There’s not one type of body shape, so why should there be one style of wedding dress? Fortunately, there are as many wedding dress shapes and sizes out there as there are body shapes, so you’re sure to find something for you. Your wedding dress should be one that flatters your curves, accentuating your body rather than “slimming” you or hiding your body. Looking for a dress that really compliments your curves? Here are some of our favorite dress styles:
Mermaid gowns seem perfectly designed to flatter curvy figures. These dresses are tight in the bodice and the beginning of the skirt, and then flare out towards the bottom of the skirt, similar to bell bottom jeans — or a mermaid fin. A long train, such as a chapel train, often perfectly accompanies this style of wedding gown.
Not everyone with curves has an hourglass figure. If you have a pear-shaped figure, meaning your hips are wider than your chest, you may like an A-Line dress to really accentuate and flatter your shape. A-Line gowns are known for slim bodices that stop at the waist, followed by a skirt that flares out in an almost angular fashion. They can look sharp and modern or classic, even rustic, such as our A-Line dress with a cap sleeve lace bodice.
Princess gowns are designed to look flattering on just about everyone. After all, your wedding is your special day, and who doesn’t want to feel like a princess at the end of her fairytale? But they’re especially flattering for curvy frames, with sweetheart necklines, intricate bodices and skirts that flare out in a soft way. These dresses can come with a train or without a train, and they look elegant and playful at the same time either way.
The perfect wedding dress for you will always be the dress that flatters your shape and accentuates the beauty you already have, rather than trying to “slim” the bride or hide her features. That’s why Fan C Designs offers our curvy bride collection, specifically to find dresses that flatter curvy brides. Still looking for the perfect dress? Check out our selection today.
