How to Choose The Perfect Dress for Your Body Type

Choose The Perfect Dress There are tons of options for buying a wedding dress. You can get one custom made, or you can have one that you really like tailored to your body size and shape. This is your special day. You should look and feel great and what’s more important than your wedding dress? You want to make sure that you don’t pick a dress that is too short, or too long. You don’t want to pick a dress that is too tight or too loose. A woman with an apple body shape usually has a larger bust and broader shoulders. The best dress for this body type is a V neckline. The hourglass shape has a bust and hips of equal proportion and a slim waist. Look for dresses that hug your curves. A mermaid style dress is a great option for hourglass shape. A banana body type is one that is very straight and tends to be petite. A column dress suits this body type well. Avoid ball gown style dress. A pear shaped woman has larger hips and should look for an A line style dress that is form fitted at the top and gradually flows out. Avoid trumpet and mermaid styles.
