We wanted to put together a sort of listing that would help a bride figure out what sort of style best suits her shape and size. Which category do you fit into?
Try something with an asymmetrical side draping or ruching around the bust line and/or waistline. This sort of style will camouflage anything you don't want seen. Gowns with an A-line design to it is very flattering if you are trying to either hide or minimize your hip area. Take a look at these styles for inspiration.
Covering your cleavage completely will draw just as much attraction to them as showing too much cleavage will. Try going for a style that has a V-neck so that it breaks up the bust line and makes the neckline look more elongated. Even something with vertical seams can diminish a larger chest and put the focus on the whole gown, not just your bust line! Here are some inspirational ideas.
Go for an A-line style even if its just the skirt that is A-line and doesn't have allot of embellishments on it, the bodice could be more ornate and draw the attention upward. The ornate bodice could be as simple as ruching or being embellished with swarovski crystals, as long as the skirt is plain and not adding to the hipline your safe. See what we have chosen here for inspired looks.
Tall and Thin:
Not all tall and thin women have curves, so to get that look in your wedding gown and dazzle everyone there, try going with something that has different textures and dimensions. For example a fit and flare style gown with a sash or belt around the waistline will create the illusion of a defined waistline and hips! Look at the ideas we choose for your inspired look.
We all know that petite shapes can be a hard fit! You don't want to go with something too ornate and over embellished so that your frame is overwhelmed. Try going with something more on the simple and subdued side. If you have to have the embellishments try having it just one the bodice or maybe a swarovski beaded belt or sash, it could be as easy as adding a great necklace! Slim styles are definitely a plus for this body shape, it will fall in just the right places. Check out what we felt worked.
