For the Hourglass Bride:
If you’ve got it, flaunt it! Embrace your curves, and show them off with mermaid, fit to flare, and drop waist gowns. These hip-hugging silhouettes will make any bride feel sexy on the big day. Want to showcase your curves even more? Look at gowns with corseted backs, ruching, and asymmetrical cuts. These flattering details will help smooth out any problem areas you don’t want to draw attention to. For our #curvybrides we recommend Mildred’s Morilee Julietta Collection!
For the Busty Bride:
While being well-endowed in the bust can sometimes be a blessing, it can also be a pain in the neck, literally! The key is to focus on giving yourself the extra support to feel comfortable and confident on your big day. Look at gowns with illusion necklines or straps. If you’re interested in taking the plunge and going strapless, display your décolletage with confidence in a sweetheart or scooped-cut bodice rather than straight across. We are in love with Callista Bridal’s gown, Alberto, with an A-Line silhouette and illusion straps and back.
For the Petite Bride:
A petite bride should first and foremost focus on not overwhelming her stature with a large gown. Instead, give your body a helping hand by wearing a silhouette, such as trumpet or sheath. These styles help to elongate your torso, and create the illusion of being taller. We love Allure Bridal’s W391! This amazing combo of lace, satin and English net is sure to bring your fiancé to tears. Let us not forget to mention the jaw-dropping illusion train!
For the Boyish Bride:
Don’t fret! If you are more lean-and-straight than curvy, there are still a lot of gowns out there for you! Stick to gowns with voluminous skirts like ball gowns, which cinch your waist; or, take a look at sheath gowns with billowing fabrics. These will help create curves and take your body to a whole new level! Our pick for you is Garden Party from Ivory & Co. This gown has a silk taffeta bodice with french lace to make any bride feel beautiful on the big day!
