How to choose the best Wedding dress for your body type?

A bride-to-be has a lot of important decisions to make, but the main one is saying "yes" to the dress of your dreams. Your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life, so all eyes will be on you - whether you’re walking down the aisle, having your photoshoots, your first dance, or mingling with the guests.

Finding the wedding dress can be easier when you know your body shape. When looking for a wedding dress, you want something that will emphasize your figure and accentuate you.

So, let's talk about body shapes and wedding dresses.
We will give you some advice on choosing a bridal dress to highlight your figure perfectly.


First of all, you should find out your body shape. We propose these classifications:

  • Hourglass shape

your bust and hips are approximately equal, the waist stands out

  • Apple shape

your bust and waist are rounded, your hips are usually smaller

  • Pear shape

hips are much larger than the bust and waist

  • Triangle shape

your shoulders wider than your hips

  • Rectangle shape

your bust, waist, and hips are equal

We would love to help you narrow the search, so we made some hints for you about the best choices of wedding dresses and which styles are the most flattering for your body type.

So, lets start!

Hourglass shape

Choose a wedding dress that highlights your curves. Look for dresses with a fitted bodice, a defined waistline, and a full skirt that falls below the hips. Perfect wedding dresses are:

If you want to hide your hips, look for a wedding dress that draws attention to your upper body. Choose a dress with a fitted bodice, a sweetheart neckline, and a full skirt that flows from the waist down.

If you like to show your hips, then choose a fitted dress.
