Choosing a Chic Wedding Gown that Suits Your Body Shape

When selecting a chic wedding dress, consider elements such as body type, comfort and confidence. We suggest consulting with your personal bridal stylist to discuss the parts of your body that you want to accentuate or minimize. To further guide you, here are some tips for discovering a chic wedding dress for your individual shape:

Pear-Shaped Brides: If you have a narrower upper body and fuller hips and thighs, consider an A-line or ball gown silhouette. These styles accentuate the waist while providing balance to the lower body.

Hourglass Brides: For those with well-defined and balanced curves, wedding dresses that cinch at the waist and follow close to the body, such as mermaids and trumpets, are ideal.

Apple-Shaped Brides: For brides who have a fuller upper body and a more narrow lower body, consider an A-line or modified A-line silhouette. These shapes provide balance and effortlessly elongate the body.

Rectangle-Shaped Brides: This body type typically features a narrow frame where the bust, waist, and hip are all equal in size and proportions. Opt for a sheath or column gown as it accentuates the long and lean stature.

Petite Brides: Brides with a shorter stature may want to consider simpler designs with delicate or minimal embellishments. A sheath or soft A-line silhouette elongates the body while open necklines, such as strapless or V-necklines, further lengthen the overall frame.

Plus-Size Brides: Fit-and-flare, A-line, and ball gown silhouettes are stunning choices for plus-size brides. Details that accentuate and cinch the body, such as corsets and ruching, are ideal for providing physical comfort and visual definition.

While these tips offer a starting point, we believe the most crucial factor is how the dress makes you feel!
