Which Wedding Dress Suits by Body Type?

Choosing your dream wedding dress is something every little girl dreams of, although you might not still be planning on wearing the fairy princess look with matching wings you had your heart set on when you were five! There are so many styles to choose from it can get a little overwhelming, so to help you narrow it down we've put together a simple guide to answer the question "Which wedding dress suits my shape?"

Wedding Dresses for an Hourglass Figure

If you're blessed with an hourglass figure (and yes, we're jealous!) you'll be pleased to know that most dresses will flatter your shape, but there are still some looks to avoid. A simple shift or column style gown can end up looking baggy around the waist - so wear with care! But if you're looking to emphasise your assets then a fitted mermaid dress is a stunning option...

Wedding Dresses for Tall and Slim Girls

If you love the princess ball-gown look, you're in luck as tall girls can carry off wider skirts than their shorter sisters! But if you're after something a little more subtle to really flatter your figure then you might want to consider a 1920's retro look - simple column flapper dresses, or those with a drop waist are perfect for tall slim girls and it's such a romantic look - live your Downton Abbey fantasy!

Go for long sleeves for a bold look, or try something a little floaty - this cute midi wedding dress is a unique option that injects some personality into the big day!
