If you are a bride to be, you have most likely begun searching for your dream dress. There are thousands of different styles and designs available today and you want to make sure to choose the silhouette that will make you look and feel your very best on your big day! Take a look through our guide to get an idea of what would work well for your body type!
If you are a petite bride, avoid overwhelming your small frame. Look for a gown that hits above your natural waist in order to create the illusion of a longer torso and legs.
Sheath styles are up and coming and won’t weigh you down! There are many options for necklines, but think about a low open back to add a bit of sexiness.
Fit and flare is a great silhouette because it will hug your bust and hip, while making a waistline look smaller.
Adding a belt will add definition to a waistline, and it’s a good way to add a pop of sparkle or color!
Fabrics with ruching, such as silk dupioni, satin and taffeta, look great on fuller frames because a-symmetrical lines create a cinched look while adding length to the torso or legs, creating a figure flattering silhouette.
Stay away from necklines that go straight across, they tend to make the bust look larger and shelf like, drawing more attention to that area!
