What Style of Wedding Dress Will Most Flatter Each Figure Type?
The style of your wedding gown should be one that complements your body type and makes you feel like a queen when slipping it on. This is our list of the most popular wedding dress shapes.
A-line: This gently flared gown offers a slim shape with a gradually widened hem. This silhouette is considered flattering on all body types.
Ball gown: With a fitted, corset-type bodice and a dramatically full skirt, this gown might feature a natural, basque, or dropped waistline. It’s a great way to disguise the hips, buttocks, or legs and to highlight your upper body.
Empire: The upper body is the spotlight with this high-waisted silhouette, which features a snug fit around your bosom and a skirt that cascades into a gentle column. This is usually a long, slim gown with a variety of necklines. It can be sleeveless, or with capped or short sleeves. This style is great for medium to large busts and a less-than-perfect waistline.
Mermaid or Trumpet: This body-hugging sheath flares at or below the knee to create a fluttering hemline. The hemline ranges from a gentle flare to one that's much more dramatic. This style can complement curvy body shapes.
Sheath: Simple and sophisticated, this minimalist style usually follows the body’s curves from top to bottom. Some sheaths are bias-cut, which causes them to cling. This is a perfect wedding dress for a well-toned body.
