The Best Wedding Dresses By Body Type

The Best Wedding Dresses By Body Type

Dress shopping can be a daunting feat, especially when you're looking for the best wedding dresses for your body type. To begin the process, you'll want to keep in mind the style of dress you really envision yourself in.

Here, we're sharing our plus size dress guide with our favorite wedding dress shape style tips, for finding the perfect plus-size wedding dress type that'll make you feel stunning on your wedding day! 

Ballgowns add balance to pear shapes 

There's nothing quite like a dramatic ballgown to make you feel like an absolute princess as you walk down the aisle. We also love this style to create balance for a pear-shaped bride. A beautiful ballgown will highlight your upper body while being forgiving to your waistline and hips.

Fitted gowns seriously flaunt your curves

Calling all bombshell brides! Fully fitted gowns are a glamorous way to show off your enviable curves. Confidently curvy brides can choose to showcase their figure with a sexy fitted style, and luckily for you, we have several stunning options to chose from.

A flowing, chiffon gown can elongate legs

It's no secret that we love chiffon. It flows so beautifully, often starting at the upper waist, creating an elongated look for shorter legs. Browse our wedding gowns with flowy skirts for a timeless wedding day look that you'll feel comfortable in all day long.

Wedding dresses with sleeves or thick straps to accommodate bras

Busty babes already know this trick, but opting for a dress style with mid or full length sleeves, or even wider straps can make wearing a bra more seamless. If you have a larger chest, try shopping for elegant sleeved styles.
