As a bride, you have your own, beautify body, which deserves to be adorned with a stunning wedding dress. Whether you are petite or curvy, you embrace yourself, and choose clothing that best complements your appearance. On a day, as important as your wedding day, you will certainly want to present just the right look, and the perfect wedding dress will certainly do the trick.

As you browse wedding dresses, you may be surprised as to how many styles there actually are. Are you aware of what style would best complement your body type?

Inspiring couples planning their big day is truly an honor. That’s why, here at Villa Russo, we have gathered some tips to assist you in choosing a wedding dress for your body type. If you are interested in learning more, be sure to continue reading:

  • Pear-shaped. If you represent a classic pear-shaped body type, you can choose a traditional A-line gown. A skirt that flares out in the formation of an “A”, from the waist to the floor, will assist in narrowing your midsection, as it floats away from the hips. To accentuate a more slender upper body, consider a V-neckline or a spaghetti-strapped bodice.
  • Petite. For the petite bride, you can showcase a sheath gown to highlight your slim figure. If you would rather create a more filling appearing, consider a ruched bodice, as the extra fabric will help to create an illusion of curves. In addition, lightly padded hater styles or the right push-up bra can help to create the look of fullness that you may be seeking.
  • Apple-shaped. Choose a dress that cinches your waist line and gradually flares out if you represent an apple-shaped body type. Also, consider a bodice with a lot of texture, such as lace details or ruche, to create a coreset-like appeal. Trumpet dress styles should be avoided, as it will emphasize the widest areas of your body, rather than where you are most slender.
  • Curvy. With many curves among your body, it would be ideal to choose a dress with a scooped neckline. Scooped necklines allow your face to be highlighted, without being too revealing. If, however, you would prefer a strapless gown, choose one with a slight dip along the neckline, such as a sweetheart. Ballgowns are also an ideal choice for flattering your curvy figure.

The right dress will have you feeling confident as you walk down the aisle!
