Let's face it, it's a wedding, you're definitely going to be dancing. Even more importantly, you're the bride, and you have spent months in the lead up to this day worrying about every little thing that could go wrong. But you're married now, the ceremony and speeches are complete and the food has been eaten with gusto. It's time to really enjoy yourself whist showing off your best dance moves and you need a dress that makes this possible.
That eye-wateringly tight corseted dress may have looked fabulous in the photos but after hour five or so the pain will really set in and dancing will sadly be off the agenda.
Now you may be one of those oh-so-lucky brides that can afford another gown to change into when the party starts but if not, never fear, there is a simple solution: wear a comfortable dress.
Easier said than done, I know, as so many dresses are full of boning and other contraptions to suck you in or pad you out in the right places. A dress with a big skirt can also just be incredibly heavy to carry around all day. This is why a bespoke dress - or at least bespoke alterations - can be a godsend. If you ask for comfort to be higher on your list of priorities then all manor of tricks can be implemented. To name a few:
- An invisible underskirt in a lighter fabric can give you that full shape without the weight.
- Boning is used sparingly to ensure you have some room to breath.
- And most importantly you can practise hitching up your skirts in the most flattering way to tackle that dancing hindrance!
