Kate Middleton made ‘tiny waist look even tinier’ in wedding dress


Kate, Princess of Wales apparently used a brilliant fashion trick when she wore her jaw-dropping wedding gown back in 2011, according to a video that style expert Miranda Holder released.

In a clip which has racked up over 1,900 likes, the fashion expert said: “The hidden padding in Kate’s wedding dress to make her waist look even smaller.

“Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen is no stranger to making women’s figures look even more incredible than they already are.

“Let’s face it, Kate doesn’t really need any help. However, Sarah really understands just how important proportion and balance is in any outfit to make the most of the beautiful figure that is wearing it.

“So with this in mind, Sarah added extra padding around the hips and bottom area which only made Kate’s tiny waist look even tinier in that stunning dress.”

Miranda, who posts under @themirandaholder, added: “It’s all about adding volume to certain areas to make other areas of the body look smaller.”

Fans have seen Kate wear a number of showstopping dresses on the red carpet since she married William in 2011.

Kate’s wedding dressmaker and designs were kept secret until the wedding day. They were only announced when the royal bride stepped out of the car.

Sarah Burton told The Daily Mail: “We wanted to look to the past, yet look to the future as well.

“There were a lot of references to Victorian corsetry, the padded hip, the tiny cinched-in waist, and also to the arts and crafts movement with all of the hand-work on the lace of the dress and also the bustle inside to create the shape of the back of the dress.”

The back of the dress had 58 buttons of gazar, and in total the skirt, underskirt and bridal train measured a staggering eight feet and eight inches long.

Workers from The Royal School of Needlework worked on the dress, but they were actually told it was for a TV costume drama.

The dress is estimated to have cost £250,000, making it one of the most expensive dresses ever made.
