Wedding Gown Style Guide for Brides


Party Dress Express Silhouettes resized 600


Bridal gown shopping may be a bit stressful and confusing.  The number one rule when searching for your wedding dress is to find out what silhouette looks best on your body-type.  Your favorite dresses in the magazines may not be the most flattering on your body.  Here are a few guidelines to think about when shopping for your dream dress!


Straight Shaped Body (Thick Waist)

            Try dresses with an empire waist or an A-line.  This will slenderize the waist and compliment the body.  Necklines with an embellishment are great way to make sure your guests’ eyes gravitate away from the waist.  Stay away from dresses with dropped waist silhouettes.  Keep away from plain necklines.


Broad Shoulders/Full Figured (Big Busted)

            Ball gowns and A-line dresses compliment this body type.  The fuller skirts create a triangular shape, where the bust is visually the smallest part of the body.  Don’t try an empire waist dress.  The waist line will make the shoulders and bust appear bigger.  V-neck halter-tops look best, avoid strapless or spaghetti straps.

            Hourglass body shapes look amazing in dropped waist dresses!   This style accentuates a small waist.  It is the perfect silhouette for the bride who wants to show off her curves.  Sweetheart necklines are best for this body type.  Empire waist and ball gowns should not be worn by figure 8 shaped women.  To the right is a dropped waist bridal gown with a sweetheart neckline from Mon Cheri called Patrice.  




Bottom Heavy (Pear Shaped)

            Pear shaped brides look great in ball gowns.  The fullness of the skirt minimizes the hips and flatters the waist.  Strapless necklines with a slight scoop also compliment this body type.  Sheath dresses should be avoided.



            A-line silhouette dresses are best for petite brides.  It lengthens the body, which is perfect for a shorter woman.  Sweetheart and V necklines elongate the torso.  Sheath dresses tend to shorten a small body.  And ball gowns may swallow up a small frame.
