Typically a bride's rehearsal dinner dress is totally different from her wedding dress. Enter the little white dress. But there are so many different styles to the LWD: You can go short or long, flowy or body hugging, it's all about your style. Here are a few options for you that will flatter any body type, but would look especially amazing on curvier brides-to-be.
3. Embellishments are always a great way to draw the eye up from other areas you might not want them to be. And this dress flows for days, so that's an added bonus for a fuller-figured body shape. Swing Dress, $50, ASOS.
4. This elegant chiffon gown features a ruched waistline so it accentuates the bodice. Plus, it's floor length so it's a great option for brides who want more coverage. "Julie" Silk Chiffon Long Dress, $149, Donna Morgan available at Nordstrom.
5. This design's pleated details bring the eye up and takes it away from other areas. And the waistline is great, too, because it is full and hides so much. Short Cotton Sateen Dress, starting at $59.99, David's Bridal.
