Choose a Princess wedding gown that flatters your figure!

How do you do pick one that is complimentary to your figure? Let's take a look at some basic silhouettes that you can consider.

The tips below are given to help you pick a princess bridal gown that is flattering to the rectangle, hourglass, pear shaped and apple shaped body types. If you have a balanced shape you can pretty much wear any style bridal dress.

In a nutshell... here are some basic fashion tips for princess style gowns. I only describe the bodice section of this dress style since the skirts are all full and the focus of this dress is on the neckline, bust and waist areas.

  • For the Rectangle body shape a bodice with angled ruching with a dropped waist bodice is very flattering for your body shape.
  • A Pear shaped body would look best in a natural waist or slightly dropped waist bodice, because this would focus attention on your upper body.
  • An apple shape body this isn't the best style choice for you, but you may be able to pull it off with a dropped waist style that stops about the abdomen and has a V-shaped waistline.
  • Most princess style wedding dresses will not show off your hourglass shape. But if you get a elongated dropped waist ball gown style bodice this will show off your curves.
  • Small busted brides have a hard time keeping this type of dress up if the neckline is strapless.
  • This is not the best style for short brides, because it will be overwhelming and make you look shorter. On the other hand this is a great style for tall brides.
