Whether you’re a classic, modern or bohemian bride, figuring out the most flattering silhouette for your wedding dress is a serious challenge. Taking your body shape into consideration is a great starting point whether you’re hoping to accentuate your favorite feature or aiming to conceal a few trouble zones (or both!). One timeless silhouette we’re in favor of no matter your shape or size is a strapless wedding dress. With the ability to highlight your arms, shoulders, and neckline (and in some cases, even your décolletage!), it's the sort of silhouette that’s incredibly flattering for the upper body and versatile on the bottom.

If you’ve decided that a strapless wedding dress is right for you, the next step is identifying what shape you want the rest of your dress to be. A full ball gown, A-line or tiered skirt is perfect for those craving a fairytale moment (these options are all great if you’re not in the mood to showcase your hips, legs or booty, too). A structured bodice that nips in at the waist is complimentary to these voluminous shapes as well. For a feminine and figure-flattering look, a trumpet or mermaid silhouette is stunning as is a fluid skirt with an elongated bodice to reveal the waist and hips. If you’re somewhere in the middle, a sheath or slim column dress is probably for you, skimming your figure just so without putting too much focus of your lower half.

Next is style. Strapless wedding dresses are designed for every aesthetic (seriously, there are so many options!). If you’re the fuss-free type, a minimal style is certainly up your alley while versions with structure will be appealing if you tend more modern. Everything from lustrous silk to matte crêpe is stunning in a pared-back silhouette. Feminine styles with boning or corset detailing are perfect for feminine tastes and appear super romantic whether you go for an embellished bodice or one detailed with lace. You can take it one step further and go for beading, rhinestone accents or delicate appliqué if a bit more glamour is attractive to you. A dress with a large bow sash, peplum detail or extended train is certainly right for those craving a dramatic element. If you’re in the mood for something sexy, a strapless wedding dress with side cut outs, a plunging neckline or low back is for you. Or, you can go for the corseted look and opt for a style that’s a bit sheer for a lingerie effect. Want to dial it up even more? An illusion dress is most definitely the answer.
