Looking back at our experience of dress shopping for both me (the bride) and my mom (the mother of the bride), we really wish we had known more about our body shapes and what kind of dress shapes would best flatter our body.  I received all the advice needed at the bridal salons, but my mom had to try and figure things out on her own.  Her mother of the bride dress was gorgeous, but we both recognize it wasn’t the ideal cut for her body shape. 

Instead of obsessing over a vanity size such as a size 8 or a size 6, you should instead consider spending some time learning about your body and shape and what types of outfits will best flatter your body shape.  We had no idea that this knowledge is a major weapon used by celebrity stylists who carefully examine their celebrity clientele’s body shapes and then figure out which specific dress shapes and outfits will best flatter their body shapes. 

This show will focus on discussing the different types of body shapes that many women have and how to dress for each body shape.
