Best Wedding Gowns for your Body Type

Walking down the aisle you want to feel beautiful, confident and even sexy! It’s a no-brainer that every bride wants to look stunning on her wedding day! You want to enhance your outward appearance as much as possible and show off your natural beauty. Wedding Gowns are one of the most important aspects to create a bride’s beauty. Choosing the best wedding gown for your body type will definitely make you look and feel more glamorous! Before we start with the different body types and dress you need to know that you are going to look beautiful no matter what! It’s your wedding day so if you want a short dress – you wear that short dress! If you want to wear a huge Cinderella ball gown – you wear that ball gown girl!

Wedding Dress Styles for Body

The Petite Bride:

Stilettos will do the job but our number one tip for you short bride is to play with lines, for example, have a slit or a low cleavage. A soft flowy dress with an A-Line will also make you look longer. Another option for petite brides is to wear short Wedding Gowns or to have fun with Convertible Dresses.

The Voluptuous Bride

Girls, how does the saying go? Flaunt what yo mamma gave ya! The voluptuous bride must embrace her beautiful body. Choose your favourite asset to highlight with your wedding gown. But if you feel self-conscious about your body why don’t you wear a loosely fitted wedding gown?

The Tall Bride

Tall brides, our advice to you would be to wear a beautiful big Cinderella ball gown. Your length is your biggest asset! You don’t have to wear uncomfortable heels. You can dance the night away with your ball gown and comfy flats.

The Apple-Sized Bride

For the apple-sized bride, our number one tip would be to get a wedding gown that’s tight around your bust and then lose out downwards. Long sleeves or gloves also look beautiful and flattering on the apple-sized bride. Another tip for our Apple Brides is to play with different layers of material over your tummy area.

The Pear-Sized Bride

You should wear a wedding gown that’s tight around your middle! If you want to show off your gorgeous body (we totally think you should) why don’t you wear a tightly fitted mermaid dress to show off those curves? A mermaid gown is a stunning way to show off what you’ve got in an elegant fashion.
