Flattering Wedding Dresses for Your Frame

March 18

Regardless of shape or size, the secret to looking stunning on your wedding day is feeling confident and happy, which starts with wearing flattering wedding dresses! The choices surrounding your wedding gown are endless…. Strapless or sweetheart neckline? White, alabaster, diamond white? Flowing chiffon or classic satin? The options can be overwhelming, but we’re here to help. Take a look at our fit guide below to help you find the best dress for your body.

PEAR SHAPED

For brides with wider hips, look for a full skirt to balance your frame. Try an A-line gown that gradually flares from the natural waist to the floor, floating from the thigh, which will highlight a narrow waist. Looking to highlight a slender upper body? Try a gown with a V-neckline and thin shoulder straps.

VOLUPTUOUS

For curvier brides, we suggest a gown with ruching, which flatters the midsection. An Empire silhouette is especially flattering, flowing from the bust to a gradual floor length A-line skirt. A gown with our signature corset back closure will cinch and slenderize the waist.

SLENDER

Column and slim A-line gowns are perfect for petite or boyish figures. These gowns capitalize on your slender frame and offer a continuous line, while also adding height. To create curves, try a tulle ball gown that cinches at the waist and flares into a full skirt, which will accentuate a small waist and add volume to your hips.

HOURGLASS

Show off your curves with a mermaid gown that hugs the waist and hips and flares from the knees. These fit-and-flare showstoppers highlight your slim waist and embrace your natural shape. A dress with a crystal beaded embellishment at the hip will add a touch of glamour.

FULL CHESTED

For brides with large chests, a one shoulder treatment and corset back adds additional support. Love the look of a strapless gown? Opt for a wedding dress with a sweetheart neckline to draw attention to your face and display your decolletage, without revealing too much. A gown with a full skirt will help balance your frame.Flattering wedding dresses for brides with large chests - Maggie Sottero
