Understanding Your Body Type

Each person's body is unique, and finding a wedding dress that flatters your figure is the key to feeling confident and radiant. Here, we highlight different body types and offer suggestions on how to choose a dress that complements your shape:

Pear-shaped body

If you have a pear-shaped body with fuller hips and a smaller upper body, consider A-line or ball gown silhouettes. These styles emphasise your waist while balancing out your proportions.

Hourglass body

Celebrate your curves with a mermaid or trumpet silhouette that hugs your waist and hips, accentuating your hourglass shape. Sweetheart or V-neck necklines can also beautifully enhance your assets.

Apple-shaped body

Options for empire-waist or A-line dresses that create a flowing silhouette and draw attention away from the midsection. Look for details such as ruching or embellishments that add interest to the upper body.

Petite body

For petite frames, choose a gown with a sheath or fit-and-flare silhouette. These styles elongate your figure and create the illusion of height. Avoid overwhelming details and opt for simpler designs.

Athletic body

If you have an athletic build, explore gowns with feminine details such as ruffles, lace, or beading to add softness and enhance your curves. Consider a modified A-line or ball gown silhouette to create a more defined waistline.

Regardless of your body type, it is important to feel comfortable and radiant in your dress.
