Finding a gown that's right for your body type is the ultimate key to wedding dress shopping. No two brides are the same shape, so why would one gown, or one silhouette even, work for all? But, don't let that fact discourage you. Designers show a slew of new gowns each season that come in a variety shapes, sizes, colors, and fabrics. There is a gown out there for everyone. For a quick tutorial on which silhouette is best for your body type, look to these Casablanca style for some gorgeous guidance.

The reason A-lines are one of the most popular bridal styles is because it works like magic. Cinching your waist at just the right spot to highlight what you love, all the while hiding what you might not, its graduated volume gives you a more forgiving shape while still letting you feel absolutely beautiful. This particular A-line gown (above) is special because of its gorgeous beaded bodice and lace skirt — the stark contrast between the two different types of detailing allows your waist to look tiny and your skirt to look romantic.

Lean and Straight
If you're lacking in natural curves, create them with a flowy sheath. What makes this dress a total winner, though, is the belt, which creates a more dramatic waistline and division between the bust and hips for added drama. Plus, the slim-fit silhouette will highlight your slender figure, boosting your statuesque shape.

If you're petite, the one thing you don't want is for a wedding dress to overwhelm your figure. That's why a sheath or mermaid dress is the best bet. The straight cut of the torso will elongate your body. The vertical details on this Casablanca dress are a plus, because, in addition to the trumpet skirt's height trickery, they also add length to your shorter frame.
