Read on below to find your perfect bridal silhouette!

 

Mermaid

 

Martina Liana Style #1267

 

  

Curvy girls, this one’s for you! This hip-hugging shape emphasizes a curvy silhouette, and is perfect for highlighting your natural shape. If you have a more rectangular body shape, a mermaid wedding dress is also perfect for creating the illusion of curves as well. Sultry, sleek, and always stylish, the mermaid wedding dress is a favorite for a reason!

 

Ball Gown

 

Stella York Style #7119

 

 

Are you a petite girl looking to add a little bit of height to your stature? A ball gown wedding dress creates the illusion of length, perfect for elongating a petite girl’s frame. This style is also great for a bride with a pear shape, as the cinched waist and full skirt can create a sense of balance. This silhouette does have a tendency to enlarge a bride’s figure, so keep that in mind when shopping this style if you’re looking for something more slimming. 

 

A Line

 

Madi Lane Style Adrian

  

   

When in doubt, A-Line is the gold standard of figure-flattering bridal silhouettes! It works its magic on all body types with a cinched bodice and flowing skirt, effortlessly creating the illusion of a soft hourglass figure for a look that’s totally balanced. Whether your gorgeous shape is apple, rectangle, pear, petite, plus, or hourglass, an A-line wedding dress is sure to make your one-of-a-kind beauty shine!
