To get a wedding dress with the perfect fit, it's essential to determine the most flattering shape for your figure.

Finding the perfect wedding dress can be difficult for any women, yet in the past plus sized women have had little or no other options when it came to choosing their dresses besides the few allocated dress styles. Thankfully in today's modern wedding industry, many designer brands and dressmakers cater to the plus sized figure, offering up a range of dresses, styles and fabrics that ensure that every woman can find her plus size wedding dress.
For women with pear-shaped figures, the main objective is to balance the top half with the lower half of your body. Two piece gowns are ideal for this body figure, as they accentuate the upper half of the body and divert attention away from the hip area. A line gowns are also ideal with the pear shaped figure, as they also help drastically with balancing the figure. Also try a strapless, off-the-shoulder or v-neckline at the top of the dress to give off the illusion of "more going on" at the top of the body and, again, adding balance to the pear-shaped figure. Those with this figure type should stay away from halter-neck gowns, which can add to the appearance of large hips, as well as pleated or gathered skirts. Straight designs should also be avoided, as this will not serve to hide any bulkiness in the hip area.
