How to Preserve my Bridal Gown?
Gowns should be stored in a room where the temperature and humidity levels are constant, such as a guest room or spare closet. Never store your dress in the attic or basement where there are extreme changes in temperature and/or humidity. It is best to keep it in a dark (unexposed to sunlight), dry place, folded or rolled in a clean white sheet. Hanging your dress on a hanger is not recommended as it can cause stress to the fabric and create distortion. Do not store your gown in plastic such as a garment bag. Plastic can emit gases that will tend to yellow the fabric. If you decide to remove your gown from the one place to another place, we suggest that cotton gloves should always be worn when handling gowns.
It's important to note that one of the leading causes of bridal gown yellowing is the plastic bags that many brides keep their gowns in. Most plastics give off damaging fumes that actually promote yellowing. But, even with proper care, some fabrics will yellow more than others and it may be impossible to prevent all yellowing.
Generally, silk fabric yellows more than synthetic fabrics, such as polyester, rayon and acetate. However, nylon, which is a synthetic, has a tendency to yellow more than other synthetic fabrics. Gowns that can be wet cleaned have an advantage, in that if they do yellow, they may be able to be whitened for future use with a fabric whitener.
Preserving your gown in an acid-free environment is your best protection against yellowing. Padding your gown with acid-free tissue will help to prevent acid migration. Buffered tissue should be used for gowns made of synthetic fabrics such as polyester, rayon, and acetate. The buffering agents in the buffered tissue gives added protection against acid migration. But buffering agents may damage gowns made of animal proteins such as silk or wool, therefore un-buffered, acid-free tissue is recommended for silk fabrics
Flat storage is recommended for textiles and garments when possible. However, because of the size and dimensions of wedding gowns, it is impractical. Some compromise must be made, either by folding or hanging the gown. To help prevent permanent creasing,.(Cotton gloves should always be worn when handling preserved gowns.) Bagged gowns that are hung in a closet are better.
Mildew and mold
Keeping your gown in a breatheable environment will protect it best from mildew and mold growth. When fabrics can breathe, the humidity level remains constant around the garment as excess moisture dissipates into the air. But, if moisture can condense inside a box or any container, then the gown is at risk for mildew and mold growth.
An oxidation spot can occur when a substance that was not properly cleaned on the dress oxidizies and turns brown. This can happen even if your dress has been cleaned as dry-cleaning solvents do not remove all substances. Spills from clear soda or wine may go unnoticed at the time of the initial cleaning. Unless these spills are pretreated, it is likely they will oxidize over time. Inspecting preserved gowns periodically ensures the gown remains in the best condition. The sooner an oxidized stain is caught, the more likely it will be able to be removed.
Light and dust
Keeping your gown covered will protect it from the damage caused by light and dust.

Bottom heavy or wide hip
Women who are larger through their hips and buttocks should look for a wedding dress that focuses on their upper body preferably with a full skirt. Show your arms back and bustline. A corset style bodice with lacing will highlight your upper body. We want to draw attention away from your hips. Avoid pleats or gathered fabric around the waist. An A-line skirted wedding dress always works the best.
Off the shoulder straps or sheer fabric is a great wedding dress tip. In solid fabric, usually three-quarter or long sleeve works best to elongate the line of the arm. Sleeves should not be cut tight. Ever!
Fuller busted(Lager busted)
If You Are Big Busted, you may wish to stay with elongated bodices and necklines that are V-or U shaped or high with a keyhole yoke. Avoid cinched waists, empire styles that come up high under the bust, and clingy fabrics that accentuate your fullness. Choose instead full, billowing skirts with lots of ornamentation, which will create a curvier lower body. Keep sleeves simple with a natural shoulder line, and avoid adornments on the bodice.
If You Have Narrow Shoulders, drape them with cape collars or capelets. Accentuate them with sleeves that gather at the top, necklines that are bare or widely curved, and shoulder pads built into the dress.
If You Have Broad Shoulders, look for dresses with smooth set in sleeves, low V necklines or high, covered necks. Avoid puffed or leg of-mutton sleeves, bare necklines, broad collars, haltered tops and shoulder pads.
Slender Midriff and Waist
If You Have a Very Slender Midriff and Waist, accentuate your features with a dress featuring a well defined midriff, a gathered or pleated skirt, and a natural or sashed waistline.
Thick Midriff and Waist
If You Have a Thick Midriff and Waist, We suggest you to choose the slimming effect of a lifted waistline and A-line skirt. Avoid tight waists, belts and cummerbunds, and shaped midriffs in contrasting colors.
Princess-line and drop waist wedding dresses are most flattering. Draw the eye up with stunning bridal and wedding accessories. Killer Diamonds will do the trick! Bridal shoes with height may assist.
Common suggestion for plus size
Slim A-Line:Slim A-line: A-line dresses are flattering to the pear shape figure because they highlight the top half of the body and camouflage the lower half. But make sure to keep the skirt on the smaller side as too much volume will add bulk.
Princess Cut:The Princess Cut: Princess Cut dresses have an A-line shape and no seam at the waist, which gives a long, uninterrupted appearance that is extremely flattering. Skirts can range from slim A-lines to full A-lines, but the key is that they begin to flare just below your natural waist, hiding a heavier bottom.
Sleeves and Straps:Sleeves and Straps: Despite the popularity of strapless dresses, many curvy women shy away from them. Designers are responding to this by making more options in necklines. Busty brides often feel most comfortable with a little covering up top. Tank style dresses are very flattering as are cap sleeves and even three-quarter sleeves. One trend that works particularly well is sheer fabrics. Netting and tulle are chic alternatives that provide coverage without drawing attention to the chest area.
V-Neckline or A v-neckline on a busty woman can add a beautiful contrasting line
