Are you looking for the perfect wedding dress that flatters your figure? Hopefully these tips will help you along in the process:
Definition: Smaller up top, larger on the bottom.
Look for: A dress with a natural waist, an a-line shape, and (ideally) a full skirt. Extra detail in the bust or a v-neck area will draw the eye upward. Avoid a high neck.
Definition: A full bust, full hips, and a full waist.
Look For: A tailored cut and a dress that skims that your body. Avoid dresses with too much volume.
Definition: Curves at the top and the bottom, with a smaller waist.
Look for: A dress with a defined waist. V-neck and deep scoop neck tops flatter curvy figures, unless you have a very large bust. A mermaid shape could also be pretty.
Definition: A full bustline, and narrower hips.
Look for: A short dress that shows off your legs if you’re having a casual daytime wedding. Avoid dresses with ruching or shimmery materials in the bodice, as they will make your chest look larger.
Definition: Lean lines, with a narrow bust and narrow hips.
Look for: A sheath dress, perhaps with a bias-cut. Ruching in the bodice will create the illusion of fullness. Consider choosing a dress with a waistband or sash to create more definition.
Follow these tips and you’re sure to find a dress that will have all your guests oohing and ahhing.
