Choosing a style that suits your body shape on the big day will not only make you look amazing but also make you feel incredible too. You will want to highlight your best-loved assets in your dress so figuring out what shape you are and what silhouette works best for you is quite important.
Your retailer is the expert and will know exactly what shape will work for you but as a rough guide here are some hints at which shapes will be best.
This is all about producing curves, so add volume to your chest and hips to help create an hourglass silhouette. A great style to go for would be 12239, a bodice overlaid in ornate beaded embroidery flowing into a soft tulle skirt.
Look for an A-line, a gradual flare from a natural waist to the floor. This shape 11456 highlights the narrowness of the waist. This delicate beaded lace top and layered tulle skirt would work perfectly, finished off by a cute little crystal belt.
If you are blessed with the curves then show them off! A figure-hugging mermaid will serve to only enhance your silhouette. This gentle fishtail 11441 in tulle and lace will your silhouette your shape perfectly and the carefully placed appliques will highlight in all the right places.
Similar to the pear, go for an A-line with a clearly cinched waistline at the smallest point. The shape of style 11454 will work effortlessly with its illusion tulle top and contemporary belt highlighting your smallest point.
Opt for a shame that emphasises your natural shape and reflects your longer proportions. A simple silhouette works best with a lower waistline and if you choose sleeves go for full-length. This slim crepe dress 19071 will gently hug your silhouette and the slim belt will highlight your figure.
If you are this shape then you are wider on the top of your body with hips narrower than your shoulders. A V-neck dress works well to cover your shoulders and trick the eye. The figure hugging chiffon and plunging neckline of 11457 will create your dream shape and the incredibly ornate illusion back will give you that wow moment down the aisle!
