It is essential to choose the right style of wedding gown to suit your figure and make you look and feel your very best on your big day.
Hourglass: An hourglass figure where your top and bottom halves are perfectly balanced, with a very defined waist. Sweetheart necklines and bodices, an A-line dress with a dropped waist or if more curvaceous try a mermaid or trumpet style dress. A draped bodice shows off your narrow waist and detail at the hip draws additional attention to your fabulously curvy frame. Sashes, belts and fitted bodices will cinch in the waist or the wedding dress.
Triangle: If you are a triangle shape, you are wider on the top of your body, with hips narrower than your shoulders. A v-neck dress and sleeves look great and are perfect for winter weddings. Details such as embroidery and bows, around the middle and bottom of your dress take the eye downwards.
Straight or Athletic: If your shoulders, bust and hips are roughly the same size and your waist isn’t much smaller then you’ve got a straight or an athletic body type. Straight up and down figures can pull off both slimline and fuller styles, Create curves using a structured bodice and full skirt, complete with a waist belt and give the illusion of a fuller bust with a sweetheart or one-shoulder neckline.
Apple: More voluptuous than most, an empire-line dress will give you a leaner look. An A-line dress with a dropped waist looks great on an apple body type. Show off those pins with a short or tea-length wedding dress. With a larger bust, opt for straps.
Pear: Just like the fruit, you’re smaller on top than the bottom, with hips wider than your shoulders. Princess style dresses balance your torso and bust. Empire line dresses work well. Narrow shoulders lend themselves well to a strapless wedding dress and sparkly waist detail will draw the eye.
Slim: Short or tall, you have a ballerina’s figure, with an undefined waist. A sheath gown will flatter your slender shape and fitted gowns with a high neckline look amazing on this shape.
Petite: Clean, unbroken contours without too much fabric will elongate your figure. A sheath, is perfect. Most silhouettes flatter your figure, narrow A-line dresses work well for petite brides. Choose airy sheaths and structured trumpet styles, an empire waistline is a great style for petite figures.
Tall: Tall brides can carry off almost any dress style. Just pick the best for you. Stay away from empire line dresses, which risk looking almost tent like on willowy frames. Mermaid style gowns are ideal.
