Choose Your Wedding Dresses Depending on Your Figures

There are so many things you should take in mind when buying the wedding dress for your big day, but facing so many kinds of silhouettes you would fall in love with them, how to pick out the right dress for yourself, the below things you should know, hope these would help you.

v-neck a line wedding dress

For hourglass-shaped brides: Often seen as a body shape which can wear anything, it’s still best to pick a dress that accentuates your waist, as this will show off your best asset. Two-piece gowns will enhance an hourglass figure. Hourglass figures also look great in corset dresses. Sweetheart necklines and bodices emphasise a fuller bust. A-line dresses with a dropped waist show off an hourglass bride's balanced figure. As your chest and hips are already balanced it’s best not to add weight to either half. Avoid empire-line silhouettes and ball gowns.

For triangle-shaped brides: A V-neck dress works well to cover up wider shoulders. Scoop or wide necklines can also work well on triangles. Wear a dress with a bolero if you want to cover up the tops of your arms. Sleeves are great for covering wider shoulders, and are perfect for winter weddings. Add interesting details, such as embroidery and bows, around the middle and bottom of your dress, as this forces the eye downwards.Puffed sleeves will draw attention to your shoulders, as will halter and off-the-shoulder necklines. If you want to avoid drawing attention to an amble bosom, steer clear of embroidery and lapels around the neckline.

For apple-shaped brides: An empire-line dress will de-emphasise your waist, giving you a leaner look. A ball gown will cover up all those body areas you're not so keen on. Dress Dos: An A-line dress with a dropped waist looks great on everyone. Princess-line and basque dresses draw too much attention to your middle, and a sheath will make you look heavier. Avoid spaghetti straps which can cut into your shoulders.

For pear-shaped brides: Princess wedding dresses disguise fuller hips and put the focus on your better half, balancing your torso and bust. Strapless ball gowns work like princess dresses, emphasizing all your best bits.Empire line dresses are also a great choice, as they highlight the smallest part of your body. Avoid tiered, trumpet and mermaid style dresses which draw attention to your bottom. Sheaths are also unflattering.

For tall brides: The height of a catwalk model, you tower above your friends. Tall brides can carry off almost any dress style. Just pick the best for you. Stay away from empire line dresses, which risk looking almost tent-like on willowy frames.
