What's your shape? Some Do's & Don'ts
Next to style, fit is the most important aspect of finding the perfect dress. The best way to decide what look will be the most flattering on your body type is to first determine which “classification “ describes your body type best. Once you learn the basic do’s and don’ts go try everything on! You never know how it will look on you until you try it on.
You have a big chest, big hips, and a thin waist (curves in all the right places).
Your body is naturally proportioned, except for the small distance from your ribs to your hips.
Same as above, but instead of a short waist, yours is undefined: The line from your shoulders to your hips is straight.
More voluptuous than most, you've got full breasts, a bit of a tummy, and round hips and butt. (more to love!)
Just like the fruit, you're small on top and heavy on the bottom.
Short or tall, there's not a whole lot of meat on your bones. You boast that certain kind of ballerina beauty.
You're probably not the star of the basketball team -- you've got a tiny frame.
Keep in mind that while your weight may fluctuate between the time you buy your gown and the day of your wedding, your actual body type will remain the same. So even if you're planning to drop 20 pounds before the big day, choose the gown that fits your body type today. It is always better to have extra fabric to remove than to not have enough!
