Fashion Dresses 2007 – The Magic Slimming Dress Does Exactly As It Says!

The Magic slimming dress is one dress that all women will love as not only does it look good but the unique way that is made means that it flatters your figure instantly and makes you look a size smaller!

Let’s look at the magic slimming dress in more detail.

1. The concept

Ever looked at the Tour De France and seen how the cyclists look in Lycra? Well, the Lycra clothing they wear holds the body firm.

The construction of the magic slimming dress uses the concept of holding the body firm on the first level and then uses softer fabrics on top to give a firmer, slimmer look.

2. Design

The magic slimming dress has Elastane Lycra support in the design of the lining and the seaming of the dress. This support is designed to flatter your figure and is part of a new Magicwear range where all garments feature this unique construction. The marketing From Marks and Spencer’s who have produced this first range claims:

“Firm control inner lining that is cut and seamed to control and lift in all the right places – holding in the stomach and lifting the bottom and bust”

Well, to any women a claim like that has to be investigated!
The best place to start was the magic slimming dress (as all of us girls need one) and is a simple conservative plain black dress.

The Magicwear (TM) Short Sleeve Dress arrived, in the mail and I tried it on straightaway. Girls the good news is – It really does deliver and is not all marketing hype, which is great news! The dress was not only well made, but made me look slimmer, just as important, it changed my silhouette into a curvy, sexy hourglass shape.

My look was simply transformed and my figure looked great and I actually felt that rather than being in my late thirties, the Magic Slimming Dress took my body back a decade, to before I had children.

As my husband put it “you don’t look so big” cheek, but as I was so delighted I took it as a complement.

So why does the magic slimming dress work?

3. The Technical Bit

The inner is made up of 23% elastane Lycra combined with 77% polyester. The double crepe top fabric is made of 49% Viscose, 49% polyester and just 2% Lycra. Crepe yarn, being a highly twisted yarn that curls back on itself so therefore it is quite resistant to creasing.

This double crepe fabric has the advantage of just 2% Lycra and is mixed with polyester again makes it more crease resistant.

The Magic Slimming Dress also has a combination of polyester and viscose making it very comfortable to wear. The viscose absorbs body moisture helping retain comfort in wear. This combination also makes washing easy.

I personally think all women will love this new construction, which has a patent pending at present.

4. A great concept

The concept behind the Magicwear range is so simple, its one of those ideas you think why didn’t I think of it?

My Magic slimming dress worked for me and I am sure other women will love it. This range of women’s clothing looks set to become one the biggest fashion trends of 2007.

In conclusion, it delivers and that should make every woman happy.

Music Tips For a Small Wedding

Should you have music at a very small, intimate church wedding ceremony?

Many couples planning a small wedding will choose to have no music at all. I can understand that, but it’s a shame.

Music is such a powerful way of expressing emotion. Your joy is no less just because the ceremony is small. I think you’d be losing something by foregoing music just because of the size of the wedding.

So how to best have music for small weddings?

Two tips

There are two things you need to do to have effective, special and memorable music at a small wedding:

Create a more intimate sound:

Use less music. But use it in the right places!

Tips for a more intimate sound:

There are several ways to create a more intimate sound.

Get close to your musician (or get the musician close to you)
A piano might be just what you need
A piano is a wonderfully intimate instrument. If there’s a piano available (whether in the chapel or in the main part of the church), especially a grand or “baby grand”, consider using it as the primary instrument.

The organ can work too
The organ, whether in the chapel or in the main part of the church, can still be used to great effect. The trick is to use it correctly.

A loudly-played organ may sound irritating with only a few guests present, so the organ’s softer stops must be used. A softly-played organ can sound wonderful!

A skilled organist will be able to use the quieter stops effectively to achieve this wonderful sound. But watch out for less-skilled organists that turn quiet music into something bland and uninteresting.

Don’t shy away from other instruments
Solo instruments, such as flutes, violins, cellos or harps can help achieve intimacy. Such instruments can easily be used as the only instrument or can could be used with a piano (or nearby organ).

Even a singer can work well. Just be sure your singer (particularly amateur singers) are comfortable singing in front of a very small group.

Tips for less music

The second thing you will want in a small wedding is to go easy on the music. That means using it where it will contribute and no more than that. Too much of it for a small ceremony can destroy the intimacy!

Suggestions for getting the right amount of music:

Use very little music before the ceremony.
For a small number of guests, there simply is no reason to have lots of music beforehand. A very intimate performance (for example, a solo piano or violin playing nearby the guests’ seating) could allow you to get away with slightly more music. But do focus on keeping it short.

Avoid a separate bridal processional.
A smaller ceremony usually also means a smaller wedding party. Especially if held in a chapel, there won’t be enough time to get through two pieces of music let alone one. Cutting two pieces short will be more awkward than cutting one piece short.

So keep it simple and just use one piece for the wedding party and the bride’s entrance.

Skip the postlude entirely and perhaps also the recessional.
Your guests will be able to exit very quickly, so a postlude won’t be necessary. It won’t take the wedding party long either, so the guests could start leaving during the recessional (after the wedding party has exited).

A small, intimate wedding can be a lot less stressful and should be every bit as joyful as a larger wedding. Music is one of the best ways to express this emotion and done right, will make a wedding of any size extra special.
