How to Find the Best Wedding Gown for Your Body

NaheemKahnVeniceShopping for a wedding dress is not an easy task, no matter your body’s shape. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways you can find that perfect gown that will suit your frame just right. The wedding dresses Philadelphia has to offer are stunning – and you will be too when you wear them. Here are a few pieces of advice to consider in choosing a gown:

If you have a small frame with few curves, you will look fabulous in a trumpet skirt. A long mermaid skirt will make you look taller. If that really isn’t your cup of tea, you can choose a toga-style gown that will make you look like a beautiful goddess. Asymmetry will look natural on your small frame.

Pear-shape women tend to have a smaller bust with wide hips. Asymmetrical straps and tiers of fabric will look fantastic on your body, especially because they have a slimming effect. You might consider taffeta, which will not stick to the hips.

Plus-size women often choose to accentuate the bust and play it loose on the bottom. This is a great technique if you want to downplay the curves of your waist and bottom. Chiffon is a great choice in fabric to avoid snug-fitting clothing.

Busty gals should not try to cover the entirety of the chest. This will only accentuate the size. If you want to show some cleavage, aim for a gown made of silk-satin with a sweetheart or V-shape neckline. If you are aiming for modesty, choose an A-line gown with a scoop neck and wide straps. It will look fantastic!

While the classic hourglass shape is coveted, many women struggle to find a gown that suits the shape naturally. Show off your figure with a flattering silk-satin gown with a dropped waist. A decorated bodice with ruffles and beads may provide a dramatic look. A corset top is a great alternative.

If you have wide shoulders, you should highlight them rather than downplay them. Choose a dress with long sleeves that you can wear off-shoulder – think Sleeping Beauty style.

As you can see, there are plenty of ways you can dress for your shape. You are going to look gorgeous in the gown you choose.
