Find the right dress for your body type at Le Dress Boutique!

image

Alright ladies! Last week we found you the perfect dress for your venue, now we need to make sure it is the right style dress for your body! We are all so very different, so sometimes it is hard to find a dress that really highlights your best assets…and we get that! However! Here at Le Dress we have SO many different styles and designers you will surely find your perfect fit! In today’s blog we have narrowed down body types into four fairly common shapes and given you an example of what kind of dress will be best for your shape.

All of the dresses featured in today’s blog can be found in our boutique or online at www.LeDressBoutique.com! Click each picture to go straight to our website!

If you have an apple shape:

This San Patrick “Harriott” gown would be perfect! The satin waist is slightly dropped and cinched in to create the hour glass shape. The skirt will add a fullness to the bottom that will create a nice silhouette. (Dropped waist warning: if you are short, go for a higher waist line with ruching or some sort of definition around your middle, and a fuller bottom to create a waistline.)

If you have an hourglass shape:

You are one of the lucky ones because most things will look good on you! Mermaid, dropped waist, and a-line cuts are all great suggestions but one that we really love, and recommend is this Lillian West 6319 fit to flare gown. It is made from natural silk and has a lace yoke sleeve with button detail down the back. This gown retails for 1145, but Le Dress has it for just $820!

For you ladies with a Pear shape:

A-line is always a good go to for this body type, but you have to be sure not to make the bust area look smaller than it is! A great way to avoid this problem is to find a gown that is A-line, but has some detail (like ruching)  along the bust to add volume! This Paloma Blanca is a great example of this. This dress is priced at only $695 at Le Dress Boutique!

Lastly, the rectangle:

You lovely ladies probably have broad shoulders, and a pretty straight torso. Often times women with broad shoulders try to hide them with lace and sleeves when in reality you should show them off! If you choose a halter, one shoulder, or strapless gown with a fuller bottom your body will look more proportionate and “hourglass-esque.” The dress we have chosen for you is the Amsale Newport gown made of silk faille. Having this one strap will not only make you feel more comfortable and confident but it will also highlight your gorgeous shoulders. The waist is already going to create some shape for you, but if you want a bit more try adding a nice sash for great definition!

Lace, satin, or silk? Is your Wedding Dress the right “fit” for your venue?

At Le Dress Boutique we always ask our brides where they are getting married before we start an appointment. You may ask yourself, “What does this have to do with me trying on dresses?” Believe it or not, your venue SHOULD have an effect on the style dress you buy! As an example, you wouldn’t want to wear satin in 95° weather…. Because nobody wants to be a sweaty bride on their special day! At Le Dress Boutique we have tons of dresses in various fabrics that would be great for any venue!

We have separated venues into a few different categories and listed some of our FAB dresses that would be perfect for said venue. This first set of dresses is for our chateau/cathedral/upscale hotel bride:

San Patrick by Pronovias "Rocio"

San Patrick by Pronovias “Rocio”

This gown is grand enough for a large venue and has a classic elegance with beading across the bust and waist. Because your venue is indoors the satin will work out perfectly and make for beautiful photos! This dress can be found at www.LeDressBoutique.com for only $895!   Our next choice would be this Allure 8968 ivory lace and tulle a-line gown! It is currently being sold for $395!

Last but definitely not least, our Karelina Sposa C7900 gown! It is encrusted with beads and pearls down the bodice, has a dropped waist, and a keyhole back. It is a size 8 and ONLY $695!

On to our beach brides! You obviously want a light and airy material if you are getting married on the beach, but you also want to make sure that it is either short, or has no train so that you don’t get caught up in all sand on your way down the aisle!   Our first dress-recommendation is this fun and flirty short Ivy & Aster dress! It is perfect for a beach wedding, and can be dressed up with a beaded sash! $295

We also have a gorgeous Nicole Miller gown that is perfect for a beach wedding. It is a long dress for those brides that prefer to stick with tradition, but it is a light fabric, and doesn’t have much of a train to get in your way! This gown is a size 12 and is at our boutique for $645. Check it out online at www.ledressboutique.com.

Because we realize that there are other places to get married outside other than the beach, we now bring you our third grouping of venue-perfect dresses! This group is for brides getting married in a garden, farm, or wooded environment! Monique Lhuillier designed our next gown. This would be great for a country-chic wedding venue or a park in the fall. Satin Warning!! Do not get this dress if you are getting married outside in the heat! That won’t be ideal, trust us! However, the satin does add an elegant touch and the lace at the top makes it great for a soft and southern touch.

For our girls getting married in a outdoor garden, such at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens or the Raleigh Rose Garden this would be perfect! It is a soft chiffon wedding gown, and inspired by Jada Pinkett Smith’s Oscar gown. This gown is just $895!

Anne Barge/Blue Willow "Almandine"

Lastly is this Paloma Blanca 4305 lace gown. This is simply stunning for any outdoor wedding. The lace is romantic while the belt adds a bit of glamour. We have this gown at www.ledressboutique.com for $1020.

Another FABULOUS look (if your not into short dresses) is this colorful, printed halter gown! This would be a perfect dress if you wanted to try something a little different this year! Most girls go for short dresses when thinking about homecoming, but this is still flirty, bright, and the print keeps it from being ultra formal! IMG_4445

Getting past the “Consignment Stigma” when buying a wedding gown….

Somewhere along the way the word ‘consignment’ has picked up a bad stigma. The definition of the word consignment is simply “a quantity of goods that are sent to a person or place to be sold.”

So for those of you they may be a bit skeptical about buying your special gown from a consignment boutique, here are just a few reasons you should reconsider!

  1. Just because its says CONSIGNMENT doesn’t mean its Used!  It means the store does not OWN the dress.  At Le Dress Boutique, Luxury Consignment in Atlanta, 95% of the wedding gowns have NEVER been worn.  They are new or samples.
  2. It’s extremely cost efficient! ($$$) As if the idea of saving money isn’t enough, we have a prime example! Our lovely Lazaro 3254 wedding dress, that originally sells for $6200, is only $3220 at Le Dress…and SHE IS BRAND NEW!! She was consignmetn from a bride who had buyer’s remorse after plunking down $6,200 for the wedding gown, and $1,200 for the veil.  You can see more on pricing or make an appointment to try her on at Ledressboutique.com! (Be sure to check out the Oscar De La Renta too!)

  4. You can take your dress home the very same day you purchase it! This is great for those brides doing a destination wedding, or those who may have waited a tad too long to start the dress buying process! Besides, who wouldn’t want one of these gorgeous gowns to stare at everyday!  No worries that the dress comes in late or in the wrong size or color…What you see and try on, is what you get!
  5. It’s Eco-Friendly! These dresses won’t ever end up sad and discarded in a landfill because of YOU! So let’s save the earth one fabulous wedding gown at a time! Make your appointment now on our website!
  6. If you still need anymore convincing stop by our boutique and talk to one of our lovely consultants, there’s no way you’ll leave without wanting to take one of these dresses home!

 

With Luv,

Le Dress Boutique
