body, avoid packing bags of layers to do so. Contrary to what you may believe, baggy layers would only make you look bigger.
Select fabrics that don’t cling to your body but would drape nicely such as a wrap dress for example.
On the contrary to plus size, if your built is too thin, you would want to add layers to your gown such as a cardigan or fitted jacket to give you some build.
Avoid mini-skirts if you have thin legs and choose ones that are longer and flowing. Thin women can also add a thick belt to give more definition in their waist. Bubble-type gowns are an example of ones that thin women can wear.
The process of choosing the perfect gown can both be fun and challenging as there are certain types that can fit you or not. Since this is your debut and you would want it to be perfect, you would, of course, want a worthy investment on your dress. If you choose the right one for your figure and assets, you would surely feel like a star on your Big Day and be the most beautiful in the room.
