A-Line Wedding Dresses. Flattering for all brides can never go wrong for your contempoary themed wedding.
Petite Body Types
For your petite body shape, simple reigns supreme, minimalist is the key to bring out the most of you. Skip 3D accents — like luxe blooms — in favor of intricate embroidery, light beading and one-dimensional appliques for design details that won't overwhelm.
You may also consider empire waistline which creates illusions of long legs as well or sheath silhouette which makes your body appears elongated.
Whether you want to create the illusion of a smaller frame or celebrate your curves, we've got you covered (or uncovered). An empire waistline creates a lengthening effect while some fluttery chiffon sleeves act as the most ethereal cover up. A scoop neckline shows off your voluptuous shape and lets you avoid a strapless bra. A high (or scoop) neckline, sheath silhouette and slight train are the ultimate trio to help you look long and lean.
Busty Body Types
If you're a busty bride, you've got two choices: reveal or conceal. Either way, finding the right gown starts with pinpointing the perfect neckline. A square neckline looks great on almost anyone, but it's especially great for the well-endowed because its not too revealing. Strapless gowns can be tough for brides with a larger bust, but the straight-across version actually minimizes your assetsPlunging V-necklines are typically too risquè for big-busted girls, but this more subtle dip gets it right. A subtle dip won't hide your curves completely, but it will soften your sex appeal.
Lean-and-Straight Body Types
Because floor-length gowns were made with your model stature in mind, you've got lots of options to choose from. But, if you're hoping to create the illusion of curves — we've got a few tricks. A voluminous peplum skirt acts as a stand in for curvy hips. Bodycon goes bridal with contouring seams that create "imaginary" curves. A sheath will accentuate your statuesque frame. Consider a wedding dress with a slit to show off your great legs. A high neckline paired with a full, A-line skirt showcases and balances your height at the same time.
Hourglass Body Types
Work your womanly curves in a bodycon bridal gown or hide your hips in a big ball gown — either way, your gown should show off your trim mid section.A glitzy belt detail is a glamorous way to highlight your tiny waistline. An exaggerated dropped waist and oversized tulle skirt keeps all eyes on feminine form. Fit-and-flare are three words you should get very familiar with. It's a curvy girls go-to silhouette. Hourglass is one of the only body types that can pull off a true mermaid silhouette — a style that flares out just below the knee.
