Which Wedding Dress Suits my Shape?
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!
Wedding Dresses for a Bigger Bust
Spaghetti straps and deep v-necks might be out, but the good news is that as long as you have a beautifully fitting bra to support your ladies, there is a wide range of stunning bridal dresses to make you look and feel fabulous! 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!
Wedding Dresses for Pear Shapes
If you're all about that bass then you'll be pleased to know that a bridal gown can be the perfect look for you! Floaty shapes and intricate details are ideal to skim your figure in all the right places and draw the eye to your other assets! We're loving these A-line styles offering full-on Hollywood glamour or romantic realness for days...
Wedding Dresses for Apple Shapes
If you're concerned that some classic bridal gowns tend to draw attention to rounder tums then fret not - there's still loads of stunning dresses that will make you look and feel fabulous! Draw attention to slender pins and tanned shoulders with a daring split and romantic off the shoulder styling, or draw the eye with the delicate draping in this classic bardot gown.
Wedding Dresses for Petite Ladies
While you might not be the best suited to wide princess-style ball gowns, or wedding dresses with long trains, you can be bold in other ways - go for a well fitted dress to hug your figure with striking crystal, sequins or beading to shine and shimmer as you glide down the aisle!
Wedding Dresses for Curvy Girls
Love your curves on your big day with a plus size wedding dress designed to flatter your figure and get you feeling fabulous! The most important factor in choosing a wedding dress for fuller figures is to make sure it's tailored with curves in mind like this gorgeous figure hugging number in spectacular champagne sequins! Or if you're after something a little more traditional, this dreamy number by Gatsbylady London (available up to size 28) has floaty lace sleeves and a fit-and-flare design just perfect for that most special of occasions.
At the end of the day, the most important thing is to go with a style you love and a wedding dress that makes you feel your best self, whatever your body type! It's your day, so you make the rules!
