If shopping for your wedding dress seems like a mountain too high to climb because you always have a hard time finding clothes you really love that fit well, you can set yourself at ease.
Wedding dresses are so very special that they have to come in all styles, sizes and colours, just to make sure that every bride, no matter her shape, will be married in a dress that fits her perfectly!
Knowing a little more about your body type will definitely make it easier for you to narrow down your choices, and, perhaps with the following list, you’ll find your body type and have a little more info about which style and silhouette would suit you best.
If you’re tall the field is wide open, including celebrating your stature in a ball gown that will make you look like a princess straight out of a fairy tale! While ball gowns aren’t the right fit for shorter brides, they are absolutely perfect for taller brides.
Wider hips and thighs with smaller breasts and narrow shoulders are what we call the pear-shape body type. If this is your body shape, keep the focus on the bodice and on the natural waistline, which would mean you need to lean towards an A-line style or the dramatic ball gown.
A halter top can be trendy, while an illusion neckline with soft fabric speaks volumes in elegance. Another option you may want to consider is an off-the-shoulder dress.
For shorter, tiny brides an A-line dress is once again an option that’s extremely flattering since it compliments small frames by adding definition to the bust and waist. You might even want to try a V-neck dress, which can add height by creating the illusion of a longer upper body.
For women with an hourglass figure, a mermaid gown follows the natural contour of your bust, waist and hips before flaring out, which is the fabulous celebration your curves deserve on your special day.
Don’t think that because you are curvy you need to settle for something that hangs loose on your curves! Even if you don’t have well-defined curves, the team at Ever After Bridal Wear might suggest that you at least try the mermaid style, since it can give you the illusion of an hourglass figure by accentuating your waist.
Ultimately, the best wedding dress for you is the one you fall in love with, and the one that celebrates everything about your natural beauty, style and personality!
