Your wedding day is considered as one of the most important events of your life, and choosing the right wedding gown for your body type is as important as saying “I do.”. Having a pear-shaped body type would need a skirt that slowly flare in an ‘A’ formation from your waist down to the floor, with great highlights to your narrow midsection and moving the eyes away from the hips and thighs. The best fabrics for the pear-shaped wedding gown is either taffeta or satin because they don’t cling. An A-line silhouette is great for formal weddings, or you can also go dress down with the use of a more casual fabric like raw-silk shantung or eyelet lace.
If you are busty, look for a dress having a scooped neckline to open up your face and not showing a lot of cleavage. If you prefer a strapless wedding gown, choose one with a slight dip along the neckline rather than picking one that goes straight across because it will just make your bust appear larger and contained. A busty body type should not use sheen fabrics like satin, silk, or organza because it will just add volume the chest.
If you have a plus-sized body shape, it is best to pick a wedding empire dress with a skirt that starts under your bust and flows gradually into floor-length A-line. Choosing a too loose wedding gown style will create an illusion of more weight than you originally want to hide. It is best to choose a wedding gown made of satin to have more structure and avoid styles that are too flowy. A bride with an apple-shaped body type needs to find a wedding dress that cinches in at waistline’s smallest point, then flaring out gradually in an A-shape. Avoid wedding gowns with trumpet styles, have a deep V-neckline to draw people’s eyes, not to the horizontal but the vertical section for a slender effect, and choose lace detailing. If you are tall, create a simple silhouette for great emphasis to your natural shape, with a lower waistline, and avoid gowns with a lot of embellishments such as a princess gown. In order to have flow and illusion of curves, straight-lined body shape is great for a princess wedding dress or ball gown.
