How to Look and Feel Good in Your Wedding Dress


Your wedding dress may be beautiful, but if you don’t feel good in it, it may not be the dress for you. When choosing a wedding dress, always remember that you should be the one wearing your dress, not the other way around. As long as you’re confident in what you’re wearing, you’ll be able to glow from within and become the image of bridal perfection.

Get ready to rock your wedding dress and be the goddess that you are:

1. Find a dress that feels true to you

We’ve all witnessed brides on “Say Yes to the Dress” say no to gorgeous gowns because of their mothers’ and mothers-in-laws’ opinions. But this shouldn’t be you. When shopping for a wedding dress, you should go for the one that you feel is right, not what someone else wants you to wear. After all, weddings come once in your life, so you might as well wear your dream dress!

Remember, the worst wedding dress you can wear is one that you don’t feel comfortable in. You’ll only be able to walk down the aisle with confidence if you wear a dress that’s true to you. If you’ve always dreamed of wearing a wedding gown with a cape but your in-laws disapprove, ignore them and go for it! The Hazel Bridal Gown, for instance, offers a contemporary but still classic flair that’s sure to make your fiancé swoon.

2. Wear a wedding dress that fits you well

You’ll feel good when you wear a wedding dress that fits you well. That’s why it’s crucial to buy a bridal dress in your current size, not the size that you want to be by the time you say your “I dos”. Wear a dress that’s big or too tight, and you will likely tug at your dress all day — this is not a good look for any bride-to-be.

With that said, it would be a good idea to have your ready-to-wear wedding gown altered. In that way, you can ensure that your dress fits you perfectly and that it provides you with proper support.

3. Know what works for your body

Your wedding dress should not only fit but flatter your body. Before you shop for a wedding dress, be sure to find out what your body type is. This will allow you to find a dress that suits your specific shape. Remember, a dress may fit, but if it isn’t suitable for your body type, it may not be the best for you.

Go for the wedding gown that accentuates your figure. Brides with pear-shaped bodies can consider off-the-shoulder dresses as these can balance out their proportions. For instance, when you wear the Eloise Bridal Gown, you can draw attention to the upper body, balancing out the weight on the waist. If you have a triangular body shape, you’ll look good in a wedding gown with a V neckline like the Jayne Bridal Gown.

Whatever your body type may be, you can’t go wrong with an A-line wedding dress. It works for everyone, so if you want to play it safe, slip on an A-line gown such as the Delilah Bridal Gown.

4. Conceal your insecurities

It’s perfectly fine to be insecure about certain parts of your body. Unfortunately, these insecurities can take away your confidence on such a special occasion. You’ll be so worried about how you look that you won’t be able to immerse yourself in the key moments like the wearing of wedding bands. And while all bodies are beautiful, we do understand that at times, you may want to hide your “flaws” — and there’s no shame in that at all!

From wearing shapewear to the right wedding gown, there are several things you can do to conceal your insecurities. For instance, if you want to slim down your waist, you can wear a dress that’s narrower at your midsection. To cover up your arms, you can benefit from a long-sleeve wedding dress like the Gabi Bridal Gown.

No bride should have to feel self-conscious on their wedding day, so choose a dress that conceals the bits you’d rather not flaunt.

5. Wear the right underwear

The wrong underwear can ruin your wedding gown, regardless of how gorgeous it is. The last thing you want is for your guests to see the outline of your undergarments, or worse — flash your in-laws!

For your wedding dress to be flawless, you need to wear the right underwear. Dresses with thick fabrics will allow you to wear whatever you want (even your favorite pair of bikini briefs), while slim-fitting dresses will need you to slip on undies that lay flat. As a rule of thumb, no one should be able to see your underwear through your wedding dress.

When it comes to bras, be sure to check what kind of bra your dress needs — and if it needs one. Some bras and corsets can be sewn into the dress, but if you’d like more support, you can wear a strapless bra or stick-on bra for a seamless look.

6. Give your wedding dress a test run

Can you walk in your wedding gown? Will you be able to twirl around the ballroom in it? How easy is it to sit down wearing your wedding gown? Even if a gown makes you look like a goddess, if it doesn’t allow you to do basic things such as walking, it’s not a good gown.

Be sure to give your wedding gown a test run to get an idea of how it feels. Walk around the room. Try to sit down. Practice your first dance. Imagine yourself wearing your wedding gown for an entire day — will you still feel good after four hours? If not, it’s not worth wearing.

Wrapping Up

As long as you feel good in your wedding gown, you’ll also look good. Remember, between “that’s a gorgeous wedding dress” and “you’re gorgeous”, the second compliment is way better, so be sure to find a dress that you’re truly confident in.
