Looking for the perfect wedding dress for your dream wedding day? It’s hard to know where to start with SO many dress styles and fits out there. Well, you’ve come to the right place because we’re going to help you find out what the right dress for your body type is and explain what each of the styles are!

Pear Shape

pear body shape

Aka… larger hips than bust.

The Ballgown
This is the Cinderella look! If you are not a fan of your curves down there, this is for you! You will love that the dress is so full that no one will know what’s under there. If you have a strapless dress, accentuating your bust and shoulders will help as well!

The Trumpet
This dress is great on a straight upper-half of the body and then gradually starts to flare out. This will look great hugging your hips and showing off those curves.

The Hourglass

hourglass body shape

This shape is when your shoulders and hips are very similar in measurement, while the waist comes in smaller.

The Mermaid
This is a perfect style if you have a lot of curves and want something to show off every curve! It hugs pretty tightly and then flares out dramatically from below the hip line to knee area.

Inverted Triangle

inverted triangle body type

Aka… broad shoulders/Small waist.

Apple

apple body type

This is a shape where the waist is larger measurements than the hips and the shoulders.

Empire
Empire waist dresses sit at the natural waist. This is great to slim the waist, hug the curves of your hips, and show off your bust. This is very flattering for the apple shape!

The Rectangle/Ruler/Straight Shape

rectangle body shape

This shape is very proportional all the way through shoulders, waist, and hips.

The A-Line
This dress is great for a straight shape because it will help give the idea that you have more of an hourglass shape. It flows outward gradually which gives the appearance that there are some curves around your hip area.

Sheath
If you have a balanced figure, this dress will accentuate every part of the body perfectly and give a slim look.
