Tying the knot? Every woman’s dream is to be in her most beautiful when she says “I do.” But before you dwell on other wedding details like flowers, venue, food and makeup, you must first find the perfect wedding dress. And how do you find it? The key is to know your body shape. Check below, so it will be easier for you to find a dress that will flatter every curve of your body.
What’s best for this figure is a Ball Gown. It has a full skirt that will make you look curvier and a cinched waist that will give you a nice silhouette. You should avoid this gown if you are petite as you will get swallowed up by its huge skirt.
If you are wanting to show off your curves, the Mermaid gown is perfect for you. The figure hugging skirt follows the line of the hips and thighs and flares out below the knee just like a mermaid’s tail. But if you’re not up to wear tight dresses, you should avoid this style as Mermaid chiffon wedding dresses are constricting.
Now, if you are petite, this is the perfect dress for you. A Column dress doesn’t flare out and the form-fitting style gives everyone the illusion that you are taller. Pear-shaped brides should avoid this though, because the silhouette will make you look unbalanced.
A Drop Waist Dress is best for brides who are slender and would want to highlight their trim middles and shape. It’s perfect because the dress hugs the waist and hips. This is not an ideal dress though, for the boxy figure because you might appear to have less curves with the dress.
A Trumpet gown works best for the curvy brides because a straight-lined skirt that flares from the knee toward the hem highlights every curve creating a very sexy look. But if you are leaning more on the conservative side, you might want to avoid this dress as it will clearly show off your shape.
What’s best for all body types is an A-line dress. It is narrow at the top and the wide skirt is gorgeously flattering on almost everyone. No wonder it is very popular and even the bridesmaids prefer wearing A-line satin bridesmaid dresses.
So, have you found out your body shape? Then you are now ready to start hunting for a dress.
