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.
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.
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.
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.
If you are small chested
A sweetheart neckline or a deep V-neckline will add volume to your bust. Try to avoid a straight neckline.
