Wedding is considered as one of the biggest events of a person’s entire lifetime, and choosing the best wedding gown for your body types is as important as saying 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. In order to create a more slender upper body illusion, you can go for a ‘V’ neckline or a spaghetti-strap bodice, and a sturdy fabric is needed such as taffeta or satin. Always remember that the classic A-line silhouette is great for formal weddings, and you can also use it for dress down using a more casual fabric such as raw-silk shantung or eyelet lace.
For a body type that is busty, it is best to choose a wedding dress having a scooped neckline, opening up your face and not showing a too much cleavage. If you prefer a strapless wedding gown, choose one with a slight dip along the neckline rather than picking one that goes straight across because it will just make your bust appear larger and contained. Bear in mind that sheen fabrics like silk, satin, and organza used on the chest area will just draw people’s attention to the bust area, and will create more volume.
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. Avoid wedding gowns that are too flowy, choose a fabric that can provide more structure like satin. 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. Avoid wedding gowns with trumpet styles, have a deep V-neckline to draw people’s eyes, not to the horizontal but the vertical section for a slender effect, and choose lace detailing. For tall brides, they can go for simple silhouette or simple princess wedding dresses with minimal ruffles and other embellishments, having a great emphasis to their natural shape. Princess wedding dresses are best for those body types that are straight-lined, creating curves where you don’t have them.
