The Best Wedding Dress for Your Curvy Body Shape

A-Line Wedding Dress

Anything A-line, especially if it has an empire waist, can be very flattering, especially if you want more coverage. Because the waist starts right under the bust line and immediately goes out into an A-line shape, it's an ideal silhouette for brides who want to be more discreet.

This very popular wedding dress shape is defined by vertical seams that flow naturally from the bust line or shoulders into a flared skirt that creates one clean line.

Ball Gown Wedding Dress

Choose a timeless ball gown that highlights the most slender area of your torso—your waist! Ball gowns are an excellent choice for pear-shaped brides as they show off your smaller upper half with plentiful fabric on the bottom.

No matter your body type, a ball gown will make anyone feel like a princess. But think twice if you are a petite bride, this silhouette easily overwhelms a shorter figure.

Mermaid Wedding Dress

Go down the aisle showing off your curves in a dreamy mermaid gown. This sexy, slinky style hugs your silhouette from the bust through the torso. The skirt flares at or just below the knee creating the look of a fishtail. Best reserved for brides with hourglass figures and plenty of confidence!

Sheath Wedding Dress

Create the illusion of height and length with a modern sheath gown. The uninterrupted line of this silhouette never fails to flatter, and, as a bonus, it's a breeze to hem. Plus, Sheath gowns feature ample structure and support.
