Bridal Gowns by Body Type

Knowing your body type is the first step towards finding a gown that is going to look as perfect on you as it does on Pinterest. Every bride is beautiful, no matter her shape or size, and finding a dress that enhances your best features will make you feel even more beautiful on your big day. 

Take a look below to find your body type and learn the style of wedding gown that's right for you!


Sheath gowns are a definite "do" for this body type. Dresses with minimal structure and vertical seams will enhance your slim figure, while still allowing you to look timeless and elegant. Gowns in this silhouette come in a variety of fabrics and cuts, allowing your style to be incredibly versatile.

If you have an athletic body-type, we suggest wearing gowns with thicker straps, "V" necklines, and cap sleeves. Often, sleeveless or strapless gowns can bring attention to athletic, broad shoulders, and end up making you look boxy. Choosing a slim gown with a thicker strap will downplay your shoulders and enhance your beautiful figure!

When your bust and hips are proportional, you have what is called an "hourglass" figure. We find that this body type is perfect for fitted, mermaid-style gowns. This shows off and plays up your already amazing hourglass curves.

If your figure is defined by your curvy hips, a gown that enhances your waist will balance your proportions and make your body look even more stunning. For this body type, we suggest an A-Line or Ballgown style dress. The skirts on these silhouettes begin at your smallest point and enhance your pear-shaped figure.

If you are a full-figured gal, you have a ton of options that are going to make your body look amazing! While some Curvy gals think that being covered-up is more flattering, we find so many brides with this body-type find that showing off their figure in a structured gown is what looks best.
