Part 3: Flattering Poses for the Carrot-Shaped Body

July 23 2018 by convey

It’s time again for one of our favorite series: flattering poses! We’re all about every bride feeling comfortable and radiant in her body, and today we’re taking a look at some of the best poses for the carrot-shaped body. If you’ve got broader shoulders and an ample bust tapering into slim hips, then these tips are for you!

Angles – Shoulders First!

Angles are your friend! Posing with a twist in your hip and the side of your shoulders to the camera helps accentuate your hips and brings a broader shoulder into proportion.

How to Stand

Want to create a fuller lower half? Posing with your legs straddled a bit apart helps fill you out – and can push out that tush!

Accentuate the Waist

One of the simplest posing tricks that will automatically make your hips look bigger and your waist slimmer is to simply put your hand on your waist and turn slightly sideways!

Lean Forward

Don’t lean back – doing so will automatically make you look broader. Instead, tilt your head and lean a little forward for the perfect shot.

Cross Your Legs

You can create a curvy illusion by posing with one leg in front of the other as if taking a step forward to pop those curves.

You are a beautiful bride, and your pictures should reflect not only your beauty but your confidence on your big day – so practice, pose and slay!

So that’s it for Part 3. More posts are yet to come so stay tuned:

We’ll update THIS POST with the other parts as we post them too.
