Petite Body Types

A Wedding gown with empire waists will definitely draw the eye up. Just be careful of ballgowns or anything larger that could overwhelm your small frame. We recommend a ‘Fit and Flare’ style that is fitted to your body and then flares at the knee. This will give the illusion of height!

For slim shapes

Plus-Size Body Types

Focus on a dress that plays up your shape. If it’s too loose, it will add kilos. Anything A-line with an empire waist can be flattering for a Bride who wants to be a little discreet when it comes to her weight.

Busty Body Types

Nothing beats a good V-neck gown that will minimize the width of the bust and elongate the neckline. Draw attention away from your chest and look for a dress that attracts everyone’s eye towards the hem.

Straight Body Types

Let us give you the definition. If your shoulders and hips are similar in size, you have a straight lined figure. Give that attention to your bust line or a dress that bells out. You could also try wrap dresses or one with a belt.

Hourglass Body Types

We love hourglass figures! Show off your beautiful curves with a mermaid, trumpet or sheath silhouette. Why not accent your waist with a beaded belt. We also adore ruffles and tiers.. just saying!
