The Wedding Gown or Wedding Dress For Your Body Type

indexYour wedding is one of the most special occasions in your life. It is only normal that you want to look as perfect as possible. Choosing the right wedding gown is the first step in doing so. But how would you know if a wedding gown fits you well? Here are some tips on how you can spot the best wedding dress for your body type.


Body Type: Pear-Shaped

Wedding Dress: A gown that flares out in an A formation is the wedding dress for pear-shaped bodies. This type of wedding gown highlights one’s narrow midsection, distracting other people from checking out one’s hips and thighs.


Body Type: Apple-Shaped

Wedding Dress: A gown that cinches in at the smallest point on the waistline, then flares out into a gradual A shape is the perfect wedding gown for girls with apple-shaped body type. The most slenderizing neckline for brides with this body type is a deep V neckline. It draws eyes toward the vertical, not the horizontal.



Body Type: Busty

Wedding Dress: A gown with a scooped neckline do the wonders for this body shape. A wedding gown with scooped neckline opens up the face and display one’s bosoms without showing too much cleavage.


If: You’re Small-Chested

Look for: A ruched bodice. Extra fabric up top will help fill out your upper body and create the illusion of curves. Lightly padded halter styles will also do the trick.



Body Type: Plus-Sized

Wedding Dress: Empire cut gowns that begin under the bust and flows into a floor-length A-line skirt best accentuate plus-sized bodies. Just make sure the empire seam does not start on the chest and that there is no pleating of the fabric. Pleats make a wedding gown look like a maternity dress. Also, make sure that it fits snugly. The dress should play up your shape; if it’s too loose, it will add pounds.



Body Type: Petite

Wedding Dress: Trumpet, sheath, and modified A-line gowns comprise the selection of gowns for women with this body type. A style with a waistline above the natural waist, makes the wearer appear longer.


Body Type: Straight-Lined

Wedding Dress: Look for the gown that creates curves. Some options can be a sheath dress in a wispy Charmeuse that’s cut on the bias, or a ball gown that cinches in at the waist then descend into a full-flowing floor skirt.  


Now that you know which type of wedding dress best accentuates your body, it is time to start the hunt. Visit different wedding dress shops before you make your decision.
