Do you have large breasts? Are you petite? Each body type carries specific prerequisites concerning the choice of wedding dress. Find which body type you have and study our advice to find out what suits you the most, but also what to avoid.

PEAR-SHAPED
What to look for: An airy skirt, which gradually opens in an A-shape, is exactly what pear-shaped girls should wear. Also choose thicker fabrics such as taffeta and satin, which are very effective in hiding body defects, since the fabrics do not stick on the body. As for the top part of the bridal dress, you should go for a V-shaped neckline or a top with thin straps, which give the impression of a more shapely body.

SMALL BUST
What to look for
: A dress with extra fabric around the chest will give the impression of a richer bust. Even the right choice of bra will add extra curves.

FOR TALL BRIDES
What to look for: A wedding dress with a balanced neckline. It will illuminate your face and accentuate your body without being too revealing. If you love strapless dresses, then avoid the ones with a straight line (they will make the chest look bigger than it is) and chose one that is heart-shaped. As for fabrics, avoid anything … shiny (like organza, satin and silk) as they add volume and will draw more attention to your chest. Also avoid the heavily decorated fabrics.

APPLE-SHAPED
What to look for:
In the case of this body type, the upper part of the wedding dress that is selected should give the impression of corset. Avoid trumpet-styled dresses, which emphasize the wider parts of the body. As for the neckline, choose a dress with a deep V-shaped neckline so that it draws the attention of the eye vertically and not horizontally.

FOR THE PETITE
What to look for: For trumpet-shaped dresses, in A-line and minimal form. It would be better if the waistline comes slightly above your natural line so it makes you look taller. As for the fabric, you can choose whatever you want, but make sure the details are discreet. So forget about big bows and huge flowers.  Avoid over-volume skirts, if you do not want to look like you are drowning in the fabric!  A wedding dress you should keep away from is one that stops just above the calf as it would give the impression your legs are even shorter than they are.

PLUS SIZE
What to look for: An empire dress, where the skirt starts just beneath the bust and reaches the floor in A-line is what you need. Make sure, however, that the empire does not start from the chest and that the fabric does not have pleats because it reminds us of pregnancy dresses. Moreover, the dress should follow your body. If it is too loose then it will add pounds. Avoid draperies and prefer dresses that have structure.
