When it comes to the most important celebrations of your life, you wedding day involves wearing the perfect gown for your most awaited event, and all people’s eyes will be on you, including every detail of your wedding gown, so choosing the right gown for your body type is as important as uttering your actual wedding vows. It is best to choose a skirt which gradually flares out in an ‘A’ formation from your waist to the floor, and one that highlights the narrowness of your midsection to float away from the hips and thighs. A ‘V’ neckline or a spaghetti-strap bodice can showcase a more slender upper body, and you’ll need durable fabric like taffeta or satin because they don’t cling. For formal weddings, you can use an A-line silhouette, or you can go dress down with the use of a more casual fabric such as 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 want a strapless wedding gown, pick one with a slight dip along the neckline instead of one that goes straight across. A busty body type should not use sheen fabrics like satin, silk, or organza because it will just add volume the chest.
Having a plus-sized body shape needs an empire wedding gown that starts under the bust, flowing gradually into floor-length A-line without pleating on the fabric like a maternity dress. Choosing a too loose wedding gown style will create an illusion of more weight than you originally want to hide. If you want a more romantic look, choose a wedding gown with a stiff base, then adding an embroidered tulle overlay, and avoid those that are too flowy. An apple-shaped body type should have a style that cinches in at bride’s waistline’s smallest point, then flaring out gradually in an A-shape. Have a deep V-neckline to draw people’s eyes toward the vertical, and choose lace detailing or ruche for corse-like effects. 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. A straight-lined body shape can go for ball gowns or princess wedding dresses to add curves, volume, and form.
