LightInTheBox.com, known for its chic and customizable special occasion dresses, is offering their expertise and aiding the worried bride or bridesmaid in finding the right dress to fit her figure. Read on to find their five tips below:

Hint 1: Dark Colors & Prints

Remember that darker colors recede, making your silhouette appear smaller, and loud prints attract attention and can sometimes make you look bigger – you need to decide what effect makes you feel more confident – and then work it, girl!

Hint 2: Cup Runneth Over?

Cleavage can be sexy, if it’s kept under control and supported correctly. The right neckline (halter, V-Neck, strapless) and cut of the dress can enhance this area while still maintaining a look of class and sophistication.

Hint 3: Never Been Busted?

If you’ve got a small bust, the style and cut of a dress can add volume and you can create the illusion of a larger bust with embellishments, ruffles and other details, such as lace appliques.

Hint 4: Create some curves

To create a more hourglass figure, you can create your own curves by choosing a dress with a peplum skirt, belt or empire-cut waist, which is very flattering if you have a boyish figure.

Hint 5: If you’ve got them, flaunt them

Were you blessed with long, lean legs? Have you worked hard defining your arms and shoulders? Nothing shows more confidence than showing off the assets you are most proud of!

These simple, helpful hints from LightInTheBox.com can help take the frustration and fear out of selecting the perfect dress so it can be worn with confidence and style! And, of course, if you order your dress at LightInTheBox.com, you can have your dress custom-made to your exact measurements, so the fit will be as unique and perfect as you are.
