As a bride-to-be, you have to make sure that you choose a wedding dress that fits your body type and accentuates the best parts of your body. The key to choosing the perfect wedding dress is not to fall in love with a style but to choose a style that fits you.
For full figured brides, the best style is an A-line style wedding dress. This particular style lengthens your whole body without drawing attention to your waistline. Choosing a wedding dress with an empire-waist is also best for this body type because it is narrow right below the bust which will help conceal your hips and waist.
For large busted bride, off the shoulder wedding dresses work best with this body type as it draws attention upward. Full skirts are not a good choice on this body type as they will make you look large and bottom heavy.
For bottom heavy brides, your body type is the best in wedding dresses that bring attention to the upper body. Showing off your arms, back and neckline help draw attention away from your hips. Pleats and gathered fabric around the waist area is a big no-no. Corset style wedding dresses accentuate this body type and allow you to highlight your upper body. A-lines also look best on this body type.
Petite brides can choose A-line and cap sleeve wedding dresses. You want to stay away from sheaths which shorten the body, strapless gowns if the groom is much taller than you and very full skirts which will make you appear bottom heavy. The A-line style wedding dresses help to lengthen the body. Cap sleeve gowns work best while giving the feeling of a strapless gown.
