The perfect wedding dress for each body type

Ballgown, mermaid, trumpet, A-line, empire, natural waist, dropped waist… there are so many shapes and forms when it comes to wedding dresses, but not necessarily every cut flatters every figure.

Here are a few tips from us for finding the right dress for you body type.

If you are pear shaped

If you have big hips or a pear shaped body, you could either look for a classic A-line silhouette or a natural waistline that flows away from the hips. But if you want to emphasize on your curves, you could also choose a mermaid gown.

Our pick:

 

A natural waistline and a ruffled skirt to draw attention away from the hips:  Style 77956

If you want to highlight your hips, this beaded mermaid gown is a great choice:  Style CT105.

 

If you are petite

A strapless mermaid or trumpet gown is perfect for petites. You can also go for a style with a waistline above the natural waist, since it will make you appear longer.

Avoid dropped waist or big ballgowns;  you don’t want to disappear in your dress.

Our pick:

A strapless or one-shoulder mermaid gown is a great option for a petite girl: Style AK99

This high waistline will make a short body appear taller: Style EK992

 

If you are plus sized

Diagonal pleads along the waist have a slimming effect are a great choice for curvier bodies. Classic A-lines or ballgowns are also a good option.

Our pick:

Classic A-line with a sweetheart neckline and slimming pleads: Style EK977

A great ballgown with lace details and illusion neckline: Style EK967

If you are busty

Choose a V- or neckline or halter gown to show some cleavage. Don’t cover your chest, it will make you look even bustier.
