Wedding Dress By Jessica Weltersen Wedding gowns come in many different shapes, colors and styles. When it comes to picking out that perfect dress for your big day, you’re going to want something that sets you apart from all the other brides. A-Line is fine, if you’re going for that universally flattering, but undoubtedly generic look, but if you want something different but equally figure-flattering, go for the trumpet skirt gown. Why We Like It The trumpet skirt refers to an almost straight cut and figure hugging skirt with a hem flounce that softly bounces away from your body. Trumpet skirts come in different lengths, although the most common length has a hem that grazes the wearer’s calves. Most dancers prefer the trumpet skirt, especially for dances that involve a lot of twirling. The skirt hugs and accentuates every inch of the woman’s hips, while the hem flounce bounces and moves with every slight movement of the wearer’s body. Its fun, feminine and sexy, making it an absolute wardrobe must have. Who Should Wear It Whether you have slim hips, wide hips, bony hips or fleshy hips, the trumpet skirt style will work for you! Just like the A-Line skirt, the trumpet skirt has a way of balancing out wide hips. If you have wide hips or a pear-shaped figure, you may want a slightly loose bodice or an off-shoulder neckline to help create the illusion of an hourglass figure. A number of the wedding gowns in the trumpet skirt style provide a sleek and chic mermaid silhouette. If you have an hourglass figure, an ample bosom, great hips and a lovely behind, then a strapless, trumpet skirt number is the perfect way to show off your curves. For formal weddings, go for floor length trumpet skirt styles, paired with a neckline that works well with your figure. A train is always a great option when it comes to extremely formal ceremonies. What to Wear With It If you’re on the petite side, and you’re going for a mid-length trumpet skirt wedding gown, then be sure to wear heels to help you appear leggier. Remember that the right wedding shoes are just as important as your actual wedding gown. It doesn’t matter if your gown is floor length and your guests are only going to be treated to the sight of the tips of your shoes; your shoes affect your overall look. For winter weddings, investing in great wedding over clothes is a sure way to look classy, composed and comfortable. Don’t take the attention away from your actual wedding gown and your skirt by covering up in a floor length coat; go for a bolero or shawl to keep you warm while showing the world just how fashion-savvy you are. Your figure will definitely come out when you will choose this trumpet wedding dress. Watch this video below.
