How to Find the Perfect Wedding Dress for Your Body Type

When it comes about dress selection, it puts you in dilemma and when it is about a wedding dress, you may become more confused and sometimes worried.

Don’t worry. Here are a few tips which may help you in making perfect selection of a dress for your wedding day:

Best dress for a plus-size bride


If you are plus-size, then you should go for an empire dress with a skirt which starts just under your chest and flows into a gradual floor length. A-line shape is best for girls which are plus-size. Don’t let your dress be too lose, this way you would look fat and shapeless. Make sure that the empire seam doesn’t start on yours chest and there is no doubling up of the fabric because it will make your dress look like similar of maternity wear. Use the fabric which provides a shape to our body. Don’t lose anything too flowy. Choosing gown with stiffer base and an embroidered tulle overlay is a great idea.

Best dress for a tall bride

You can wear whatever you want, if you are confident with your height. You should opt a strapless gown if you don’t want to draw other’s attention to your height. A strapless gown with a lace top and crepe, organza or satin skirt is best idea for you.

If you want to emphasize your natural shape then you should focus on every aspect of your bridal dress. If you want to reflect your longer proportions, get your dress designed carefully. If you’re wearing long sleeves, they should go past the wrist. You don’t want to look as if you’ve borrowed a gown from someone shorter than you.

Best dress for a petite bride


A petite girl can wear anything. “hollow-to-hem” style is mostly recommended for those who have a petite body. Hem and proportion of dress are scaled proportionally to the bride especially those with lace or embellishment. You can also go for a sheath. Trumpet and A-line gowns also suit petite shape brides. Make appear the lower half of your dress longer. You can choose any fabric.

Best dress for a pear-shaped bride


Accent your shoulders, bust and waist if you have got a pear-shaped body. Choose an A-line gown with a natural waist. Consider accessorizing with a grosgrain or embellished belt. Also, choose a dress with a very interesting bodice, whether it has crouching detail or artful beading. I would avoid texture or dimension on the skirt and opt for a clean silhouette on the bottom.”

Best dress for a busty bride


You can go strapless even if you are busty. There are many foundational undergarments in market that may give you support. If you are more comfortable with straps, go for it. You don’t need to be worried at all, for this auspicious occasion but keep in mind that a low open back cannot be a good style for you. Avoid the fabric on the bodice with a sheen on it as it will add volume and draw attention to your chest.

Best dress for an hourglass figure


A girl with hourglass figure can wear almost anything. Your body is going to bring any dress to life, so most silhouettes are going to look great on you. If you are short in stature, you should go for an elongating style such as a gown with asymmetrical or vertical elements. Choose a v-neckline or one shoulder. It will look awesome on your figure. And if you are taller with hourglass figure then you should go strapless.

Best dress for small bust bride


If you are smaller bust and want to wear strapless bridal dress, demi cups are the best option you should go for. Or you can wear anything with a plunging v-neckline. Extra fabric on your top body will fill out and create the illusion of curves. Right bra will provide a nice boost if you are not going strapless.
