Those wedding gowns that you flip through magazines, see on mannequins and look at on television appear elegant, gorgeous and to die for! But not every gown suit every body type. In fact, when you select a dress, you should focus on your body type and structure to ensure that you accentuate your best loved assets and complement your shape.
Those with petite figures should avoid overwhelming or large gowns. Otherwise, you will start to look even smaller. Choose right wedding gowns that have airy sheaths or ball gown styles. Delicate lace will make your structure appear elongated, give you more height. Form fitting tulle skirts are great and chic silk crepe look absolutely adorable. Empire waistline will give you longer legs illusion.
Plus Size Figures
Before choosing the wedding venue, decide on whether you want to celebrate your curves or wish to look smaller frame. Once you have decided that, you can choose your favourite dress. Asymmetrical pleating and embellishments from neck to knee will make you look slimmer. Empire waistline will make you look slimmer as well. Add chiffon sleeves for arms if you want. High neckline and slight train with sheath silhouette is perfect for looking long and lean. Go for scoop neckline if you want to show off your curvaceous figure.
Apple Shaped Bodies
Reveal or conceal, the choice is yours! Go for wedding dresses with square neckline if you don’t want something too revealing. Sweetheart neckline with straps is an option as well. Modest detailing on lace will make you look quite elegant. Keep cleavage in check with structured off the shoulder neckline. Scoop necklines with faux peplum is great for women who want to accentuate their assets.
Lean and Straight
Create the illusion of curves with voluminous peplum skirts. Sheath and geometric design adds allure. Add a slit to show off legs and create illusion for waistline. A-Line skirts are an excellent option as well. High neckline, swan neck and illusion is great for lean and straight bodies as well.
Glamorous belt detail goes a long way to accentuate your waistline. Fit and flare dresses are perfect as well, along with exaggerated dropped waist outfits and oversized tulle skirts. Go for pin-tucked waistline along with a close neckline to give your hourglass figure a further boost. If you are toned, go for sheer midriff or crop top styled outfits.
Pear Shaped Bodies
The triangle or pear-shaped body looks best with silhouettes that feature an empire or A-line style. Ball gowns are perfect as well. A-line gowns with gentle angle show the strength of your figure, while a skirt that flows away from thighs and hips look elegant on those with pear shaped bodies. Go for empire waists rather than solely focusing on natural waistline. That way you will flatter your gown’s silhouette.
So, which of these gown styles will you choose?
