Finding the Perfect Wedding Dress for Your Body Type

20 December 2021 | admin

One of the focal points of every bride’s special day is undeniably her wedding dress as every woman dreams of looking her absolute best that day. In this article, we list various types of gowns that fit different kinds of body shapes to save you from the hassle of finding the perfect wedding dress:

1. Ball Gown

The most distinctive trait of a ball gown is its very full (aka huge) skirt. The silhouette also has a contoured bodice and is fixed at the natural waist.
It is most fitting for Brides with boyish figures, the fullness of the dress adds curves, However, if you are petite, you might find yourself getting lost in all the material!

2. Mermaid

An hourglass body shape type is the most balanced of all with a proportionate top and bottom part of the body and a definite waistline. When you look for a bridal gown, choose mermaid gown that can flaunt your curves.

The shape of the Mermaid gown is determined by a slim, narrow, curve-hugging skirt that follows the line of the hips and thighs, and flares out below the knee.

Avoid wearing this gown if you know you do not wish to have a tight gown; this style is narrow.

3. A-Line

True to its name, the A-line cut is narrow at the top and gently widens along the body. It is most fitting for both pear and inverted triangle-shaped figures to balance out the shoulders and hips, and can portray a curvier profile on a straight or athletic shape. Avoid if you are looking for something really sexy.

4. Trumpet

A trumpet gown is a straight-lined skirt mildly flashed from the knee toward the hem in a trumpet shape. It is most fitting for curvy brides who are seeking a tailored yet easy-to-move-in dress. Avoid if you are not comfortable with clearly showing off your shape or if you have an apple or boxy body type.
