The A-Line or Princess Wedding Dress
This is the most forgiving style for all body types. It flatters everyone and it hides the tummy bulge. If you have a large bust, you’ll find this cut very flattering as it evens out your figure and gives a perfect silhouette. It also visually balances out other body shapes such as the Rectangle, Pear or Hour Glass shape.
The Empire Wedding Dress
This is popular wedding dress shape because of its forgiving nature; it suits and flatters all body types such as the Inverted Triangle, the Apple, the Pear and the Hour Glass. It usually has a high waistline, just beneath the bust, and then it falls to the ground. Pregnant brides prefer this wedding dress shape because it’s the most comfortable and allows for their rapidly changing shape without too much concern of problems with the fit.
The Sheath or Column Wedding Dress
This wedding dress runs down vertically from the shoulders to the floor with no flair. It is unlike the other wedding dress cuts. While any body shape can wear this, a super confident personality often best wears this style.
The Ball Gown Wedding Dress
This wedding dress cut is also referred to as the Fairy-Tale wedding dress, or the Cinderella wedding dress. It is fitted at the bodice and waist and this adds drama to the dress. It is particularly attractive on all body shapes.
