Posted: Jul 26, 2012 2:45 AM
Your wedding dress should reflect the formality and theme of the wedding in addition to your own sense of style. For brides-to-be, knowing exactly what type of wedding dress suits your body shape and at the same time meets your idea of the dream wedding dress can be a challenge in itself.
Here are some of our typical body shapes with suggestions of wedding dress styles that are designed to flatter your best features.
Pronounced bust, well defined waist, curvy hips and shapely legs - think Marilyn Monroe. A strapless or halter neck wedding dress will suit you perfectly with a fitted body to flatter your feminine curves.
Narrow shoulders, small bust, wider hips and full thighs. The stunning and ever fashionable empire line or a-line wedding dress will suit you best.
Wide shoulders, medium bust, straight waist and narrow hips. Try on a strapless or shoestring strap wedding dress with a fitted waist. This style is a classic, timeless look - you will adore it!
Round Waist Narrow Hips
Wide neck, full bust, thicker waist. Look for wedding dresses with a lower or sweetheart neckline that will elongate your neck and accentuate your bust. A fitted or drop waist will lengthen your torso, slim your line and make you feel absolutely fabulous.
Wide shoulders, undefined waist and bottom, average sized bust. If this sounds like you, wedding dresses with an A line shape are ideal as are empire waist styles to soften your form, lengthen your posture and add volume to your behind.
Your budget will help to determine whether you choose to find a couturier, home dressmaker or purchase your wedding dress off-the-rack.
While highlighting your best features and camouflaging your imperfections, make sure that you will feel comfortable and relaxed in whatever style wedding dress you choose.
