What’s the Best Wedding Dress for Your Body Type?

If you are anxious about your wedding dress appointment because you always have a hard time finding clothes you love that fit well, it’s time to relax. Wedding dresses come in all styles, sizes and colours these days and it can be adjusted to fit you perfectly.

Also, various types of dresses can transform your look completely. So to help you find a wedding dress that will compliment your figure and your style we’ve compiled a list of common dress styles to try on.

Hourglass Figure

For women with an hourglass figure, a mermaid gown follows the natural contour of your bust, waist and hips before flaring out. Consider it a celebration of your curves. Don’t think that because you are curvy you need to settle for something more loose fitting. At Ever After Bridal we always suggest to our brides-to-be to fit mermaid dress, even if your curves aren’t defined. This dress can give you the illusion of an hourglass figure by accentuating your waist.

Pear Shape

A pear-shaped body usually suggests wider hips and thighs with smaller chest and shoulders. Drawing attention to your shoulders will balance out this type of figure. A high neckline will do the trick. A halter top can be trendy while an illusion neckline with soft fabric looks elegant. Another option you can’t go wrong with is an off-the-shoulder dress.

Petite Bride

For shorter brides, an A-line dress tends to be extremely flattering since it compliments their small frames by adding definition to the bust and waist. Curvy or not, you can opt for a V-neck to add height by creating the illusion of a longer upper body.

Tall Bride

As a tall bride, why not embrace the fairytale of a ballgown? Ballgowns may not be right for shorter brides but they are perfect for tall brides. Paired with a pair of heels or flats, you can look like the princess you’ve always dreamed of.
