Guide to Choose Right Wedding Dress for Your Body Shape

When shopping for your perfect wedding dress, one of the most important things to consider is: which styles best suit your body shape? Just like to any other dresses, a wedding dress should also fit your body perfectly to give emphasis on the shape of the body. With that, it can resurface the unique physical beauty that you have, attracting even more the man of your life. To help you identify the perfect wedding dress (under £150) for you, here are some tips in choosing the right one.

measuring body shape

This shape is, by far and large, considered the ideal of feminine beauty. Ball gowns are perfect for those with smaller waistlines, while form-fitting gowns work just as well and cleverly show off your curves. Choosing a wedding dress like a dropped waist wedding gown, an updated look from the 1920s that's becoming very popular, works well for those with longer torsos and some height to them. Hourglass-shaped women are usually on the bustier side, so you'll want to avoid the harsh straight lines of some strapless gowns; instead, opt for sweetheart necklines or something with a little twist.


Apple-shape women have a rounder waistline, larger breasts and smaller hips. Look for dresses that cinch at the smallest point on the waistline, have an A-shape and flare out, a deep V-shaped neckline, or that create a corset around the body. Avoid dresses that are mermaid or trumpet shaped, or that cling to the widest part of the body.

Pear-shaped women have larger hips and thighs, with a smaller upper body. Look for strapless ballgowns, Empire-waist dresses, dresses with a V-shaped neckline, or anything that has a skirt that flares out from the natural waist. Also look for sturdy fabrics like satin. Avoid dresses with a clingy fabric, halter necks and mermaid-style dresses.


Finding a dress for your wedding day is all about knowing your body shape. The idea here is to look for gowns that create curves even if you don't have them. Elegant sheath dresses cut on the bias or bust-enhancing necklines create curves where none exist. A cinched waist dress on your wedding day, one with slightly puffier skirts, will similarly capitalize on your small waist and create volume.

So, what kind of body shape do you belong to? I believe that after read the information above, you must be more confident to select the best wedding dress for yourself. Just go ahead!
