How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Dress for Your Body Shape
Updated: Jun 9
Choosing the perfect wedding dress should be exciting but finding a gown that complements your body shape and personal style can be a challenge.
The most important thing is to love your figure and to base your search off that. Once you start shopping, you will see that there are gowns for every body shape so you won’t have to settle for an average dress and can choose the one that is most flattering for you. Some brides want to show off their arms or shoulders while others prefer a gown that hugs their curves and there are plenty of dresses that will flatter your figure, regardless of your personal style.
The following tips will help you find the wedding dress you’ve always dreamed of:
If you want to show off your shoulders, there are many dresses that can help you with that. Bohemian style bridal gowns are very popular and perfect because they feature showy shoulders and off-the-shoulder sleeves that will draw attention to your collarbone and glowing skin. A low bun or loose waves will complement this style, so if your shoulders are the feature you’re most proud of, consider these options.
If you want to show off your back, you’ll need a gown that has a low back, which can be both sexy and glamourous and this feature can be incorporated into any style of gown, regardless of its shape or fit. A lot of brides choose longer trains if their gown has a low back because it creates the illusion of longer length, which is visually stunning.
If you want to show off your waist, there are so many dresses to choose from, including separate options, which gives you an even bigger selection to choose from. Tops come in a variety of styles, so whether you want a lot or little coverage, sleeves or sleeveless, you will be able to find something to your liking. You can pair it with a fitted skirt or big tulle one, depending on your personality and style and no matter which option you choose, you will be able to highlight your waist successfully.
If you want to show off all of your curves, there are a number of gowns to choose from and you can select a tight dress that accentuates your figure or a sheath gown that is not as fitted or tight but will still highlight your best features. Remember that you need to be comfortable so that you can dance and enjoy yourself, so keep this aspect in mind.
