60 Wedding Dresses Perfect for Pear-Shaped Figures

Find out how to flatter your pear-shaped figure

Updated 09/25/17

Let's be honest—wedding dress shopping can get a little stressful. But the reality is, there's only one rule of thumb when it comes to wedding dress shopping: stick to what works for your body type. And the most common body type among women is a pear-shaped body. This body-type means a wider hipline than shoulders—like an inverted triangle. So what are the best wedding dresses for pear shapes? Flattering a pear-shaped body is all about highlighting the natural waistline. If you have a pear-shaped body that means going for a wedding dress with voluminous details on the bodice, a fit-and-flare silhouette or natural waistline.

Look for an a-line wedding dress or a ball gown that cinches at the waist, and keep the focus on the bodice.
