The flattering styles in couture collection by Inga Nataya

Most of the clothing that you’ll find at brideinvintage.com is specifically designed with the ability to be adjusted to each and every body type, skin tone and backdrop of scenery. Our years of experience have taught us that all women, no matter how perfect their body, want to accentuate the good points and cover any perceived flaws. What we love most about so many of the couture dresses by Inga Nataya is how well they flatter various figures.

Today, we want to describe which dresses are best suited for each body type. So, discern your figure, and let’s go shopping!

Color palette plays a huge role in shaping a silhouette. Nude and pastel colors are flattering for long or semi-long trained dresses to make you appear taller and slimmer. The Morning Gown is a perfect example of this and is a great alternative to traditional mermaid wedding gowns.

For ladies with a pear-shaped body, we recommend the Morning Fairy Gown in lilac. Superb if you plan to wear high heels, pair this gown with a veil to complete the look of elegance. This dress accentuates your waist to draw attention to your hourglass shape. Ladies who are not pear-shaped can give the illusion of an hourglass waistline with this lovely gown.

Vintage style embroidery in Couture dresses by Inga Nataya

Many dresses in the Inga Nataya couture collection are considered to be vintage-inspired styles. Our couture brides adore the antique look and feel of Nataya’s trendy bridal wear. But today, we want to focus on the signature embroidery of the wedding dresses that make the Inga Nataya Couture dresses truly couture!

First of all, we present a wedding dress that is covered with the whimsical yet sophisticated style of French Victorian embroidery. This unique embroidery was taken from the Victorian era and French trend that was used in scalloping elements of wedding dresses in France between the 1880s and 1900s.  Our Sultry Elizabeth Dress is shown in two colors, traditional white and pastel lavender.

The embroidery on the white dress is white in order to complement the main color of the gown. The same thing goes for the lavender dress as well. The purpose of the embroidery is to enhance, not detract, from the beauty of the dress.

Here is another eye-catching, embroidered dress called the River Fairy. You can select this gown in classy white or trendy and alternative lilac. Unlike the previous model, the upper part of the dress is mostly covered with embroidery. Flutter sleeves enhance your feminine shape while the embroidery accentuates your bust line. This works well for those wishing to conceal larger hips.

The Morning Gown, which comes in white as well as beige, has two differing embroidery patterns. The beige variation boasts rather large embroidery to really turn heads. The white dress is a bit more subtle and really quite classy. Center stitches of gorgeous embroidery give the dress a rectangular appeal for a flattering effect.
