What is the right Bridal Gown For Your Body Type? Choosing a bridal gown is one of the most important fashion decisions you will ever make in your life. Looking for the right gown for your wedding day is hard enough, but to add to the frustration you must find something that works with your body type so that you will not only look amazing, but also feel comfortable in. All brides come in different shapes and sizes so you must choose a gown that will be flattering to your shape. The following are examples of body shapes and gowns that will help you to make a good decision on choosing the right gown.

The Pear shaped Woman

The pear shaped figure is a figure that is smaller at the top and fuller at the bottom, which is in the shape of a pear. A full ball gown is always a good choice with an accented waistline because it will minimize the hips and bring focus to the smaller upper part of the body. This could be a wedding dress that has pleats. A pear-shaped woman should stay away from gowns that go straight up and down, as the fuller bottom will be pronounced in such a style.

The broad shouldered woman

A broad shouldered woman should choose a gown that has spaghetti straps which, to the eye shortens the width of the shoulders. An elongated bodice with a dropped waist also elongates the bodice and narrows the shoulders. A broad shouldered bride also should stay away from oversized sleeves and off the shoulder sleeves with ruffles.

The Short petite bride

A short petite bride should stay away from gowns that have too much going on meaning that gowns with too much fabric can have a swallow up the bride look. An example is a ball gown style dress with many pleats usually does not work well with petite brides. A modified A-line or princess A-line with natural waistlines are bridal gowns that look great on a petite brides. Also stay away from dropped waistlines this tends to make short brides look shorter.

The Thin tall woman

A great look for tall thin brides are the sheath wedding dresses, which are gowns that are straight up and down. This will show off the figure and make a bride seem thinner other than for example a very tall girl in a huge ball gown. The tall thin brides are usually the only ones who can pull off such a gown.

The Hourglass figure Woman

The hourglass figure women are women that have curves like an hourglass. The A-line modified gown with a dropped waist works the best with the hourglass figures. This will show off the figure while accenting the appropriate areas of the body.

The Thick waisted Woman

A thick waisted woman will look her best in the empire wedding dresses, which are bridal gowns that have a high waistline. Empire waistlines are usually right below the bustline and gradually fade to an A-line skirt. The thick waisted women should stay away from natural waistline gowns that emphasize the waist.
