Wedding Dress Style Guide For Your Body Type


Wedding dress style guide for your body type

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!

Petite Brides
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.

Curvy Brides
If you have curves, flaunt them! Many brides who have curves choose gowns with V-neck or sweetheart necklines that cover the décolleté but still call attention to their figure.

Fit and flare is a great silhouette because it will hug your bust and hip, while making a waistline look smaller.

Athletic Brides
Athletic brides should look for a clean fabric, such as silk or organza, with a trumpet or fit and flare silhouette to show off a fit body, while still adding shape.

Adding a belt will add definition to a waistline, and it’s a good way to add a pop of sparkle or color!

Plus-Sized Brides
If you are a plus-sized bride, it is important to choose a material that flatters your body. A-line or dropped waist gowns are great options!

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.

Slender Brides
If you are a slender bride, look for something with a simple and clean silhouette. Try to avoid anything that is overly embellished so the dress doesn’t take over your frame.

Busty Brides
Women who are blessed on top should look at gowns that have a scooped neckline. Scooped necklines open up your face and display your décolletage without showing too much cleavage.

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!

Melissa, the owner of Bucci’s Bridal, is excited to bring a brand new bridal boutique to the Lake Country Area, right where she grew up! She enjoys meeting new people and loves hearing personal stories while helping brides-to-be find their dream dress for their wedding day.
