Wedding Day Attire Part 1: The Best Wedding Dress Styles For Your Shape

Hello Lovely People,

Wedding season is almost here! At least nine months before your celebration you should be browsing beautiful gowns to wear on your special day. Choosing your wedding dress can be just as magical as it seems on every episode of Say Yes To The Dress, but don’t put pressure on yourself if it isn’t! As long as you feel beautiful, you will look beautiful. We know how important this particular garment is and that there is a dress out there for any bride of any size. Trends come and go, but do what’s best for you and what you feel confident in because the classic bride is never out of style. Here are some options that we know you can rock depending on your body type.

If you are petite in stature, you don’t want anything to overwhelm your size. Some great dress options include mermaid style or a structured trumpet dress.

If you consider yourself a lady with long legs and tall in height, try and go for something to accentuate your model height! You have many options from sheath to slip, and even ball gown style.

If you have some beautiful curves, we think a great style dress for you would be an empire waist gown! You could also rock this dress with an invisible neckline, showing only a sweetheart shape!

If you are large up top, one of the most flattering styles is a square neckline, and it’s a bonus that these dresses typically have wide straps so you don’t have to struggle with a strapless bra!

If you are one of the leaner ladies, you have plenty of options! You can rock anything from an A-line style with a slit, to a fun two-piece gown to bare a little midriff

For the hourglass ladies, you are darn lucky that you can practically wear whatever you want to show off your enviable curves! Try the highly favorable mermaid style or anything with a cinched waistline.
