Wedding Gowns for Your Body Type

Every wedding gown isn’t for every bride. The key is to find a gown that flatters your figure, while downplaying the areas that aren’t so perfect. Whether you are short, tall, thin or curvy, you can still be a beautiful bride. Now tell you some tips on how to find the perfect wedding gown for your body type.
The bride is a variety of people, and we consider the all encompassing “American” woman when designing. From different body shapes, heights, backgrounds and sizes. We design a variety of styles, but ultimately want to highlight and accentuate a woman’s body so she feels her best on her big day. We want to make all childhood dress up fantasies a reality, no matter what size and shape the bride is.
Since finding a gown is so emotionally charged, I absolutely advise brides to keep an open mind when shopping for their gown. When a woman begins her search for her gown, most have their “dream dress” in mind, and they’ve thought of this for some time. My best advice to brides when I work with them is to try on the “dream dress”, but also try on several other silhouettes…step outside the box. I advise this because trying on several varying styles will really help the bride see what style is most flattering on her. This is your big day, when all eyes will be on you. Instead of hiding what you have, show it off! It’s your time to shine. Embrace the beauty that you are!
I created and introduced new mermaid and trumpet shaped gowns this season to really flatter the figure, in addition to the classic strapless wedding dresses, A-line shapes we are known for. These give women with curves (pear or hourglass) another option to celebrate their bodies. For brides who carry a little extra weight in the middle, empire or A-line wedding dresses are always a good choice. It helps bring the attention upward, and smooth out the middle. Wrap styles are also good to help trim the mid-section if the bride happens to not want to go with an empire, flowing style. Boyish shaped brides do well with gowns that really accentuate the waist and give them shape. Brides with broad shoulders can benefit from off the shoulder v-neck and cap sleeve styles. The V-neck wedding dresses help create a new focal point-the decolletage, and the cap sleeves wedding dresses soften the shoulders. Halter wedding dresses can also be a good choice, but they should compliment the collar bone.
As for how a bride should feel when she finds her dress … a bride will always know the perfect dress when she’s in it. It is a very emotional moment when a bride finds “the” gown. It’s an absolutely magical moment for them, and whoever is with them. As a designer, it’s a wonderful moment to witness and be a part of. It’s very special.
