What suits your shape?

by Grace McAdory September 20, 2017

What suits your shape?

Ah the beauty of wedding dress shopping, it’s a beautiful thing. For most brides, walking into a bridal boutique can be quite overwhelming. Whether you have your sights set on one specific type of gown, or you are open to all options, it’s still good to know the basics. Here’s a few tips to help you pinpoint the perfect wedding dress silhouette for your figure.

 

 

Morilee Wedding Gown - Mirjana 8189 Mermaid/Hourglass

Looking to enhance your figure? You’ve got the curves, now accentuate them! Mermaid gowns are known for being skin tight, and definitely hug your hourglass figure in all the right places. Check out our mermaid style gowns here for more information.

 

 

David Tutera Wedding Dress - Etta 217220 Fit and Flare/Petite

Being short is NEVER a bad thing! Choose dresses that elongate the torso and have details. You could also go for a killer trumpet fit & flare look if you like tighter dresses. Unfortunately, ballgowns might look a little overwhelming, so it’s best to avoid them. Click here to view all of our petite gowns now!

 

 

Morilee Julietta Wedding Gown - 3201 Trumpet/Curvy

Celebrate those curves! Look for a skirt that starts just under the bust line. This way, the smallest part of your torso is accentuated! Make sure your dress isn’t too loose either. You could also look for a dress with excellent strategic pleating. No matter what size you are, ADU is on a mission to help you find the dress of your dreams! Click here to shop now!

 

 

Sophia Tolli Wedding Gown - Venus Y21760 Ballgown/Athletic

Hit the gym often? Or you might just have a natural athletic build. Either way, there are definitely certain dress types to fit an athletic body type. Show off those arms you’ve worked so hard for by going strapless! You could also go for a ballgown. The fullness of a ballgown will create a curvier silhouette. Click here to shop our ballgowns now!

Happy Wedding Dress Hunting!
