Vintage Mini Dresses 2015

Mini dresses are dresses that are usually 4 or 5 inches below the knee, a length that is shorter than what women are used to. It can be in the form of strapless, sleeveless, and halter styles.  Women who wanted to try wearing mini dresses should first take their height into consideration. Mini dresses highlight the length, so the height of the one wearing it should be considered.

For petite women: If the mini is cut very short, the height of the one wearing it may increase with the right touch of modesty.

For tall women:  Long legs of the tall women may appear longer with mini dress. A mini dress cut for a woman with regular height can look like a micro-mini when worn by a tall woman. When shopping for mini dress, the key is to not go for too short or to be sure, get the skirt length measurement.

Know the Right Bridal Gown for You

Here are some tips in choosing the perfect bridal gown for your wedding:

Picture yourself in them

The majority of wedding gown stores usually have large-sized gowns so customers can wear them without any damage done. Sales assistants will need to use pins for smaller-framed customers for the fitting. This can mean an excess of fabric and the dress becomes unruly but you shouldn’t be discouraged if this happens.

Asymmetrical Wedding Dress

Consider your bridal theme

Certain designs can be adaptable enough to suit any bridal theme, though if you’re planning a more traditional type of ceremony, obviously a modern design will not do. Carefully consider the general shape, hue and time period that your gown shows in order to make sure it will work with the theme of your wedding. When you find the perfect wedding gown, you can change your mind about the theme and color of the ceremony.

Always be practical

Although we generally don’t think of wedding gowns as useful, we should always think about certain aspects of the wedding that may affect it:

First is the climate or weather condition of the venue since a thin lined dress may not be suitable for a winter wedding, so a bigger dress may be more appropriate. In the same sense, light dresses are ideal for warmer months or if the venue is in a tropical country.

Second is the length of the gown if, for example, the venue is outdoors and you are wearing a long train it will get damaged in a few minutes, worse if it rains suddenly.

Last is how comfortable the dress is since you’ll be wearing it for quite a few hours, sometimes the whole day and you want to be as comfy as possible while also being stylish and classy. You don’t want any seaming or other material underneath showing during your first wedding dance.

Remember your accessories

A few brides like to accessorize their wedding dress to make it more beautiful. Some dresses may appear amazing when a highly embroidered lace veil attached to it. Others like to wear super-high heels combined with a high hemline to achieve an eye-catching effect. The dress itself is essential of course, but we can always enhance it with a few accessories like tiaras and long gloves that evoke class and elegance.
