For many women getting married, their experience with their first dress may have been something their parents had them wear when they were younger. Or it may have been a prom dress, something for a night out, or even their wedding dress. Understanding more about your body will help you create a better fit when it comes to choosing the right dress. The style of your wedding dress can come later.

The following are some differences in body shapes to think about when shopping for a dress. Whether you’re looking to achieve a hip hugging look or something with more flare.

Straight Body Types Dresses: The Bust and hips are basically the same size. The waist is slightly smaller than the bust and hips.

Pear Body Type Dresses: The hips are larger than the bust and the hips have a shelf appearance. With the waist slightly smaller than the bust.

Spoon Body Type Dresses:  The hips are larger than the bust and the hips have a shelf appearance. The waist is slightly smaller than the bust.

Hour Glass Body Type Dresses: The bust and hips are basically the same size and the waist is well defined.

Inverted Triangle Body Type Dresses: The bust is large, hips are narrow and waist not very well defined.

Oval Body Type Dresses: The waist is larger than the bust and  hips. The hips are narrow compared to the shoulders. Breasts are ample size.

There aren’t defined measurements, there aren’t dresses made just for you. So the best way to find a dress that fits your body type is to check out our next blog! When it comes to dresses, most boutiques or bridal salons work by having the bride, bridesmaid try on a dress then they’ll order you one. Unlike places such as Macy’s or large box office chains where there are many more styles involved and they’re left in the stores. Please remember to get measurements and seek professional advice. We’ll discuss that later in these blogs.
