How to Find the Perfect Wedding Dress for Your Body Type​
By the full time you're ready to start wedding dress shopping, you've probably amassed a fairly nice-sized wish list about your dream gown site. But how will you find the best wedding dress for your body type? Most bridal shops will only let you book an hour-long appointment. And, while one hour is plenty of time to try on dresses, if you can narrow down your alternatives before stepping foot in the dressing room, you're set for a much more pleasant, laid-back shopping experience.
One easy solution to limit your alternatives is to choose the best wedding dress for your body type by finding a silhouette that'll highlight your best-loved assets and conceal your less-favorable traits. To start, figure out which of our five featured body types best defines your figure: Petite, plus size, busty, hourglass or lean and straight. And remember, you might not fit squarely into one category — a lot of people don t! Take Kim Kardashian: She's petite, busty and has (insane) hourglass curves. And, her wedding dress (ahem, the Givenchy Haute Couture one she wore many years back to marry Kanye West) with its sheath silhouette, modest neckline and waist-baring cut-outs, was the perfect complement to her shape.
Along side choosing the best gown for your body type, there are a few other things that can help make your wedding dress shopping experience as easy as possible. First, trust your consultant and don't be afraid to try on gowns he or she suggests that fall outside of your traditional comfort zone. Also shop with a supportive crew! Miss Negativity doesn't deserve a sacred spot on the "yay-or-nay" team. And finally, do your makeup and hair. It will soon be easier to assume wearing one of these simple gowns on your wedding if you never appear to be you only rolled out of bed.
