How to find the perfect wedding dress for your body shape – start with understanding Your Body Shape

Before diving into the world of wedding dress shopping, it’s handy to understand your body shape. While every individual is unique, there are several common body shapes that can serve as a starting point for selecting the right dress silhouette:

  1. Pear Shape: If you have a smaller upper body and gorgeous wider hips, you likely have a pear-shaped figure.
  2. Hourglass Shape: An hourglass figure typically features that dreamy cinched in waistline with balanced bust and hips.
  3. Apple Shape: This body shape is characterized by a beautiful fuller bust and midsection.
  4. Rectangle Shape: If your bust, waist, and hips have similar measurements making you look absolutely stunning, then you may have a rectangle-shaped figure.
  5. Petite: Petite brides are generally perfectly smaller in proportion – which may require specific dress alterations or petite-friendly designs.
  6. Plus Size: Plus-size brides have wonderfully unique needs when it comes to dress selection, finding that showstopper that is going to highlight those amazing curves.
