Congratulations! You’ve found your dream partner and now it’s time to find your dream dress! You will be under the spotlight on your wedding day and it is only right to have a dress worthy of the occasion.

Wedding dress shopping can seem quite daunting, especially if you’re unsure of what shape and style you want. A great place to start before beginning your hunt is understanding the different silhouettes, finding what best compliments your body shape will make the choice a lot easier. Hopefully, this read will help you on your journey to say ‘yes’ to the dress.

 

If you want to look like a true princess, then this silhouette is for you. A fitted bodice with a full gown, ideal for slim hipped and fuller bust girls. The fitted bodice accentuates your natural waist curves and hides the lower body. However, this silhouette could drown a petite frame.

The A-Line silhouette complements all body types. It is a fitted bodice, which flows out into a soft skirt, replicating an A-shape, hence its name. The A-Line dresses generally have a slimming effect on brides, as well as accentuating height. Hugging in the waist and flattering the bust, this silhouette is perfect for all.

The perfect dress for showing off your curves. The fishtail emphasises your curves instead of slimming them. It is fitted on the body and then flares near the knee. The fishtail dress can be sleek and simple or sexy and glamorous.
