Wedding Dresses For Pear Shape Body

by Avid Thinker November 30, 2012

Figure Description: This figure type is smaller in the bust and waist areas of the body when compared to the hips, seat and/or thigh areas. Hip circumference measures 2”or more, larger than bust circumference.

Strategies: You want the focus of attention away from the hip thigh area and more toward the face.

The shoulders and/or bodice will need something there to add width in this area. This will create balance to the bottom half of the figure.

Suggested wedding gown styles: A-line wedding gown, Princess wedding gown and Empire-waist wedding gown. A Ball Gown wedding gown is not the “best” choice—but can be considered if you limit the fullness— especially for a short brides or a plus size bride.

Choose styles that have width at the shoulders like: off the shoulder styles, short sleeves, shoulder wrapped collars and bolero jackets or shrugs.
