Posted by Ralph Dewu on

 

Have you ever put on a dress and straight away you couldn't wait to take it off? Or have you ever attended an occasion and what you wore was not appropriate? Have you worn a dress but the size that fitted you was not your normal size?Or have you ever wanted to wear a certain colour, only to realize that the colour just wasn't what you thought it would be ? Have you put on a dress only to realise it highlighted parts of you body that you would rather stay hidden?

 

Read these 5 ways that will help you to get the best fit possible from your occasionwear

 

Dress for the occasion you attending

It is important that you don't under or overdress for any special occasion that you are attending. For example if you are going to be the mother of the bride/groom and you wear a dress that is too plain, you will be overlooked. Therefore, when you are attending a special occasion make sure that you're  dressed in a way that is appropriate for the occasion. 

 

Wear what you can see yourself wearing

Part of the reason we buy clothes is so that we boost our confidence. If we find an outfit that looks very nice but when we are wearing it, we fidget, we squirm, we are uncomfortable, we won't really enjoy wearing it.Our advice would be to wear a dress suit that when you put it on, straight away, you love the way it looks and feels on you.

 

Don't worry so much about the size

One thing we have noticed over the years is that certain customers are so fixated on the size they would like to fit in. Even if the size they want may not be in the size that fits them. Wedding clothes suppliers, size their outfits differently. As such, a size that may fit you from one supplier, may not be the same size that will fit you from another supplier. 

Thus we always encourage customers to not worry so much about the size of the dress, rather concerntrate more on getting one that fits you regardless of what size it may say on the label.

 

Be careful of the colors that you wear

Over the years we’ve noticed that certain dress colors are just very difficult to wear. You may have an idea of a certain dress color that you would like to wear but it might not go with your skin tone or once you put it on, you may realise that you are not comfortable wearing that colour. (Remember advice tip #1). 

 

Colours that we have found that do work are neutral colors such as beige, gold, ivory and black. Should you want to use an uncommon colour for your special occasion or wedding color, we recommend you wear a neutral color then use your color of choice for the accessories.

 

Pro tip: Should you wish to use an uncommon color, let the main dress & jacket be a neutral color (beige, gold, ivory, black), then use your color of choice for the hat/fascinator/shoes and/or clutch bag

 

Wear clothes that accentuate your shape

The style of dress you wear will either highlight or hide parts of your body in the right or the wrong places. As such you need to make sure that the dress suit you wear shows your body off in a favorable manner. Avoid wearing dresses that are too tight as they will show off your bumps. Rather get a dress style that highlights parts of your body that you would like to be highlighted.
