Wedding dresses come in all shapes and sizes, but how do you know what style will suit your frame? The team at Ingrida Bridal are here to help.
Besides finding a venue and confirming your guest list, one of the key steps following your engagement is finding the perfect wedding dress.
Different styles suit different body types, we all know this. You need to choose a gown that enhances and flaunts all your best features. From straight cuts to figure-hugging silhouettes and voluminous princess style dresses, there’s something to suit everyone’s shape.
Ball gown wedding dress
A ball gown with an extra full skirt and a fitted bodice has always been a popular dress silhouette.
It’s a very flattering option for hourglass-shaped women. The sophisticated style accentuates the waistline and hides every imperfection, instantly making a statement.
A-line silhouette wedding dress
This iconic style fits every occasion, looks absolutely amazing and is easy to wear. It’s an excellent choice for any shape, but especially for pear and inverted triangle figures. This is because it balances out the hips and shoulders and creates a curvier profile on more athletic brides.
Empire line wedding dress
The empire line gown is defined by its high waistline and flowing skirt, which covers the hips and tummy area. This makes it a great choice for pear-shaped brides with a smaller bust.
The simple yet stylish dress draws attention to the neckline, creating definition, and is a particularly good choice for pregnant brides.
Mermaid and trumpet-style wedding dress
This fit is perfect for showing off the bride’s feminine features as it’s s a more glamorous and fashionable version of a traditional wedding dress. It hugs the hips and flares out from mid thigh or knee to create a curvy silhouette. It is a must-have for slender brides with both petite and tall frame.
A sheath or column-style wedding dress
This style of gown fits snugly and elongates the silhouette from head to toe, without overwhelming the frame.
Its straight cut is best for petite brides with a slim and athletic figure, who prefer a minimalistic, classic and timelessly elegant wedding day look.
