The Perfect Wedding Dress for Every Body Type

October 25, 2021

Wedding dress shopping can be challenging for anyone, no matter what body type someone has. There are so many different cuts, shapes, skirts, and bodices. It’s hard to know where to start. 

Imagine being at a bridal shop, but you don’t know where to start when looking for your ideal wedding dress. There are so many dresses, and you don’t know which ones will look best on you. You don’t have time to try them all on one by one. 

The solution is first to figure out your body type to find the dress that will suit your body type the best. This way, you’ll have a vision for what you want your dress to look like before even entering a bridal shop. 

Today, we will cover some tips and tricks so that you can find the best dress for you.


Wedding Dress Suggestion: Ballgown

If your shoulders are smaller than your hips or you have a defined waist with bigger hips and thighs, you have a pear-shaped body. Try to find a wedding dress that will draw the eyes to your waist while also showing off your lower half. If you want to look like a princess, you should look for a dress that keeps your midsection well-shaped and a skirt that flares out around your hips. This will create an entrance that stuns the audience.  

Make It Personal!

One way to make a dress less formal or traditional is by putting sleeves on your dress. This will give it a more elegant vibe. You can add a sleeve with lace or other delicate fabric to your bridal gown for a knockout look.  


Wedding Dress Suggestion: Mermaid

If you have a bigger bust, smaller waist, and hips that line up with your shoulders, then you have an hourglass body type. A wedding dress style that is sexy and fun, like a mermaid silhouette, will help show off your curves. To maintain the balanced look and accentuate your figure, look for a bodice that fits well with a skirt that flares out somewhere at or below your knee. This style is very sexy by fantastically hugging your curves. 

Make It Personal!

Giving your dress embellishments, like crystals or beading, is a great way to show off your beautiful curves – primarily if they draw the eye down from the top of the gown to the bottom, which will lengthen your figure. 

Inverted Triangle-Shaped

Wedding Dress Suggestion: Trumpet

A trumpet wedding dress is like a mermaid gown, but it’s slightly more subtle. A trumpet wedding dress emphasizes your lower body by flaring out at the lower hips. If you are someone with bigger shoulders, you’ll want a dress that brings attention to your hips. Also, you might want to try a V neckline, which will help to contrast the shoulders with the lower half of the body. 

Make It Personal! 

If you want to add your personal touch, back detailing is an excellent way of doing that. Since most people will be looking at the train, you can add buttons or lace detailing to draw everyone’s eyes upward. 


Wedding Dress Suggestion: A-Line

Try looking for a dress that narrows at the top and flares out at the waist if your upper half is narrower than your lower half or if you have a small torso. This creates a flattering “A” shape that will lengthen your figure and keep the shape of the dress defined. The “A” line flare isn’t as big as the ballgown flare, but it still makes your lower half look better, making it the best wedding dress for your body shape. 

Make It Personal!

You can draw everyone’s eyes upwards by customizing your dress with little details that make all the difference. To easily accessorize your neckline, you can add illusion lace or appliques on the bodice for something that catches the eye. 


Wedding Dress Suggestion: Sheath

If your hips, shoulders, and waist are all about the same width, you probably have a straight body type. A sheath silhouette is the best silhouette for this body type since it will make your features look their best by accentuating your body. 

Make It Personal!

Try adding a belted sash so that you can look like you have curves without adding extra weight to your silhouette. This will put the attention on your curves and give you a waist. You could try accessorizing with a sash or just a ribbon. Either way, it will completely change your bridal look.

WHY we're the perfect match


Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.
