Wedding Dress Ideas for Your Type of Body

by Avid Thinker December 11, 2012

Knowing the ideal dress style for your upcoming wedding is important so that you will be able to choose the most comfortable and fitting for this special day. Take a look at the tips below and get proper guidance to come up with the right decision.

Are you an apple shape?

For those with a fuller bust and short waist but slim hips, the key is to minimise the top with a V-neck, avoiding too much embellishment or detail on the bust area. To balance the hips with the bust, a fuller or A-line skirt is recommended. As apples tend to lack waist definition, a drop waist can draw the eye away from the waist and help to lengthen the upper body. Good foundation underwear to support the bust will make all the difference.

Are you a curvy shape?

The key is to work with curves rather than against them! Structured fabric such as Mikado and heavy silks work particularly well and a mermaid shape will accentuate the contrast between a small waist and larger hips and bust.

Are you a pear shape?

The pear is one of the easiest shapes to dress – a fitted upper body and full skirt are ideal, or a strapless neckline will show off a small upper body and arms.

Are you an hourglass shape?

The key here is to emphasise the waist. Work with the balance that exists with the bust and waist and have both areas fitted – a mermaid style with waist definition is ideal with some kind of detail drawing the eye to the waist.
