If you are a tall bride, there are dress styles that can accentuate your height or minimise it, whatever effect you are looking to create. A Sheath wedding gown fitted from top to bottom is the most flattering. If you have an hourglass figure, be sure to wear an A line gown with a dropped waist as this is complimentary to this body type.

A pear shaped bride should rather opt for a ball gown; which style balances out the hips and showcases her slim upper body. Professional wedding photographers will make you look good in most dresses, but understandably there are dresses in which you’ll look better in than in others. A curvy bride should be sure be sure to accentuate her hourglass figure in an A line wedding gown or a princess style wedding dress. A petite bride must steer clear of any wedding dress that overpowers her natural figure and will detract from her beauty. Also, when the appropriate gown has been chosen, it is important to have the dress hemmed to ensure a better fit.

When choosing a wedding dress, a voluptuous bride should invest in a gown with a fitted corset, for that extra support and definition. Your wedding photographer will appreciate the effort you put into choosing the correct wedding dress. A wedding dress that skims your curves, rather than clings to them is the most flattering.

Always steer clear of voluminous styles that overwhelm your figure like chiffon and crepe; a body skimming silhouette is best to enhance your features.The dress style best suited for this body type is an A-Line wedding dress, which flare slightly from the bodice giving a long silhouette.

Wrap-style dresses are also very flattering on this body type as they slim the figure by cutting the body and drawing the eye to both the top and bottom half, creating a slimming effect.
